To mark the show's return, Adult Swim have released the cold open for episode 7 "Full Meta Jackrick", offering an insight of what chaotic adventures lay in wait for S6 viewers.

If you're away from home when season 6 of Rick and Morty airs, a VPN is your best option for tuning in. A VPN gets around geo-restrictions allowing you to access to Sling TV, Channel 4, etc. from anywhere as if you were in the UK. Try it for 30 days and get your money back if you're not happy.

How to use a VPN

There are three simple steps to follow:

1: Get a VPN installed. There are plenty of options, but we'd point you in the direction of ExpressVPN. There's even an offer on right now where you can get an additional three months FREE on a 12-month package and save 49% (opens in new tab). Happily, ExpressVPN is also compatible with pretty much every device you can think of too.

2: Connect to an appropriate server. Select a server located back in your home country and you'll be in and away. And if there's any sniff of an issue, Express's handy 24/7 live chat customer support can come to your rescue.

3: Head over to the service you want. Here you can shop as normal and once you set your location, visit the service you're interested in and sign up as normal or log in, and start watching. And if you don't get along with it, you can always cancel without issue within 30 days and get a full refund. Easy!

While the opening episode of season 6 aired at the same time in the UK as in the States via E4, there's a little bit of a wait in store for final episodes of the series. 

You'll need to have your spoiler guard up as new episodes will be shown a couple of days after the US at the new time of 9pm GMT on the channel on Tuesday's from November 22.

The positive part of that scheduling is that you'll still be able to watch 100% for free and won't need to worry about tuning in at uncomfortable viewing time in the early hours of the morning.

If that is far too early for you, don't worry. The show will be available to watch online via All 4 (opens in new tab) straight after it has aired.
