When Will Rick and Morty Season 5 Premiere?
There unfortunately is no set release date just yet for Season 5 of the series, but work on it is already underway. The wait fortunately does not seem to be lasting as long as not only have several stars behind the series confirmed that writing has already begun on Season 5 (with Dan Harmon even mentioning that Season 6 was being developed).
What will be a damper in that production, unfortunately, is the currently ongoing novel COVID-19 pandemic. In a previous interview, Sarah Chalke (the voice behind Beth Smith) mentioned that the cast themselves have yet to read for the season, "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."
This statement falls in line with a previous statement from Chris Parnell on the same matter, who also revealed that while Season 5 is currently in the works the cast has yet to record. But that being said, both cast members have revealed their positive feelings toward how Season 5 is progressing compared to the other seasons.
