It isn’t easy to imagine a world without Rick and Morty, even in a cosmos filled with limitless possibilities. Season 5 of Rick and Morty is already streaming on Adult Swim, and fans are quite thrilled to see it. After a year of anticipation, they are now enjoying the fifth season, which will end on August 22, 2021. Rick and Morty Season 6 has already piqued the interest of many devoted fans.
We can state that the series’ sixth season has already been renewed. In 2018, Time Warner Broadcasting and Adult Swim ordered a long-term deal to bring 70 new episodes over an undefined number of seasons before the announcement of the fourth season in 2019.
Adult Swim commissioned 70 more Rick and Morty episodes in 2018. Seventy. That’s a lengthy way of stating that season 6 has been confirmed for a long time, and it appears that production on that chapter is nearly complete. On Twitter earlier this year, writer Alex Rubens teased fans by saying: “Is it okay if I say we’ve begun writing Season 7 of Rick and Morty? (If not, we didn’t, and I’m not one of them.).”
So season 6 is in the works, but season 7 is also in the early phases of development.
Rick and Morty’s release schedule could fall into a more regular pattern now that the creators can develop new episodes without waiting for renewal. If that’s the case, season 6 might premiere a year after season 5 in the summer of 2022.

Adult Swim might surprise us with an early release date or perhaps change things up to release episodes more infrequently. Justin Roiland, the show’s co-creator, proposed airing each chapter a month apart to allow his team more breathing room.
With a direct address from Morty and Rick, Adult Swim announced a fall 2019 release timeframe for Season 4 in May 2019. Then, in October 2019, the official trailer was released. Finally, on April 1, 2020, the trailer for the second half of Season 4 was released, just one month before episodes resumed.
Season 5’s trailer was released on March 30, 2021, ahead of a June 20 launch, while the “First Look” animatic was released in July 2020. It may be surprising to consider, but an early animatic from Season 6 could be released before the end of Summer 2021. A full trailer will be removed depending on when the next season premieres, although they are typically released one to three months before the season’s debut.
If Rick and Morty move to an annual schedule, a Season 6 teaser will likely be released on or around April 1, 2022.
The most recent update was in 2020, which is a solid sign that Season 6 is on track.
During PaleyFest NY in October 2020, Dan Harmon commented, “I often get confused right now between Season 5 and Season 6.” “I’ll be evaluating an animatic for a late Season 5 episode right after this panel. Although it is late in the season. Season 6 was written by looking at both seasons’ finales and then polishing the finale of one and the premiere of the other.”
Things are a little hazy here because Harmon and fellow co-creator and showrunner Justin Roiland are involved every step of the way. If they were looking at an animatic, that late Season 5 episode hadn’t even begun the animation process, which can take months.
Rick and Morty don’t work without Rick and Morty, no matter which dimension we’re in. Of course, that implies that Justin Roiland will almost certainly repeat his two starring roles in Season 6, but who will he join?
Jerry, Beth, and Summer Smith will be played by Chris Parnell, Spencer Grammer, and Sarah Chalke. Chalke will almost certainly continue to portray both Beth and Space Beth, her clone counterpart.
Other casts who may return in season 6 include:
— Kari Wahlgren as Jessica.
— Alison Brie as Planetina.
— Christina Ricci as Princess Poneta
— Dan Harmon as Birdperson/Phoenixperson and also Mr Nimbus.
— Darren Criss as Bruce Chutback.
— Keith David as the President of the United States.
No season plot details have been published yet. Still, we’re hoping that future episodes will be more like ‘Mortyplicity’ and less like ‘Rickdependence Spray,’ which is still arguably Rick and Morty’s dumbest episode.
What we do know is that a new Vindicators spin-off will premiere on Adult Swim soon. Supernova, Vance Maximus, Alan Rails, Crocubot, and Noob Noob will all be kicking ass and taking names across the universe. And it’ll most likely take place before the season three episode in which the entire squad died.
