How to live stream
You can live stream Season 5 on Adult Swim.
'Rick and Morty' follows the adventures of eccentric, alcoholic scientist, Rick, who along with his 14-year old grandson, Morty, tend to go on adventures across the galaxy. The two of them tend to get up to all sorts of problems across multiple dimensions and parallel universes as well, with Rick mostly landing them in the said mess, while Morty unwillingly goes along with his grandfather's over-the-top plans. The show also features Beth, Rick's daughter and Morty's mother, along with her husband Jerry, who Rick particularly enjoys antagonizing. The series also features Summer, Rick's granddaughter and Morty's 17-year-old sister. The entire family often gets involved in Rick's over-the-top schemes and situations, each more bizarre than the other.
Roiland voices Rick Sanchez and Morty Smith, the two main characters of the show. Apart from voicing the characters of Rick and Morty on the series 'Rick and Morty', he is also the co-creator of the same. Roiland has had a long-standing voice acting career, seeing that he's worked on projects such as 'Adventure Time' and 'Gravity Falls'.
Chris Parnell reprises his role as Jerry Smith, Rick's son-in-law, and Morty's father. His works include 'Saturday Night Live', '30 Rock', 'Archer' and 'Hotel Transylvania'.
Spencer Grammer will be voicing Summer Smith, Rick's granddaughter and Morty's sister. Grammer played the lead role of Casey Cartwright in the series 'Greek.' Her other works include 'Ironside', 'Clubhouse', 'Robot Chicken', and 'Grey's Anatomy.'
Sarah Chalke lends her voice as Beth Smith, Rick's daughter, and Morty's mother. She is known for her role as Elliot Reid on 'Scrubs'. Her other works include 'How I Met Your Mother', 'Cougar Town', 'Paradise PD' and 'Firefly Lane'.
Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon are the creators of the series. Roiland's works include 'Adventure Time', 'Gravity Falls' and 'Invincible'. Harmon, on the other hand, has worked on 'Community' and 'Monster House'.
In classic 'Rick and Morty' fashion, the trailer kicks off with Jerry, Summer, Rick, Morty, and Beth making their way through a foggy forest. Obviously trying to get away from something, Summer and Rick begin to bicker, setting off a chain of events. This season proves to be just as bizarre as ever -- expect to see Rick and Beth in bondage gear, a giant Mantis Kaiju and Mr. Nimbus, Rick's eternal foe, or as Jerry calls him -- 'strange, horny ocean man'. There is also what looks like a Voltron-esque montage, seeing that we see the Smith family in matching gear and vehicles. Looks like fans will be seeing some mecha this season. All in all, brace yourself for some weird, over-the-top, intergalactic shenanigans.
