Updated, November 17: Bad news guys, you'd better make the most of Rick and Morty while it remains on Netflix.

It now appears that all three seasons of the show are being removed in a matter of days, Netflix UK now listing it as available until November 21.

So if you've yet to watch the cult series or just fancy another binge or two, you'd better get schwifty right now.

Updated, October 12: Time to get schwifty, as after all that it appears that Rick and Morty season one is back on Netflix for UK users, suggesting that a new deal has been struck.

However, it is unclear as to whether seasons two and three will still be dropped from the streaming giant, and Digital Spy has reached out to Netflix for clarification.

Updated, October 8: Rick and Morty's second and third seasons look like they're getting dropped from Netflix UK as well.

After season one was removed from the streaming platform, New on Netflix UK is reporting that the other two runs will vanish on November 1.

Original story, October 6: Oh jeez Rick, it looks like Rick and Morty's first season is no longer available on Netflix UK.

The streaming giant has removed the entire first run of the series, we can sadly confirm, with only seasons two and three currently available.

So if you've yet to discover the show, we're afraid that you may have missed your chance, and disgruntled viewers have already taken to Twitter.

"YOU GUYS ARE STEALING RICK & MORTY FROM US!?!?!? WTF MAN!!!!" one unhappy viewer wrote, while another added: "If you remove Rick & Morty I'm cancelling my subscription, @NetflixUK. Prepare to be bombarded with complaints."

And we have more bad news, as it looks like at least the second season could be heading off Netflix soon too, as the service lists the show's availability only until November 1. Season three is marked as a Netflix Original, so it is unclear whether that will last beyond that date or not.

This is because of licensing agreements with Adult Swim, with the removal suggesting that the license has expired.

Either way, it seems that Rick and Morty won't be getting their squanch on in the UK much longer (for the time being at least).

Meanwhile, it looks like season four of the show is on the way, with co-creator Justin Roiland recently confirming that they had begun production on the 70 upcoming episodes.

Let's hope this gives Netflix an excuse to put previous seasons of Rick and Morty back on their website.
