Update: Director of Programmes at Channel 4, Ian Katz, has revealed that the Rick and Morty season 4 UK air date has been shifted forward to Wednesday, November 20 at 10pm. The original story follows.

Looking for the Rick and Morty season 4 UK air date? Sorry, it’s not this Sunday. Unlike those across the pond in the United States – who get to watch the premiere on November 10 – the Rick and Morty season 4 UK release date is set for January 2020 exclusively on Channel 4.

While Channel 4 hasn’t zeroed in on anything more specific than this January, it’s not all bad news. The new Rick and Morty season 4 episodes will be available to stream after airing on on-demand service All 4, while repeats will also be shown on E4.

Rick and Morty season 4 will air in two parts, with five episodes airing across November and December in the US and January in the UK. Another five are still to come at an undisclosed date.

This follows on from more disappointing news for UK fans, who also have to wait for a Disney Plus UK release date of March 31, over four months after the US launch of November 12.

Still, that’s nothing on the two year gap since season 3 made everyone go crazy over Szechuan sauce. It’s just nice to have Rick, Morty, and everyone from Mr. Poopybutthole to, yes, even Jerry, back on our screens very, very soon.
