Is the Rick and Morty Season 5 Release Date here or not?
Rick and Morty is the popular Adult Swim show that will have you pondering over deep thoughts while also making you laugh hysterically over its wittiness. The show’s fourth season just ended. Now, let’s see how much more do we have to wait for Rick and Morty season 5. Is there any news on the release date? The episodes? The cast!? Well, we might have a few answers for you.
We know another season of Rick and Morty is happening, we just don’t know exactly when
As we all know, and by we I mean all Rick and Morty fans, the show was renewed for 70 episodes. That means a season 5 is already confirmed by Adult Swim. So, we can expect Rick Sanchez and Morty Smith to go on insane adventures once again. It’s just that we don’t know when exactly we’ll see anything about Rick and Morty season 5. There have been no teasers and trailers. And there weren’t any major cliffhangers in the season 4 finale either. Except for the fact that there are two known Beth Smiths now. And no one knows who the real Beth is and who the clone is.
Though, we can guess when Rick and Morty season 5 release date is going to come
By judging the dates of the previous seasons, we can make an estimate on when the new season of the animated show will come out. Usually, the show isn’t all released at once. The episodes of each season of Rick and Morty were released on a per week basis. Season 4’s first episode released on 10th November 2019. And the last episode of Rick and Morty season 4 came to us on 31st May 2020.
It must be noted that after Rick and Morty season 3 ended, we had to wait 2 years for the season 4 to arrive on Adult Swim. There was also a two-year gap from season 2 to season 3. We might be looking another two years worth of wait to get the Rick and Morty season 5 release date. That means 2022 or 2023, right?
It could take a bit longer due to the pandemic
The good thing is that the creators, Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland, are already working on season 5’s script! I guess that’s quarantine working in our favor! Hence, as far as the script goes, Rick and Morty season 5 is right on schedule. But what about the production of the show? The coronav*rus pandemic has still not stopped. And America is the country with the most cases. That is affecting the productions of TV shows and movies in Hollywood already. So, Rick and Morty may be delayed a bit more too.
So, we could be waiting for three or even four years! But thankfully, there are some clever ways people are still getting shows and movies made. There was one movie made in quarantine and the actors didn’t even meet one another! They did it in their own homes.
This is wishful thinking, but perhaps the cast and producers of Rick and Morty could work out a way in making the show while staying in their homes? Who knows! A girl can dream.
The cast of Rick and Morty season 5 will probably remain the same
We could be looking at some new guest stars to come to enter the beloved universe of Rick and Morty. In season 4, we got to hear the legendary director Taika Waititi, comedian Keegan Michael-Key, actor Matthew Broderick, entrepreneur Elon Musk, Westworld’s Jeffrey Wright, and Justin Theroux. There might be big names in Rick and Morty season 5 as well!
The original voice cast would remain the same consisting of Justin Roiland (Rick and Morty), Sarah Chalke (Beth Smith), Spencer Grammer (Summer Smith), and Chris Parnell (Jerry Smith).
