A six-minute short film titled Samurai & Shogun aired unannounced on Adult Swim's Toonami programming block on March 29, 2020[f], during the hiatus of the fourth season of Rick and Morty, before being uploaded to Adult Swim's YouTube channel the following day. Written and directed by Kaichi Sato, and produced by Koji Iijima and Studio Deen and executive producer Maki Terashima-Furuta, the episode features a different animation and art style than usual, and is heavily themed around anime, specifically Lone Wolf & Cub. The short stars Yōhei Tadano as "Rick WTM-72" and Keisuke Chiba as "Shogun Morty", the pair reprising their roles from the Japanese dub of the animated series.[57][58] Another eight-minute short film titled Rick & Morty vs. Genocider aired unannounced on Toonami on July 26, 2020[g], debuting on YouTube slightly after. Written and directed by Takashi Sano, produced by Sola Entertainment, animated at Telecom Animation Film, and starring Tadano and Chiba as Rick and Morty, Manabu Muraji as Jerry, "AI Driver", and "Hologram Transvestite", and Yuki Minami as "Hologram Girl", the episode explores the conflict between President Morty and Rick C-137.[59][60][61] A third short film, titled Summer Meets God (Rick Meets Evil) and also written and directed by Takashi Sano, was released on YouTube on August 2, 2021 and aired on Adult Swim the following day. A fourth short film, titled The Great Yokai Battle of Akihabara, directed by Masaru Matsumoto and written by Naohiro Fukushima, was released on YouTube on October 10, 2021 and aired on Adult Swim the following day.

Webisodes[edit]

The Non-Canonical Adventures (2016–2021)[edit]

On October 26, 2016, Adult Swim began releasing a web series of claymation shorts, Rick and Morty: The Non-Canonical Adventures. Written and directed by Lee Hardcastle, the shorts follow Rick and Morty characters into parodies of scenes from various science-fiction and horror films. The title of each short is the same as that of the film the short is parodying,[66] and each episode ends with the Adult Swim logo [as] integrated in the scene. On November 1, 2019, Hardcastle released a video compiling all the shorts, while also releasing the last ten previously unreleased shorts.[67] Additional shorts were later released in 2021.

Bushworld Adventures (2018)[edit]

An eleven-minute episode titled "Bushworld Adventures" aired unannounced on Adult Swim on April 1, 2018, one year after the surprise premiere of the third season of Rick and Morty, as part of Adult Swim's annual April Fools' prank. Written, directed and produced by Australian animator and YouTube personality Michael Cusack, the episode features a different animation and art style than usual, and is heavily themed around Australian humor.[84]

Rick and Morty in the Eternal Nightmare Machine (2021)[edit]

Animatic animation[edit]

In August 2016, Adult Swim posted an "animatic"[86] scene entitled State of Georgia Vs. Denver Fenton Allen on YouTube.[87] This consisted of the voices of Rick and Morty reenacting[88] a transcript of a real-life court case of the same name. The visual animation consisted of only basic, black-and-white sketches. In October 2016, a fan-made fully-animated production version of the scene was released on YouTube,[89] with the title Judge Morty: State of Georgia Vs. Rick Allen. It was later blocked by Turner on copyright grounds, but reuploads exist elsewhere.[90][irrelevant citation]

Rick and Morty Season 5 Episodes Ranked Worst to Best

Rick and Morty has finally wrapped its fifth season, and while it's getting ready for the sixth season and beyond, now is the best time to look back on just how far the series has come over the course of this newest season. First making its debut earlier this Summer, Season 5 of the fan favorite Adult Swim animated series has been remarkably different from the others that had come before. Immediately throwing out much of the canonical status quo changes made in Season 4 in favor of shifting its focus, it was a wild journey. 

Season 5 of the series had some of the highest highs, but also some of the lowest lows in terms of how fans received some of the adventures. Eschewing its serialized storytelling for the first seven episodes in favor of more episodic and self-contained adventures, Season 5 took some wild swings. This became even more true with the final three episodes of the season that saw some of the biggest canon reveals and status quo changes in the series yet. 

