Ooo-wee! Adult Swim announced Rick and Morty season 5 will premiere June 20 this year, and there’s a new trailer to accompany the news, Entertainment Weekly reports.
If you haven’t watched Rick and Morty, first of all, where have you been? The animated comedy series began in 2013, as it follows sociopathic genius scientist Rick Sanchez (voiced by the show’s co-creator Justin Roiland), who drags his timid grandson Morty (also voiced by Roiland) on insanely sketchy adventures across the universe. Rick lives with his daughter Beth’s family and constantly involves her, his son-in-law Jerry, grand-daughter Summer, and Morty into intergalactic escapades.
Season 4 ended last May and two months later, the show posted a first look at the next installment, the outlet reports. It came after cast members and co-creator Dan Harmon streamed a virtual non-Comic-Con panel on Twitch.
At the time, Harmon said the team was working remotely on new episodes amid the pandemic via Zoom. He added that they have already finished with season 5 episodes and were moving on to writing season 6, broh!
Rick and Morty season 5 will debut Sunday, June 20, at 11 p.m.
