Rick and Morty has fully brought Space Beth back into the events of the series with Season 6, and the voice star behind both Beths has opened up about what the returning character means for her take on Beth already! After Rick offered Beth a chance to escape her life and leave a clone with the Smith Family, this Space version of Beth returned to the series at the end of the fourth season. While the fifth season didn't bring her into the series really, Season 6 has already changed things by promising we'd get to see her more often.
Bringing such a different version of Beth into the series was a pretty exciting shake up for the star behind Beth, Sarah Chalke, as she spoke about in an interview with Screenrant and CBR leading into the new season of the series. Revealing more about the opportunities such a new character brings to not only Beth's character, but the rest of the Smith Family moving forward, Chalke is pretty pumped up to see where this new dynamic will lead in future episodes and seasons.
"That was a really fun journey to play and to go on with Beth," Chalke began when talking about Space Beth's first introduction. "To see how that dynamic has shifted even more as soon as Space Beth comes into the picture, how her relationship with Rick became so tied up with who's the clone, and then the power dynamics shift." But the real exciting aspect of it was seeing how the two Beths ended up coming to a different kind of conclusion than Rick might have expected to see from the duo after everything that happened.
"Now, both Beths took their power back by realizing, 'Oh, we actually don't care that [much] which one of us is the clone...'" Chalke continued. "I think one of the funnest parts of the show is there's no relationship that is ever static. They're constantly shifting. They're constantly changing." That seems to be the running theme for Season 6 so far as the characters continue to change after the end of the fifth season, and it's also why fans can't wait to see what happens in the rest of the series' run to come.
