Rick and Morty Season 4 Episode 6 release date might get delayed over the Coronavirus outbreak as per some new reports. The Covid-19 infection has turned into a global pandemic and it has halted production of every movie and TV series.

Fans have been waiting for more than four months since the last Rick and Morty episode aired and Season 4 went into a hiatus. It was estimated that Rick and Morty Season 4 Episode 6 will release alongside Disney’s Mulan remake. But the movie has been delayed by Coronavirus pandemic and the same thing can happen with Rick and Morty animated series.
Rick and Morty Season 4 Episode 6 Release with Mulan Movie
Rick and Morty have an old connection with the movie Mulan as they made a reference in the last season for the McDonald’s limited Szechuan sauce which was released with 1992 animated Mulan movie. It has led to speculations that Adult Swim might do something similar and have another gag in Rick and Morty Season 4 about the new live-action Mulan.
McDonalds has brought Szechuan Sauce back, but currently only in New Zealand. McDonalds may be testing the water to bring back the sauce to the states that nearly caused a fandom apocalypse, because Rick and Morty is set to return soon and the Mulan Movie debuts this month. pic.twitter.com/gs29m8p1Me

Coronavirus outbreak has halted filming for every show and movie in the United States and even Rick and Morty series is affected. It means that Rick and Morty S04E06 release date could be delayed further due to Coronavirus and fans will have to wait a bit more for the animated sci-fi series to resume.
