Co-creator says the new Season will be Amazing
After an underwhelming fifth season, which was impacted by the sudden demise of line producer J. Michael Mendel, co-creator Justin Roiland has promised that the next installment will be much better.
Roilnad said, “So it’s like, I think we’re kind of finally back into the rhythm of Rick and Morty, and I think Season 6 is…didn’t particularly think Season 5 was bad, but Season 6 is f*cking amazing. It really is a f*cking quality season.”
He further revealed that the upcoming season will resonate with the long-term viewers of the show, adding, “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.”
The official synopsis of the season says that the show will pick up where it left from, and adds, “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.”
Rick and Morty Anime is also in the Works
Fans have another reason to rejoice as apart from the upcoming new season, an anime-based Rick and Morty show is also coming to Adult Swim. The series is currently in development and is expected to feature an entirely fresh take on the show.
The anime will be helmed by Tower of God director Takeshi Sano, who is described as a ‘superfan’ of the show. “I am honored to have been given an opportunity to tell a new story about this amazing family. I hope you enjoy their adventures!” said Sano about the project.