To put it all into a single word, Rick and Morty Season 5 was uneven. It was hard to predict what would come with each episode, and sometimes it worked in the series' favor and sometimes it didn't. Read on for a breakdown of the season's highlights and lowlights (from worst to best), and let us know your favorite episodes in the comments! You can even reach out to me directly @Valdezology on Twitter with all of your thoughts about Rick and Morty's newest season. 

#10 - Rickdependence Spray

The choice for worst episode of the season probably won't be a surprise to anyone. There might be some who disagree on where "Rickdependence Spray" lands on their lists of respective favorite episodes of the season, but it's likely nowhere near the top for the majority of fans. Not only did it receive the most vocal negative feedback in the season overall, but this honestly might be the series' first real example of "going too far." While it does have the same central conceit as many of the series' better episodes of running with a single joke until its exaggerated outcome, the central joke here started out from such a grody place that the series could only go further with it in an attempt to top it. It went from being grossly curious to grossly unpleasant by the end of it all.

#9 - Rick & Morty's Thanksploitation Spectacular

Speaking of taking a single joke and running with it, that's the same core conceit of "Thanksploitation Spectacular" as well. It's a much more interesting joke as it takes the Thanksgiving holiday background to fuel an adventure focusing on the rivalry between Rick and the President, but the jokes don't always land in the escalation of them. The joke of the smart turkeys kind of feels one-note and almost hindered by the seasonal motif. Keith David gets to say so many wacky things as both versions of the President, but something about the final battle feels lacking.

The reveal of a species of Thanksgiving themed aliens lacks the same kind of punch we have seen in better episodes, and silently just enjoying dinner is an unique step for their relationship, but it's missing that oomph we got from better episodes exploring Rick and the President's rivalry in the past. It's fun, but lacking that one final thing to really make it stand out.

#8 - Mortyplicity

"Mortyplicity" serves as Season 5's version of the vignette collection episodes like "Interdimensional Cable," "Morty's Mind Blowers," and "Never Ricking Morty" of past seasons. It's an episode full of rapid fire jokes and ideas that launch at such a speedy pace that they never outstay their welcome. The exercise of seeing different kinds of stories and settings for the Smith family first kicks off with the mystery of who could be hunting them down, but soon explodes into the kind of madness you'd expect.

Unfortunately when stacked against many of the other episodes in the season, there is just nothing really to connect with. The novelty of the various types of Smith families and their deaths runs its course pretty quickly too. Better jokes than the episodes on the bottom of this list, but less to go on than what comes next. Also, the fact it comes second in the season after a great pilot doesn't help much either.

prevnext

#7 - Gotron Jerrysis Rickvangelion

"Gotron Jerrysis Rickvangelion" is another example of the series running with a single joke to an exaggerated conclusion, but unlike the other episodes ranking below this one at least involves Rick and the entire Smith family. It's one of the series' first real dives into anime (unlike the full anime shorts produced before), and while this leads to some tired references, it doesn't exactly frame the entire episode as expected. Instead there's a fun riff on mafia film characteristics and yet another exploration of the unique dynamic between Rick and Summer.

It gets a little more credit for being a surprising tie-in to "Rickdependence Spray" as well. At this point in the season, canon wasn't exactly the primary focus just yet. It manages to take the "giant incest baby" joke to a hilarious new level thanks to this extra bit of novelty, and wraps it all together in a way that feels appropriate for the anime flavors throughout. Those Voltron jokes do run their course early, but they still work more than some of the worse ones in the season.

#6 - Forgetting Sarick Mortshall

The penultimate episode of the season trimmed away most of the wilder one-shot jokes the other episodes had, and focused on the primary duo. This season had been markedly short on stories that focused primarily on Rick and Morty's changing dynamic, but had been dropping small hints that a rift was forming between the two of them. Thankfully the episode in which the two of them break up was satisfying to see in its own right. While the resulting rebound relationships weren't as satisfying as one might hope from such a big moment like their break up, they do serve the very important purpose of opening Rick's eyes to how toxic he and Morty are for one another.

