It was previously revealed that Rick and morty Season 5 would take a hiatus next Sunday August 15 (which will be dominated not only by Tuca & Bertiethe season 2 finale, but a marathon in the new season that follows), but a new list of programs spotted by @swimpedia on Twitter also revealed that there will be no new episode of Rick and morty Sunday August 22 either. This means that it will be necessary to wait at least two weeks between episodes 8 and 9 of season 5.
It has not yet been officially confirmed whether or not Rick and morty will miss two Sundays in a row, and the reason for the delay has not been revealed, but fans are hoping that means it will ultimately mean a two-part season finale when the new season finally returns. Considering the several-month hiatus between the first and the last five episodes of Season 4, this hiatus doesn’t seem too serious in comparison.
With Rick and Morty already confirmed for seasons 6, 7 (with Season 7 of the series recently wrapping up the writing portion of its production), and many more episodes to come as well as newly produced animated shorts by over creators following the success of the first three shorts, that expectation may sting, but at least fans can rest in the knowledge that there are still many more new episodes for years to come.
Then again, it’s also unclear whether this hiatus will end after just two weeks either, but we’ll see soon enough because Rick and MortyThe next new episode of airs on Adult Swim on Sunday, August 8 at 11:00 p.m. EST.
