There's an excellent theory that Season 4 of Rick and Morty could drop over Christmas
Wubba lubba dub dub if this happens.
There's absolutely no point in trying to decipher what makes sense in the multiverses of Rick and Morty. Christ, we've literally seen Jerry folding himself 12 times and a theme park being created inside the body of a hobo.
Those things are tame in comparison to what unfolds in the beloved cartoon.
Even the creators of the show refuse to adhere to the strict logic of premiere dates and traditional TV structures.
Case in point, remember that joyous evening when Dan Harmon decided to just release the first episode of Season, The Rickshank Rickdemption, without any warning, clues, or hints.
It's ironic because in a show that revolves around the smartest man in the universe, logic really doesn't apply.
This being said, when Adult Swim aired the Season 3 finale, The Rickchurian Mortydate, it came with a post-credits scene that featured everyone's favourite supporting character, Mr. Poopybutthole and his family.
Turning to the camera, he says directly, “See ya for Season 4 in like … a really long time! I might even have a big, white Santa Claus beard!”
Ok, that could be a very frivolous remark and we're taking things with a Dimension C-137-sized pinch of salt, but when combined with another easter egg, it could genuinely be true.

During the Season 2 post-credits scene (which aired October 4, 2015), Mr. Poopybutthole said: “tune into Rick and Morty Season 3 — in like — a year and a half … or longer!”
For those that know their calendar dates, The Rickshank Rickdemption (Season 3 premiere) aired on April 1, 2017. That's almost exactly a year and a half.
*On this note, can we take Mr. Poopybutthole at his word when he said that we're going to be seeing him with a "big, white Santa Claus beard?"
Could this 'potential' Christmas special mark the start of Season 4? After all, Season 3 kicked-off with an April Fool’s Day episode and it didn’t return on a regular basis until July of that year.
We'd definitely be in favour of having a Rick-mas.
*FYI, this genuinely could be the strangest sentence that this writer has ever written. Long may it continue!
