Cartoon Rick and Morty made a comeback to Adult Swim earlier this month and viewers have loved season four so far. The UK start date was also put forward after an outburst from fans when they realised the show wasn’t going to start on Channel 4 until 2020. Here’s why Rick and Morty isn’t on this week.
Only three episodes of the latest series have been released but so far, it’s gone down a treat.
From the never-ending deaths of characters in the first episode, to toilet sagas and heist movie takedowns galore, this series has proved worth the wait.
However, season four’s fourth episode will not be on tonight.
But what is the reason behind the delay in the airing of the next show?

Adult Swim, the channel behind Rick and Morty, has not given an official reason why the show isn’t being shown.
However, this weekend is Thanksgiving weekend and, like many popular American shows such as NCIS and Riverdale, this could be why the show has taken a week off.
New episodes of Rick and Morty typically premiere Sundays at 11.30pm but the channel could have decided it would be better to push it back rather than risk losing Adult Swim in-transit viewers.
But there is no need to worry as the show will be returning very soon.
