Exciting New ‘Rick and Morty’ Season 5 Trailer; Plus, Watch an 8-bit ‘Rick and Morty’ Short Film!

Adult Swim

A hype-worthy new trailer has arrived for Rick and Morty season 5, unveiling more goodness from the next chapter of Adult Swim’s beloved animated sci-fi adventure series.  And as if that weren’t enough, we’ve got a 17-minute side-scrolling Rick and Morty short film for you to watch as well!

As you’d expect, the new official trailer offers up craziness galore for the next chapter, which will be kicking off a bit over a year after the season 4 finale aired in 2020. “I don’t nearly have the time to unpack this,” Beth Smith (voiced by Sarah Chalke) says in trailer, pretty much summing up why it’s a series that’s oh-so perfect for repeat viewings.

Fans, you’ll also have to check out the 17-min short film, Rick and Morty in the Eternal Nightmare Machine, from animator Paul Robertson. Easter eggs galore scattered throughout this nod to the 4-person side-scrolling games of yesteryear.

Rick and Morty season 5 will premiere on Adult Swim on June 20th – now being named ‘Rick and Morty Day’. As for what markets that entails: Adult Swim is in the US, the UK, Ireland, France, Norway, Denmark, Spain, Germany, Sweden, and Finland. Netflix has it for other territories, including Australia, although no season 5 release date has been announced on the streaming giant as yet.
