Rick and Morty left us hanging when they went on a sudden hiatus back in December 2019, but they are finally returning and made sure to give us everything we wanted.

Adult Swim announced on April Fools (of course they did) that the beloved sci-fi cartoon will be returning to TV on 3 May (7 May for us in the UK).

And after a lifetime of waiting, we got to preview episode six of season four and its a whirlwind 22 minutes filled with new zany characters and a little too much self-awareness.

Each season usually consists of one episode of Interdimensional Cable (or season 3s Morty Mindblowers), where Rick and Morty watch random and completely insane sketches from parallel universes cable TV.

From Tiny Bits and Little Legs to Eyehole Man and an extremely gruesome commercial for Lucky Charms, these episodes have some seriously quotable moments.

This time, however, the concept is similar but both Rick and Morty become parts of these wacky moments all while fighting bad guys in space.

Our beloved characters are all about breaking the fourth wall and even going beyond it, which is a quirk of the show weve always loved.

What made Interdimensional Cable scenes so perfect was the simple fact that they all felt improvised and random, which is not the case this time.

The universes smartest man and his not-so-smart grandson become part of these short stories whether they like it or not and try to come up with new tales between each fight scene.

Theres no point judging how cool (or pointless) the new characters are as Rick and Morty make sure to do it for us: to their faces.

We also get to see all of Ricks former lovers and, oh jeez, theres a lot of em.

You know what else he has a lot of? Enemies, and we get to meet them too.

Its a lot to shove into one episode, but we doubt Rick cares about what we have to say.

What makes their return episode so epic is the return of basically every minor character weve seen over the last four seasons, and theyre all back with a vengeance.

Dont bother dwelling too much about whether the script and wild scenes fit with the overarching storyline, because writers Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland (a fan of being meta and all) made sure to mention all the cheap shots that happen in the episode.

They know exactly what theyre doing, and theyll do it when they want.

So sit down, let Rick and Morty do whatever the hell they want, and enjoy.

Rick and Morty returns on 7 May at 10pm on E4.
