Rick and Morty Forever

Rick and Morty Season 6 release date, time, plot, cast, and trailer for the sci-fi animated series

Season 5 ended with a cliffhanger. How with Rick and Morty get out of this one?

That portal-hopping duo of Rick and Morty are teleporting back to Earth for Season 6 this week after nearly a year-long wait, and we’re all in dire need of their delirious brand of diversionary misadventures.

Back in 2021, Season 5 came to a sudden and shocking finale with Evil Morty destroying The Citadel of Ricks and obliterating the Central Finite Curve, which was a defensive construct employed by Rick to partition off any alternative realities where he wasn’t the smartest guy in the universe.

In the final scenes, Evil Morty traversed his way towards one such pocket universe and entered a golden portal where Rick’s intelligence is likely greatly diminished. Exactly what weird wonders he’ll discover is anyone’s guess, but it’s guaranteed to be something surreal and sensational.

Let’s tear down this tantalizing Rick and Morty Season 6 before another brain cell twitches! Here’s everything you need to know, from release date and time to how to watch it and what to expect.
