Adult Swim will now have the exclusive rights to broadcast the series here.
Even if it became known in France and in the rest of the world thanks to Netflix, Rick and morty is not an original creation of the American platform. It is a series produced and broadcast by Adult Swim, across the Atlantic.
However, the American channel specializing in animated content for adults officially arrived on our airways in 2019. In fact, there was no longer any reason for it to outsource broadcasting to Netflix. If the two networks shared the joint broadcast of season 4 (simultaneously with the US for Adult Swim and with a few months delay for Netflix), this will no longer be the case with season 5.
In a scathing message that sticks its tongue out to its competitor, Adult Swim announces that it will now be the only one to offer this season 5 of Rick and morty, which was launched this Monday, June 21 in the USA and therefore simultaneously in France.
