It is FINALLY time for Rick and Morty season 5! The last season ended with both family Beth and scifi Beth deciding they no longer cared which one was the clone. They ended up becoming an even bigger family that was less dependent on Rick. This season we will see if the Smith family will actually be done with Rick or if he will be able to hold on to his weakened position in the household. While all this drama is going on there will likely be dozens of easter eggs depicting references, callbacks, inside jokes and clues to the show’s biggest mysteries.
So far the series has given us plenty of easter eggs that reference the likes of Star Wars, Midnight Run, Gravity Falls, Zardoz, Doctor Who, Futurama, Community, Farscape and so many more. It seems like Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland watched every single obscure 80’s and 90’s movie in order to prepare for writing this series for Adult Swim. Some of the jokes and designs for the series make absolutely no sense unless you’ve seen an obscure Stephen King adaptation.
Not only that but the series has made references to Rick’s past such as his brief rockstar career and where those alien parasites really came from. Not to mention Jerry’s lingering friendship with the one and only Doofus Rick.
