It is a common belief that cartoons are meant for kids and anything animated goes straight to the kid’s category. Well lately, the belief has considerably changed considering the animated shows for adults or mature audiences that have come up in recent years. Rick and Morty Season 5 is a must watch.

There have not been many shows that have managed to garner huge attention for their entertainment purpose but there is this one show called Rick and Morty that has proved everyone wrong with its concept, story, themes, characters, and presentation. Since the time of its release, the show has been grabbing eyeballs and already has a vast fan base across the world.

The plot

Rick and Morty – Adult Swim’s Dark Fairy Tale

There’s no second thought that this series has an unprecedented and conspicuous storyline and otherworldly elements. The sitcom chronicles the escapades of Rick Sanchez (voiced by Justin Roiland), who’s a sarcastic mad scientist, and his decent but worrisome grandson Morty Smith (again voiced by Justin Roiland), juggle between household life and interdimensional quests. 

The Smith family, which includes Jerry (voiced by Chris Parnell) and Beth (voiced by Sarah Chalke), their kids Summer (voiced by Spencer Grammer), and Morty. Beth’s father, Rick Sanchez, who lives with them as a guest in Seattle, Washington, becomes a part of the adventures.

Rick and Morty go through various dimensions, planets, and realities and conduct their adventures through specified portals and the flying car of Rick. Rick is an alcoholic and practically annoying, whose various inventions and experiments are the driving force behind the events in the show. Summer occasionally joins them. Jerry detests Rick and his bad influence on his son which further leads to marital rifts with his wife Beth, who is a horse cardiac surgeon.

The series features several more side characters and villains in various seasons throughout the episodes. The show displays the same set of characters in different dimensions with a different set of characteristics. That’s why they often face challenges and navigate through the challenges presented by them.

Since the announcement of its production in July 2019, Rick and Morty’s Season 5 plot has been a matter of curiosity and discussion. Season 4 left a few loose ends and we all are trying to build our speculations upon that. The makers have already hinted at a more epic season, taking things for Rick and Morty a notch higher with better and immersive animation this time.

There are sure to be more family shenanigans and crazier adventures with several subplots and characters making a comeback for something bigger. The ‘Evil Morty’ storyline can do a peek-a-boo along with the interdimensional cable format. Space Beth can be up to something and the relationship between Jerry and Rick can be further explored too.

As for Rick and Morty’s Season 5 cast, most of the main voice actors would be getting their hands full again with all the main characters returning. It’s too early to predict the exact storyline but we have good assumptions at hand, for now.

The Release date of Rick and Morty Season 5

The show ‘Rick and Morty’ has a history of throwing long gaps in between its consecutive seasons and torturing its viewers. The difference between Rick and Morty Season 3 and Rick and Morty Season 4 were two painstaking years. This time around, they’ve granted mercy on the viewers and kept the difference between Season 4 and Rick and Morty Season 5 only around a year.

Though there isn’t a lot of information about the release date of Rick and Morty Season 5, the latest trailer dropped in March and May 2021 suggested a 20 June 2021 release. The USA people would be able to enjoy season 5 from June 20 on Adult Swim at 11 p.m. Earlier, the makers had announced a 70-episode sequence which probably included Season 4 too.

So the good news for the future is that there’s a possibility that there might be up to 10 seasons, that too to be released in close succession. It’s such a relief to know that we wouldn’t have to wait for a long time before we get to see another season of the show. Season 5 has made sure we believe that.
