Rick and Morty is an English cartoon show that was first premiered on the Adult Swim network on 2nd December 2013. The drama revolves around the misfortunes of sarcastic scientist Rick Sanchez and his benevolent but irritating grandson Morty Smith who divide their schedule between household life and thrilling outings.
This story has appealed to the viewers and because of this, the drama has secured fabulous 9.2/10 stars on the IMDb. Till now four seasons consisting of 41 episodes have released. The final episode of the fourth season was premiered on 31st May 2020. Now, more than seven months have passed since season 4 was launched and fans are enthusiastically waiting for next season.
They are super excited to know Rick and Monty’s Season 5 release date. So, to provide them, latest updates here is what we have found –
Has Adult Swim Disclosed Rick And Morty Season 5 Release Date?
You might have observed that there were more than two years of gap between the release dates of the third season and the fourth season, but it’s looking that this time we won’t have to wait for the same duration to watch season 5. Especially after Adult Swim Fest that happened in November 2020, we are following the production of the drama since then.
While conversating in a PaleyFest NY in October 2020, Dan Harmon mentioned that the potential of the group has multiplied in the course of the COVID-19 pandemic. Harmon also stated earlier in June 2020 in a discussion with The Wrap that the group had started putting efforts into the making of season 5 when the COVID-19 pandemic struck the United States in March 2020.
So, if we consider his remarks we can quite closely anticipate Rick And Morty Season 5 release date. The director Erica Hayes has disclosed to the Inverse that it takes up to 9 months to complete any show or drama. The duration can differ on the basis of difficult animation but on average, a show or movie requires this much time to finish entirely.
If you remember season 4 was renewed in May 2019 and later it was announced to release on 10th November. So if something like that happens with season 5 then the drama will take almost 5 months gap from its renewal to launch date. After considering these parameters we are hoping that season 5 can arrive by the mid of 2021.
How Will Rick And Morty Season 5 Plot Be?
The incalculable and illogical behavior of Rick and Morty somewhere makes it difficult for us to anticipate the plot of next season. We are expecting that the ‘Interdimensionable Cable’ pattern will make a comeback in the upcoming season. In the previous season, it was put in the place of a disputable Never Ricking Morty meta episode.
We don’t know what exactly occurred to evil Morty and also what kind of incident occurred with Citadel under his management. So, we are expecting that he will be back in the upcoming season.
How To Watch Rick And Morty Previous Seasons?
If you just made up your mind to watch the previous season’s episodes of the drama, then let me tell you that you can watch seasons 1-3 on Netflix and they also stream on evenings on E4. So, you can visit these platforms to watch the show.
Who Will Be Part Of Rick And Morty Season 5 Cast?
The showrunners haven’t disclosed any details regarding the cast of the upcoming season. That’s why we can’t provide you exact details about it. However, the reports of trusted sources like Inverse suggest that lead stars will return in the forthcoming season, creators won’t make any changes in them. But, they can add some new stars.
So, there are possibilities of the change in the cast but the good thing is that we will get a chance to watch our previous season’s actors in the coming Ricky and Morty Season 5 episodes. They will definitely reprise their roles. Justin Roiland will provide voices to the characters, Rick and Morty. Sarah Chalke will be seen as Beth who is the daughter of Beth and Chris Parnell will play the role of her hubby Jerry.
Spencer Grammer will portray the character of Morty’s sister Summer. In the fourth season, we have seen popular guest appearances like Paul Giamatti, Keegan-Michael Key, Matthew Broderick, Justin Theroux, and also Elon Musk and now season 5 is all set to include similar popular faces.
