Need to know when to watch Rick and Morty season 5 episode 1 this weekend? The show airs on Sunday, June 20 on Adult Swim in the US and Monday, June 21 on E4 in the UK. Below, we’ll explain the exact times you can watch this new episode, and those that follow. The wait between season 4 and 5 hasn’t been as bad this time – the last season ended a little over a year ago, which isn’t so bad.
This week’s episode is called ‘Mort Dinner Rick Andre’, which is a not-very-subtle play on the title of classic movie My Dinner With Andre, just in case you didn’t get that. The premise sounds nice and simple, at least: Rick’s ocean-dwelling nemesis is coming over for dinner – and Morty ‘gets the wine’, according to the synopsis. Expect the series’ usual sci-fi escapades to expand from there.
Rick and Morty season 4 arguably lacked the same number of masterpiece-level episodes as previous seasons – though The Prestige-style twist in ‘The Acid Vat Adventure’ was certainly the stuff of an all-time great. We remain optimistic about season 5, then, as the team behind the show gradually eats through its 70-episode renewal order that’s expected to take the show to season 10.
Here’s when you can watch Rick and Morty season 5 where you are.
What time is Rick and Morty season 5 episode 1 airing on Adult Swim?
Rick and Morty season 5 episode 1 is airing on Adult Swim in the US on Sunday, June 20 at 11pm Eastern time (or 10pm Central time). With previous seasons, if you had your cable provider details handy, you were able to watch new episodes on Adult Swim’s website – we’re hoping that’ll be the case here, too.
Rick and Morty season 5 release schedule
It hasn’t been clarified if 10 episodes of Rick and Morty season 5 will release without a hiatus this time, as we saw with season 4, but we’re hopeful we’ll see the entire run play out over the coming months. For now, three episode titles are out there with confirmed airdates – you’ll find those below.
- Rick and Morty season 5 episode 1 (‘Mort Dinner Rick Andre’) – Sunday, June 20
- Rick and Morty season 5 episode 2 (‘Mortyplicity’) – Sunday, June 27
- Rick and Morty season 5 episode 3 (“A Rickconvenient Mort”) – Sunday, July 4
When is Rick and Morty season 5 airing on E4 in the UK?
Rick and Morty season 5 will air on the UK channel E4 at 10pm this coming Monday, June 21, with new episodes to follow each Monday. We’d expect to see the episodes streaming on All4 afterwards, with ads, for a limited time.
Will Rick and Morty season 5 be released on Netflix UK?
There’s no word on that right now. But if Rick and Morty season 4 is anything to go by, the entire season will likely air on E4 and come to Netflix some months later – assuming the streamer has a continuing deal to keep showing the series.
