Channel 4 has announced that they exclusively broadcast the highly anticipated fourth season of Rick and Morty in the UK.

No release date for the upcoming episodes has been announced. Meanwhile, the previous three seasons of the acclaimed animation will be shown on E4, starting in February.

Netflix previously showed Rick and Morty in the UK and it remains unclear whether the show will remain on the streaming service.

The news comes amid a new deal between Adult Swim and Channel 4, which will see the American network’s shows become available on All 4 over the coming years.

Adult Swim shows confirmed to be coming to Channel 4 include Robot Chicken, The Venture Bros, Mostly 4 Millennials, Mr Pickles, The Eric Andre Show and Tim and Eric Awesome Show.

Ian Katz, Channel 4’s Director of Programmes, said: 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.”

Rick and Morty has become a cult hit across the globe and won rave reviews from critics. Co-creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland previously announced that 70 more episodes of the show have been commissioned by Adult Swim, although no release date has been announced.
