Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon imagine Rick and Morty's future in a Simpsons fashion.

Rick and Morty just dropped its 4th season for its American audience and there are already a lot of speculations and reactions regarding the show's possible future. Despite what some of the obnoxious Rick and Morty fans expect from the show, the showrunners themselves signed a new deal with Adult Swim. Rick and Morty now have a 100 episode deal signed between the two, guaranteeing quite a few more seasons after the current one.
 
Back in July showrunner and creator Justin Roiland said “On any given day you’ll feel like this thing can go for 20, 30 seasons, we have characters that don’t really age, it’s very Simpsons-Esque. There’s so much we can do to keep riding this train.”
 
While Rick and Morty escape TV expectations in its content its form has always remained the same. No matter what the adventure the basic characteristics of all the primary characters remain the same. This explains why the creators would want a future like that of The Simpsons. Despite its long run, the Simpsons too had stuck to Homer being just a stupid drunk American Dad. The form works. And it will continue to be recreated until it stops working for the audience.
 
Rick and Morty Season 4 drops on Netflix India in late December 2019.
