Rick and Morty Season 4 premiere ended up on PornHub

Rick and Morty fans have been eagerly anticipating the next series of the adult animated show, and last night, Christmas came early for those looking for a slightly different form of adult entertainment on PornHub.

Hours before the show was scheduled to premiere on E4 in the UK, Edge Of Tomorty: Rick Die Rickpeat was uploaded to the X-rated site.

If you haven't seen it yet, this is the trailer for Rick and Morty season four: 

Needless to say, fans of the hit show were quick to express their delight, with one taking to social media to write: "I just watched the newest episode of Rick and Morty on Pornhub. Honestly, life is crazy. The future is here, and it's confusing."

And it wasn't long before others began to admit they'd got to see the show early after finding it in an, um, unusual place, with someone else adding: "So don't ask me how I found this but you could watch new Rick and Morty eps on pornhub… idk you're welcome."

E4 had initially planned to release season four much later, however, demand from fans prompted the channel into making its release more in line with the American one.

Reactions to the first episode have been extremely positive, with Den Of Geek describing season four as "the good, solid, sci-fi punch in the face we all needed."

Collider was a big fan of the episode too, writing: "If the Season 4 premiere is any indication, we're in for a helluva ride this season, even if it's a short one."

This will be music to Avengers star Chris Evans' ears. The celeb superfan recently shared a homemade tribute to the show on Twitter ahead of the release of season four.
