For starters, expect a whole lot of intergalactic adventures. Only this time, Morty won't be the only one joining Rick across the galaxy. That's right, the entire Smith family will also be getting in on the action during the fifth season. In other words? There will probably be lots of tears shed (yes, talking about you, Jerry).

"We get more family adventures altogether, and the animation is off the hook," Sarah Chalke (a.k.a Beth Smith) teased of the upcoming season. "It takes all things Rick and Morty up a notch to the next level." Just when we thought the stakes couldn't get any higher. But Smith family aside for a second, we'll also be meeting lots of new faces.

You know, like Mr. Nimbus - a.k.a the "horny ocean man," whom, well... we'll let you interpret however you'd like. As a matter of fact, why don't you take a look at the trailer below and be the judge on that one? But don't say we didn't warn ya.

As for when we'll be tagging along on the boozed-up, slightly disastrous adventures across the universe? A whole lot sooner than some may have thought. Yes, really. The long-awaited fifth season is set to hit our screens on Sunday, June 20. And we'd be lying if we said we haven't already set our calendars.

Safe to say, Rick and Morty's upcoming season will be like nothing we've ever seen before. "More insane adventures. More amazing animation. Awesome writing," Chris Parnell (a.k.a the voice of Jerry Smith) hinted. Might we watch Mr. Smith finally put his grown-up pants on? Let's be real, probably not.

Either way, we're in for a real treat. Stay tuned (and last but not least, Wubba Lubba Dub-Dub!)
