Rick and Morty have dominated the scene since the release of its fourth season last month.
For those unfamiliar, the 30-minute animated show is a little bit like a cross between Back to the Future and a David Cronenberg movie, with a lot of dark humor thrown in for good measure… and it’s proved pretty popular with viewers.
But for some, the recent season 4 of the show simply wasn’t enough… so Pringles have stepped in to save the day.

It’s been 2 years since we’ve last had our Rick and Morty fix.
The smash-hit sci-fi animation wrapped up its third season back in 2017 – leaving a weighty mad-scientist shaped void in our lives.
The show follows the intergalactic antics of an eccentric (and alcoholic) mad scientist, Rick, and his every-so-anxious grandson, Morty.
Much to Beth’s husband’s disapproval, Rick moves into the family home – and soon after embarks on ridiculous sci-fi adventures through time and space with his fourteen-year-old grandson, all while trying to balance conventional life.
From parasite infestations and to battling a weird rendition of Freddie Krueger to pickle Rick and of course, Mr. Meeseeks, the show hasn’t fallen short of “what the hell” moments – but that’s why we all love it so much.
Praised by both fans and critics across the world, it comes as no surprise that the demand for a fourth season has been off the scale.
Rick and Morty has been hailed as one of the funniest and ingenious shows on TV right now, which many put down to the perfect blend of mind-bogglingly iconic plotlines and its unique ability to fuse together moments of tragedy and sheer hilarity.
And with each of the season proving equally as popular, it comes as no surprise that fans quickly demanded a fourth installment.
There was a solid 3-year gap between seasons 1 and 2, but only a 1.5-year gap between the next 2 seasons.
The announcement came from a video Adult Swim put on their YouTube channel, which featured both Rick and Morty awkwardly announcing the new season.
Great job, Morty. You really nailed that announcement.
The fourth season went down very well.
It went down so well, in fact, that it scored an amazing one hundred percent on Rotten Tomatoes.
If the release of season 4 wasn’t enough for you all, Pringles have announced something pretty exciting.
Pickle Rick was the episode in season 3 when Rick, believe it or not, was transformed into a talking pickle.
Fans of this episode are in for a real treat now Pringles have announced that they are releasing a very special “Pickle Rick” edition.
The “Once You Pop You Can’t Stop” chip company has decided to make a limited offering of pickle-flavored chips for their American customers.
The new flavor will be dished out until the Super Bowl next year in February.
Gareth Maguire, senior director of marketing for Pringles said in a statement, “We want to do something completely new for the brand for the 2020 Big Game and are thrilled to be partnering with Adult Swim and Rick and Morty, a show which continues to grow in popularity year after year and enjoys a cult fan following.”
“We hope the new special edition Pickle Rick flavor will be a hit with the show’s fans.”
Senior vice president for marketing and partnerships Jill King said, “We’re very thoughtful about who we partner with around Rick and Morty and we couldn’t be more pleased with our new relationship with Pringles.”
“Not only are the Rick and Morty show creators making a hilarious spot for the Big Game, we’re extending this partnership in really exciting ways, all year long. Rick and Morty fans are going to be given amazing new opportunities to illustrate their love for this iconic show, thanks to Pringles,” she went on to say.
