Rick and Morty Showrunner Hints "Larger Story" on The Way in Season 6

Rick and Morty will be returning to Adult Swim with its highly anticipated sixth season in just under a week from the time of this writing, and two of the producers behind the series are hyping up the much "larger" story that we will get to see unfold from Season 6 and beyond! The end of the fifth season of the series brought with it some massive changes for what fans have come to expect from each of the season's finales. Destroying its previous idea of the multiverse, the finale had teased it was only the start of what's coming our way. Thankfully, the team behind the series is meeting that challenge head-on.  

The end of the fifth season not only brought some significant events with it, but the tease that Rick and Morty would be giving more emphasis to the series' main story despite all of the years fighting against it. As showrunner behind the series, Scott Marder, revealed in an interview with Inverse leading to the new season's premiere, Rick and Morty Season 6 is part of the kick off to the "second half of a larger story" following everything that went down with Evil Morty at the end of Season 5.

Marder first began with detailing the trouble at first of following up Season 5's big finale and noting it was a "really arduous process." Explaining that, "[Season 5's finale] left us with a ton of homework and a lot to live up to. We actually had a few different versions of the episode that were completely different. We ultimately weren't happy with it and scrapped it and found this one that you guys are getting now." But while there was some trouble in figuring out exactly how to pick back up after that major finale, Marder teased this really is only the beginning. 

"I feel like it closes that book, but at the same time, opens up a new one. There was a clear and present danger that was always there that so naturally emerged coinciding with Evil Morty to begin the second half of a larger story." Naturally there's no detail as to what this second half of the story could potentially mean, but Season 6 is already shaping up to be just as game-changing of a season as the last.
