Season five of the animated comedy is set to premiere in the US on 20 June, before hitting UK screens when it drops on E4 at some point later month.

Producer Scott Marder, writer Dan Harmon and Spencer Grammer - the voice of Summer - spoke to the media during a roundtable interview today, when they 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."

Scott added: "I think it will happen. I do think it will happen."

When questioned by Spencer on whether it would be live action, he said it would be animated.

At this stage, no plans are in place, but with Justin Roiland - the voice of the titular characters - also saying he'd be up for it, it seems it's more a matter of 'when', not 'if'.

Celebrating the release of his company's first video game, 'Trover Saves The Universe', Justin Roiland took part in a Reddit AMA session in 2019, revealing that he would 'love' to take the cult series to the big screen.

One fan posed the question, asking: "Will we get a feature length Rick and Morty film ever? A rated R film that's totally bananas?"

And Roiland didn't disappoint, uttering the words fans have always wanted to hear: "I would love to do that, yeah. Hmm. Hmmmmmm."

The show was renewed for at least a few more seasons, when Adult Swim ordered 70 more episodes in 2018.

During a separate roundtable event, Sarah Chalke - the voice of Beth - said that season six is currently being recorded, while season seven is also underway.

Sarah, who previously played Elliot in Scrubs, also confirmed that she would be happy to do the show for as long as she could.

When asked about the future of her role, Sarah told LADbible she would continue the show 'forever and ever, in every multiverse and every other dimension'.

Writer Alex Rubens recently shared that there really is no rest for the team.

Posting on Twitter, he said: "Am I allowed to say we started writing Rick and Morty Season 7? (If not we didn't and I'm not)."

Series creator Dan Harmon let slip last year that the seventh season was in progress, but he didn't seem too sure about the whole thing, admitting it was hard to keep up.

"I think we're working on season seven right now," he said. "I can't even keep track.

"I wouldn't know if I were spoiling season five or season six."
