Leer en español: Todo sobre la quinta temporada de Rick y Morty

Rick and Morty caused a stir in the community. With a first release in 2013, it quickly became a hit. According to what the Menzig website highlights, this is the "animated series of the moment", which generates millions of products sold by merchandising, awards from all over and excellent critic and fan reviews. 

The premise is basic: after being missing for 20 years, scientist Rick Sánchez arrives at his daughter Beth's house and decides to have adventures with his grandson, known as Morty. Well, recently we observed that the medium Hobbyconsolas highlighted that a fifth season of this story was announced, which already has a trailer. Let's see some possible details.

The details of the fifth season of Rick and Morty

First of all, it should be noted that we are talking about a hilarious series, but also a very interesting universe. For example, the Ecoosfera website highlights that each chapter “is a fun and sometimes sadistic science lesson”, in addition to an enormous ride of entertainment. Therefore, both worlds are combined in a great way.

Well, based on this new fifth stage, we have some interesting data that could guide our vision of events. The first thing we can confirm is that the cast will remain, with the characters of Rick Sánchez, Beth Smith, Jerry Smith, Summer Smith, Tammy, Birdperson, among others.

All these characters seem to achieve, according to what El Mundo mentions, a “combination of parody of science fiction, irreverent social criticism and references to great films”. Because, despite being very fun, it can also show many of the cruelties of the world, all through its fantastic and complete characters.

In this way, we also have some important assumptions in terms of narrative. Based on what we see in the trailer, the story will address themes of life and death, including touching on aspects such as depression. So much so that in that video the figure of Rick appears without animating, hoping to get out of his body ... although later he regains the will to live, so we could see a stage where the feelings of the characters are further explored.

Also, this season could be the moment of revelation of one of the most popular theories of recent times regarding the most successful series of Adult Swim. According to what the IndieHoy website highlights, there is a hypothesis that, in reality, the scientist Rick is a clone, since he has several episodes asking to rescue his original "me". Therefore, it would not be unreasonable for them to address this theme in the fifth season.

At the same time, according to the CNet media, fans of the animated series had to wait for two years for this return, since the last season was divided into two parts. However, it seems that we should not wait so long for this next season, since, in May 2018, Adult Swim commissioned 70 new episodes of this story created by Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland.

This would imply that, calculating 10 episodes per seasons, there would be seven seasons of the show, so the schedule for the coming years is clear. At the same time, it is not only thinking about the short term, but also the future. For example, the specialized website of Tónica announced that the writers of this story "are already working on season 6", so we will see more adventures of these characters beyond this fifth installment, which seems very interesting.
