It’s been a long old wait as season 5 wrapped way back on September 5, 2021, so it’s been the best part of a year for not-so-patient fans – but the good news is there isn’t long left to go! Considering there was a two-year wait between seasons 3 and 4, they’re making good time.

When is Rick and Morty season 6 coming out?
A new press release confirms Rick and Morty Season 6 will be hitting screens in the US on Sunday, Sept. 4. There is no UK release date yet.
It reads: “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.”
Michael Ouweleen, president of Adult Swim and Cartoon Network says: “It’s hard to overstate the impact of Rick and Morty. 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.”
A spin-off is also in the works, after Adult Swim ordered Rick and Morty: The Anime from director Takashi Sanok.
Rick and Morty Season 6 trailer:
Fans were hoping a trailer would be released along with the official launch date, but no such luck.
However, they did release a first-look picture, and of course it’s as bizarre as ever. Both Rick and Morty have been hitting the pre-workout, sporting some serious abs.
