When will Rick and Morty Season 6 release? The fifth season hasn’t even concluded yet and this question has already started bothering the viewers. Rick and Morty is a science-fiction adult anime series that streams on Adult Swim. So, is the show renewed for another season? You will know the answer to all these questions later in this article.
What is the Renewal Status of Rick and Morty Season 6?
Rick and Morty season 6 is finally happening. The series is returning for a sixth season. All the fans who were anxiously waiting for the renewal and now breathe a sigh of relief. Moreover, it is also revealed that season 6 will have 10 episodes, just like the previous seasons. The show’s co-creator, Dan Harmon recently confirmed the renewal via an Instagram post. He also confirmed that the series’ alum Alex Rubens is working on the sixth season’s script.
Following the renewal announcement, viewers were quite concerned regarding an official trailer for Rick and Morty Season 6. Unfortunately, the creators haven’t dropped an official trailer yet. The fifth season concludes on August 22. Henceforth, we can expect to see something after that. Usually, the series drops the trailer three months before the actual premiere. However, I would suggest the fans not expect anything until next year. Let’s see what the creators have in store for Rick and Morty fans.
Do We Have Any Release Date Yet?
As mentioned above, the fifth season is currently airing on Adult Swim. Therefore, it is quite early for any franchise to reveal a release date for another season. So, for now, we don’t have the official release date for Rick and Morty Season 6. The show’s creators have mentioned that they have already started working on the sixth season’s production. Henceforth, predicting a 2022 release date is quite a safe bet.
Justin Roiland will reprise his roles as Rick and Morty in the upcoming season. Besides him, the other people to return are as follows:
- Chris Parnell as Jerry
- Sarah Chalke as Beth
- Spencer Grammer as Summer Smith
- Kari Wahlgren as Jessica
- Keith David as the American President
- Dan Harmon as Birdperson/Phoenix person/ Mr. Nimbus
- Alison Brie as Planetina
- Christina Ricci as Princess Poneta
- Darren Criss as Bruce Chutback
Expected Plot for Rick and Morty Season 6
However, the show creators have hinted nothing about the plot of the sixth season. Neither has season 5 concluded yet, so we can’t really predict anything. But what we know for sure is, that the Smith family will return with a whole new set of adventures.
