In the latest season of Rick and Morty, the titular mad scientist dropped a major bombshell by revealing he had cloned his daughter, Beth. When the fifth season hits Adult Swim and Netflix, viewers have speculated if Beth and her husband Jerry could make yet another addition to the dysfunctional Smith family.
Episode ten, Star Mort: Rickturn of the Jerri, left fans in awe by tying up some major loose ends as well as delivering a major twist about Beth Smith (played by Sarah Chalke).
While Rick and his grandson Morty (both played by Justin Roiland) defeated the Galactic Federation, Beth was forced to come to terms with the fact she may or may not be a clone.
60 more episodes have been ordered by the network, and co-creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon are already busy at work penning the new scripts.
Although the new chapters will roll out over an unspecified number of seasons, it’s assumed the series will continue its ten episode trend.

Although Beth and her husband Jerry (Chris Parnell) hit a rough patch in season three, the couple worked through their differences and got back together for season four.
If this fan is correct, the dysfunctional Smith family could have a completely different dynamic with the arrival of a new baby in season five.
It would also give Beth a chance to get back in touch with reality after the disastrous events of the season four finale.
However, after Rick’s troubled history with Morty and Summer, the new baby could be at risk of some major sci-fi mishaps.
Theories have also suggested Rick will close the door on the Smith family and embark on solo adventures in season five so as not to put his daughter in any more risk.
If another child is indeed on the way, it may be wise for Rick to hop over to a different dimension before the baby is caught in his self-destructive crosshairs.
No release date has been confirmed for season five, although another delay of two years is expected following production being stalled by the coronavirus.
Rick and Morty Season 4 Part 1 is available to stream on Netflix.
