Creator confirms “Rick and Morty” season 5 plot
With the cliffhanger ending, co-creator Dan Harmon confirms that season 5 will explore the story of the clone Beth. Harmon stated:
“You know as much as Rick knows. I don’t want to keep secrets with the audience. She’s Schrodinger’s Beth right now. The fact she may or may not be a clone is actually the important thing. It’s the profound revelation about Rick’s commitment to non-commitment and how abusive that can be as a parent. That is the important thing here. We’re adding aunts to the family. We’re having fun looking at more options with space Beth.”
Season 5 reveals Morty’s new love interest
Apart from the Clone Betty storyline, Harmon also teases Morty’s new love interest to replace Jessica. Besides, the fifth installment will also reveal what will happen to Jessica and Morty’s relationship.