It's better served when taking as part of the season finale as a whole (and when immediately following up from "Rickturnal Friendshine of the Spotless Mort," so that's why it's not ranked higher on this list. It's an important step when looking to the future of the series as a whole, however, because these character changes can stick around while everything else remains episodic and ever-changing.

#5 - Mort Dinner Rick Andre

The fifth season got off to an incredibly fun start. There were unfortunately no ties to Season 4's finale (and elements of that finale weren't tackled until much later in the season), so it does get knocked for that, but it's one of the stronger standalone episodes of the series as a whole. It's got everything you want from a solid Rick and Morty episode. It takes a science fiction premise to an exaggerated conclusion, there are smaller hints of canonical lore with the introduction of Rick's rival, a wacky new character with cede rival, Morty acts like a selfish teen with hilarious consequences, and there's something for nearly every character to do.

The only reason it doesn't quite make it higher into the top five is because the four upcoming episodes push a little harder into the actual character development. The premiere episode is unfortunately hindered by the fact it's a premiere at all. That's admittedly splitting hairs, but being the first episode means it couldn't quite deliver on all of the emotional stakes that later episodes would get their fill of. It does what it needs to get Season 5 started, but that's all it could really do.

#4 - Amortycan Grickfitti

"Amortycan Grickfitti" is full of wild one-shot jokes and ideas. The difference here from the other vignette filled episode, however, is what the series does best. Anchoring all of the Hellraiser, Transformers, Marvel and more parodies are the relationships between each character. This is one of the few times we get to see Rick explore a different point of view on Jerry, and like the episodes between them in the past, it's quite eye-opening and moves their dynamic forward in a new direction. The same can be said for Jerry's relationship with Beth, and that's not something we get a lot of in the season overall.

Morty and Summer also have a fun adventure on their own, and once again, it's a dynamic we don't get to really see elsewhere in the season either. It's probably the season's best example of using all of the characters while keeping that balance of character growth, wacky ideas, and outlandish science-fiction fantasy premises the series is known for. The jokes aren't admittedly as strong as some of the others this season, but it gets so much else right.

#3 - Rickmurai Jack

Just as how the season came to a great start, it had a great end as well. The Season 5 finale satisfied in a number of ways as it finally delivered on some of the reveals fans have been waiting a long time for. It's one of the strongest episodes of the season, easily, and deserves a spot in the top list of episodes overall for what it accomplishes. It doesn't quite reach the summit, however, because of just how much of those reveals it crams into its second half. It's a finale that capitalizes on the build up of seasons before, but that also means it suffers the same problem most season finales have.

It doesn't quite stack up as an episode by itself (especially when you have to combine with the first half, "Sarick Mortshall" for the full experience) and those reveals come at high speeds back-to-back without much room to really absorb it all on first watch. It's a great episode to analyze, and makes the top three, but not quite all the way there.

prevnext

#2 - A Rickconvenient Mort

The series really dug its heels into the emotional growth of the duo early on in the season's run. "A Rickconvient Mort" takes the wild idea of Morty dating a Captain Planet parody and makes it one of the most compelling episodes in the entire series overall. It emotionally challenged Morty in a way he had never been before, and explored what his first real dating and relationship experiences were like.

It was Morty's first true romance of the series, and while it didn't end quite well (in an explosive fashion fitting for this series), Rick and Morty didn't undercut all of that emotional growth with a joke. It's a truly "grown up" episode of the series. It's even wilder when you consider all Morty did to make it happen, and the apocalyptic debauchery B plot for Rick and Summer in the same episode. There are still plenty of fun to be had, but it's the quieter and more grounded moments here that really make this one stand out and stick the landing.

