A world without Rick and Morty is definitely tough to imagine, even in a multiverse full of infinite. With season 5 of Rick and Morty already nearing the end, it has left the fans wondering and willing to get Rick and Morty Season 6, as soon as possible.
Although no concrete news has surfaced surrounding the release date of Rick and Morty Season 6, we can guarantee that the productions of the same are underway already. Season 6 is already in the works; it can only be guessed the show will be released mid to late 2022.
Looking at the previous trends of releases, Rick and Morty usually release in a span of one-year time from the date it concludes the previous seasons. Rick and Morty seasons 4 and 5 ended in 2020 and 2021 respectively and looking at the hints, we are certain we would get to see Rick and Morty Season 6 in 2022.
In the Adult Swim Festival 2021, the broadcaster confirmed the plans of a Rick and Morty premiere in 2022. It was announced in the Rick and Morty exclusive panel and that’s all the information we have regarding the release date.
However, Adult Swim has been known for surprising its fans and they might actually end up releasing Season 6 before the planned dates. Just Roiland, the co-creator of Rick and Morty once advised about airing one chapter a month which would give the team more time and space. Adult Swim is also looking at the possibilities of airing episodes more sporadically.
Rick and Morty Season 6 Cast
Fans have been anticipating Season 6 for many different reasons but what builds up the curiosity, even more, is the cast of the new season. Every single fan of the show will agree that the show doesn’t feel the same without Rick and Morty and we can confirm the return of the regulars in the next season.
Both Rick and Morty’s character is going to be reprised by Justin Roiland and he is also going to voice them both, like before. We are also going to get Sarah Chalke as Beth again along with Chris Parnell as Jerry and Spencer Grammer as Summer.
Over the past two seasons, we have seen how Rick and Morty have expanded and started having guest stars in their special episodes. Elon Musk, Taiki Waititi, and Steve Buscemi have already appeared in the last two seasons and we can also expect to see someone of the same caliber in Season 6.
However, there has been no official news surrounding the guest stars. In addition to that, we are also going to see Gillian Jacobs, Jim Rash, Alison Brie, and Joel McHale playing their parts in the new season.
Rumors also suggest we could even see a reprise of Mr. Poopybutthole who appeared last at the end of season 5. Other guest actors who we can expect to see are Kari Wahlgreen, Keith David, Darren Criss, and Christina Ricci among others.
Rick and Morty Season 6 Plot Expectations
Although we still haven’t any updates regarding the plot of Season 6 we can just share with you what we and the fans worldwide would hope to get from the new season. Looking at season five, it is expected of Rick and Morty to continue on the serialized storytelling they have developed recently.
Like every season, we can also expect the duo to go harder on canon than in previous seasons. In season 5 we have seen Evil Morty destroying the Central Finite Curve and blowing up The Citadel and we can definitely expect them to create more mind-blowing stories in the future seasons.
Talking about concluding the show once and for all or ending it at season 7, Roiland said
“Its way too early to say. On any given day you’ll feel like this thing can go for 20,30 seasons. We have characters that don’t really age, its very Simpsons-eque. There’s so much we can do to keep riding this train.”
What we can expect from Season 6 is still highly unknown but we can guarantee entertainment and thrill like never before with the new season of Rick and Morty.
