What does Rick C-137 have planned for the future? Here’s everything you need to know about the Rick and Morty show’s sixth season
There are no spoilers in this narrative.
In May 2018, Time Warner Broadcasting and Adult Swim commissioned another 70 Rick and Morty episodes. Season four’s ten episodes, as well as Season five’s ten episodes, are included in that sequence. We’re looking at at least 50 more episodes in the series starting with Season 6. For the near future, 10-episode seasons seem reasonable to expect, thus this existing order might cover everything through Season 10.
That would be a lengthy way of stating that Rick and Morty season six has been guaranteed for a long time, and it appears that production on that chapter is nearly complete. However, now that the show’s writers are free to make new releases without having to queue for a revival, Rick and Morty’s release schedule appears to be settling towards a more steady rhythm.
What will take place next?
No storyline elements for Season 6 have been published as of yet, the final two episodes of Season 5 introduced some very major narrative events that could irrevocably affect the program moving forward. Rick and Morty tends to focus more on narrative as the season has progressed, but the show hasn’t ever relied as heavily on serialized storytelling as it did at the end of the season.
When will Season 6 premiere?
The network revealed a 2022 launch at Rick and Morty’s exclusive panel during the Adult Swim Festival 2021 in November (via ScreenRant). That’s as much as we got to a certain date, although season six may debut a year after season five ended, in the summertime of 2022— But don’t put all your eggs in one basket just yet.
If Adult Swim decides to split it into two segments, it may happen more quickly. Season 5 went practically nonstop until the two-part season finale, whereas Season 4 was cut neatly in half with almost six months between episodes.
Where is the latest season’s trailer?
There aren’t any right now, and we shouldn’t expect one for a long time.
With a specific response from Morty and Rick, Adult Swim announced a fall 2019 release timeframe for Season 4 in May 2019. Then, in October 2019, the official trailer released. The trailer for the second half of Season 4 was released on April 1, 2020, mere days before episodes continued.
A complete trailer’s release date will be determined by when the sixth season premieres, however they’re normally released between one and three months before the season premiere. That indicates a Season 6 teaser will most likely be released on or around April 1, 2022. Should at the least, it will be launched within the first half of 2022.
Rick and Morty’s recurring cast and writers
It is indeed difficult to imagine the Rick and Morty show without Rick and Morty, regardless which reality we’re in.
Justin Roiland will almost certainly repeat his two starring roles in Season 6, but who will he be joined by? Beth, Jerry, and Summer Smith will almost certainly be played by Sarah Chalke, Chris Parnell, and Spencer Grammer, respectively. Given their storylines throughout Season 5, there are a number of additional recurring characters who might make interesting additions.
— Kari Wahlgren, Dan Harmon, Darren Criss, Christina Ricci, and Keith David as the President of the United States are among the guest stars that could return in season 6.
Dan Harmon took to Instagram in May 2020 that Alex Rubens, a Community alum, has joined the Rick and Morty writing staff for Season 6. Then, in February 2021, Rubens used Twitter to highlight several of his fellow writers. As a result, we’ve already had a good look at Alex Rubens, Albro Lundy IV, Grace Freud, James Siciliano, Rob Schrab, Alex Song-Xia, Heather Campbell, Cody Ziglar, and Nick Rutherford, the Season 6 writers.
There are a lot of bubbles to pop eventually, so stay tuned for Rick and Morty season six updates on Sci-fi Scoop!
