How long will we have to wait until Rick and Morty season 5? Us fans of a certain belching scientist and his pubescent grandson sidekick needn’t fret now that season 4: there are loads more episodes to come to Adult Swim, and the wait between seasons should be plenty shorter. Rick and Morty season 4’s continuity-heavy finale leaves a lot to think about, too, especially around Beth – but we won’t spoil that here if you haven’t seen it yet.
Production problems on the wacky intergalactic animation forced us to wait years between seasons, but following confirmation of a Rick and Morty season 5 in July 2019, co-creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon have stressed that the wait won’t be as long this time.
Season 5’s Release Date Might Be Delayed
Interviews with different people involved in Rick and Morty have revealed that Season 5 might be delayed. Some viewers had hoped that it would return a year from the Season 4 premiere now that Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland aren’t always waiting for the series to be renewed. Sadly, there’s reason to believe that the pandemic might delay it. Season 4 premiered on November 10, 2019.
Sarah Chalke, who voices Beth, in mid-May that the recording process for some Season 5 episodes was on hold due to the pandemic.
She said: “So, season 5, we haven’t read yet. They’re writing it already. But as it stands, we are going to most likely hold off on recording until things settle down a little bit, in terms of when… you know, maybe if there was an option that we could possibly record… you know, when we could record back at the studio.”
Chris Parnell — who voices Jerry — told IGN in early May that while the season was written and partially storyboarded, the actors hadn’t recorded their lines yet.
He said: “We have not started recording Season 5, but I know they have, certainly, episodes written and have it boarded to a certain extent. But I don’t know when we’ll start recording.”
IGN estimated that this means we won’t see new episodes until some time in 2021 at the earliest.
