What will be the plot of Season 6?
The previous season of Rick and Morty concluded with a cliffhanger.
In the two-part finale episode, we saw Evil Morty breaking the Central Finite Curve, a wall that obstructed the different multiverses where Rick was not the smartest man on Earth.
The episode ended with Evil Morty stepping through a portal which implied that he was looking for a universe that was uncontrolled by Rick. This opened multiple possible futures for the show’s forthcoming storyline and characters.
Regardless, according to the synopsis of the sixth season, Rick and Morty might be heading towards impending doom.
The overview stated, ‘It’s season six, and Rick and Morty are back! Pick up where we left them, worse for wear and down on their luck. Will they manage to bounce back for more adventures? Or will they get swept up in an ocean of p**s!’
They continued, ‘Who knows?! P**s! Family! Intrigue! A bunch of dinosaurs! More p**s! Another can’t miss the season of your favorite show.’
