All Of Us 'Rick And Morty' Fans Are Anxiously Awaiting Season 4

The question plaguing fans across the country still remains: Where the hell is the fourth season of "Rick and Morty"?

All Of Us 'Rick And Morty' Fans Are Anxiously Awaiting Season 4

Rick and Morty debuted in 2013 and has since built a strong foundation as a possible hallmark classic of cartoons, similar to shows like the Simpsons or Family Guy. With a combination of wacky side characters, crazy adventures and even crazier inventions, the misadventures of the drunken scientist and the underconfident teenager took the world by storm.

In only three seasons (31 episodes), the show has single-handedly developed a cult-like following that has kept the hype strong since the series' end in 2017.

I mean, let's just take a look at social media. If you go onto Instagram right now and search "Rick and Morty," you'll see numerous hashtags and accounts flooded with content, followers, and views. The show's Instagram account has over 3 million followers, and the fan and meme pages have anywhere from 10,000-1 million followers. Even the hashtag is so trendy that #rickandmorty has almost as many posts as the account has followers.

People across the globe have whole-heartedly fell in love with "Rick and Morty" to the point that they are willing to ink their body with tattoos spewing things like "Rick and Morty 100 years," "Pickle Rick!," the iconic catchphrase "Wabalubadubdub!," and all kinds of other images.


With a fanbase that has heavily embraced the show through meme culture, cosplay, and even tattoos, the show has taken the entertainment world by storm in only two years of being on the air.

But now we are sitting here over two years later, and we still are stuck getting our "Rick and Morty" fix off of re-runs on Adult Swim or on Hulu.

We have been given signs that a fourth season is definitely going to be a thing. At the end of the last episode, the beloved Mr. Poopybutthole informed us that it would be a long time, but the show is coming back. Adult Swim and show co-creator Justin Roiland even doubled down on this notion in May 2018 when they announced 70 episodes were in the making. Yes, you heard correctly - 70 freaking episodes.


Unfortunately, without a release date, all we can do is wait in sheer angst and anticipation.

With the ending being so vague and fans clamoring for answers - like what will the plot be, if there will be any character returns, and does Mr. PoopyButthole ever grows that beard? - we all are stuck waiting in distress.

I do not know about everyone else, but I'm starting to think that I need an episode or two to hold me over. Maybe even just a really nice trailer that references the fan favorite "Pickle Rick!" episode. Is that too much to ask for? I mean, they did say they had 70 more episodes in the works. I, along with many others, was satisfied with ten episodes a season, so just a glimpse of what is to come could go along way.

With loyal fans who love the show for its ridiculousness, adventure, and lovable characters, I don't see the hype for this show dying down. But after two years of nothing new, we fans have to get something to hold us over! We need the creators to "Get Swifty" with these episodes before the show becomes a tease of a potential classic.


For now, we'll hold on strong hoping that 2019 or 2020 will be our year. In the meantime, we'll be kicking our feet up, sitting back, and watching the shenanigans rage on as if it were the first time.

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.


Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

I Watched 'The Social Dilemma' And YIKES, I'm Terrified For The Next Generation's Mental Health

Millennials can remember a time without online social affirmation, but we may be the last ones.

One Indictment, Three Charges, And No Justice For Breonna Taylor

We can't settle for this decision or a system that is fundamentally broken and unequal.


On March 13, 26-year-old Breonna Taylor was fatally shot in her apartment by police who were executing a "no-knock" warrant. Since then, there have been rallying efforts both in the streets and on social media demanding justice for Taylor and keeping her name known.

I’m OK With Hooking Up On The First Date, But That DOESN'T Make Me Easy

2020 has been a crazy year. And yet, women being comfortable with our bodies still seems to be a big topic in mass media.


I'm an adult. There is no reason I can't have consensual sex with someone on the first date. It does NOT make me easy, and it does not mean I'll have sex with just anyone the first time I meet them.

Nothing! There is no reason to feel guilty about food and nourishing your body. It's time to make peace with food and stop focusing on the "good" or "bad," "right" or "wrong" because food does not have power over you.

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

Anjanette Tan

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinologist who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

This $40 Silk Sleep Mask Gives Me The Best Sleep I've Ever Had — I Never Go Anywhere Without It

Crane And Canopy just redefined the meaning of "beauty sleep".


- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.
