Rick and Morty Season 6 | Release Date Speculation, Cast Updates, News

We can’t help but scream “Wubba lubba dub dub” in anticipation of the next season of “Rick and Morty.”

There were all the zany cosmic adventures that fans have come to expect from the show in the most recent season. This was the first time we saw Rick’s archenemy, Mr. Nimbus, face-to-face. Gluttony and corruption ruined the Smiths’ chance to manage a massive Voltron-style robot. Morty also discovered a crucial life lesson: never utilise your parents’ work equipment for your own gain.

Season 5 ended on a cliffhanger, so things are only going to get crazier for the Smiths going forward. After receiving a record-breaking order of 70 episodes, it’s only natural that the programme would push the boundaries of what’s possible in an animated sitcom. There are still 50 episodes left to be filled in that renewal, so there will be plenty more mayhem. For “Rick and Morty” Season 6, here is what we know so far.

Rick and Morty season 6 release date: When will it arrive?

It appears like Rick and Morty’s release schedule will be more consistent now that the show’s creators are free to produce new episodes without having to wait for renewal.

A 2022 launch date for Rick and Morty was established at the Adult Swim Festival 2021 in November (via ScreenRant). That’s the closest we got to a specific release date, although season six may come out a year after season five ended, which would put it in the summer of 2022 or so.

You don’t want to put all your eggs in one basket just yet. Also, Adult Swim may surprise us with a release date that’s sooner than expected, or perhaps change the schedule so that episodes are published more frequently. For the sake of his crew, Justin Roiland previously suggested airing each episode one month apart.

They may test it out one day, or at the very least release some holiday-themed specials in advance. Who knows what will happen? As a special treat for Valentine’s Day, we’d indulge in a Pickle Rick.

Which characters can we expect to show up in Rick and Morty Season 6?

Season 6 of “Rick and Morty” will feature the usual suspects. We may expect more strange antics from Rick, Summer, Beth and Jerry in the future. Other recurrent characters’ storylines in Season 5 make them interesting candidates for inclusion.

In the inaugural episode of last season, Morty’s crush Jessica was shown for the first time. As the storey progressed, she changed from being a typical love interest to a time deity. Now that she’s watched ages pass before her eyes, she may no longer be satisfied with being the attractive girl at school. With her newfound position, it’s unclear if she received any particular skills, but we’d expect the programme to address this issue at some point.

Expect Evil Morty to make a reappearance in Season 5 as well. Season 3 was the last time he was seen, but in the Season 5 finale, he made an impressive comeback when he broke free of the central finite curve. Significant as it is, it’s unlikely that the show will ignore it. So one thing is for certain: Evil Morty will return.

What’s the plot of Rick and Morty Season 6?

For now, we can only hope that future episodes of Rick and Morty are more like “Mortyplicity” than “Rickdependence Spray,” which is still the worst episode of the show to date.

The season five finale undoubtedly hinted to this possibility. Season finales of Rick and Morty are known for pushing the boundaries of canon, but no episode of this show has ever done so in such an overtly serialised way as it did at the end of season five.

As well as returning Evil Morty, ‘Rickmurai Jack’ acknowledged that his wife and daughter had been killed by another Rick, and hence the existence of another Rick. Even if this was hinted to in a season-three flashback, it’s not unreasonable to expect the programme to start revealing more canon in the future.