#1 - Rickturnal Friendshine of the Spotless Mort

0comments

"Rickturnal Friendshine of the Spotless Mort" marked a majorly unexpected turning point for Season 5. Not only was it the last episode before a several week hiatus, but it was the first episode in the season that had tackled any of the serialized canon from the seasons prior (unless you count the brief Space Beth shout out in the second episode). Picking up from the events of the Season 4 finale at last, this one saw Rick dive into Birdperson's memories.

This not only revealed more about their past together, but weaved these new revelations with a highly fun science fiction premise and some kooky visuals. Not only that, but these revelations then pushed Rick's character in a new direction too. There's a lot of forward momentum here not seen in the rest of the season, and that's even including the final two. It takes the top spot of the season overall because it's not only a hilarious episode, but the pace of that comedy, lore, and emotion finds a balance that's truly unmatched by the rest of the season. And honestly, unmatched by many of the series' best episodes overall.

Rick and Morty Season 5 Episodes Ranked: Birdperson to Killer Turkeys

Posted on by Ray Flook

|

We're now just hours away from the eagerly-anticipated two-episode, one-hour Season 5 finale ("Forgetting Sarick Mortshall" & "Rickmurai Jack") of Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland's Rick and Morty. Which also means viewers are only hours away from seeing if their predictions were right (we're still hoping for the "Space Beth option) and start looking ahead to the season. But before all of that, we're looking back at our reviews of the previous eight episodes to rank them in preference, with some close calls between some episodes (though in the interest of full disclosure, S05E06 "Rick & Morty's Thanksploitation Spectacular" had no legit challengers for the basement spot). So here's a look at how the eight stack up, along with excerpts from our reviews making the case for each one.

rick and morty

(1) S05E08 "Rickternal Friendshine of the Spotless Mort": Previously, we wrote about how Harmon and Roiland's Season 5 Episode 7 "Gotron Jerrysis Rickvangelion" was a game-changer for the series where the series shifted to a much stronger emphasis on storylines and their implications. And though it's been treated like it was that other c-word for most of its run, the Adult Swim series appears to have stopped worrying and learned to love "canon." We wrapped it up by wondering how the series would handle evolving from telling stories to being a storyteller. Well, thanks to director Erica Hayes and writer Albro Lundy's "Rickternal Friendshine of the Spotless Mort" with a pleasantly surprising episode that not only went all-in canon-building but also presented us with the most romantic episode of the series. Yup. Romantic.

(2) S05E03 "A Rickconvenient Mort": The creative team isn't riding the show's success by shoveling the same old, same old for nine seasons before attempting something groundbreaking. "Groundbreaking" is a dragon this show's been slaying since the first episode… Queen! That's a perfect segue into my thoughts on "A Rickconvenient Mort" (directed by Juan Meza-Léon and written by Rob Schrab), which takes the crown for the top episode this season so far. How can you not be impressed by an episode that can make your heart break for Morty and Planet Earth yet also feel hopeful for the new family dynamic that's been in play since S05E01? But most of all, the episode put viewers in the much-needed position of having to feel for characters we thought we knew and forcing us to stay in those moments. No punchlines. No sight gags. Just the raw emotion of being there for those moments we don't often get to see between planets blowing up and gods being killed.

(3) S05E05 "Amortycan Grickfitti": Directed by Kyounghee Lim and written by Anne Lane, this week's episode of Rick and Morty continues Harmon and Roiland's Adult Swim series' tradition of twisting the knife in the kidneys of various films genres and well-trodden cliches. This time around, it's a take on some of your favorite (and maybe not so favorite) teen rom-com/coming-of-age films- and even a side of "pain/pleasure conundrum" to address the basic problem with Hellraiser and similar-themed film franchises. But what made this episode work was the way it took two distinctly different storylines and wove them into an overall message about fitting in and how "being cool" is in the eye of the beholder- and a very, very fleeting thing.

