TV Premiere Dates & Schedule for May 2020

Rick and Morty Season 4 Episode 2

Adult Swim

May is nearly here, and since half the globe is still in partial lock down mode due to the COVID-19 pandemic, you might be looking for something to watch while waiting for everything to reopen. If so, Heavy has you covered – May is packed full of some excellent TV premieres, returning favorites, long-awaited returns and plenty of exciting events to keep you occupied during quarantine.

The highly anticipated remaining five episodes of Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty will be returning on Sunday, May 3, followed by Solar Opposites, another Justin Roiland adult cartoon which premieres Friday, May 8 on Hulu. Lifetime will be airing several Married at First Sight specials leading up to the premiere of Married at First Sight: Couples’ Cam, which premieres May 20, and a strange new reality show called Labor of Love, which features 15 men competing to father a woman’s child, airs on May 21.
