Rick and Morty Season 4 is currently rolling out its last few episodes so, naturally, fans are already asking about the fifth season. The series has a really passionate fanbase so they were always going to bug people about more content, for better or worse. We were expecting a major update from Dan Harmon or the show's co-creator and main voice actor Justin Roiland but it looks like our first bit of news about Rick and Morty Season 5 is coming from Chris Parnell, who voices Jerry Smith.

Yup, everyone's favorite punching bag gave us a minor update on this show. What they say is true, 2020 is the worst year ever.

All kidding aside, Parnell did give us some significant updates in regards to the show's fifth season (via IGN). Parnell revealed that most of the new season has been written and some storyboards have been done as well but it looks like none of the voice actors have managed to record their lines. Thanks, COVID-19.

"We have not started recording Season 5, but I know they have, certainly, episodes written and have it boarded to a certain extent. But I don't know when we'll start recording."
"I've upgraded my home setup - even though it doesn't look like it - so I can actually record proper sessions from home. You know, as long as the studio does some safety protocols and stuff like that, it's an easy situation to go into a booth and record and not have to encounter anybody."

Hopefully, recording can start soon so that Rick and Morty Season 5 can start rolling. We doubt that the show will be coming out anytime soon since it takes forever to get a new season from these creators. Add how Coronavirus is making everyone stay at home and you have a pretty lengthy delay for this beloved show.

Rick and Morty Season 4 is steadily releasing its final few episodes on Adult Swim.