(4) S05E02 "Mortyplicity": Directed by Lucas Gray and written by Lundy, "Mortyplicity" not only served as a sequel or a postscript of sorts to the fourth season finale but also served as a brain-bleeding glimpse (in a good way) of where Rick's at is early on in the fifth season. Right off the bat, if thought the episode was a testament to both the importance of establishing an identity and the ultimate futility in that effort, then props because we definitely see that. If you saw the episode as an exercise in the overall artistic process, with the in-space family (with Space Beth in tow) serving as the artist and the battling decoys representing the creative conflict that brings about true art? You won't get an argument here because we see that, too. But the reason we see this as a sequel or postscript of sorts is that it tells us where Rick's mindset is with the one thing in the universe he's been running from- a family.

(5) S05E01 "Mort Dinner Rick Andre": Overall, writer Jeff Loveness and director Jacob Hair crafted an excellent "return" episode that not only reminded the viewers of how things left off but also offered a "slice of life" to give us a better sense of how things have progressed. While still adventuring with Rick, Morty is growing into being his own man just as willing to push back on Rick as he is to willingly join him on the next adventure. With Dr. Wong still a very important factor in the family's life, Beth has gone from needing her dad's approval, and Jerry's gone from just living to despise Rick to being a couple that appears to be interested in working on themselves.

And then there's Rick, not exactly a "change agent" when it comes to things of a more personal nature- but then again, it's hard to learn from the past when you're someone who continues running from it. So Morty wants his own life, and Beth and Jerry are off doing couples stuff? No worries, Rick will just groom Summer to be his new "sidekick"- not because that's what's best for her but because he needs someone and Summer seems to be back to her "impress Grandpa" stage (in fact, both Morty and Summer seem to have warmed back up somewhat to Rick since the season finale). While we know this is going to lead to more family/group adventures this season, it will be interesting to see how the shifting dynamics impact them individually and as a unit (and let's not forget Space Beth).

(6) S05E07 "Gotron Jerrysis Rickvangelion": Up until now, the Adult Swim series has offered us 4-1/2 seasons of theme, meaning, and satire with the loose trappings of canon to keep it all together. But the canon was never the focus; in fact, the idea of canon and a "mythology" has been mocked in the past. But with Harmon and Roiland having inked that sweet long-term deal, the creative team has been working further ahead than it ever has (with Harmon stating recently that there's already been work on the seventh season). So working that far ahead, the series will need to lean on long-term storylines and canon-building more because it's tough to stay thematically current when you're working months or more in advance.

And that brings me to the Hair-directed, John Harris-written "Gotron Jerrysis Rickvangelion" and why I was having an issue processing it. For me, this episode represents crossing over a line in which I now have to give much more weight to the storylines themselves and their implications. Basically, what I'm saying is that Incest Baby matters now. As does the growing divide between Rick and Morty, the escalating tension between Summer and Jerry, Jerry and Beth working on their marriage, and wondering what Space Beth is up to. It will be interesting to see how the series evolves from telling stories to being a storyteller.

(7) S05E04 "Rickdependence Spray": Only three episodes in on the fifth season of Harmon and Roiland's Rick and Morty, and the Adult Swim series has already covered thematic stomping grounds like environment & climate change, one's sense of self & personal identity, and… Beth and Jerry developing a pretty decent sex life? And it was sex that was the focus of this week's episode "Rickdependence Spray," directed by Hayes and written by Nick Rutherford– a ten-ton, in-your-face, twisted "Afterschool Special" tour de force that didn't hide which hills it was planting its "sex flags" on.

(8) S05E06 "Rick & Morty's Thanksploitation Spectacular": With the Douglas Olsen-directed and James Siciliano-written sixth episode "Rick & Morty's Thanksploitation Spectacular" kicking off the season's second half, Rick and Morty Season 5 took a step backward with an episode filled with retreaded themes in desperate need of a better storyline.

