Created by Justin Rolland and Dan Harmon, Ricky and Morty is an American adult animated science fiction sitcom. Its created for Cartoon Network’s late-night programming block named Adult Swim.
The series follows the crazy scientist Rick Sanchez and his misadventures. Rick has a good-hearted but fretful grandson Morty Smith. They utilize their time wisely between interdimensional adventures and domestic life.
The fourth season premiered on 10th November, 2019. The third and the fourth season lasted more than two years. To the much delight of its fans, the fifth season has already been renewed. Much before its expected schedule, the fifth season was confirmed in July 2020. We are expecting a legitimate trailer before the end of 2020.
Mid-summer is the most popular time for season premieres for Rick and Morty. Season 2 premiered with “A Rickle in Time” on 26th July, 2015. Two years later, Season 3 premiered with “The Rickshank Rickdemption” on 30th July, 2017. But the season 4 premiered in November which makes it difficult to predict the release date of the fifth season. However, we can expect Season 5 to premiere by early-to-mid 2021.
What To Expect In Season 5?
In the Global Celebration Panel of Adult Swim’s virtual 2020 Festival, the producer/writer Scott Marder and creator Dan Harmon talked about the upcoming episodes. They said the episodes would be less self-contained affairs and similar to season three would be more of a continuing narrative.
A “First Look” animatic, not exactly a trailer, was released during this festival. The clip started with a scene where Morty carried a mortally wounded Rick by some kind of asteroid.
An element Space Beth was introduced in the fourth season. So, we would be seeing a lot more of it in Season 5.
Space Beth might be the central narrative in Season 5 since Harmon recently stated, “She’s Schrodinger’s Beth right now. The fact she may or may not be clone is the important thing.”
Marder teased, “There are epic canon in season five coming. Fans are gonna like get knocked over by the canon we’re about to hit them with…All the stuff we’re doing is so awesome.”
All this is surely making the fans eagerly wait for the Season 5 to premiere.
