Rick and Morty Season 5 is almost complete even before the fourth season is over and it could release sooner than you think. The show creator Justin Roiland has also teased that the next season of Rick and Morty could have a monthly episode release schedule. It means new episodes in the fifth season could be rolled out monthly rather than weekly, like the first four seasons.

Rick and Morty have never been consistent in terms of release schedule as there were gaps of years between the seasons and the latest season had a break of about five months in between. Rick and Morty Season 5 release date could come way earlier in case the new schedule is applied and episodes are released on a monthly basis.
Rick and Morty Episodes releasing Monthly without Splitting the Season
Rick and Morty Season 4 was split into two halves and fans were furious over the delay and the mid-season break. Adult Swim has ordered 70 new episodes of Rick and Morty which would be divided into multiple seasons. However, it is clear that the production of the animated sitcom takes a lot of time and the creators are only able to produce one episode every month.
I like the idea of thinking outside the box with how any show is delivered to the masses. If you do one a month, the show is alive the whole year and you’re still buying us all the time we need to make them as good as they need to be.
It is why Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon wants to have a monthly episode release schedule for Rick and Morty Season 5 as it would give them plenty of time to work on the show without splitting the fifth season into two halves. Fans would also love to see “Rick and Morty” season 5 releasing new episode every 30 days so that they don’t have to wait in the dark without any proper updates.
Rick and Morty Season 5 is Almost Complete
Rick and Morty Season 5 is under progress and can easily release in the next few days if they apply the monthly schedule. The creators of the animated show just needs to complete the first episode of the fifth season, as they will get a month of time to work on the second, without any delays or gaps. However, nothing is confirmed till now and fans can only hope that Rick and Morty Season 5 release date is announced soon with a new format and schedule.
