We’ve learned precious little about season four of Rick and Morty, other than its November premiere date, those two very recent image glimpses, and that its planning involved a hell of a lot of Post-It notes. But at its San Diego Comic-Con panel, we finally got a peek at what’s to come from co-creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland.
Joining the executive producers and co-creators (Roiland also voices both of the title characters) were Spencer Grammer (who plays Summer, Morty’s older sister), Sarah Chalke (who plays Rick’s daughter, Beth, the mother of Summer and Morty) and Chris Parnell (who plays Beth’s on-again, off-again husband, Jerry, as well as dad to Summer and Morty).
We didn’t get a trailer, but we did get some first-look clips, as well as repeated reassurances that the long gaps between seasons that Rick and Morty fans have become grimly accustomed to are finally a thing of the past. In fact, Roiland said that the team has already begun work on season five, even with a few months left to go before season four is ready for the airwaves.
