If you're still looking for ways to say good riddance to a bleak year, the official Rick and Morty Twitter account has something for you: a short clip of Rick giving several trademark pessimistic reactions.
"Year over," the account tweeted on New Year's Day, with a 19-second clip of Rick's spinning head on a "Rick Boy" screen.
The account also tweeted short Christmas-related Rick and Morty clips in December. They are similarly dark and disturbing.
This sliver of Rick and Morty content might be disappointing to fans impatient for new episodes. Adult Swim renewed the show for 70 episodes in the middle of 2018, and co-creator Justin Roiland promised that turnaround for episodes would be quicker than in the past. But the fourth season, arriving in late 2019, continued the show's pattern of around two years between seasons.
"We're super excited that, for the first time ever, we're locked in, we know what the future is, we have job security," Roiland said in June 2018. "[Co-creator Dan] Harmon is in great spirits, we have a great writer's room. We want the episodes to stay good, but we do also want to try to turn them around a little quicker now that we have this big order, I think it gives us the ability to be faster."
Fans are now hoping the break between seasons 4 and 5 won't be as lengthy. Luckily, according to Harmon, the coronavirus pandemic hasn't significantly hampered work on season 5.
