The trailer for Rick and Morty season five has arrived and it has all the crazy inter-dimensional antics fans of the show have come to expect. The video also confirms a June 2021 release. The team behind the hit animated comedy has been busy ever since season four ended as the network Adult Swim made a huge order of 70 additional episodes.
The trailer has fish people, giant insects and other assorted weirdness that would require the context of the episodes that contain them to be understood.
Season four of the show arguably lacked some of the depth and character development that previous seasons had. Prior to that, the show often shifted between humorous and poignant looks at Rick’s alcoholism, narcissism and loneliness, along with how his character affected his family. Hopefully, the new set of episodes will mark a return to a focus on long-form storytelling and character development.
