Rick and Morty's co-creator revealed Season 5 of the series almost started off with a much different episode! The fifth season of the Adult Swim animated series is currently gearing up for the release of its fourth episode at the time of this writing, and fans haven't been sure what quite to expect from it given that each of the episodes thus far have been dramatically different from one another. This all began with the season premiere which not only officially introduced Rick's nemesis to the series, but also sent Morty on several wild trips in time.
It turns out that the season could have started out in a much different place, with the second episode, "Mortyplicity," once considered a premiere before "Mort Dinner Rick Andre" was cemented in place. Speaking with The Wrap about the Season 5 premiere, Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland explained that the second episode was so "insane" that it was almost chosen as the Season 5 premiere as the team wasn't quite so sure for a time which to start everything off with.
"We’ve got binders and binders of ideas going back to Season 1 of stuff that we couldn’t crack at the time or moved on from because of something else. And there’s a couple of episodes that come from that stuff this season, sort of come from older ideas that we knew we wanted to do at some point," Roiland began. "Starting this season off though, it was tough because really there were two episodes and we weren’t sure which one should be the first episode of the season."
The order of the episodes just sort of stayed in place as Roiland noted, "[W]e kind of just kept the order that we had this whole time. We had a Mr. Nimbus episode, which is the official [premiere] episode of Season 5, and that’s been the first episode this whole time we’ve been working on Season 5." Elaborating further, Roiland stated how the second episode almost went first, "But the second episode, there was a period of time where that was maybe going to be moved to the first episode spot, just because it’s so f—ing insane and it kind of would make a great premiere."
It seems starting the new season with the Mr. Nimbus episode paid off, and now fans can't wait to see what's coming next from the season. But what did you think of Season 5's premiere? Would the second episode be a better starting point for the new season? What are you hoping to see before it all comes to an end? Let us know all of your thoughts about it in the comments!

Rick and Morty has shared the first look at Season 5's fifth episode in a new promo! The Adult Swim animated series is now a quarter way through its fifth season, and it's definitely been tough for fans to predict or even completely wrap their heads around what to expect from the season going forward. This was especially true for the fourth episode that had to have been a milestone for the series' strangest episode yet due to how much it seemingly got away with for a television broadcast. Now we'll soon see how they follow that up.
Following the release of the fourth episode on Adult Swim, Rick and Morty has released the first look at Season 5's fifth episode. As the halfway point of the season (which will thankfully not be cut off into two halves like the fourth season before it), it's starting off on a fun foot by teasing that Rick and Jerry will be heading out into a new adventure all on their own again like some of the best episodes in past seasons. Check out the promo below as shared by @swimpedia on Twitter:
The fifth season thus far has been bouncing between some major character growth episodes with ones completely throwing out the book for what to expect, so this smaller seeming premise of Rick and Jerry having a "guy's night" could somehow turn into something much more surprising by the time it all comes to an end. That's been the series before, but it's especially prevalent this season. We'll see soon for ourselves as Rick and Morty Season 5 Episode 5 is titled "Amortycan Grickfitti" and will be premiering on Sunday, July 18th on Adult Swim at 11:00PM EST.
If you wanted to catch up with the season, the first episode is now streaming completely for free with YouTube, and the rest of the season's released episodes are streaming on Adult Swim's website with a cable subscription. If you wanted to check out the seasons leading up to all of this, all four seasons of Rick and Morty are now streaming on HBO Max. But what do you think of this first look at Season 5's next episode? How are you liking Rick and Morty's new season so far? Let us know all of your thoughts about it in the comments!

It’s been over seven years since the Rick and Morty series premiere landed on Adult Swim. Now, we’re well into the fifth season, and many fans have noticed that Morty Smith hasn’t aged. So how old is Morty from Rick and Morty? Recently, co-creator Justin Roiland opened up about his character’s age and whether he’ll ever become an adult on the show.
Morty was 14-years-old when he was first introduced in Rick and Morty Season 1. Then the Adult Swim series recently confirmed that Morty still hasn’t aged.
Rick and Morty Season 5 Episode 3, titled “A Rickconvenient Mort,” emphasized Morty’s age and the intensity of teenage love. The episode introduced Planetina (voiced by Alison Brie), who was Morty’s new crush. Then Beth (voiced by Sarah Chalke) questioned their age difference.
Planetina was a “sentient amalgam of natural elements.” So age didn’t exactly “apply” to her. But it was clear that Morty was still just a kid. Later, Beth also confirmed Morty was just as old as he was when Rick and Morty premiered.
“My son is 14,” Beth said.
When speaking with Collider ahead of the Rick and Morty Season 5 premiere, Roiland reflected on how much time has passed since season 1.
“It’s funny because it’s almost been 10 years. The show premiered December of 2013,” Roiland said. “I’ve thought about this. I’m like, ‘I think it’s been less time than that.’”
Then the Rick and Morty co-creator revealed his thoughts on Morty’s age, hinting that he wants the character to remain in high school for some time.
He continued, “Personally, I’d prefer that high school always be on the table, because there’s so many fun stories you can do there, and to me, that’s a great place to go for character and story.”
While it’s possible Rick and Morty fans will never see Morty aged up, Roiland suggested that the team could “transition” the character into college. That said, it’s more likely the writers will reserve that type of storyline for Summer (voiced by Spencer Grammer) because she’s already older.
Regardless, it seems age doesn’t matter much in the Rick and Morty universe. While the characters haven’t aged in five seasons, they’re still given the opportunity to grow.
“There’s still character development and growth and stuff, but they’re all still locked into that same age,” Roiland told Collider. “We have these serialized things that we’re acknowledging and we’re paying things off emotionally and narratively and stuff. There’s consequences and time is going on, marching on, there’s Jerry [voiced by Chris Parnell] and Beth splitting up for a while and then getting back.”
He added, “Just all this stuff that’s happening that is serialized, yet we’re still having them all stay the same age, which is kind of a funny, interesting… who cares? It’s like, ‘We can do whatever we want.’ I don’t know, those things are a bit at odds with each other, but to me, I’m like… I think that would be us jumping the shark if it was like, ‘OK, Morty’s actually growing up.’”
Rick and Morty Season 5 airs Sunday nights on Adult Swim.