Here's another look at the extended trailer for this weekend's finale. In the following clip, the season-long tension between the dimension-hopping duo appears to have reached a boiling point. Morty dares Rick to replace him, with Rick apparently more than willing to oblige. Thus, the crows. But what would Rick really be like without Morty, and could the universe survive? Here's a look at "Forgetting Sarick Mortshall" & "Rickmurai Jack":

Rick and Morty (season 5)

Fifth season of television series

Season of television series

The fifth season of the animated television series Rick and Morty consisted of 10 episodes, part of the 70 episodes ordered by Adult Swim after they renewed the series in 2018.[1] The series stars Justin Roiland as both titular characters. The season premiered on June 20, 2021 and concluded on September 5, 2021.[2][3]

Production[edit]

Development[edit]

Dan Harmon and Scott Marder said that season 5 would have a stronger sense of continuity than previous seasons. At a 2020 virtual Adult Swim festival, writer Scott Marder announced that "there's epic canon in season five coming" and that season four's Space Beth is set to be a major character in the season.[17] As of late October 2020, episodes were "pretty far along on [their] route to Adult Swim."[18] A promotional animatic of Morty carrying a seemingly dead Rick across an alien planet was released in November 2020.[6] Other animatics, including one that appears to be from the same episode as Rick is in the same condition he is in in the first picture, have been released as well.[18] A final animatic shows Morty confessing his feelings for Jessica as their spaceship crashes into the ocean. Once it does, Rick's long-time nemesis Mr. Nimbus greets them.[19] Sixth and seventh seasons have been confirmed to already be in development.

Writing[edit]

In October 2020, show creator Dan Harmon revealed that one of the episodes written by Rob Schrab in the upcoming season, now known as "A Rickconvenient Mort", would be about Morty's relationship with a woman who is not Jessica, and said that Morty "really feels heartache on a level a man his age shouldn't... my Emmy is going to that one." Schrab's writing for the episode was "very tender." Harmon also noted that production was happening ahead of schedule.[20]Jeff Loveness, who wrote multiple episodes in season four, has been confirmed to be returning to write his last episodes for the series, including the season premiere.[21] The season will also delve deeper into Rick and Jerry's relationship.[22]

Casting[edit]

Regulars Justin Roiland, Chris Parnell, Spencer Grammer, and Sarah Chalke were confirmed to return as the Smith family,[4] with other characters including new addition to the cast, Mr. Nimbus.[6] In January 2021, it was revealed that series creator Dan Harmon and Kari Wahlgren, a recurring voice in the series, would return to reprise their roles of Birdperson, Rick's old friend turned enemy after being reprogrammed by Tammy Gueterman, and Jessica, Morty's crush throughout the show, respectively.[5] Space Beth, a character who last appeared in the finale of the previous season, voiced by Chalke, also returned.[17] Guest stars during the season will include Timothy Olyphant, Christina Ricci, and Alison Brie.[23]

Release[edit]

The season premiered on June 20, 2021.[24]Justin Roiland, who voices the two main characters, said that he would like to air one episode a month, so as to lengthen the time that the show is on the air.[25] He reiterated this in March 2021. Roiland also claimed that the wait between all the rest of the seasons would "never be [as] long again" as they were between many of the previous seasons.[26] On July 13, 2021, the seventh episode, "Gotron Jerrysis Rickvangelion", was released online in Canada through Amazon Prime Video, ahead of its official release date of August 1.[13] "Forgetting Sarick Mortshall" had its intro, involving cookie terrorists, heavily edited for broadcast. This includes the words "Cookie ISIS" being replaced with "Cookie Freedom" on a checklist on Morty's phone, visual changes [the cookie terrorists' flag having altered symbols and a prisoner cookie with a bag over its head removed and replaced with the cookie president], and dialogue changes [Morty no longer mentioning that Rick doesn't usually have "transition plans," removal of a brief monologue from a terrorist villain, and changing the accent of said villain's new, singular line]. Streaming services kept the original intro intact upon release, only to swap it for the edited broadcast version shortly after.

