Rick And Morty Season 6: Release Date, Cast And More

(Welcome to ...And More, our no-frills, zero B.S. guide to when and where you can watch upcoming movies and shows, and everything else you could possibly stand to know.)

Time to hop in a vat of acid, grab your Meeseeks box and get schwifty, because "Rick and Morty" is coming back sooner than you think! The show is arguably the defining adult cartoon of the past decade, challenging ideas of what adult animation on TV can look like in a post-"The Simpsons" and post-"South Park" world. The show created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon balances wacky and gross comedy with sci-fi scenarios like alternate dimensions, paradoxes and more, all while delivering very emotionally complex scenes and storylines.

But as popular and acclaimed as "Rick and Morty" is, it takes a long time to produce. It's been almost 10 years since the show first premiered and in that time we've only gottten 51 episodes divided among five seasons. Thankfully, we won't wait much longer for the next batch of episodes because we finally know when the sixth season of "Rick and Morty" will be released!

Rick and Morty season 6 release date and where to watch it

Adult Swim announced that "Rick and Morty" season 6 will premiere on September 4, 2022 at 11:00 PM ET/PT on Adult Swim. This is almost exactly a whole year since the end of season 5, which premiered on June 20 last year. Though we don't know how many episodes there will be this season, there's no reason to believe it will have anything other than 10 episodes just like the past four seasons of the show.

Sadly, those hoping for a next day premiere on HBO Max may be disappointed, as the show is still wrapped up in a deal with Hulu, where new episodes will arrive shortly after its TV broadcast.

What is Rick and Morty season 6 about?

We don't know much about the new episodes and what they'll be about, but we do have an official logline for the new season:

"It's season six and Rick and Morty are back! Pick up where we left them, worse for wear and down on their luck. Will they manage to bounce back for more adventures? Or will they get swept up in an ocean of piss! Who knows?! Piss! Family! Intrigue! A bunch of dinosaurs! More piss! Another can't miss season of your favorite show."

If the logline is anything to go by, it seems there will be a lot of piss this upcoming season.

Last time we met Rick and Morty, they had briefly split up after Rick finally acknowledged how abusive his relationship with his grandson was and decided to go on an anime-inspired adventure. The finale dropped a couple of bombshells on the audience, such as a confirmation of Rick's backstory showing the death of his original wife Diane and his daughter Beth. Then we watched as Rick started killing hundreds of other Ricks in order to find who killed his family, leading to the creation of the Citadel. 

We also learn that the Citadel is actually a breeding ground for Mortys, with hundreds of clones ready to be taken on wild adventures. Those clones are also used to power a wall that keeps out universes where Rick isn't the smartest man alive. The episode ends with Evil Morty destroying the Citadel and this wall that separates universes, right before stepping into a portal to an unknown dimension.

The cast and crew of Rick and Morty season 6 and more

The main cast is expected to return, which includes Justin Roiland as the titular Rick and Morty. We've also got Chris Parnell as Jerry, Spencer Grammer as Summer, and Sarah Chalke as Beth. "Rick and Morty" is known for having an impressive array of guest stars as well, and we can't wait to see who they got for this season.

In addition to the sixth season, Adult Swim recently released a spin-off series centered around The Vindicators. Plus, there's an anime series from director Takashi Sanok is also on the way. Stay tuned for the latest on "Rick and Morty" right here at /Film.
