Explosive New Rick And Morty Season 6 Trailer Is For Die Hard Fans

Adult Swim's hugely popular sci-fi comedy returns September 4.


Adult Swim has dropped a new trailer for Season 6 of Rick and Morty. The next batch of episodes will start arriving on Sunday, September 4.

True to form, the next season looks bananas and shows no signs of the show losing its edge. Set to Black Sabbath's "Paranoid," the trailer is wall-to-wall packed with gunfights, laser battles, explosions, and a barrage of pop-culture references including a nuanced debate about Die Hard's plot.

Upon the season being given a release date back in July, president of Adult Swim and Cartoon Network, Michael Ouweleen, said in a statement, "It's hard to overstate the impact of Rick and Morty. More than a hit show, it is truly a global phenomenon. As we prepare to launch this soon-to-be iconic season, we will be giving fans a unique way to be part of the fun--so keep your eyes peeled."

Adult Swim ordered 70 episodes of the show back in 2018, and with each season being around 10 episodes each, it's safe to assume we've got many more years of Rick and Morty to look forward to after Season 6. Around the time Season 5 was wrapping up in June 2020, co-creator Dan Harmon stated that the writing team was already working on Season 7.

Rick and Morty premieres September 4 at 11PM ET/PT on Adult Swim.
