Rick and Morty season 5 trailer prepares us for the June premiere

Adult Swim also announces ‘Rick and Morty Day’

You never quite know when Rick and Morty will return from hiatus for a new season, so hey, just so you know: Rick and Morty is returning from hiatus for a new season. Adult Swim announced on Tuesday that season 5 of Dam Harmon and Justin Roiland’s animated comedy will debut on June 20.

The kickoff for a new season will also beget “Rick and Morty Day,” which promises “sneak peeks, behind the scenes footage and special surprises across TV, digital and social.”

While there are lingering plotlines that the show has yet to wrap up, the Rick and Morty season 5 trailer mostly sticks to what every batch of R&M episodes promises: intergalactic, multiversal madness. In the short glimpse of the new season, we see everything from Rick’s version of Voltron to some kind of BDSM planet that also involves marlin. Extremely Rick and Morty.

Back in 2018, Adult Swim ordered a whopping 70 episodes of Rick and Morty, a number that would likely take the animated series to 10 seasons. It’s a prized possession for the network, and now a prized possession for WarnerMedia as a whole — the trailer reminds fans that all four seasons of the show are currently streaming on HBO Max. (Polygon has reached out to Adult Swim to clarify whether new episodes will premiere there after their TV debut.)

Rick and Morty season 5 premieres on June 20 at 11 p.m. ET.
