Rick and Morty season four is finally here after more than two years of waiting. Episode five was titled Rattlestar Ricklactica, a homage to the sci-fi series, Battlestar Galactica. Express.co.uk has everything you need to know about the return of Rick and Morty.
Will Rick and Morty be on this week?
This season, episodes of Rick and Morty have aired every Sunday on Adult Swim in the US and every Wednesday on E4 in the UK.
Season five aired on Sunday, December 15 in the US and will arrive on this side of the Atlantic on Wednesday, December 18.
Unfortunately, there is some bad news for Rick and Morty fans.
Episode five was the series midseason finale, so there will be no episode of Rick and Morty this week.

The midseason premiere and episode six of season four will arrive at some point in 2020.
Although a release date for the remaining five episodes has not been confirmed, Rick and Morty co-creator, Dan Harmon has promised fans they will not have to wait long for the show to return.
Fans have previously had to wait two years between each season since 2013 and this is the first time the animated series has taken a break.
Harmon told Entertainment Weekly: “I think it’s safe to say without fear of being wrong that the gap between seasons three and four will be the longest and last time that it’s ever so long that it’s ridiculous.
“I don’t know how fast we can do it, but I know it will never be this long again.
“There were so many things that had to be settled before we even started season four, and it’s really safe to say we’re literally writing season five while finishing season four just to force ourselves to commit to a certain schedule.”
Spencer Grammer, who voices Summer on the show teased in an interview with Collider that the rest of season five is not far away.
She said: “We have another five [episodes] coming out eventually, sooner than later.”
The last time Rick and Morty took a midseason break was in season one in 2013.
The show took six-week break between episodes six and seven, so season four could follow suit.

At first, Rick and Morty’s fans thought they were only going to be given five episodes for the fourth season.
This was because when the trailer was revealed, only five episode titles were revealed.
The tag line for the trailer read: “Half the Season you deserve, all the season we can handle.”
Thankfully, Rick and Morty was renewed for 70 episodes in May 2018, with the first 10 of the 70 making up season four.
Co-creator Dan Harmon had previously told Entertainment Weekly that his plan for season four was 14 episodes but it was cut down to 10.
The titles for season four so far are:
- Rick and Morty season 4, episode 5: Will next release date be delayed?
- Episode One: Edge of Tomorty: Rick Die Repeat
- Episode Two: The Old Man and the Seat
- Episode Three: One Crew Over the Crewcoo’s Morty
- Episode Four: Claw and Hoarder: Special Ricktim’s Morty
