‘Rick and Morty’ Season 5 Episode 1: Live Countdown to the Premiere

Rick and Morty Season 5

Adult Swim Rick and Morty Season 5

Adult Swim’s “Rick and Morty” is finally back for Season 5. Rick and Morty Season 5 Episode 1 will return to Adult Swim on TV at 11 p.m. Eastern (10 p.m. Central and 11 p.m. Pacific) on Sunday, June 20, 2021. But if you’re counting down every second until it airs, we have several options for live countdowns for you.

It’s important to note that the episode is actually airing 30 minutes earlier than it traditionally premiered in previous seasons.


Live Countdowns for ‘Rick and Morty’ Season 5 Episode 1 in Eastern & Central Time Zones

The first live countdown is below. It’s counting down to 11 p.m. Eastern on Sunday, June 20. This countdown also works for people who are watching in the Central time zone, but not for West Coast viewers unless they’re watching through an online live stream like Hulu with Live TV. If you’re watching on a mobile browser, the countdown below may work best if you watch in portrait mode (holding your phone horizontally) rather than vertically. Although the countdown has been tested on most browsers, if it doesn’t work right on yours, you can go directly to the countdown here.

Here’s another countdown, which you can see by clicking here.

If you miss the premiere, Adult Swim will be re-airing the episode at 3 a.m. Eastern on Monday, June 21, and then at midnight on June 22, followed by 10:30 p.m. Eastern on June 22 and then 3 a.m. Eastern on June 23. The episode will air multiple more times throughout the week. You can see the full schedule here.


Live Countdowns for West Coast Viewers

If you’re watching on TV in the West Coast (Pacific time zone) then you won’t be able to watch the new episode at the same time as your Eastern and Central time zone friends. On the West Coast, Season 5 Episode 1 premieres on TV at 11 p.m. Pacific. (If you’re in the Mountain time zone, that’s 12 a.m. Mountain.) This is three hours after it premieres for Eastern time zone viewers. In your case, the countdown above will not work for you.

The countdown below is only for Pacific/West Coast viewers who are watching on TV at 11 p.m. Pacific. If you’re watching on a live stream or an online service like Hulu, then you’ll likely need to use the countdown in the section above.
