Television’s favorite alcoholic grandpa and grandson are back in action. The adult-animated sitcom Rick and Morty is headed back into outer space and other dimensions in the upcoming season 6, created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon.
Part science-fiction, part family comedy, Rick and Morty spices up the classic All-American sitcom formula with intergalactic adventures.
Roiland is a seasoned voice actor and comedian, and he’s also lent his voice in the past to the Cartoon Network series Adventure Time and the Disney Channel series, Gravity Falls. Chris Parnell (Saturday Night Live) voices the cynical, often berated Jerry, Spencer Grammer (Greek) voices the angsty Summer, and Sarah Chalke (Scrubs) voices the uptight mother and veterinarian, Beth.
Chalke is best known for her work on the NBC sitcom Scrubs and the Netflix original series Firefly Lane, and Parnell was featured on Saturday Night Live from 1998-2012, in addition to guest starring on 30 Rock as fan favorite Doctor Leo Spaceman.
Rick and Morty premiered on Adult Swim in 2013, and every season has been both a critical and commercial success with millions of viewers tuning in each week to watch the Smiths go on intergalactic quests amidst family dinners and math tests.
As the September 4 premiere date fast approaches, here’s all the information you need to tune in and watch.

Additional Titles like Rick and Morty to Stream
If you want the exact same formula that Rick and Morty adhere to, try the Hulu original animated sitcom Solar Opposites (2020-present). Also created by Rick and Morty creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon, monsters and outer space adventures decorate every episode as a crew of aliens crash down onto earth and are forced to adjust to living life amongst humans after evacuating their planet amidst destruction.
Spiteful leader of the group Korvo Solo-Opposites is voiced by Roiland, Thomas Middleditch voices Korvo’s evacuation partner Terry Solar-Opposites, Sean Giambrone voices the alien bounty hunter Yumyulack Solar-Opposites, Mary Mack voices Terry’s kindhearted replicant Jesse Solar-Opposites, and Sagan McMahan voices the Pupa. Just debuting its entire season on Hulu on July 13, 2022, season 4 will debut sometime in 2023.
The Orville (2017-present) is like a comedic Star Trek with Seth MacFarlane at the helm. A love letter to the iconic series that began airing in the 60s, MacFarlane has always been vocal about his love for Star Trek, and it shines through in the series.
Adorned with Star Trek-like outfits in a sleek spaceship called the Orville, MacFarlane stars as Ed Mercer, the lead officer heading various missions in the 25th century amongst various planets and dimensions. Sometimes part spoof, part comedy-drama, Adrianne Palicki co-stars as Mercer’s ex-wife and Head Officer on the Orville, and the duo alongside the rest of the crew go on space adventures exploring new planets to varying degrees of success.
Being bad has never looked more fun than in the HBO Max DC animated series, Harley Quinn (2019-present). Kaley Cuoco voices the titular role and fits the character like a glove with her shrill laughter and lively insults hurled a mile a minute as she brings the iconic villain to life. Lake Bell voices her partner in crime and love interest Poison Ivy, and they lead a band of fellow villainous misfits who just want as much glory as famous big shots like the Joker and The Penguin.
Harley recruits a crew of B-team of forgotten villains, with Ron Funches as King Shark, Tony Hale as Doctor Psycho, Jason Alexander as Sy Borgman, and Alan Tudyk as Clayface, Joker, and various other characters.
