"Rick and Morty" is a widely revered adult comedy filled to the brim with science fiction and nihilism. The show is based on an elderly man, Rick Sanchez, who loves his alcohol and goes on adventures across the universe and multiverse with his young grandson Morty.

Sanchez lives in the basement of his daughter, Beth Smith's house, whom he abandoned at a young age. They live with her husband, Jerry Smith, his granddaughter Summer Smith and lastly, Morty himself.

The show combines dark comedic relief with undertones of philosophical, psychological, and sometimes social commentary while setting up a storyline that has fans on the edge of their seats.

Season 6 of this Emmy Award-winning absurdist cartoon will be returning on September 4, 2022, at 11:00 p.m. Eastern Time for audiences in the United States. Season 5 ended with the character Evil Morty, a Morty from another dimension, trying to escape to a multiverse where his grandfather is not the smartest man in the universe.

Whatever Rick and Morty will do in response remains unknown, but there is no doubt they will do it with a sense of pessimism and humor. If you're not in the mood for the potency of an adult cartoon, read these quotes from the Powerpuff Girls.