Reception[edit]

On the review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, season five has a 95% score based on 22 reviews.[27] Brandon Katz of Observer said "Rick and Morty persists not only for its inversion of sci-fi tropes, clever pop culture riffing and raw hilarity. It continues to hold our interest in a way few shows do because it knows we are all capable of great and terrible things."[28] David Opie of Digital Spy praised the series premiere, saying "It's just as inventive as ever, and by not resetting the status quo, there's more room for character development."[29]

Rick and Morty Season 5 Episode 10 Finale Evil Morty TOP 10 Breakdown, Easter Eggs, Ending Explained

Rick and Morty season 5, episode 9 release date – and when to expect it on Netflix

After a season of mostly self-contained one-offs, Rick and Morty finally explored some of its messy continuity in episode eight – and it was one of the show’s best episodes this year.

Titled ‘Rickternal Friendshine of the Spotless Mort’, the episode saw the return of recurring fan-favourite Birdperson, after Rick travelled into his mind along with a younger version of himself.

As well as the usual mind-bending Rick and Morty madness, the episode also saw some surprising character work for Rick as he grapples with a rare attempt at friendship – and also revealed a worrying fact about Beth…

This, of course, is all good setup for the final two episodes – which will be airing back-to-back as a two-part finale.

The hour-long instalment will be the first time Rick and Morty has attempted an extended two-parter, suggesting big things are to come from the finale – though it seems we’ll be left in suspense as there will be a brief hiatus before episodes nine and ten.

So here’s everything you need to know about *burp* season five, Morty, including the release schedule and how to watch the show in the UK.

How can I watch Rick and Morty season 5 in the UK?

Good news Rick and Morty fans, the duo returned to UK screens this summer back at their rightful home at E4. UK fans will be able to watch their antics a day after the US showing so there is no big gap between broadcasts.

The next episode of season five airs in the US on 5th September – and there’s no need for a portal gun as UK fans can watch the episode on Monday, September 6th on E4.

The finale is an hour-long two-parter made up of the episodes ‘Forgetting Sarick Mortshall’ and ‘Rickmurai Jack’, with the two instalments expected to air back-to-back. Episodes will be available on-demand via All 4 after transmission.

What time is Rick and Morty season 5 airing on E4 in the UK?

Rick and Morty season five episode nine and ten airs on Adult Swim in the United States on Sunday, September 5th at 11pm ET. As there’s no gap E4 is expected to air the same two episodes at 10pm BST on Monday, September 6th.

Previous season 5 episodes aired weekly, and were traditionally broadcast on the same timeslot of Mondays at 10pm BST on E4.

Rick and Morty season 5, episode 9 release date

We now have all 10 episode titles and the UK airdates:

Episodes nine and ten are airing together as a two-part finale, despite the episodes confusingly having rather different names.

However there will be a bit of a wait for the grand finale – perhaps to build up anticipation, the final two episodes will be broadcast after the series has had nearly a month-long hiatus. We’re expecting big things in that case…

Rick and Morty season 5 plot

The unpredictable and non-linear nature of Rick and Morty means that it’s hard to predict what will happen next.

At the 2020 virtual Adult Swim festival the writers teased that there would be more continuity in season five – which we’ve already seen with Keith David’s President popping up several times as Rick’s recurring frenemy as well as an entire episode dedicated to the return of Birdperson.

With the season ending with a two-part finale for the first time, fan anticipation is high than an entire hour of Rick and Morty could finally address some of the show’s long-standing questions regarding continuity and develop some of the dangling plot threads such as Evil Morty and Space Beth.

Other than the episode titles, the only information we have on the final two episodes is a brief teaser – which seems to hint that Morty will be replaced by two crows of all things. Could we be exploring who Rick would be without Morty?

We’re still yet to find out what happened to Evil Morty and what he did to the Citadel under his leadership so hopefully he’ll make an appearance this season too.

