Even in a multiverse full of infinite possibilities, it’s tough to imagine a world without Rick and Morty. But don’t worry, it looks like you won’t have to, at least not for quite some time.
Back in 2018, Adult Swim ordered 70 more episodes of Rick and Morty. Seventy.
Earlier this year, writer Alex Rubens teased fans on Twitter by saying: “Am I allowed to say we started writing Rick and Morty Season 7? (If not we didn’t and I’m not).”
Since then, Rick and Morty writer Cody Ziglar has confirmed via Twitter that the writing is now finished for season 7, which means season six must be coming sooner rather than later, right? It doesn’t get more schwifty than that!
Rick and Morty season 6 release date: When will it arrive?
Now that the creators are free to develop new episodes without waiting for a renewal, it looks like Rick and Morty’s release schedule could fall into a more regular pattern. If so, then season 6 could feasibly arrive a year after season 5 finishes airing, so around summer 2022.
Don’t bet all your schmeckles on that just yet, though.Co-creator Justin Roiland once suggested airing each chapter a month apart to give his team more breathing space. Who’s to say that Rick and Morty won’t try that out one day, or at the very least, release some holiday-themed specials beforehand?
Rick and Morty season 6 cast: Who’s coming back?
No matter which dimension we might be in, Rick and Morty just doesn’t work without Rick and Morty.
Chris Parnell, Sarah Chalke and Spencer Grammer are all but guaranteed to return as Jerry, Beth, and Summer Smith, respectively. Chalke will likely continue playing both Beth and Space Beth, her maybe-clone counterpart.
Other guest actors who could reappear in season 6 include:
• 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 Chutback.
Rick and Morty season 6 plot: What will it be about?
No season six plot details have been revealed just yet, but we live in hope that future stories will be more like ‘Mortyplicity‘ and less like ‘Rickdependence Spray‘, which remains perhaps the dumbest episode of Rick and Morty yet.
The season-five finale certainly suggested that things could head in this direction.
Not only did ‘Rickmurai Jack‘ bring back Evil Morty, but it also revealed Rick’s true backstory, which essentially confirmed that his wife and daughter were indeed killed by another Rick.
