They won’t say it, so we will: a very happy “wubba lubba dub dub” to you, because Adult Swim just released a new trailer for the hotly anticipated Season 6 of Rick and Morty just a month ahead of the season premiere. The new trailer gives us a glimpse into the cosmic mess of the new season, including all of the Sanchez/Smith family drama, which will premiere on Adult Swim on September 4. You can stream Seasons 1 through 5 on HBO Max now.
The trailer starts, as so many Rick and Morty episodes do, en media res, with Morty and Rick sitting with their back against a wall, in the middle of a laser gun fight with an unknown foe. Rick calls on his trusty ship to play a song to pump up their spirits. “Paranoid” by Black Sabbath begins playing over a series of looks into various disastrous situations, from Rick saying that the family is about to “vanish from reality” which, by the way, is different from dying, to Rick and Summer discussing escape methods in Die Hard/
Rick and Morty originally premiered on Adult Swim in 2013. The series follows Rick Sanchez and his daily space, time, and dimensional travels with his grandson Morty. The show also follows his relationship with his highly intelligent horse surgeon daughter, his hapless son-in-law, and his granddaughter Summer and how his garage-based lab and tendency to bring his work home with him impacts the entire family. The series, which takes a sitcom format, was almost immediately a cult success. In the nine years since it originally premiered, however, it has taken on a life of its own as a cultural phenomenon.
Rick and Morty is created by Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland. The main voice cast for the series includes Justin Roiland as Rick Sanchez, Chris Parnell as Jerry Smith, Spencer Grammer as Summer Smith, Sarah Chalke as Beth Smith, Maurice LaMarche as Morty, and Kari Wahlgren as Jessica. The series has proven to be bot ha critical and commercial success, spawning endless lines of merch, licensed products, and a whole catalog of Funko Pops.
It’s less than a month now until the sixth season premieres on Adult Swim on September 4, so you might want to catch up on the show, which is now on HBO Max. And you can also check out the new trailer below.
Rick Sanchez (Justin Roiland) may be the smartest man in the universe, but the same cannot be said of his family. In fact, the funniest moments in Rick and Morty are often found in Rick’s frustration at the dim-wittedness of his relatives.
Season 6 of the fan-favorite show is on the way, and fans are already thinking about everything they’d like to see when the show returns, but for now, we’ll just have to revel in the five seasons currently available. Though Rick is undoubtedly the most intelligent man in the show, selecting a runner-up isn’t quite as simple as it might seem.
Whether it be season 1 or season 5, fans of Rick And Morty just know that Jerry Smith (Chris Parnell), Rick’s bumbling son-in-law, will undoubtedly mess up at one point or another. He might develop an app that threatens to destroy the world. He might become a face of public outrage after refusing to give up his penis to save a war hero. He might even agree to help assassinate his father-in-law because he blames him for ruining his marriage.
Whatever he is doing, you can guarantee he’ll stumble and fall along the way (and probably receive more than his fair share of insults for doing so), but Jerry is the heart of the show, and Rick And Morty just wouldn’t be the same without him.
