When Rick and Morty first premiered the sequence appeared to be principally self-contained adventures (we’re getting shut to 100 years of it) however because the sequence continues its serialized storytelling solely expanded, together with getting to some extent that tales that appeared to be standalone have been precise integral to the bigger mythology. This principally hit its peak in season 5 when virtually the complete season had storylines and adventures that performed into the present’s dense continuity. With the upcoming sixth season nevertheless the sequence will seemingly shift again to a sample that followers have been extra in tune with
“It might be a return to a season 3 ratio of canon to one-off energy,” sequence co-creator Dan Harmon revealed to Polygon. “And more importantly, the relationship between [that and the other seasons]….Maybe if season 5 might have felt a little bit more like almost a compulsive aversion to canon, and then a big episode at the end that promised all of it. And then season 6 is like, ‘Yeah, moving forward, we’re going to continue to try to hit that ratio the right way, as opposed to like, either compulsively avoiding it or indulging in it.'”
Harmon’s collaborator and fellow co-creator Justin Roiland added: “We’ve always seen the show being able to live in both [worlds] if we’re careful. We could say, ‘F-ck it, let’s go full serialized, f-ck it.’ But I just feel like it would – I don’t know if it would be good. It’s almost like an Oreo cookie. And you’re just eating the shit in the middle and then you’re throwing away [the rest]. You kind of need both things.”
Rick and Morty’s sixth season will premiere on Sunday, September 4, and critiques for the brand new episodes are already glowing. In an ideal 5 out of 5 evaluation, (*6*)ComicBook.com’s Kofi Outlaw wrote that: “After six seasons it’s also good to report that Rick and Morty is now letting its characters grow into their own, respective, three-dimensional people, as both the creators and actors now have such tight grips on who these characters are, where they’ve been, and where they may be heading. Everyone in the ensemble (even Jerry) is now much more than a caricature, and the show seems to get that as the character dynamics get more complicated – without ever getting too far away from the beats we know and love. Rick and Morty is still as funny, irreverent, and raunchy as ever, which is probably the least surprising thing about it, at this point.”
