In a post via the Channel 4 website, the new series of Emmy award-winning Rick and Morty is to premiere exclusively on Channel 4 in the UK. Seasons 1-3 will also begin broadcasting on E4 from February.
Ian Katz, Channel 4 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.
Karl Warner, Controller E4 said,
Adult Swim’s amazing mix of original ideas and anarchic comedy is the perfect brand partner in E4’s evolution.
Charlie Palmer, Managing Editor All 4, said,
Adult Swim is a fantastic brand with a clear proposition and a devoted fan base. I’m delighted to have it join VICE and Walter Presents as a featured channel on All 4.
