Rick And Morty's sixth season is set to arrive this fall, continuing the surreal journey of the Smith Family. Prior to the season's release, co-creator Justin Roiland recently participated in an interview in which he hyped up the upcoming episodes, describing them as "amazing" and hinting that season six will be a big one for long-time fans. With the fifth season ending on quite the finale, Adult Swim fans are looking forward to the surreal series' major comeback on September 6th.
Justin Roiland is definitely a busy man, not just with Rick And Morty mind you, but also with his Hulu animated series, Solar Opposites, which recently released its third season and follows an alien family attempting to navigate Planet Earth with futuristic technology. On top of this series, Roiland also heads up a video game studio, which is working on the game High On Life.
In speaking with IGN, Roiland discussed how the sixth season will play on events from the series' past while also being a "quality season" at the end of the day:
"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 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 f*cking amazing. It really is a f*cking quality season."
During the interview, Roiland also took the opportunity to share his five favorite episodes of Rick And Morty, with the list consisting of Total Rickall, Rixty Minutes, Big Trouble in Little Sanchez, The Ricks Must Be Crazy, and M. Night Shaym-Aliens.
The official description for the sixth season of Rick And Morty reads as such:
"It's season six and Rick and Morty are back! Pick up where we left them, worse for wear and down on their luck. Will they manage to bounce back for more adventures? Or will they get swept up in an ocean of piss! Who knows?! Piss! Family! Intrigue! A bunch of dinosaurs! More piss! Another can't miss season of your favorite show."
