What will be the plot of Season 6?
The previous season of Rick and Morty concluded on a cliffhanger.
In the final two-part episode, we saw Evil Morty break through the Central Finite Curve, a wall that obstructed the different multiverses where Rick wasn’t the smartest man on Earth.
The episode ended with Evil Morty going through a portal, implying that he was searching for a universe that Rick didn’t control. This opened up multiple possible futures for the show’s next story and characters.
Regardless, according to the synopsis for season six, Rick and Morty could be heading towards imminent death.
The summary read: ‘It’s season six, and Rick and Morty are back! Pick up where we left off, worse for wear and for their luck. Will they manage to recover for more adventures? Or they will be swept away by an ocean of c**s!
They continued, ‘Who knows?! P.S! Family! Intrigue! A bunch of dinosaurs! More shit! Another can’t miss the season of your favorite show.
