Rick and Morty Showrunner Hypes Up Season 5 Finale, Claims It Will Give Fans 'Food Coma'

The Rick and Morty Season 5 finale is possibly one of the most highly anticipated events this year. After all, fans had to wait a really long time for the fifth season and again when the last two episodes were scheduled to air a full month after Episode 8.

However, Scott Marder says that all the waiting is going to be worth it. The animated show's executive producer is hyping up the Season 5 finale by claiming it's like a "Thanksgiving dinner" that will give fans a "food coma."

Marder was recently a guest on the Interdimensional RSS: The Unofficial Rick and Morty podcast where he spoke about the last two episodes of Rick and Morty Season 5. The current season's showrunner could barely contain his excitement about the two-part finale.

When asked what fans can expect in the Season 5 finale, Marder said, "It's absolutely gonna knock people over. They don't know what they've got coming. I mean I'm so excited." He then continued by comparing the episodes to a truly satisfying meal.

"People are gonna feel like it was a Thanksgiving meal and they need to unbuckle their pants with football. They're going to be so rewarded with what they're about to get. They'll be in the deepest food coma from this episode," Marder said.

It all sounds promising and we're hoping that Marder isn't joking about feeling rewarded after watching the finale. Needless to say, we're looking forward to the last two episodes of the fifth season this Sunday.

Marder isn't the only one hyping up the Rick and Morty Season 5 finale. Adult Swim recently dropped a jaw-dropping teaser featuring Christopher Lloyd as the live-action version of Rick Sanchez and Jaden Martell as Morty Smith. The short clip went viral and the Back to the Future star's name trended on social media all day on Friday.
