Ricky And Morty Season 5-“Epic Canon”
The fifth season of Rick and Morty is currently in the works. “Epic canon” arriving in season 5 is teasing one of the producers and writers for the series.
The fourth season of Rick and Morty wrapped up its final episodes earlier this year so viewers have started the fifth season countdown. But although some of the dangling plot lines left over from the third were discussed in the fourth season of the series, it instead returned to the episodic format of the early seasons rather than potentially continuing its own canon. But with Season 5, that is going to change, according to producer and writer Scott Marder.
Co-creator Dan Harmon was asked about possible teases and developments for the fifth season of the series during the Rick and Morty Global Celebration panel during the Adult Swim Festival (which went virtual this year), but was unable to come up with something specific,
“I think we’re working on Season 7 right now, I can’t even keep track. I wouldn’t know if I were spoiling Season 5 or Season 6.”

But he did note that during the Season 4 final, we will see more of the Space Beth
“There’s pretty groovy things coming regarding Beth…Space Beth was not a one-off character. That’s a thing that could have been the case.”
“There’s epic canon in Season 5 coming,” Marder stated.
“Fans are gonna like get knocked over by the canon we’re about to hit them with.” Elaborating further, Marder could not go into detail much but relayed his excitement about the new season, “I’m a huge fan before I even got to be on the show, so to get to write for it, I get to feed my excitement of loving this show before I get to write for it. So you’ll feel that in the show. Season 5, all the stuff we’re doing is so awesome.”
Season 5 Teases Space Beth Part
Two Beths are now doing the rounds in the Rick and Morty-verse with the production of a cloned Beth in season three, and no-one knows which one is the true one.
Of course, one was off having her own adventures as Space Beth, returning earlier this year in season four, but even Rick is unsure who the original is really.
“I don’t want to keep secrets with the audience. She’s Schrodinger’s Beth right now. The fact she may or may not be a clone is actually the important thing.
“It’s the profound revelation about Rick’s commitment to non-commitment and how abusive that can be as a parent,” he added.
“That is the important thing here. We’re adding aunts to the family. We’re having fun looking at more options with Space Beth.”
But what are you thinking? Are canon episodes of Rick and Morty a big deal?
