How can I watch Rick and Morty season 6?
Rick and Morty season 6 will be available to watch on E4 at the same time they are dropping in America.
It’s unlikely many people in the UK will be getting up for the 4am showing, so all episodes will be available to watch on catch up on All 4.
Episodes will also be repeated on Sundays at a more suitable time.
When will Rick and Morty season 6 be on Netflix?
The new season will not be dropping on Netflix anytime soon.
The streaming service will get the new episodes, but only after they’ve been shown on E4, as Channel 4 has exclusive rights in the UK.
A similar thing happened with Rick and Morty season 5, which debuted on E4 in June 2021, it took six months for the season to drop on Netflix in March 2022.
If the same time scale applies, fans could expect to watch Rick and Morty season 6 on Netflix UK in summer 2023.
