Adult Swim teasing midnight reveal, with Rick and Morty season looming

Grownup Swim is teasing a secret YouTube video that will premiere on April 1 at midnight, and if history is any sign, it might be Rick and Morty associated.

The network sent e-mails that connect to a YouTube video that’s presently set to personal, however it’s expected to go live at midnight. While there’s no other way to understand what this video may be, Grownup Swim has actually premiered an episode of Rick and Morty as an April Fool’s Day surprise in the past, and with a brand-new season coming quickly, it appears like a possibility.

Naturally, anybody who’s invested a long time on the web understands that April Fools Day is well-known for web tricks — a few of which wind up being quite inadequately developed. Nevertheless, Grownups Swim has actually been well-known for its April 1 gags dating all the method back to 2004.

However what’s most likely most fascinating to Rick and Morty fans is that in 2017, ahead of the program’s 3rd season, Grownup Swim debuted the season’s very first episode as an unique surprise and continued to air it up until completion of the day. Throughout the day, the surprise episode was seen by over 11 million individuals, according to Grownup Swim. The remainder of the season then aired 4 months later on beginning on July 30.

With that in mind, it’s definitely not out of the concern that Grownup Swim might do the very same thing this year with the season 5 best. Thanks to the trailer that was dropped on Tuesday, we understand that season 5 is set to debut on June 20 — offering this quite comparable timing to 2017’s surprise release. It wouldn’t be much of a stretch for Grownup Swim to simply drop one episode early to get fans thrilled.

Sadly, there’s no assurance that this is really associated with Rick and Morty at all. Because 2017, just 2 of the network’s April Fool’s Day jokes have actually been associated with Rick and Morty.

When Polygon connected, Animation Network decreased to talk about just what the Grownup Swim YouTube link was for. So this is your reasonable caution, if you tune into the video, it might be Rick and Morty, or it might be something completely various. In case you do wish to provide it a shot here’s the YouTube link once again … no pledges.
