How the dysfunctional duo work their way out of the mess remains to be seen, but expect more relentless mocking of Jerry, poop jokes aplenty and a fair helping of dangerous explosions.
Read on to find out how to watch Rick and Morty season 6 no matter where you are in the world with free viewing options in certain countries.
