Very few shows actually lend themselves to multiple seasons like Rick and Morty which is much like Doctor Who and it can take absolutely anywhere including the other dimensions which feature alternate versions of the characters.
Luckily, in this dimension, Rick and Morty have many reasons still to come even after adult swim ordered more episodes back in 2018. twenty of those episodes are already aired into season six and beyond. this ensures another instalment of inter-dimensional antics and the odd emotional gut punch.
So, now it’s time to grab your plumbers and portal gun and here’s everything you need to know about Rick and Morty season six.
Rick and Morty season 6 release date
An optimistic release date for Rick and Morty season six is in summer 2022. Rick and Morty had a very famously erratic release schedule with a two-year-long gap both before and after the long-awaited third season.
However, after following the third season creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland inking the historic seventy-episode deal with Adult Swim. Roiland also promised that no more big gaps between seasons.
Season five arrived around a year after the fourth instalment and in July 2020 Harmon also confirmed that writing had already begun on season six and by August 2021 the writer Cody Ziglar also hinted in a twee about the writer’s room had wrapped on season seven.
With the scripts are written and the show now which is producing episodes on a rolling basis, Rick and Morty may move to a more regular annual schedule which would also place the season six premiere around summer 2022.
How many episodes are in Rick and Morty season 6?
Given that both seasons four and five were made up of at least 10 episodes, we also assume that season six will also adopt a nice and even episode count of ten adventures. this would also line up very nicely with the show’s seventh episode order with almost ten episodes a season which brings us all the way up to season ten.
But, Harmon previously also expressed a desire for seasons to be made up of more than ten episodes. So now it remains to be seen if the seventh instalment will increase the episode count for the first time since season one’s eleven episodes.
Rick and Morty season 6 cast
One thing we can pretty much confirm regarding the cast of Rick and Morty is that Justin Roiland voices half the characters which include the duo, Rick Sanchez and Morty Smith. We also fully expect that the fellow main voice cast of the Smith family to return, including Chris Parnell as Morty’s dad Jerry, Summer and Sarah Chalke as mum Beth and clone counterpart Space Beth also.
Season six will also likely feature another batch of impressive celebrity guest stars and we also expect news on that front near the series release date.
Rick and Morty season 6 trailer
We cannot expect a trailer for season six of the series until the first half of 2022. However, we recently saw an early animatic for the season five premiere a good year before the episode was debuted. So now we may also see an unfinished scene before the end of 2021.
