Rick and Morty: Character Helps Answer Season 6 Question

Rick and Morty is one of the most successful animations worldwide in recent years. The series created by Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland, launched in 2016, has 6 seasons, with the 6th part currently showing on Adult Swim and streaming HBO Max. However, one of the most celebrated seasons by fans was the fifth.


This because last season was responsible for changing the tone of Rick and Morty a bit, offering serialized narrative arcs (stories with sequence between episodes), a bigger development of Morty and some more serious issues. Something that was well received by fans.

The 6th season, however, broke the new pace of the plot and left some fans confused about the narrative proposal of the series. However, a new character, introduced in episode 7 (“Full Meta Jackrick”) of the current season, may explain this question a little.


Rick and Morty commenting on Rick and Morty?

Named Previous Leon, the character who appears in the premiere of Part 2 of Season 6 of Rick and Morty is described as someone who “makes you think more and more that your life has passed you by while feeding on your potential”.


Many took the figure, therefore, as a kind of meta-commentary on why the animation left the tone of season 5 behind. (at least for a while). This is because, by keeping the narrative more serious, the work could lose its funnier and crazier side, which is also loved by most viewers.

And this change also doesn’t mean the show can’t return to last season’s formula at some point. The important thing, in that sense, would be to keep the balance and play with all the qualities that made Rick an Morty the success that it is.
