Rick and Morty season 5's release schedule has been... surprisingly normal. But never discount Dan Harmon's ability to throw us through a loop. Mercifully, though, it appears that the show's beleaguered history of long gaps between seasons and only small batches of episodes being released are very much a thing of the past.

Simply put: the Rick and Morty season 5, episode 8 release date is business as usual. While some of the actual episodes themselves may have switched order in recent weeks, that hasn't affected Adult Swim pumping them out every single Sunday. Plus, for Rick and Morty fans across the pond, we've got the latest on when to watch new season five episodes in the UK.
