Nearly a year after fans last dove back into the sci-fi hijinks of its titular mad scientist and his grandson, Adult Swim has debuted the first official trailer for the highly-anticipated Rick and Morty Season 5 also revealing a June premiere date for the latest group of episodes from its major renewal order in 2018.

In addition to the season premiere, the WarnerMedia-owned network has announced that June 20 will now officially be known as Rick and Morty Day, an out-of-this world celebration of the Emmy-winning series packed full of sneak peeks, behind-the-scenes footage and special surprises across TV, digital and social medias, all kicking off with the premiere.
The series is an award-winning half-hour animated comedy centered on the sociopathic genius scientist Rick and his inherently timid grandson Morty, both voiced by co-creator Justin Roiland (Solar Opposites), as they go on increasingly dangerous adventures across the multiverse, much to the dismay of Rick’s daughter Beth and the rest of her family, similarly timid son-in-law Jerry and teenage granddaughter Summer.

Alongside Roiland, the cast for the series includes Sarah Chalke (Firefly Lane) as Smith family matriarch Beth, Chris Parnell (Saturday Night Live, Archer) as Smith patriarch Jerry and Spencer Grammer (Tell Me A Story) as Summer.
The fourth season kept up the series’ tradition of big name guest stars, including” Golden Globe and Emmy nominee Sam Neill (Jurassic Park), two-time Golden Globe winner Kathleen Turner (Romancing the Stone), Oscar winner Taika Waititi (Jojo Rabbit), Golden Globe and Emmy winner Jeffrey Wright (Westworld), Emmy winner Pamela Adlon (Better Things), two-time Emmy winner Justin Theroux (The Leftovers), Emmy nominee Christopher Meloni (Happy), Oscar winner Susan Sarandon (Thelma & Louise), two-time Golden Globe winner Paul Giamatti (Billions), Emmy nominee Matthew Broderick (Daybreak) and Elon Musk.
