Don’t believe us? We have the numbers to prove.
For comparison, the series has an average of 26.1 deaths in each episode. TWENTY-SIX. Westworld is right behind it, with 25.9 deaths in average. Third, comes the Walking Dead, whose showrunners only kill an average of 23.2 characters per episode. What about American Horror Story? Only a 5.8 average, children’s play.
Even though the numbers seem high, Rick And Morty hasn’t killed more characters than other shows overall. The series had 808 in its three seasons, around 261 deaths in each.
When all seasons are counted, shows like the Walking Dead and Supernatural end up winning… but who knows what will happen if the show keeps going. Season four is already in the works, and one thing is for sure: We can expect more deaths.
Rick And Morty Season 4
Rick And Morty recently got picked up for a massive 70-episode order, and with Back To The Future‘s Christopher Lloyd wanting to make an appearance, there’s a definite possibility fans could see more of Rick’s family.
Adult Swim’s renewal of the show has been in the making for quite some time, but it looks like they were finally able to come up with a deal that satisfied both parties.
Described as a “long-term deal,” we’re sure that we’ll be getting to see episodes of the show for years to come…not that we’re complaining! There’s not a lot of details regarding the new deal, but we can only guess that the new episodes won’t air until later in 2019.
However, you can catch the characters before that. On Nov. 8, they will be live streaming Bethesda’s latest installment of their post-apocalyptic universe, Fallout 76. Pro gamer Ninja and rapper Logic will join Rick and Morty for the event. You can check out more information about the event here.
