Rick and Morty Season 5 premieres June 21 with an out-of-this-world event

Fans around the world will celebrate the 5th season of Rick and Morty with a premiere in outer space, a curated experience on HBO GO, and more.

Rick and Morty is releasing on June 21 in the Philippines (June 20 in the US), and to celebrate, an out-of-this-world event called Global Rick and Morty Day is coming to fans in time for the Philippines’ premiere. The mind-bending event will feature special surprises, fun moments and celebrations.

For starters, Adult Swim will premiere the first episode from space! To do this, Adult Swim will launch Rick’s Space Cruiser 150,000ft (45,720m) into the atmosphere. Fans from around the world can Go Rick Yourself and become part of the series by creating a personalized avatar to commemorate the new season.

Meanwhile, Filipino Fans can also catch up on all things Rick and Morty prior to the premiere through HBO GO’s curated fan viewing experience. This event features family-themed episodes from previous seasons, and was made available last Monday, June 14.

In case you’re unfamiliar the series is an animated show created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon for Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim. The series is an animated show that has a unique sci-fi story filled with offbeat (and often violent/crude) humor.

The series is described as:

“Rick Sanchez is living with his daughter Beth’s family and constantly bringing her, his son-in-law Jerry, granddaughter Summer, and grandson Morty into intergalactic escapades.  Rick and Morty was the #1 comedy across all of television in 2017 and 2019 and has become a multi-platform sensation not just on television, but across digital, gaming, live streaming, retail and fan experiences.”
