Seasoned with acid, dark humor & cringe is back sometime soon, in this article, we’re going to inform the reader what this is all about.
Fans of the adult animated sci-fi sitcom by Justin Roiland & Dan Harmond, “Rick and Morty,” can be happy. For Adult Swim –Cartoon Network’s late-nite program block– is likely to announce the update of season 5 sometime soon. This sitcom show has been off the air since last decade –2019 sounds so long ago after the COVID–19 panic-struck–, meaning that fans had to wait quite some time for Rick and Morty to return albeit with shorter season length.
Rick and Morty Season 4 Part 2
At the time the fourth season got renewed, Justin Roiland & Dan Harmon told the media that they always had plans to release more quickly the show. But network management being the convoluted web of entanglements it is, things fell behind, putting stress into show producers.
Rick and Morty are one of Adult Swim’s most successful shows out there. With the third season hitting record ratings, giving the comedy by Roiland & Harmon the prized title of the #1 comedy show in 2017 within the millennial segment of viewers. Also, the show is a multi-platform hit sensation: People watch it on their smartphones, tablets, PC’s, Laptops. It’s common to see the daily commuter laugh at their smartphone while they stream this series. And the hype doesn’t just stay at that point, for there’s a myriad of retail merchandise to pump up the Rick and Morty fever.
Indeed, the hiatus between the third & fourth season created anxiety levels for the fans of this intergalactic comedy. Said pause places a significant amount of pressure on the showrunners who are complying with popular demands.
Season 5 of Rick and Morty scriptwriting got completed as season four ran live –July 2019–. And experts in the entertainment world pinned the update for April 2020, and missed on that date, because it’s almost May. On April 1, Adult Swim released a trailer titled “The Other Five.” A title in open reference for the missing episodes from the lengthy mid-season breaks the show took in December 2019 with a confirmed update of May 3, 2020.

There’s the expectation about this because the fourth season got packed with many characters and a significant number of plots. There are many reasons for the delay in the release of the series, as fans are aware, Rick and Morty is an animated series, and the creative process for this production is complicated. The COVID–19 pandemic slows everything down because the creators have to adhere to social distancing.
Rick and Morty Season 5 update
When it comes to the season 5 update, it’s entirely up to the Adult Swim management to inform. We can’t speculate because despite what Roiland & Harmon claim –that it’s going to take less time for show releases–. Rick and Morty suffer from chronic delays since the creation of the show.
Adult Swim renewed the show for an impressive number of seventy episodes –an unprecedented event–. A simple math calculation ensues: If the creators say that each season has ten chapters, we can assume that there will be –at the very least–, seven more seasons of Rick and Morty antics & laughter.
