Rick and Morty have had 4 very successful seasons, and a 5th is on the way. Back in June, creator Dan Harmon said that writers have been working on seasons 5 over Zoom. With the cliffhangers in the season 4 finale, it looks like we may not have to wait too long before we get another season of the show. However, if you are uninitiated or just want to rewatch the show, there are plenty of ways to do so. You don’t even need cable.
You Can Stream Every Episode of Rick and Morty
Right now, there are two places you can watch every single episode of all four seasons of Rick and Morty, Hulu On-demand, and HBO Max.
Rick and Morty on Hulu
Every season of Rick and Morty is available for you to stream on Hulu’s Demand Library. That’s 41 episodes available for you to stream. The best part is Hulu offers a 30-day free trial. That’s plenty of time to watch the entire run of Rick and Morty free! After the 30-day trial, Hulu On-Demand cost $5.99 with ads and $11.99 to stream ad-free. You can watch Hulu on Demand on Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, iOS, Android, and more. See our full review of Hulu for more details on this streaming service.
There have been rumors that Rick and Morty are leaving Hulu for HBO Max. That is not the case. Adult Swim gave Rick and Morty a 70 episode renewal in 2018. Hulu’s deal was extended to cover those episodes, so Rick and Morty will be on Hulu for some time to come.
Rick and Morty on HBO Max
HBO Max also has all 41 episodes of Rick and Morty available for streaming. HBO Max doesn’t only air 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. You can sign up here. HBO Max is supported on Android, iOS, Apple TV, Chromecast, Playstation, and more. Unfortunately, HBO Max isn’t supported on Roku or Amazon Fire TV.
Other Ways to Stream Rick and Morty
Your best options to watch Rick and Morty are on Hulu and HBO Max. However, there are a few seasons available on Hoopla and Adult Swim.
Season 4 is on Adult Swim
You can watch all of season 4 through the Adult Swim app or on AdultSwim.com. Episodes 6-10 are available for free, but if you want to watch episodes 1-5, you will need to use a TV provider login. Unfortunately, Adult Swim does not accept credentials from streaming TV providers, so you will need a cable TV or Satellite provider that carries Adult Swim in their lineup to watch episodes 1-5 of season 4 through Adult Swim.
Season 1 is On Hoopla
Hoopla is a public library streaming service that offers free TV and movies to people with library cards in certain cities and towns. Currently, they have the entire 1st season of Rick and Morty available free. Hoopla is available to stream online or via an app for Apple and Android devices, Amazon Fire TV, Roku, and Chromecast—almost all the same devices as Kanopy. You just need an accepted library card to sign up.
About Rick And Morty
Ever watch the 1980s classic “Back to the Future” and thought to yourself, “if only this had a dollop of nihilism and much more talk of boobs?”
Cartoon Network’s Rick and Morty enjoys tremendous popularity in the Adult Swim line up. The animated series follows the raucous, often-sick but always-clever adventures of an anarchistic old scientist and his nervous 14-year old grandson.
Coming from the minds of Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon, creator of Community, the show was initially born from a parody of “Back to the Future.” Morty (as opposed to Marty) and Rick (like Doc Brown but with a potty mouth and more drool) visit different realities within the multiverse but always swing back to Morty’s more mundane home life.
“You have this nice home base setting with the family that’s very likable and appealing. From there, you launch into sci-fi stuff that can take you anywhere that they could have gone in Futurama.”
A pair that includes a brilliant/quirky character with a normal viewer stand-in is also a trope we’ve seen before, not just with the beloved time-traveling DeLorean but also in Sherlock Holmes, Doctor Who, and more. I’m sure Carl Jung would have something to say about this as a universal theme–an observation “Rick and Morty” viewers are bound to appreciate since the show is packed with nods to philosophy, psychology, and high-concept sci-fi. Plus, of course, there’s the gratuitous violence and, let’s face it, some pretty explicit misogyny–or at least unbalanced male gaze. Nerdy straight men may have just found their nirvana.
That said, there are enough fresh concepts to keep this feminist sci-fi fan intrigued. Subverting the trope of adventuring do-gooders is done fairly expertly on the show, shedding some insight on pop culture and who our culture celebrates. The show recently added more women to the writer’s room, as well, so hopefully, Rick and Morty will chart a crass, clever course that appeals to everyone.
