Rick and Morty has been powering through the first six episodes of the sixth season over the last few weeks, but the series has announced that it will be going on a hiatus before the season returns for its final episodes! With the previous seasons each having a hiatus of their own in some way, fans had been curious as to whether or not the same would happen this time around. With the newest season seemingly setting up for a grand finale that would finally tie back into the events of the first episode of the new season, fans already wanted to know what was next.
But it seems like fans are going to have to wait a bit in order to see how the rest of the season plays out as Adult Swim has announced that Rick and Morty Season 6 will be going on hiatus from now until November 20th. This means it will be six more weeks before the series returns for the final four episodes of the new season, and now fans will have time to "expand your mind in preparation for the rest of the season" according to the announcement. Adult Swim's official announcement for the hiatus can be found below:

Rick and Morty spent the first six episodes of the season exploring a new kind of status quo for the series as Rick was forced to have more Earth based adventures with his family following his portal gun breaking at the end of the fifth season. Refusing to fix it until the end of the newest episode, now the series is heading into a very uncertain future for the final few episodes of Season 6. Because it's already seeming like the series will be getting into more wild concepts that fans saw in the first five seasons heading into the next finale.
If you wanted to catch up with Rick and Morty's episodes so far, you can now find the first five seasons of the series now streaming on Hulu and HBO Max. Season 6 of the series can be found on Adult Swim's official website with a cable subscription. Adult Swim teases the season so far 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."
