Being a fan of Rick and Morty at this moment is exciting. In addition to an anime spin-off, Rick and Morty season 6 is soon around the corner.
We’ve done some research and found some quotes that would suggest that the wait for Rick and Morty to return should almost be over, but there has been practically radio silence (in an official capacity, at least) over the upcoming Rick and Morty season and any probable release date.
Rick and Morty Season 6 Release Date: When Will It Arrive?
It appears like the release timetable for Rick and Morty could settle into a more predictable pattern now that the makers are free to create new episodes without having to wait for renewal.
The broadcaster announced a 2022 premiere at Rick and Morty’s exclusive panel at the Adult Swim Festival 2021 in November (via ScreenRant). That was the closest we got to a certain date, although season six might conceivably debut in the summer of 2022, one year after season five concluded.
With the announcement (via ComicBook) that we’ll get our first peek at season six during the in-person event, 2022’s Adult Swim Block Party offers even more crucial information. Fear not if you are unable to get to Philadelphia between August 5 and 7! Although the event will be a webcast on YouTube, it’s uncertain if the video will be available online throughout the weekend.
Therefore, avoid placing all of your bets on a summer release, especially because the first footage won’t be available until August. Adult Swim may shock us with a Christmas release or perhaps change the schedule so that episodes come out less frequently. To give his team more breathing room, co-creator Justin Roiland originally suggested showing each chapter one month apart.
Who’s to say Rick and Morty won’t give it a shot one day, or at the very least, air some specials ahead of the holidays? We would treat ourselves to a Pickle Rick on Valentine’s Day.
Rick and Morty Season 6 Cast: Who’s Coming Back?
Rick and Morty simply wouldn’t function without Rick and Morty, no matter what dimension we could be in. That means that in season 6, Justin Roiland will unavoidably return to play the two principal roles, but who will join him?
As Jerry, Beth, and Summer Smith, respectively, Chris Parnell, Sarah Chalke, and Spencer Grammer are all but guaranteed to return. Chalke will probably continue to portray both Beth and Space Beth, who is possibly her clone.
Other guest actors who could reappear in season 6 include:
• Kari Wahlgren as Jessica.
• Keith David as the President of the United States.
• Dan Harmon as Birdperson/Phoenixperson and also Mr. Nimbus.
• Alison Brie as Planetina.
• Christina Ricci as Princess Poñeta, the princess of the CHUD.
• Darren Criss as Bruce Cutback

After season five, Mr. Poopybutthole also reappeared, so we anticipate Justin Roiland will likely play this character again at some point in the future, even if it’s just to provide another annual update on his love life.
Rick and Morty Season 6 Plot: What Will It Be About?
We hope that future stories will be more like “Mortyplicity” and less like “Rickdependence Spray,” which is still arguably the most stupid Rick and Morty episode to date, even though there are currently no plot details for season six available.
There was a hint in the season five finale that things might go in this manner. At the end of each season, Rick and Morty tend to push the canon further, but at no other point in its history has this show leaned so heavily on serialised storytelling.
In addition to bringing Evil Morty back, “Rickmurai Jack” also exposed Rick’s true past, effectively confirming that his wife and daughter were truly murdered by another Rick. This was initially hinted at in a season three flashback, however
This is not only what the audience wants, but it also portends well for the future of Rick and Morty. Even though this show thrives on humour and escape, if you don’t care about the characters, outrageous antics and shady plot twists may not always be enough to keep you entertained. Just let’s hope that season six manages to strike a balance between these revolutionary character beats and the show’s innate absurdity going ahead.
How about more of Jessica and Space Beth, two intriguing characters that were largely ignored throughout season five, while we’re talking about what we hope to see next? Additionally, Evil Morty might make an appearance, perhaps revealing what lurks beyond the Central Finite Curve.
We also know that Adult Swim will shortly air a brand-new Vindicators spin-off. Supernova, Vance Maximus, Alan Rails, Crocubot, and Noob Noob, among other superheroes, are likely to take names and kick asses throughout the cosmos. It will most likely take place before the season three episode in which this squad perished.
Will there be any crossover between this short series and Rick and Morty season six? Although it will be placed in canon, there is a chance that crossovers won’t occur, unlike with anime spin-offs.
To Inverse, Spencer Grammer gave some tantalizing hints about impending storylines.
“Coming up are some intriguing episodes where you get to know the family members on a deeper level. This season featured a lot of episodes that focused on families, which I always find to be extremely interesting. Maybe while Rick is away spending time with Jerry. Observing Beth, Morty, and Summer live separate lives from Rick is interesting.”
It’s a strange equilibrium, Harmon remarked (via Decider). “It’s strange to even in live-action TV because… Particularly in animation, where characters are figurative, for example, 14 years old forever, you don’t want your characters to develop and alter to the extent that they cease to be the characters that they were. Additionally, you don’t want to convey the idea that they are unchangeable.”
“It’s a strange, entertaining philosophical idea that Morty isn’t changing as he gets older. But because he has been a part of the programme for so long, Morty is evolving. When we offer narrative ideas that involve Morty becoming a little more jaded or his relationship with Rick deteriorating, we certainly bring it up. Time will tell if that was merely a bad decision and whether Morty should just be put in amber to freeze.”
And you can anticipate the same level of depth.
Harmon admitted that she “tends to add a bunch of jokes last” and to “remember that it’s comedy.”
“I’m initially thinking to myself, “Why is this a story? Why is it significant to one of these personalities, and why? What is happening here? Many talks sound nothing like what you might anticipate in a comedy room because you’re looking for a story and attempting to make it personal.”
But the crucial query is: Will season 7 be the final one?
“Way too soon to make a prediction. You’ll always think this thing could last 20, 30, or more seasons. Characters in our show don’t truly age; the Simpsons would be proud. We have a lot of options to keep this train moving “Roiland remarked (via CheatSheet).
Harmon, though, was a little more accepting of the idea of it concluding even though he provided a comparable time frame.
“Yes, I’ll finish it! However, I’m not sure if that would be on 70. Even if you told me that this thing lasts for 20 years, I wouldn’t be at least astonished. I absolutely would not object to that. Let’s do it if it still feels right “Harmon remarked.
“Yes, unless people suddenly stop caring. If we produce something and no one watches it…” said Roiland.
“We’re content. There are many stories we want to tell and many things to do, but it’s wonderful. Such job security is not common in this community.”
