We got a sweet, sweet taste of Season 5 of Rick & Morty early last month and now the official trailer for the new season has been released and it is chock-full of pop culture references, including: interlocking robot cat vehicles, a la Voltron; a trip to a cybernetic world reminiscent of the Transformers homeworld, plus “hang loose” emblemed transforming robots; and a gigantic stellar Galactus ripoff who seems hell-bent on snacking on a miniature solar system. Oh, and even more of Rick’s mysterious arch-nemesis who looks more than a little like Namor the Sub-Mariner. Wubba lubba dub dub!
Rick and Morty was created and executive produced by Dan Harmon (Community) and Justin Roiland (Solar Opposites). The insanely brilliant, Emmy-winning half-hour adult cartoon follows the universe’s smartest, most self-destructive, scientist Rick Sanchez (Roiland) and his reality-shattering adventures through space and parallel dimensions with his dim-witted, but good-hearted, grandson Morty (Roiland); his snarky teenage granddaughter Summer (Spencer Grammer); his neurotic, sometimes-psychotic daughter Beth (Sarah Chalke); and his completely inept son-in-law Jerry (Chris Parnell).
Rick and Morty Season 5 debuts on Adult Swim on June 20th at 11pm ET/PT on Adult Swim.
