Rick and Morty Season 6 Premiere Date and Release Information You Need to Know!
This animated series chronicles the antics of drunken scientist Rick Sanchez and his nephew Morty Smith, who frequently find themselves in various realities where they encounter different versions of the same individuals.
While they wait for season 6, Rick and Morty fans can rejoice in the knowledge that Adult Swim has ordered 70 (!) more episodes of the programme, which as the show is still working its way through.
If you’re a fan of interstellar shenanigans, schwifty dancing movements, and the occasional emotional gut-punch then this order is for you.
However, fans were left reeling from the emotional two-part finale, Forgetting Sarick Mortshall and Rickmurai Jack, in which Rick and Morty broke up before Evil Morty returned to breach Rick’s protective bubble, both metaphorically and physically, in the season 5 finale.
Even though Rick and Morty’s relationship isn’t always harmonious, they both rely on one another.
Rick and Morty’s official Instagram account has also released a new post, which contains a snippet of a moment from season 5’s premiere in which Morty is falling back to Earth after another disastrous journey.
A simple “yes” in the caption answers the question of whether or not Season 6 will be released, however the post makes a sly omission of disclosing an air date.
Season 6 of Rick and Morty Will Have How Many Episodes?
We may expect that season 6 will follow in the footsteps of seasons 4 and 5 by having a total of 10 episodes. Season 5 may be split into two block of five episodes each, similar to how Season 4 was presented to the public.
With the show’s 70-episode order, 10 episodes per season would lead us all the way up to season 10, bringing us to season 10.
Seasons of more than 10 episodes are Harmon’s preference, therefore it remained to be seen if the seventh episode marks the first time this has happened since season 1’s 11 episodes.
In the Season 6 Cast of Rick and Morty
One thing we know for sure is that Rick Sanchez and Morty Smith, the show’s eponymous duo, will be voiced by co-creator Justin Roiland.
The Smith family’s other key voice actors, including Chris Parnell as Morty’s father Jerry, Spencer Grammer as his sister Summer, and Sarah Chalke as his mother Beth, as well as Beth’s clone Space Beth, are all expected to reprise their roles.
Kari Wahlgren’s Jessica, Keith David’s president, and Harmon’s Birdperson are all expected to return to Rick and Morty, which boasts a slew of famous recurring characters of its own.
A new group of high-profile guest performers is expected for season 6, so stay tuned for updates closer to the release date.
Season 6 Storyline for Rick and Morty
Season 6 spoilers and storey details are still a long way off, and the show’s episodic format makes it tough to guess what will happen next.
Some plot lines, such as the Birdperson story that has been running since the beginning of season one, remain unanswered despite this show’s apparent disregard for continuity. When Rick resurrected Birdperson in season 5, he revealed he had a hidden daughter, who is likely to make an appearance at some point in the future.
Evil Morty was reintroduced in season 5’s two-part conclusion, which had been gone since season 3. Morty was allowed to travel to different parts of the multiverse after he breached the Central Finite Curve.
The series finale ended with Evil Morty revealing a new realm before escaping Rick through a yellow portal, prompting fans to wonder if they will ever see him again in the series. Season 6 promises new worlds to be discovered by the show’s fans.
Also gaining a spin-off is The Vindicators, which could lead to a possible crossover in season 6 or beyond.
Season 6 of Rick and Morty Is Premiere in the Summer of 2022
There were two two-year gaps between the publication of Rick and Morty’s third season and the release of the second season.
Because they can plan their time around the show’s production, producers Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland signed a landmark 70-episode deal with Adult Swim and pledged no more significant gaps between seasons.
A year after the release of season 4, Harmon revealed that production on season 6 had already begun, and in August of 2021, writer Cody Ziglar intimated in a tweet that work on season 7 had come to an end.
Rick and Morty could transition to a yearly schedule now that the scripts are written and the programme is currently creating episodes on a rolling basis, putting the season 6 debut in the summer of 2022.
Season 3 premiered on April Fool’s Day with no warning, and Roiland has previously mentioned his intention to release episodes on a monthly basis to lessen the gaps between seasons. However, this is Rick & Morty, so don’t count out an experimental release approach.
