After an extended wait, fans of deranged cartoon Rick and Morty have finally been rewarded with the show releasing a new batch of episodes this May. Read on and we’ll tell you how to watch Rick and Morty season 4 online – including where you can stream all of part 2 anywhere for free, starting with episode 6,
Rick and Morty season 4, part 2 release date
Rick and Morty season 4, part 2 kicked-off with episode 6, which aired on Sunday, May 3 at 11.30pm ET on Adult Swim – the nocturnal off-shoot of the Cartoon Network. It keeps the same slot over the coming weeks, which means you can watch it for free by taking advantage of Sling TV’s Happy Hour deal – no credit card required!
Having gone off-air at the end of 2019, the show has returned to help us get through what’s hopefully the final days of Covid-19 lockdown. The trailer promises us all the unpredictability and madcap adventures we’ve come to expect from the show, including manga-style superhero outfits, electrocutions, and light sabres. Perhaps the latter should have come as no surprise given Rick and Morty season 4, episode 6 ‘Never Ricking Morty’ was released on May 3, just 24 hours before Star Wars Day 2020.
Created by Dan Harmon (of Community fame) and Justin Roiland, the show originated from a short parody of Back to the Future and first aired back in 2013. Since then, it graduated from its original cult status and grown to a show that counts the likes of Taika Waititi, Elon Musk and Liam Cunningham as some of its guest stars.
Not bad going for a drunken mad scientist and his naive 14-year-old grandson, really? For anyone totally new to the show, those are the titular characters of Rick and Morty, respectively.
Will the wait have been worth it? We reckon so – read on and discover how to watch Rick and Morty season 4 and stream every new part 2 episode for free no matter where you are in the world.

Netflix has the exclusive streaming rights to Rick and Morty in Australia, which is a mixed blessing if you’re a fan of the show.
The good news is that existing subscribers to the great value streaming platform will get to watch new Rick and Morty season 4 episodes when they’re released, as well as be able to access older seasons 3 on-demand.
The bad news is that judging by the first-half of season 4, Netflix Australia lags a fair bit behind Adult Swim in terms of adding the new episodes to its line-up – in the case of season 4, the first give episodes dropped on Netflix Australia on December 22, 2019, after the first-half of the season had finished airing in the US.
