Rick And Morty Co-Creator Justin Roiland Confirms Season 6 Will Go The Route Fans Have Been Hoping

Having already been confirmed years ago as part of its mega-renewal deal at Adult Swim, Rick and Morty Season 6 is just over a month away from making its highly anticipated debut. Thankfully, the hiatus between seasons hasn’t been nearly as torturous as those of past years have been, and it’ll actually be the shortest gap yet between one finale and the following premiere. (364 days, to be exact.) As if that wasn’t already exciting enough, co-creator Justin Roiland offered up a quick tease for the new episodes that will likely have one large section of the fanbase happier than pig aliens in pig- alien shit.

Speaking with IGN as tied to San Diego Comic-Con 2022, Justin Roiland reflected on Season 5 not being ideal in his mind, in that its production was marred by the 2019 death of his close friend and Emmy-winning producer J. Michael Mendel, whose fifth win came posthumously for Season 4’s excellent “The Vat of Acid Episode.” But rather than wading through more mournful territories, Roiland tapped into a more upbeat vibe and shared some high praise for Season 6, saying:

I will say that it’s a bit more canonical. It really rewards fans of the show that have been watching up to this point…So it’s like, I think we’re kind of finally back into the rhythm of Rick and Morty, and I think Season 6 is… I didn ‘t particularly think Season 5 was bad, but Season 6 is fucking amazing. It really is a fucking quality season.
