There might be a “Rick and Morty” episode this holiday.

It has been over a year since “Rick and Morty” graced the small screen and fans are already excited for the next season. However, the creators haven’t announced an official release date for season 4 yet, but they might give their supporters a treat this holiday.

According to Corey Plante of Inverse, there’s a “decent amount of evidence” to support the claims that there will be a Christmas episode for “Rick and Morty.” The season 3 finale, “The Rickchurian Mortydate,” included a post-credit scene featuring Mr. Poopybutthole and his family.

“See ya for Season 4 in like … a really long time! I might even have a big, white Santa Claus beard!” he said while looking straight to the camera.

If Mr. Poopybutthole grew a Santa Claus beard that would mean that the next episode will be airing around Christmas. It’s already been over a year and two months since "Rick and Morty" Season 3 finale, so the date is highly possible to be the new season’s premiere.

In 2017, Adult Swim shocked fans by airing the premiere episode of "Rick and Morty" Season 3 on April Fool’s Day without any announcement. Thus, many are looking forward to the new season’s premiere date.

"Rick and Morty" Season 4 has been renewed with an order for a total of 70 episodes, which means there will be more fun and adventures. This might also mean a longer wait for the audience.

According to Ryan Ridley, one of the voice actors and producers, the next season might not be ready until 2019. He didn’t provide an exact date but said that "Rick and Morty" Season 4 might not be up until late 2019.

It took months before Adult Swim renewed "Rick and Morty" Season 4. It came to a point where fans wondered if the creators would pitch the series to other networks or streaming services like Netflix and Amazon.

Amid the confusion, creator Dan Harmon expressed his confidence that they would get another season in the same network. According to him, his instincts were telling him that they were “due for a return threshold.”
