The creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon have committed to a quicker turnaround for upcoming seasons. As per Harmon, season 3 taught him some lessons and he was ready for more number of episodes during the season 4 discussion.
Initially, Harmon wanted a greater number of episodes in season 4. Adult Swim took months to renew ‘Rick and Morty’ following the season 3 finale. But when it got renewed, the network asked Harmon and Roland for delivering 70 episodes.
