In fact, the 3rd season of the show drew the largest audience in the show’s history, according to the sources. Furthermore, the show has even influenced a lot of video games, short films, tabletop games, and also pop-up shops. 

According to Christina Miller, the president of Cartoon Network, “Rick and Morty is truly what a modern-day hit looks like across multiple screens and multiple touchpoints.” So, we can see the craze and popularity of the show. 

Season 6 Development: What Did Dan Harmon Say About It?

Did you know that the 6th season is in development? At least that’s what we can figure out from the interviews of Dan Harmon. In the year 2020, in October, he told the rick and Morty fans that he and the writers were working on the show’s 5th as well as 6th edition. 

He said, “I often get confused right now between season 5 and season 6. Immediately after this panel, I’ll be reviewing an animatic for a late season 5 episode.” Moreover, he also affirmed that he and his team were writing the 6th season, looking for the finale as well. 

So, it’s really nice news for all the Rick and Morty lovers. Dan Harmon’s words will surely satisfy a lot of fans out there who were looking for the news of the 6th season. 

There’s No 6th Season Premiere Date As Of Yet, However, The Writers Have Bigger Plans

Right now, Dan Harmon and other writers have actually confirmed the existence of a 6th season. However, it’s also true that they have bigger plans for the show. In other words, the writers or the creators of the show have already planned season 7. 

In February 2021, Alex Rubens, the writer of Rick and Morty announced on Twitter that his team had started writing the 7th season’s script. Thereafter, in August, Cody Zigler announced that they have wrapped writing the 7th season. 

However, as we already know, it takes a lot of time to animate a series. Writing is the easy part and then comes execution. So, unfortunately, there are no words about Rick and Morty season 6th premiere date. However, the show will release this year in 2022. But we don’t have any concrete month or date yet. 

There’s a mighty chance that Adult Swim may split season 6 into two parts. In fact, if we take the lengths of the hiatuses between the prior seasons into account, then we can speculate that season 6 will make its debut this fall. 


Rick and Morty have become incredibly famous due to its outstanding reception. The audience of the show loved every bit of what the show offered. Now, the fans are eagerly waiting for the new season. 

Of course, the seasons will have episodes full of quirky humor and a lot of sci-fi elements. So, now’s the time to sit back and wait for further news. One thing is for sure, the future looks promising.
