How to watch Rick and Morty season 4 online

The second half of Rick and Morty season 4 is set to premiere on Sunday, May 3 at 11.30 PM EST (8.30 PM PST). As with the first half of the season which aired in November and December of 2019, it will consist of five new episodes. These will broadcast on a weekly basis throughout the month of March.

We’re only recommending official sources for watching Rick and Morty season 4 online. While unlicensed streams may be available, they’re generally not worth your time or effort. One reason for this is that unauthorized sources can be taken offline for copyright infringement. Combine this with inferior video quality, lots of lag, and long buffering times and it becomes clear that this method will most likely cause you to miss out on some of Rick and Morty season 4.

Rick and Morty season 4 is only available on region-locked platforms. As such, you’ll need to connect to a VPN in order to live stream episodes from abroad.

How to watch Rick and Morty season 4 online with a VPN

VPNs hide your real IP address, replacing it with that of the server you’re connected to. This means that if you use a US-based server, you can trick American streaming services into letting you use them abroad. Sound confusing? Don’t worry; here’s a step-by-step guide to watching Rick and Morty season 4 online from anywhere:

  1. Sign up with a VPN service. We recommend ExpressVPN. However, CyberGhost and NordVPN are two great value alternatives.
  2. Download and install the appropriate VPN app (or browser extension) for your device.
  3. Open the VPN app and connect to a server in the appropriate location. For instance, use a server in the US to unblock Adult Swim or a British one to access All 4 abroad.
  4. Visit your chosen website, create an account (if required), and sign in.
  5. Finally, try playing an episode. It should now play without any issues. If the content is still blocked, try clearing your browser’s cache and cookies.

Rick and Morty season 4 is being broadcast on Channel 4, which means you can watch it completely free-of-charge on All 4. You’ll have to be quick, though, as new episodes are only available for 30 days after airing, and there’s no concrete information as to where you’ll be able to watch when they’re removed (odds are Netflix UK will get season 4 at some point, but there’s no telling when).

Channel 4 content is geo-restricted and only available in the UK. If you’re traveling abroad, you can access All 4 by obtaining a UK IP address via a VPN.

What can we expect from Rick and Morty season 4?

There will be a total of 10 episodes in season 4. While the first five episodes aired in November and December, 2019, the remaining five are to broadcast weekly in March 2020. As always, there are some interesting episode titles which include “Never Ricking Morty” and “Childrick of Mort”.

As in previous seasons, most episodes are self-contained adventures, so don’t expect a long-running, intricately-woven narrative. That said, season 4 has some of the most memorable episodes to date, including one involving snakes, space programs, and subterfuge.

All of the key cast members return. This includes Justin Roiland as characters Rick and Morty, Chris Parnell as Jerry, Spencer Grammer as Summer, and Sarah Chalke as Beth.
