Rick and Morty season 4 has arrived on UK Netflix and a certain talking cat has fans themselves talking. Could we see a return?
We’ve been spoilt with great TV so far this year, especially over on Netflix.
The popular streaming service has delivered such new gems as Tiger King and White Lines, as well as rolling out new seasons for fond favourites.
For some time now, fans of Rick and Morty have been eagerly anticipating the fourth season to hit Netflix. Fortunately, the time has come and the show’s admirers have had a good old binge, unpacking new characters in one of the best seasons yet.
Arriving back in 2013, the show has earned a dedicated following like none of its contemporaries, becoming one of the most intensely adored animated shows in years… perhaps ever.
So, it’s hardly surprising to see more talent hop aboard for the latest batch of episodes.
Rick and Morty: Who voices Talking Cat?
In Rick and Morty, Matthew Broderick lends his voice to the character of Talking Cat.
It appeared in the episode ‘Claw and Hoarder: Special Ricktim’s Morty’ and fans were confused as to how it could talk. The questions didn’t exactly end there either!
As for the voice actor, the 58-year-old is arguably best known as the titular rebel in John Hughes’ 1986 classic, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.
Other notable movies he’s been in include The Cable Guy (he played Steven M. Kovacs), Godzilla (Dr. Niko Tatopoulos), Election (Jim McAllister), Inspector Gadget (titular role), The Stepford Wives (Walter Kresby), Tower Heist (Mr Fitzhugh), Manchester by the Sea (Jeffrey).
Fans of the 1994 Disney masterpiece The Lion King will remember him as the voice of Simba.
More recently, he played Michael Burr in the Netflix horror-comedy series Daybreak, Dr. David Miller in Better Things and also voiced the dad in 2019’s Wonder Park.
Talking Cat may be back!
If you’re a fan of the cat, you’ll be happy to hear that Chris Parnell (who voices Jerry) has hinted that it could return in an interview with Digital Spy.
When asked if the cat could come back, he contemplated:
“You never can tell. It depends on if they… You know, we’re lucky enough to know we’re going to be doing quite a few episodes. They do like to bring things back every now and then. The interdimensional cable, I guess, was the most popular one. Matthew Broderick was great as the cat. It wouldn’t be a problem bringing him back.”
We’re sure the fans would be happy for more…
Fans flock to Twitter
A number of fans have tweeted out their thoughts since the episode first aired, voicing their hopes for more answers.
