Rick and Morty Season 5 Trailer

The new trailer offers a lot of new footage and clues on what to look forward to in the fifth season. It opens with the entire family in a strange forest where Rick comments that it's too quiet. As usual, we get to see some cool new aliens and even a "strange horny ocean man" who happens to be on the Smiths' lawn.

We also get a glimpse of an episode where Rick and Morty are "Blades", as in the Marvel comic book vampire hunter. That looks like an awesome episode to look forward to but it's unclear if it will be featured in Season 5.