Will there be any crossover between this short series and Rick and Morty season 6? Possibly not, even though it will be set in canon, which allows for crossovers in a manner that anime spin-offs do not.
Rick and Morty’s trailers have traditionally arrived one to three months before starting a new season. If this trend continues, don’t expect a full-fledged promo for Season 6 until next year. However, early animatics may surface sooner than that, especially given that we know that work on Season 7 has already begun.
Dan Harmon announced on Instagram in May 2020 that Alex Rubens, a Community alum, has joined the Rick and Morty writing staff for Season 6. Then, in February 2021, Rubens used Twitter to highlight several of his fellow writers.
As a result, we’ve already gotten a good glimpse into the Season 6 writers’ room:
• Alex Rubens
• Nick Rutherford
• Heather Campbell
• Rob Schrab
• James Siciliano
• Alex Song-Xia
• Cody Ziglar
• Grace Freud
• Albro Lundy IV
The voice of the characters
Rick and Morty’s universe has ballooned to ludicrous dimensions. Because the show spans various planets, galaxies, and timelines. There are constantly fresh people and monsters to meet.
As a result, the voice cast for Rick and Morty has expanded in tandem with the main duo’s escapades. While the central Smith-Sanchez family has been voiced by co-creator Justin Roiland, Chris Parnell, Spencer Grammer, and Sarah Chalke for the entire run, the programme also relies on a vast cast of other voice actors. Some performers return multiple times, while others appear only once or twice as special guests. But they all contribute to Adult Swim’s unique sonic tapestry.
Rick, Morty, Mr Meseeks, Mr Poopybutthole, and Mr Always Wants to Be Hunted are all voiced by Justin Roiland.
Justin Roiland is the show’s co-creator and the voice behind a lot of the show’s tone. Roiland voices Rick, Morty, Mr Meseeks, Mr Poopybutthole, and a slew of other differently spoken characters in the show’s bizarre world. Roiland’s tic-filled vocal patterns have generated a lot of the show’s humour since the pilot.
Roiland has worked as an animator and voice actor for a long time, beginning in 2004 with Dan Harmon, the co-creator of Rick and Morty, and his Channel 101 brand. He created cult cartoon shows like House of Cosbys and 2 Girls One Cup: the Show, only available online. Earl of Lemongrab (“Unacceptable!!!”) from Adventure Time was his former voice.
Chris Parnell provides Jerry Smith’s voice.
A former cast member of Saturday Night Live, Chris Parnell has a long and successful career in comedy as a live-action and voice actor. Parnell is most known for his appearances in films and television, including Garth Holliday in Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, Dr Leo Spaceman in 30 Rock, and many others. In addition, he has voiced characters on Archer, Robot Chicken, Gravity Falls, and other animated series. However, his voice is typically perfect for the “everyman” part, and as a result, he has only been asked to portray Jerry Smith in the melancholy form on Rick and Morty so far.
Spencer Grammer provides summer Smith’s voice
Spencer Grammar, the daughter of Kelsey Grammar, rose to fame as Casey Cartwright on the ABC Family collegiate drama Greek. Since then, she has primarily worked in live-action roles on shows like CSI, Chicago PD, and Grey’s Anatomy.
Sarah Chalke plays Beth Smith’s voice
Sarah Chalke, a Canadian actress, brings two colossal characters from TV comedy to her work on Rick and Morty. She rose to prominence as the “second Becky” on the ABC sitcom Roseanne. Then, she went on to play Dr Elliot Reid on the classic Scrubs for nine seasons. Chalke is recognized for her live-action humorous roles, but she has also done great voice work, especially on Clone High and American Dad.
Jessica, Cynthia, Samantha, and Mother Gaia are all voiced by Kari Wahlgren
Kari Wahlgren is well-known for her work as a voice actress in animated films, television shows, and video games. She is generally Rick and Morty’s go-to voice when portraying one of Summer’s teenage peers, evidenced by her character list above.
