Season 5 of Rick and Morty ended with The Citadel being destroyed taking the Central Finite Curve with it, stranding our heroes in space as Evil Morty made his way towards a different universe where Rick wasn't the smartest person in existence.

Still with us? Good. That would seem to put an end to Rick C-137's ability to hop between different dimensions, something that could turn the entire series on its head. Of course, nothing in this show is ever straightforward, but with all the regulars looking likely to return and each episode title a pun on a famous movie, it's going to be a lot of fun finding out.

Watch Rick and Morty season 6 from abroad using a VPN

Even if you have an All 4 account, you won't be able to stream Rick and Morty when outside the UK. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. It creates a private connection between your device and the internet. There are lots of VPNs to choose from, but we think ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) is one of the very best...
