Fans should not take the Rick and Morty Season 6 hiatus as a sign the show is running out of steam, though. On the contrary, producers Scott Marder and James Siciliano recently confirmed that a further two seasons of Rick and Morty are in the works, with Marder promising that a new season will drop every year.
There’s an unbelievable amount that we have going on,” Siciliano involved. “I don’t know how much we could talk about, but as far as the production, we have Season 6 coming out, and Season 7 in production. We have the writers’ room for Season 8 going. So that’s about 20 episodes in some form of production, and the new season that we’re breaking.”
Marder also betrayed that Rick and Morty Season 6 will push the series’ overarching narrative in a new direction. The maker added that this was because the Rick and Morty Season 5 finale wrapped up several long-running plot threads from the show’s run up until that point. ”
The Season 6 of Rick and Morty returns to Adult Swim on Nov. 20, 2022.
Please use this time to expand your mind in preparation for the rest of the season
