Rick and Morty Season 6 Release Date, Cast and More

In 2018, Adult Swim, the network that commissions Rick and Morty, ordered a whopping SEVENTY episodes of the show! And if each season has ten episodes, that would take up to seven seasons!

But, of course, that is a fancy way of saying they have seven more seasons confirmed, and with season four being released in 2019 and with season five in 2021, it is obvious that we now have five more seasons remaining, and it will kick in off with season 6. 

The writers have tweets saying that they have finished writing season seven, and thus it is natural to assume that season six is well underway into production. So it won’t be long till we join our favorite dimension-hopping, multi universal, mad, high functioning alcoholic scientist and his grandson on their misadventures through our, and others’, universe.

As of the writing of this article, there is no concrete release date for the Rick and Morty Season 6. However, we do know that it will release in 2022. In 2021, Adult Swim held a festival, and in its panel, they had mentioned that the Rick and Morty Season 6 would release in 2022. As they, and Netflix, are fans of dropping surprises, we can expect to see the sixth season at any time. We just need to keep our eyes peeled.

Rick and Morty Cast

Having Rick and Morty without its titular characters is like a body without its head. You need both to function normally. Seeing that, the cast is as follows:

  • Justin Roiland
  • Chris Parnell
  • Sarah Chalke
  • Spencer Grammer
  • Kari Wahlgren
  • Keith David
  • Dan Harmon
  • Alison Brie
  • Christina Ricci
  • Darren Criss

Apart from these, expect to see quite a few cameos from some very recognizable names.

Rick and Morty Season 6 Trailer

We do not have any trailer or a concrete release date, as the new season just got announced a few months back. However, this will change as we get closer to the launch date of the new season. 

Rick and Morty Season 6 Storyline

As with previous seasons, expect it to be a bunch of interwoven story threads, showing Rick and Morty traversing space and the multiverse, getting into misadventures, falling in love with aliens, fighting wars for aliens, and many other insanely great moments. 

Apart from their usual shenanigans, we can see them revisiting some old storylines, like that of Rick’s family being killed by a Rick from another dimension, Evil Morty and Evil Summer, and some others.

However, the creators have also said that the episodes this time will be slightly more family-centric, which would be a nice surprise. 

It will be full of sarcasm, quips, and jokes and have depth and heart to it, more than the previous seasons. 

Rick and Morty Season 6 Premiere Date

We have only received confirmation that they have finished writing the seventh season and nothing more; we do not have a definite premiere date. But, seeing how it is deep into production and confirmation from Adult Swim that it will release in 2022 and that it would be following the standard release schedule as previous seasons, we can expect it to release between June and September like season five. 

The Conclusion

One, cannot wait to see the new season of Rick and Morty. It is easily one of the best and most original shows we have received in the past few years. And with the sway it holds over pop culture with many of its now-iconic quotes (“I’m Pickle Rick!”, “Get Schwifty”, “Wubba Lubba Dub Dub!”) and countless references to other works of pop culture within it.

And other pop culture elements making references to it as well, the new season will quickly go down as one of the most anticipated seasons of a show in a long time.
