So far, Rick and Morty season 6 has seen Summer battle alien terrorists, Beth embark on a passionate love affair – with herself – and the Smiths enslaved by their Night selves. Now there’s another helping of sci-fi yuks as Rick and Jerry team up to outwit fate. Just read below to find out how to watch Rick and Morty season 6 episode 5 online now, and totally FREE.
*Warning – contains season 6 episode 4 spoilers*
Last week’s “Night Family” provided autumn chills as the Smiths exploited a device called the Somnambuliser that put their unconscious selves to work, leaving them with all their boring daytime chores – like exercising and washing the dishes.
Next up from series creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland is “Final DeSmithination”, in which a restaurant fortune cookie predicts a dire fate for Rick’s son-in-law Jerry. Expect a sci-fi comedy take on the supernatural slasher movie Final Destination – and some Sailor Moon shoutouts for good measure.
So, keep reading as we explain how to watch Rick and Morty season 6 episode 5 online, from anywhere in the world.
- Need to catch up? Here's how to watch every season of Rick and Morty
How to watch Rick and Morty season 6 episode 5 FREE
If you're in the UK, then catching new episodes of season 6 will be an absolute breeze. Episode 5 will air in the UK on Monday, October 3, and it's absolutely free thanks to E4.
This means Rick and Morty season 6 will be free to stream on-demand too (for those with a valid TV license) on the channel's All 4 service - just make sure you have a valid TV license. Away from home?
Rick and Morty episodes are first aired at the same time as in the US. So, while that's 11pm ET, it's a slightly less convenient 4am BST when they land in the UK. Thankfully episodes will be available to watch at your convenience on-demand on All4 after they've been broadcast.
If you’d rather catch it again on TV, episodes will also be shown every Sunday at 10pm BST.
How to watch Rick and Morty online from outside your country
Not at home when new episodes of Rick and Morty air? If you're going to be away, you’ll find the content you’re trying to watch geo-blocked where you are.
