    Rick and Morty horror short is coming to help tide fans over until the Season 6 premiere. 

    Summer's Sleepover, a trippy claymation short from Lee Hardcastle, sees an "unexpected guest" liven up Summer's (Spencer Grammer) sleepover party. The short will premiere on October 30 on Adult Swim and be available to stream on HBO Max and YouTube the following day. 

    The horror short arrives ahead of Rick and Morty's sixth season, which premieres in November. Starring Justin Roiland, Sarah Chalke, Chris Parnell, and the aforementioned Grammer, Rick and Morty centers on the adventures of eccentric, sociopathic scientist Rick (Roiland) and his grandson Morty (also Roiland). 

    Season 6 will pick up where we last left this crazy cast of characters, "worse for wear and down on their luck," per the official synopsis. "Will they manage to bounce back for more adventures? Or will they get swept up in an ocean of piss! Who knows?! Piss! Family! Intrigue! A bunch of dinosaurs! More piss! Another can't miss season of your favorite show."

    Summer's Sleepover debuts on Adult Swim October 30.

    Rick and Morty Season 6 premieres on Adult Swim November 20. Seasons 1-5 are streaming on HBO Max.
