Rick and Morty, the phenomenally popular American animated show is set to crash land into terrestrial telly schedules after Channel 4 has announced buying up the exclusive UK rights to the cartoon’s forthcoming fourth series.
The acquisition is part of an exciting deal that Channel 4 has signed with Rick and Morty’s parent network, Adult Swim. In addition to airing the all-important, all-new episodes of the omnipresent animation, fans of Adult Swim’s signature cocktail of slightly-gross surrealism will be able to access a whole plethora of content via the British broadcaster’s All 4 streaming service.
So if you’ve been waiting for a (legal) way to access the likes of Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! or The Eric Andre Show from the comfort of your own laptop, you’re in luck.
Channel 4’s director of programmes, Ian Katz, is reported as saying, “_Rick and Morty_ is one of the most anarchic, ingenious and original shows around and the breakthrough animated hit of recent years. I’m thrilled that it’s coming to Channel 4 and E4.”
Channel 4’s youth-orientated station E4 will be broadcasting the first three series’ of Rick and Morty in coming months, so if you’ve managed to not see a single second of the show, now’s your chance to strap in and buff up on a cult sensation.
