‘Rick & Morty’ Season 4 Netflix Global Release Schedule 2020

Rick & Morty season 4 – Picture: Adult Swim

Rick & Morty is heading back for its final five episodes of season 4 on AdultSwim and many regions of Netflix around the world still get new seasons added. Here’s a complete breakdown of if and when Rick & Morty season 4 will be added to your Netflix and when. 

At this point, Rick & Morty really doesn’t require much introduction given the cultural phenomenon it has become over the past few years.

The space-traveling adventures of Rick & Morty have seen several seasons released thus far with plenty of specials released onto Adult Swims social media pages.

The fourth season aired its first five episodes between November and December 2019 with the final five now due out on May 3rd, 2020 and wrapping up on May 31st, 2020.

Netflix also featured in season 4 of Rick and Morty with a casual jab at the easiness that it takes to get a show greenlit at Netflix. South Park technically was first but this was just as funny.

Let’s first cover a few of the major regions that don’t get new seasons of Rick & Morty just to save you some time.


Why isn’t Rick & Morty on Netflix in the US

Unlike some of the regions we’ll move onto, Rick & Morty has never been available on Netflix in the United States. The AdultSwim show has instead been available via streaming through Hulu although that will be changing slightly in 2020.

From later this year, both Hulu and HBO Max will be sharing the license to Rick & Morty. It’s unclear whether Netflix will be able to get in on the action too but it seems increasingly unlikely.

As Netflix Life notes, Hulu isn’t expected to get Rick & Morty season 4 until later in the year possibly October. HBO Max will likely get season 4 in a similar time frame.


Will Rick & Morty Season 4 be on Netflix in the UK?

Netflix UK was a tricky one. We had suspected that season 4 would never come to Netflix UK given that new episodes have been going exclusively to Channel 4 and their 4oD service.

However, in May 2020, we got word that yes, Rick & Morty season 4 is coming to Netflix and will arrive in full on June 16th, 2020.

 


When season 4b of Rick & Morty will be on Netflix internationally

Many regions of Netflix, however, also get timely updates of Rick & Morty too.

These include (the full list via Unogs) Netflix Australia, Argentina, Brazil, Hong Kong, Israel, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands, most of mainland Europe, Spain and India.

These regions have already seen the first five episodes of Rick & Morty added exactly one week after its US finale date.

With that said, Netflix Australia and the aforementioned regions can expect season 4B to be added to Netflix on June 7th, 2020.

We hope that clears up the rather complicated streaming plans for Rick & Morty on Netflix around the world. Are you looking forward to the final batch of season 4 hitting Netflix? Let us know down below.
