Rick & Morty series 4 coming to the UK

Channel 4 confirms January broadcast

Series four of Rick & Morty will air on Channel 4 in January, the broadcaster has announced.

The first five episodes launch in the US from Sunday, with a second run promised for some time in the future.

Created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon, the series follows a sociopathic genius scientist who drags his inherently timid grandson on insanely dangerous adventures across the universe.  

Ian Katz, Channel 4’s director of programmes said: "Millions of fans have been waiting for more than two years for a new series of Rick and Morty, the most brilliantly bonkers show on television. We’re thrilled that it will be aired exclusively on Channel 4 and I promise it will be worth the wait.’

The titles of the episodes are Edge of Tomorty: Rick Die Rickpeat; The Old Man and the Seat; One Crew Over The Crewcoo's Morty; Claw and Hoarder: Special Ricktim's Morty and Rattlestar Ricklactica.

They will air on Channel 4, be repeated on E4, and available on demand via All 4.

The broadcast rights form part of a deal with Rick and Morty  production team Adult Swim.

LA PRINCESA DE WOKING

Emma Sidi has taken great care to replicate the authentic feel of 1980s Spanish-language telenovelas in this spot-on parody, set in contemporary small-town England and which she describes as 'a bit Acorn Antiques, bit Garth Marenghi'.

At her mother's untimely funeral, Becky Hello (a typical British millennial as imagined by Mexican writers who have never been to the UK) discovers she has inherited a fortune. But it isn't long before nefarious family members begin to circle, and Becky must keep her wits about her if she is to avoid the same fate as her mother.