Rick and Morty season 5 cast

Justin Roiland will of course return to voice half the cast, including titular characters Rick and Morty, alongside Sarah Chalke (Scrubs) as Rick’s long-suffering daughter Beth, with Chris Parnell as her passive husband Jerry.

Kelsey Grammer’s daughter Spencer Grammer completes the family as Morty’s sister Summer.

After season four’s host of famous guest stars, including Paul Giamatti, Keegan-Michael Key, Matthew Broderick, Justin Theroux and even Elon Musk, season five is bound to feature a similarly star-studded cast – and RadioTimes.com exclusively revealed three big upcoming guest stars.

Former ’90s child star Christina Ricci (Casper), Timothy Olyphant (Deadwood) and Alison Brie (GLOW) were announced to appear in undisclosed roles. This marks a Community reunion for Brie and Rick and Morty co-creator Dan Harmon, following previous guest appearances by other stars of the college sitcom including Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs and Jim Rash.

It was later revealed that Brie would voice Captain Planet parody Planetina in episode three ‘A Rickconvenient Mort’, which would also feature Jennifer Coolidge (American Pie), Steve Buscemi (Fargo) and Fred Stoller (Everybody Loves Raymond). Ricci would then appear in the following episode ‘Rickdependence Spray’ as underground-dwelling horse-person Princess Ponietta, while Timothy Olyphant starred as marine-turned-turkey Coop in episode seven.

Keith David and his iconic voice have popped up in a few season five episodes already as The President, while legendary actress Susan Sarandon is also set to return as family therapist Dr Wong from the Pickle Rick episode.

Accomplished voice actors Nolan North and Troy Baker have also both appeared this season, with the two best known as the leads of videogame franchises Uncharted and The Last of Us respectively.

Co-creator Dan Harmon has also joined Roiland in the voice booth as both Mr Nimbus and Birdperson, while Tom Kenny and Cassie Steele have returned as recurring characters Squanchy and Tammy respectively.

However, the long-rumoured Kanye West appearance will not be taking place in season five, despite his public appeal to be in the show and the creators even offering the rapper his own episode.

Rick and Morty season 5 trailer

Adult Swim has released a few trailers for season five now, and they’re as bonkers and brilliant as you’d expect. The latest seems to highlight the season’s renewed focus on family – in Rick and Morty’s unique way of course:

Will there be a Rick and Morty movie?

With network Adult Swim commissioning a whopping 70 episodes back in 2018, Rick and Morty fans have a lot of offbeat intergalactic adventures to look forward to.

However, it looks like the dysfunctional duo’s most exciting trip yet could be to the big screen, with producer Scott Marder teasing that a film of the subversive series is quite likely.

“It’d be daunting, I wouldn’t be shocked if there was one that comes down the pipe one day,” Marder told Metro.”I feel like every episode is a movie. I’d like to see what a movie would be, I feel like we pack so much in.”

“I think it will happen,” Marder added. “I do think it will happen.”

Summer actress Spencer Grammer also weighed in, noting that the subversive series was unlikely to go for a conventional theatrical release.

“It’d have to be something so big – like a 3D interactive movie that also has a theme park. I don’t know if you could just do a straight movie,” Grammer said. ‘There are those 4D movie theatres in New York City.”

How to watch Rick and Morty seasons 1-4

Seasons one to three of Rick and Morty are available to watch on Netflix, and also air in the evenings on E4. Season four aired exclusively on E4 at 10pm on Wednesdays with the new episodes then made available to stream on All4. It then joined the earlier episodes on Netflix, arriving on the streaming platform on Tuesday 16th June.

And if you want to get another fix of the time-travelling pair, a new short recently debuted – inspired by anime but otherwise very much showcasing the Rick and Morty than we’ve come to know over the last four seasons.

Now discussing:

I tried to capture in my memory the moment when his penis entered Irina's pussy, her look is full of alarm, tenderness and gratitude or something, the scream of his wife. With which the PM member froze in her pussy, plunging into her to its full length. So passionate, like our intercourse with Katyusha.
