Coming this September, the two-time Emmy Award-winning animated comedy hits the multiverse with all-new episodes that pose the question: will they bounce back from Season 5 adversity, or get swept up in an ocean of piss?
Now we know! Adult Swim’s two-time Emmy Award-winning animated comedy, Rick and Morty, returns with an all-new season of intergalactic frivolity and witty banter on Sunday, September 4. It’s Season 6 if you must know.
Rick and Morty stars Justin Roiland (Solar Opposites), Sarah Chalke (Scrubs), Chris Parnell (Saturday Night Live), and Spencer Grammer (Greek). Created by Dan Harmon (Community) and Roiland, who also serve as executive producers, the show was the #1 comedy across all US cable in 2017, 2019, and 2021. Since launch, Rick and Morty ranks as one of the top series for HBO Max, both domestically and globally. Lifetime to date, the show has been viewed over 10B times globally, across linear, digital, and streaming.
“It’s hard to overstate the impact of Rick and Morty, said Michael Ouweleen, president of Adult Swim and Cartoon Network. “More than a hit show, it is truly a global phenomenon. As we prepare to launch this soon-to-be iconic season, we will be giving fans a unique way to be part of the fun – so keep your eyes peeled.”
The series follows a sociopathic genius scientist who drags his inherently timid grandson on insanely dangerous adventures across the universe. Rick Sanchez is living with his daughter Beth’s family and constantly bringing her, his son-in-law Jerry, granddaughter Summer, and grandson Morty into intergalactic escapades.
In Season 6, we pick up where we left the duo, 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!
Inquiring minds want to know.
