The next episode of Rick and Morty is back on Adult Swim tonight, after a phenomenal start to the new season. Rick and Morty Season 4 Episode 2 premieres at 11:30 p.m. Eastern (10:30 p.m. Central/11:30 p.m. Pacific) on Adult Swim. Many of the live stream options listed below include free trials, so you can watch Rick and Morty for free if you try one of those free trial options.
If you don’t have cable, you can watch new Rick and Morty episodes live or on-demand on your computer, phone, Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV or other streaming device via one of the following cable-free, live-TV streaming subscription services, all of which include Adult Swim.
Adult Swim/Cartoon Network is part of the 95-plus live TV channels included in the main FuboTV bundle.
You can start a free 7-day trial of FuboTV right here, and you can then watch Rick and Morty live on your computer via the FuboTV website, or on your phone (Android and iPhone supported), tablet, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast or other supported device via the FuboTV app.
If you didn’t watch live, FuboTV comes with a 72-hour lookback feature, which means new episodes of Rick and Morty are available on-demand for three days after they air live. As such, Season 4 Episode 2 is currently available.
FuboTV also comes with 30 hours of Cloud DVR (with the ability to upgrade to 500 hours), allowing you to schedule recordings of future episodes.
AT&T TV Now (formerly DirecTV Now) offers six different channel bundles. They range from 45 to 125 live TV channels, but they all include Adult Swim/Cartoon Network.
You can start a free trial of AT&T TV Now right here (select “Start Streaming” in the top right corner), and you can then watch a live stream of Rick and Morty episodes on your computer via the AT&T TV Now website, or on your phone (Android and iPhone supported), tablet Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast or other compatible streaming device via the AT&T TV app.
If you can’t watch live, AT&T TV Now–no matter what channel package you choose–comes with included cloud DVR.
In addition to a Netflix-like on-demand streaming library, Hulu also offers a bundle of 60-plus live TV channels, which includes Adult Swim/Cartoon Network.
You can sign up for “Hulu with Live TV” right here, and you can then watch a live stream of Rick and Morty episodes on your computer via the Hulu website, or on your phone (Android and iPhone supported), tablet, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Echo Show or other streaming device via the Hulu app.
If you can’t watch live, “Hulu with Live TV” comes with an extensive on-demand library (which includes the complete first three seasons of Rick and Morty, and will have new Season 4 episodes available after they air) and 50 hours of Cloud DVR storage (with the ability to upgrade to “Enhanced Cloud DVR,” which gives you 200 hours of DVR space and the ability to fast forward through commercials).
Note that regular Hulu (different from Hulu With Live TV) does not have new episodes of Rick and Morty at this time. It only has the first three seasons.
‘Rick and Morty’ Season 4 Episode 2 Preview
A preview for the new episode is below.
During Comic-Con, Adult Swim released a longer clip from next week’s episode. You can watch it below. It’s just called “Glootie.”
And here’s another clip from Episode 2, shared by Adult Swim.
During last week’s premiere, the show didn’t address any of the lingering questions on fans’ minds, like whether Beth is a clone, or where Evil Morty is right now, or whether Bird Person is ever coming back. But the episode was still phenomenal and quite possibly one of the best in the series. There will be spoilers for last week’s episode below.
There were some great moments in the different fascist universes (including one where Teddy Bear Rick simply killed himself immediately.) Morty was taken over by a death crystal and had a crazy Akira moment, before realizing that the happy ending he thought he was going to have with Jessica was actually a cruel plot twist.
Rick seems to pretty much be immortal, meanwhile, and we saw a hilarious encounter with a Kirkland’s brand Meeseeks. There was also a super creepy scene where Wasp Rick and his family ate a caterpillar and his three babies.
Hologram Rick’s growth (and final fall) was fascinating. And the “return” of Gearhead (albeit in another dimension) was a nice touch. Overall, it was a compelling and hilarious episode that marked a strong start for the new season.
Five new episodes are scheduled to premiere in 2019. One episode is being released every week at 11:30 p.m. Eastern on Sunday nights.
Season 4 is supposed to be 10 episodes long, but the trailer only mentions five episodes. However, Justin Roiland tweeted on November 10 that the new season is going to be 10 episodes long for sure.
It looks like that means five episodes will air in 2019, then a holiday hiatus, and then five more.
After you’ve watched the premiere, come back and take our poll.
