The highly successful Rick & Morty series from Warner Bros Home Entertainment released season 4 of the show on Blu-ray this week. Rick and Morty: Season 4 smashed sales expectations, debuting at the top of the NPD VideoScan First Alert chart.
With rumors circulating since 2017 about the release date of season 4, fans of the show waited nearly four years for the recent installment of the show. Creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon claim the show drains them of their creativity, which is one reason why the release of the fourth season took so long.
The fan response to Rick & Morty: Season 4 is overwhelming, with message boards across the internet on fire with speculation on the release date of the 5th season or whether there will be a 5th season at all. Roiland and Harmon end the final episode on a cryptic note, with mixed messages about the show’s future.
Rick & Morty: Season 4 follows on from Sony Pictures Outlander: Season Five, making for a rare appearance of TV show titles dominating the top spot for two weeks running. Rick & Morty: Season 4 sold 12% more copies than the Disney Halloween title, “Hocus Pocus,” holding the second spot on the charts this week.
