Video screenshot by Gael Fashingbauer Cooper/CNET Rick and Morty’s fifth season already looks like it will have near-death antics and maybe a real shot at love for Morty. The first footage from Rick and Morty’s fifth season showcasing this along with other details from show co-creator Dan Harmon debuted Friday as part of Adult Swim’s event held on Twitch.

While technically not part of Comic-Con@Home, the panel was timed up with the ongoing virtual replacement to San Diego Comic Con 2020.
The new video footage features Morty carrying a wounded Rick (whose injuries we do not yet know), an escape through a portal, a possible crash landing, and Morty confessing his feelings to his crush Jessica.
Watch to the end of the clip to see Rick’s nemesis — an underwater Aquaman kind of character who is obsessed with people knowing his name.
On another note, Harmon also mentioned that for the first time in the show’s history, the new season is ahead of schedule.

Season 4 ended in May, however the season 5 premiere date of Rick and Morty has yet to be announced.
