'Rick And Morty' Season 6 Premiere Date Set

'Rick And Morty' Season 6 Premiere Date Set

While the show comes out on the network Adult Swim initially, episodes release on Netflix simultaneously, one every week.

Grab your portal guns, because Rick and Morty is coming back to your television (or laptop) screens soon, LADBible reported. Releasing on Adult Swim, the network that broadcasts the show, the sixth season will premiere globally on September 4, 2022. Like before, Netflix will be simultaneously dropping episodes, following the weekly release schedule.


The show follows the grandfather-grandson duo, mad scientist Rick Sanchez and Morty Smith as they dabble in domestic and adventurous endeavors through interdimensional travel. Sparingly, the whole family including Rick’s daughter Beth, his son-in-law Jerry, and Morty’s sister Summer join along for the adventures. Rick often leads Morty and himself through adventures that are brutal, often making him do embarrassing things. Meanwhile, Beth is thoroughly convinced that Rick is a terrible parent after he abandoned her in her youth. Jerry sticks around as the characters’ punching bag, often becoming the butt of all jokes. 


In the last season, we saw Evil Morty frolicking around and causing chaos in the infinite multiverse by destroying the Citadel of Ricks, killing off numerous alternate Ricks and Mortys in the process. In addition to that, he also traveled using the central finite curve to go to universes where Rick isn’t the smartest person in the room. Morty and his grandfather Rick have an extremely loving relationship that involves interdimensional adventures. However, more recently, Morty choosing to continue living with Rick and not joining Evil Morty on his adventures has strained their relationship. It seems that Rick is of the impression that he’s a bad influence on Morty. 


With unexplored relationship dynamics and multiple loose ends from last season, the new one will probably delve into what happens next. A little history lesson about the show, it was originally a short parody film based on Back to the Future, for Channel 101, written and performed by Justin Roiland who also voices both Rick and Morty in the show. With the success of the short film, Roiland and Dan Harmon created the show for Cartoon Network’s late-night programming block called Adult Swim. 


Now, Rick and Morty is one of the most highly rated shows with an IMDb rating of 9.2 and a 94% Rotten Tomatoes score. Additionally, the show has won two Primetime Emmy Awards, both for Oustanding Animated Program in 2018 and most recently in 2020. Fortune even called it the ‘Millennials’ Favorite TV Show.’ However, the ratings just provide a glimpse into the brilliance of Rick and Morty. Exploring family dynamics, studying the human condition, and revering a strong family bond are what make the animated series relatable to so many fans. Adding to viewers' excitement, the network has greenlit 70 episodes over an unspecified number of seasons.
