It's almost time for the Rick and Morty Season 5 finale and we just got another awesome teaser featuring Christopher Lloyd and Jaeden Martell. This time, the brief yet amazing live-action promo pay tribute to the one and only Pickle Rick.

The new teaser opens with Morty (Martell) scolding "Pickle Rick" for turning himself into a vegetable again. "You did it again, didn't you learn anything from last time?" the frustrated Morty demands of the technical fruit.

That's when the real Rick (Lloyd) steps in, grabs the pickle, and takes a huge bite. As Morty tries to apologize for his mistake, Rick declares, "Are you kidding me? NEVER!"

It's an awesome reference to the epic Rick and Morty Season 3 episode where the mad scientist turned himself into a pickle just to avoid family therapy. There have also been speculations that Pickle Rick will be back in the current season so the reference is even more exciting for fans.

Fans were previously freaked out when the first promo featuring Lloyd and Martell was released. The fan reaction led to the teaser going viral while the Back to the Future star's name trended in several regions on Twitter. Needless to say, it's the best way to hype up the Rick and Morty Season 5 finale.

The last two episodes of Rick and Morty Season 5 are titled Forgetting Sarick Mortshall and Rickmurai Jack. They will serve as the two parts of the highly anticipated finale, which is set to air on Adult Swim on September 5, 2021.
