The popular Adult Swim animated series is celebrating Sunday 20th June with Rick and Morty Season 5. Not every show gets lucky to get an opening on a holiday. But for fans, it is a Rick and Morty Day and ironically Father’s Day too. In other words, the makers want to treat their fans with a day packed with BTS (behind the scenes) extras, peek-a-boo, and exclusive surprises. All this is open exclusively on Adult Swim’s channel, Swim’s digital platforms, and social platforms.
June 20 will be celebrated as a global holiday with makers making all possible arrangements to devote an entire Sunday to only Rick and Morty, the Dan Harmon, and Justin Roiland’s mega-hit.
Rick and Morty Season 4 was released in 2020 and it feels much better than the 2-year wait between seasons 3 and 4. The finale for season 4 was titled ‘Star Mort Rick Turn of the Jerri’. Now that Rick and Morty Season 5 is right around the summery corner, where can you watch the new episodes of Rick and Morty?
The series airs on Adult Swim in the US and on Channel E4 in the UK. Seasons 1 to 4 is available on Netflix for a good binge-watch. While Season 4 did not meet with the level of hype Rick and Morty usually gather, there’s still much to be seen. The series has been renewed for 70 more episodes, meaning that there are at least 5 more seasons on the way. The timeline is, however, a matter of gradual disclosure.
