This is not the first time that the production team mentioned about Rick’s daughter becoming the focus in the upcoming season. In an earlier interview, Harmon teased about Beth’s clone and the fact her family could be confused as Space Beth is likely staying on Earth.

"I don't want to keep secrets with the audience,” Comic Book quoted Harmon as saying during the PaleyFest NY. “She's Schrodinger's Beth right now and the fact she may or may not be a clone is actually the important thing.”

The show creator went on to reveal that since Beth’s clone has landed on Earth, they will be adding new members to the family. He mentioned a few aunts coming in “Rick and Morty” season 5.
