First Episode Of Rick And Morty Season 5 Has Landed In Australia On Same Day As The US

The first episode of Rick and Morty Season 5 has landed in Australia on the same day as the US.

The previous season, which was split into two halves, was delayed coming down under when it initially aired in America last year.

Aussies had to wait several months before they could watch it on Netflix and many used VPNs or even watched it on Pornhub to feast their eyes and ears on the new content.

However, this time round Adult Swim has listened to the fans.

The first episode, 'Mort Dinner Rick Andre', has dropped on the streaming service and it's 22 minutes of classic, ridiculous Rick and Morty.

It deals with the scientist's arch nemesis: Nimbus, the king of the ocean and a man who can control police with the thrust of his pelvis (it sounds outrageous but it will make sense when you watch it).

Beth and Jerry are exploring being sex positive and Morty finally nails a date with his high school crush Jessica, however things don't go exactly as planned when he deals with a Narnia-like portal to another world.

So, if yesterday's antics on Netflix are anything to go by, it means we'll get episode two, 'Mortyplicity', next Monday (June 27) at 1pm after it debuts in America.

Then we can expect 'A Rickconvenient Mort' the following week on July 5. There hasn't been any other episode announcements as of yet but we're crossing fingers and toes that they will be dished out week by week.

Producer Scott Marder, writer Dan Harmon and Spencer Grammer - the voice of Summer - spoke with LADbible during a roundtable interview earlier this month and were asked about the possibility of a feature length Rick and Morty film.

Scott, who has also worked on It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, explained: "It'd be daunting, I wouldn't be shocked if there was one that comes down the pipe one day.

"I feel like every episode is a movie. I'd like to see what a movie would be, I feel like we pack so much in. It'd have to be pretty epic."

Spencer added: "It'd have to be something so big - like a 3D interactive movie that also has a theme park. I don't know if you could just do a straight movie.

"There are those 4D movie theatres in New York City. I think it will happen. I do think it will happen."
