According to theories, the clue lies within the release of Disney’s live-action remake of Mulan which lies at the centre of a huge marketing conspiracy.
A fan on Twitter summed up the speculation and said: “I predict a simultaneous release of #Mulan, #szechuan, and the rest of Season 4 from @RickandMorty.”
Another viewer took to Reddit and agreed: “My guess it was split so the second half would release when Mulan releases March 27th. So they could do a dual szechuan sauce promotion.”
To explain this sensational theory, fans have to look back to season three when a throwaway gag in the premiere took the Rick and Morty community by storm.
