This article will explain how you can watch Rick and Morty season 5 on-demand even if you don’t have cable. I’ll also explain and even how to watch every episode from past seasons of Rick and Morty.
Where to Watch Rick and Morty Season 5: All ten episodes from season 5 of Rick and Morty are available on-demand with a subscription to Hulu Live TV (Free Trial).
Where To Watch Season 1 – 4 of Rick and Morty: Past Seasons of Rick and Morty are available on the Hulu Streaming Library (30-day free trial). This is included with Hulu Live TV, but if purchased on its own, it will not include seasons 5. The only way to watch Season 5 is with a service that provides Adult Swim like Hulu Live TV.

Where To Watch Rick and Morty Season 5
Below are your options to watch the latest episodes of Rick and Morty if you don’t have cable. Hulu Live TV is our top recommendation since they also will have all of season 1 through season 4 on-demand.
Hulu Live TV
Hulu Live TV is your best option for Rick and Morty Season 5. They have Adult Swim in their channel lineup so that you can watch new episodes as Adult Swim’s on-demand offering is available through Hulu Live TV. The Live TV service is $69.99/month after a 1-week free trial. If you instead opt for the lower-priced Hulu streaming library starting at $6.99/month, you will only have access to seasons 1-4 on-demand. However, the Hulu Streaming Library is included with Hulu Live TV. Therefore a subscription to Hulu Live TV will provide access to every Rick and Morty Episode, including new season 5 episodes.
A subscription to Hulu Live TV includes the following features:
- over 60 channels
- 50 hours of cloud DVR storage (upgradeable)
- stream to two streams at the same time, with an upgrade option for unlimited streams.
- The Hulu on-demand streaming library
- Hulu is available on Android, iOS, Xbox One, 4th Gen Apple TV, Chromecast, Roku, and Amazon Fire TV and stick.

Other Ways To Watch Season 5
Other services like have Adult Swim in their lineup are DIRECTV STREAM, Sling TV, and YouTube TV. However, aside from Hulu Live TV, DIRECTV STREAM is the only service that will definitely have season 5 available on-demand.
DIRECTV STREAM offers Adult Swim channel in their “Entertainment” channel plan for a price of $69.99 per month with other plans available. This will provide access to Season 5 episodes of Rick and Morty, and the streaming service is an accepted TV provider to unlock the Adult Swim app. The service supports Apple TV, iOS, Android, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, and most modern web browsers. There is no contract when signing up for their free trial. (see review)
Watch Rick and Morty on The Adult Swim App
To stream Adult Swim through the Adult Swim app, you have to enter your TV provider credentials. Most think you need a cable provider login to utilize the Adult Swim app, but that isn’t the case. Currently, Hulu Live TV and DIRECTV STREAM accounts will work to unlock the Adult Swim app.
You can even download the Adult Swim app on your Roku, Apple TV, or Amazon Fire TV and watch on your television using your Hulu Live TV or DIRECTV STREAM credentials. There are detailed instructions in the next section on installing and activating the Adult Swim Go app on your streaming device.
How To Watch on Your Device
For our example, let’s assume we have a Hulu Live TV subscription and a Roku. We can follow the steps below to get the Adult Swim app working on our device. While the steps below use Hulu Live TV and Roku to watch Adult Swim, most streaming services and devices will have the same process.
- Get a free trial to Hulu Live TV
- Go to the channel store or app store on your device. On Roku, it’s called the “Channel Store.”
- Search for Adult Swim Channel
- Add the Adult Swim app to your device and then open it.
- Your Roku device will then show you an activation code and a URL.
- Using a computer or mobile web browser, you go to the URL.

Stream Seasons 1 Through 4 of Rick and Morty
Right now, there are two places you can watch every single episode of the first four seasons of Rick and Morty, Hulu On-demand, and HBO Max.
Rick and Morty on Hulu
Season 1 through Season 4 of Rick and Morty is available for you to stream on Hulu’s Streamin Library. The best part is Hulu offers a 30-day free trial to their streaming library. That’s plenty of time to watch the entire run of Rick and Morty free! After the 30-day trial, Hulu On-Demand costs $6.99 with ads and $12.99 to stream ad-free. You can watch Hulu on Demand on Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, iOS, Android, and more. For access to Season 5, you will need Hulu’s Live TV service starting at $69.99/month after a 1-week free trial. See our full review of Hulu for more details on this streaming service. Eventually, season 5 will movie over to Hulu’s more affordable streaming library. Based on the current on-demand release schedules, the date should be the first week of February 2022
Rick and Morty on HBO Max
HBO Max also has season 1 through season 4 of Rick and Morty available for streaming. Season 5 should be available in early 2022. HBO Max doesn’t only have HBO, but content from WarnerMedia and other sources. Content on HBO Max includes:
- A selection of acquired series and movies (Rick and Morty and South Park are notable examples)
- All of HBO
- An exclusive collection of new HBO Max Originals
- Select favorites from the WarnerMedia brands Warner Bros., New Line Cinema, DC, CNN, the Turner library, Crunchyroll, Rooster Teeth, Looney Tunes, and more
- A selection of acquired series and movies (South Park being a notable example)
A subscription to HBO-Max costs $14.99 per month for their ad-free plan and $9.99 per month for their ad-supported service (meaning a few commercials with every episode). You can sign up here. HBO Max is supported on Android, iOS, Apple TV, Chromecast, Playstation, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, and more.
Is There Going To Be A Season 6 of Rick and Morty
Yes! Not only is there a season 6 of Rick and Morty, but it’s been confirmed to be fully written. Furthermore, writing on Season 7 has already begun. Adult Swim gave Rick and Morty a 70 episode renewal in 2018. This deal was completed before season 4, so there are at least 50 Rick and Morty episodes in our future after season 5. If the show sticks to its typical ten episodes per season format, we’ll have at least ten seasons of Rick and Morty to look forward to. As for a release date for season 6, nothing has officially been announced, but the show’s creators have hinted it will not be a long wait between seasons 5 and 6. My guess is we are looking at a summer or fall 2022 release date for Rick and Morty Season 6.
