Rick and Morty season 5 is set to return very soon and it'll be worth the wait. 

For the first time in the show's history, Rick and Morty will be delivering a one-hour episode straight into our eyeholes. Even better, we now have a confirmed time and release date for what was once Rick and Morty episode 9 and has now morphed into something much bigger. Fans will remember the months-long break last season and can now rest easy that it's not happening on such a scale again.

So get ready to get schwifty: here's when you can watch the new Rick and Morty season 5 episode, as well as a look at what's come before.
