Despite season 4 not being released too long ago, it seems the writers of Rick and Morty are still hard at work.
Dan Harmon revealed that they’re writing as far forward as season six, which is an exciting announcement for fans, because that means there is plenty of content set to be released in the future.

Today we Zoom a special reunion table read of the Community episode in which Pierce bestows frozen sperm from his grave. The incredible Walton Goggins can’t make it so Pedro Pascal will play Pierce’s lawyer. He’s on some Disney show where Boba Fett’s in college with Yoda’s niece. In keeping with that theme, the part of Troy will be played by Lando. Yes, for real, the whole gang is back together. We got Horse Girl, we got Card Shark, we got ‘em all. I don’t know the details of when it will be available, but don’t worry about missing it, we’re doing it for you. Also streaming it live could never happen because we have to edit out @yvettenicolebrown’s rants about storming Area 51. One more magical thing about today: the script we’re reading, Cooperative Polygraphy, is by Community and Rick and Morty alum Alex Rubens, who is BACK at RaM writing on season 6. He was wearing a suit in yesterday’s Zoom session because during lunch he was attending a Zoom funeral. Not a joke. Hard to tell jokes from life these days. These are odd times but everybody that worked on the show has been feeling the love and joy from all the rookie and veteran Community fans binging the show on Netflix. I’m going to go take the first pre-table read shower of my life. Sincere love to the fans and the cast, thanks for the best pre-Cody years of my life #sixseasonsandamovie

Hopefully, this reflects what was said earlier this year, about the show having shorter breaks, which fans seemed to be very happy about.
Parnell, who plays Jerry in the show, said: “[Harmon and co-creator Justin Roiland] wanted some job security, and they wanted to know that the show was going to be around for a while so that they and the writers could get into some sort of momentum.
“We’ll see less lengthy breaks between seasons going forward because of that. And it’s very gratifying to know we’re going to have all those episodes. Hopefully, Jerry will be around for the duration. You never know.”
The newest episode of the show is set to air tonight on E4, despite airing in the US 4 days prior on the 10th. And as mentioned earlier the show is notorious for having big breaks between seasons. It seems like all good TV have extensive breaks between seasons… but why it has to be this way I’ll never know. So, personally, I wouldn’t even expect season FIVE to make an appearance this year, especially with everything going on the world. But for now, turn the channel to E4 later tonight and watch the latest episode.
