Harmon told Entertainment Weekly: “I think it’s safe to say without fear of being wrong that the gap between seasons three and four will be the longest and last time that it’s ever so long that it’s ridiculous.
“I don’t know how fast we can do it, but I know it will never be this long again.
“There were so many things that had to be settled before we even started season four, and it’s really safe to say we’re literally writing season five while finishing season four just to force ourselves to commit to a certain schedule.”
Episode five airs tonight on Adult Swim at 11:30pm Eastern Standard Time.
Thankfully this year, UK fans did not have to wait long for the show to arrive on this side of the Atlantic.
