After a long wait, “Rick and Morty” season 5 is finally almost here. But exactly what time does the new season air? What channel can you catch the show on if you’re watching on TV? Read on for all the details.
‘Rick and Morty’ Season 5 Episode 1 Airs Tonight at 11 PM Eastern
DATE & TIME: Sunday, June 20, 2021, at 11 p.m. Eastern. In the Central time zone, “Rick and Morty” airs at 10 p.m. Central. However, if you are in the Pacific time zone and watching on TV, you’ll have to wait until 11 p.m. Pacific according to Adult Swim’s schedule. (This is three hours after it premieres in the Eastern time zone.)
Please note that these times are also only relevant to the United States. In the UK, for example, new episodes are being released on Channel E4 at 10 p.m. on Monday, June 21, TechRadar reported.
LIVE STREAM: There are a lot of options for watching the new season live. If you don’t have cable for watching on TV, you can try options like FuboTV, Sling TV, AT&T TV, Hulu with Live TV, and more.
You can also watch it live on the Adult Swim app or on Adult Swim’s website here, but you’ll likely need a cable log-in for those options. Adult Swim does sometimes decide at the last minute to show an episode on the website for free, but typically provides little notice when this is going to happen.
Note that if you’re on the West Coast or the Pacific time zone (and likely also the Mountain time zone), you can see the episode earlier if watching via live stream. For example, during Season 4, Hulu with Live TV streamed “Rick and Morty” on the West Coast at the same time it was airing on the East Coast (which was three hours before it aired on TV in the West Coast.)

Adult Swim also provided a cold open for the first two minutes of the episode. A storyboard version of the cold open was provided previously, so the first few minutes of the episode might look familiar to some people.
