One episode down. Rick and Morty season 5, episode 2 is next. But, as fans will know only all too well, the show's release schedule can be scattered at the best of times. Don't worry, there is a new episode next week and, if you want to get ahead of the instantly iconic memes and spoilers that will fill up your social media feeds, though, you have to go one further than just a release date.

Whether you're in the US or UK, we've got you covered for not only the Rick and Morty season 5, episode 2 release date but also what time it airs on both Adult Swim and E4. No Mr. Nimbus this week, we hope, but you're not going to want to miss out on this.

While we don’t have official confirmation, it is expected that Rick and Morty season 5 will air every Sunday over 10 weeks. However, the Rick and Morty season 5 release schedule has only been set for the first three episodes, which you can see below. The episodes that have already aired are in bold.

  • Rick and Morty season 5, episode 1 ("Mort Dinner Rick Andre") – Sunday, June 20
  • Rick and Morty season 5, episode 2 ("Mortyplicity") – Sunday, June 27
  • Rick and Morty season 5, episode 3 ("A Rickconvenient Mort") – Sunday, July 4

We’ll update this page as soon as we know more about whether the full season will air across June, July, and August or whether it’s going to pull a season four and be split into two halves of five episodes. Here’s hoping it’s the former.
