Rick and Morty fans celebrated the return of one of the biggest cult animated comedies recently, with the show back on our screens.
The fifth season arrived on Adult Swim in the US and E4 in the UK, and now people are already starting to look ahead to the future.
Fans have been more vocal online than ever, especially as one of the most popular theories has been confirmed.
Just as viewers of the hit show were waiting impatiently for season five, now the wait begins for new episodes all over again.
There could soon be more Rick and Morty on the way soon, too, after makers confirmed a film version is in the pipeline.
But will there be a sixth season? Here’s everything you need to know.

The good news is, the show is definitely coming back for a sixth season – and possibly more in the future.
Time Warner Broadcasting and Adult Swim put in a huge order for 70 more Rick and Morty episodes way back in 2018. Both season four and season five contained 10 episodes each, meaning there are 50 more episodes expected as part of the deal.
If there continues to be 10 episodes per season, it could fans all the way up to season 10.
The show recognised fans’ desire for new episodes after officially announcing season five, with a tweet saying: ‘Now you can start asking us about season 6.’
How long does it take to make more Rick and Morty episodes?
The creators of the hit show, Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon, have been working continuously on the series since it first arrived back in 2013 and getting through new seasons at an impressive pace – and not letting the pandemic set them back too far.
Since the deal for 70 new episodes was signed in 2018, each season has taken around a year and six months to arrive.
If things take a similar time for season six, fans could possibly expect new episodes by summer 2022. However, a release date has yet to be confirmed.
Rick and Morty season 5 airs on Mondays on E4 in the UK at 10pm.
