With only a little more than twenty-four hours to go until Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland's dimension-hopping duo return for Season 5, Adult Swim is offering fans a look at the cold open to this weekend's return of Rick and Morty. First thing, it's nice to see how the scene looks now that the animatics have been fleshed out from ur previous preview. Second, Rick is in some seriously bad shape. Third, did Morty just make a date with Jessica?!? Fourth, who knew Rick had an "arch-nemesis"? Lastly, yeah- he does strike us as someone who says their name a lot in a very lofty fashion.
Here's a look at the cold open to this Sunday's fifth season premiere of Adult Swim's Rick and Morty, "Mort Dinner Rick Andre":
This Sunday, June 20, the out-of-this-world celebration "Global Rick and Morty Day (#GlobalRickAndMortyDay)" kicks off to honor the series return with special surprises, fun moments, and celebrations.
