Rick and Morty Season 6 is something that would build the excitement of the fans to another level. The show has won the Emmy Awards two times. This animated adult show focuses mainly on an unconventional scientist, Rick Sanchez, and Morty Smith, his grandson.

Both of them set together for new adventures across time and space. Throughout their journey, we see some ups and downs in their relationship and the bond they share with each other.

Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland are the creators of the science-fiction show. This show was made based on the short film Back to the Future, which was also an animated film.

Rick and Morty had first released way back in 2013, on the 2nd of December. All the fans and viewers of the show showered their love towards it solely for its creativity and humor. The animation style of the show was very simple, and people had a mixed response about it.

As time passed, the show went on, impressing the audience and built a huge fan base. The method of writing each ad every episode was very smartly done which pulled a greater audience.

We have seen five seasons of the show already, so the confusion lies in whether we will see a Rick and Morty Season 6. Here is everything that we have for you.

When will Rick and Morty Season 6 be Released?

Rick and Morty Season 5 landed on the 20th of June, 2021, exclusively on Adult Swim, which is the programming block of Cartoon Network. The fifth season of the show ended on the 5th of September 2021.

This season has ten episodes, and each episode has an approximate run time of 22 minutes each.

For information about Rick and Morty Season 6, back in 2018, on the 10th of May, there was a massive order made on the show, which had asked for 70 more episodes. According to the number of episodes that were fixed in the deal, we cannot say how many seasons would come out of it.

Each season of Rick and Morty has a maximum of ten episodes. The only exception was the first season which came with eleven episodes. However, there are expectations that the show would run for a total of ten seasons, which means that Rick and Morty Season 6 is definitely a yes.

If we focus on the deal, then only twenty episodes have been made in the fourth and fifth season out of the 70. This states that there are 50 more episodes left for the show to bring to the audience.

The release date of the Rick and Morty Season 6 has not been announced till now. We have earlier experience some long waiting periods for the show. The waiting period has even gone up to 19-20 months.

However, such a long waiting period will not be seen in the future. The main reason for a long waiting period is that the production team is ready with a goal in their mind. They have to deliver a massive order according to the fixed deal.

In late August 2021, we saw Spencer Grammer, the voice behind Summer Smith, showering light on the work which will happen soon in the upcoming season. The writers are busy penning down the new season, and after that, they might start with writing Rick and Morty Season 7 as well.

Justin Roiland, the co-creator of the show, had even suggested an idea back in 2020 that the show might release one episode every month. This was just a normal statement made by him, and nothing about this has been announced officially. We are sure about the fact that the creators do not want to keep the fans of the show waiting for long.

If whatever has been mentioned is true that writers will be busy writing for the 7th season, then we can be sure that Rick and Morty Season 6 is currently in full-fledged production.

A few sources also tell us that both Season 5 and Season 6 were in production simultaneously. Judging from all the leaks and rumors, we can say that Rick and Morty Season 6 might come sometime in the third quarter of 2026.

Whom might we hear voicing the characters in Rick and Morty Season 6?

Nothing has been announced yet officially, but we can safely say that if a Rick and Morty Season 6 comes, we will hear the same voice artists voicing the lead characters of the show.

This would mean we will get to hear Justin Roiland in the voice of Morty Smith and Rick Sanchez, Spencer Grammer in the voice of Summer Smith, Sarah Chalke in the voice of Space Beth and Beth Smith, and Chris Parnell in the voice of Jerry Smith. We might also get to hear Kari Wahlgren’s voice in Jessica’s character.

In Rick and Morty Season 5, a few new characters were introduced in the show. A few of these characters have also been very well appreciated by the fans.

So there are chances that in the upcoming season, we might get to hear Alison Brie in the voice of Planetina, Keith David in the voice of President Curtis, Timothy Olyphant in the voice of Coop, and Dan Harmon in the voice of the Birdperson. We might also get to see some new members in the upcoming new season.

What could be the possible plot of Rick and Morty Season 6?

In Rick and Morty Season 5, we saw that the grandfather and grandson duo had a few of the most unusual and unforgettable experiences. In Episode 3 of this season, Morty’s love life took an amazing turn.

He starts dating Planetina, a superhero. However, after Planetina destroyed a coal mine that had many people in it, Morty decided to break up with her.

In Rickternal Friendshine of the Spotless Mort, we saw a quick flashback of the past life of Rick. He gets to know that his Birdperson has a daughter.

Rick tries his best and succeeds in resurrecting his friend, after which the Birdperson goes out to find his daughter. In the final few episodes of the series, we saw Rick and Morty both exploring several adventures separately.

Rick and Morty Season 6 will also be exploring different sides of the members of the Smith family. There are chances we might get to see a storyline focusing on Evil Summer. Each episode of the show focuses on one particular adventure and a few of the story arcs, which are touched from time to time.

We will also get to see what happens to Birdperson further in Rick and Morty Season 6. Evil Morty might also be showcased in a few of the episodes as the fans of the show have liked the character a lot.
