Adult animated series Rick and Morty made a triumphant return with season six. The show will be airing both in America and the UK on a weekly basis. Express.co.uk takes a look at the episode schedule for the hit sci-fi cartoon.
When is the next episode of Ricky and Morty season 6 out?
Episodes of Rick and Morty season six drop on Sundays at 8pm Pacific Standard Time, which is 11pm Eastern Standard Time.
If you miss an episode, they are available on Adult Swim’s website to watch on catch up but beware the episodes will expire after a certain time.
Episodes are expected to be dropping on Hulu and HBO Max at a later date in America which has yet to be confirmed.
While in the UK, episodes air on Mondays (the day after) at 4am British Summer Time on E4.
For those in the UK, you can catch up with episodes on Channel 4’s streaming platform All4.
Season six is also going to be coming to Netflix UK and Ireland once the show’s broadcast has wrapped up, allowing viewers to binge the whole boxset in one go at a later date.
There is a total of 10 episodes slated to be in the new series – the same amount as most of the previous outings apart from season one which had 11 instalments.
Here is a list of the episode titles and when they are expected to be airing:
- Episode 1 – Solaricks – September 4
- Episode 2 – Rick: A Mort Well Lived – September 11
- Episode 3 – Bethic Twinstinct – September 18
- Episode 4 – Night Family – September 25
- Episode 5 – TBC – October 2
- Episode 6 – TBC – October 9
- Episode 7 – TBC – October 16
- Episode 8 – TBC – October 23
- Episode 9 – TBC October 30
- Episode 10 – TBC – November 6
All of the episode titles for the new series were announced previously but the order wasn’t confirmed.
The remaining episode titles are: Ricktional Mortpoon’s Rickmas Mortcation, Full Meta Jackrick, Final Destination,
A Rick in King Mortur’s Mort, Analyze P***, and Juricksic Mort.
Adult Swim has dropped a short synopsis for the second episode, which reads: “Morty is trapped and Rick needs to save him, but to do so, Summer must do a Die Hard. This won’t be easy because she’s never seen it.”
The season six trailer teased the episode with scientist Rick Sanchez (voiced by Justin Roiland) and Summer Smith (Spencer Grammer) surrounded by an alien army shooting people.
Summer asked her grandfather what she needed to do with Rick telling her to “just do a Die Hard”.
When the teen is perplexed by his answer, he explains: “Sneak around. Use air vents. You’ve never seen Die Hard?”
“I’m 17. No, I’ve never seen Die Hard,” she tells him. However, Rick seems unperturbed and replies: “Well, neither did the guy in Die Hard, so you’re nailing it.”
Each episode of Rick and Morty riffs off several movies and TV shows in popular culture, and it looks like the classic Bruce Willis action franchise will be another one getting a homage in the cartoon.
Following the tremendous success of Rick and Morty, Adult Swim gave the animated series a 70-episode order back in 2018.
From the looks of it, the show could continue past this order if it remains popular and fans continue to enjoy the new episodes.
Speaking in a recent interview, showrunner Dan Harmon said: “I very much expect the show to go beyond that [70-episode] order.”
He continued: “I don’t think that’s jinxing it, I mean, it just seems like, ‘Okay, we’ve got a certain amount of momentum here.’ The 70-episode order, to me, was like, ‘Well, how much can we commit to?'”
Harmon added to ScreenRant: “It’s like, ‘Oh, we got tenure, we’re told that we have a job tomorrow no matter what we do.’”
