While Rick & Morty fans are waiting for the debut of season five, the show’s writers have already begun work on season seven. Adult Swim renewed the popular animated series for a whopping 70 episodes in 2018, which will cover an unknown number of seasons. Season five of the show currently has no official release date yet, but it’s clear that plenty more of the show is on the way.
Though Rick & Morty has been around for the better part of a decade, only four seasons have been released due to production delays. Recently, writer Alex Rubens took to Twitter to announce that that he’s already done work for season seven.
Am I allowed to say we started writing Rick and Morty Season 7? (If not we didn’t and I’m not)

Season four wasn’t a favourite among fans or critics of the show, but it still delivered on sharp writing, weird sc-fi comedy and animation. Here’s hoping that these new episodes don’t mean a drop in quality for the show.
