The sociopathic genius scientist Rick Sanchez will return to doing what he does best, taking more multi-dimensional journeys dragging along his grandson Morty as his timid sidekick. The new season will feature some familiar faces from previous episodes while introducing new characters that will join Rick and Morty in the upcoming episodes.
Season 4 was released last year in March with the season finale in May and Season 5 is expected to follow similar release periods. The co-creator of the animated series, Dan Harmon, revealed the team was working remotely on new episodes amid the COVID-19 pandemic and several industry lockdowns.
