Season 4 of US animated series Rick and Morty will air on Channel 4 in the UK, it's been announced.

Up until now the show has only been available on Netflix.

But Channel 4 will air the new season later this year, as well as seasons 1-3 on sister channel E4 from February. In addition, episodes will be available to stream for free by UK viewers from All4.

Alongside Rick and Morty, Channel 4 has announced the rights for a number of other Adult Swim shows including Robot Chicken, The Venture Bros, Aqua Teen Hunger Force and Squidbillies.

A range of episodes will air on E4 while more than 300 will be made available online from All4.

Ian Katz, Channel 4 Director of Programmes, said “Rick and Morty is one of the most anarchic, ingenious and original shows around and the breakthrough animated hit of recent years. I’m thrilled that it’s coming to Channel 4 and E4.”

Karl Warner, Controller E4 said, “Adult Swim’s amazing mix of original ideas and anarchic comedy is the perfect brand partner in E4’s evolution.”

Charlie Palmer, Managing Editor All 4, added, “Adult Swim is a fantastic brand with a clear proposition and a devoted fan base. I’m delighted to have it join VICE and Walter Presents as a featured channel on All 4.”

Pierre Branco, SVP & GM, Northern Europe for Turner commented: “We are incredibly excited to be partnering with Channel 4 to bring Adult Swim’s eclectic mix of weirdly wonderful and surreal shows to audiences here in the UK.

"In this unique collaboration with Channel 4, we are creating a branded destination that will reach fans, new and old, across TV and VOD, building on the huge success of Adult Swim in the US.”
