Who is Gene in Rick and Morty?
After a long time, fans are getting excited for the new season of Rick and Morty, and all the credit goes to the new trailer. The new look into season six of the show looks extremely promising, and fans are really happy to see the series get back on track after a few underwhelming seasons.
But the new trailer has invoked a lot of curiosity in fans, making them wonder who Gene is. Well, much to the surprise of the audience, Gene is not a new character but an old one. First appearing in season 3, episode 5, The Whirly Dirly Conspiracy. The Smiths’ next-door neighbors are Gene and his family. Gene is a nice, mild-mannered, everyday Joe.
Despite his neighborly disposition, he is regarded as a nosy neighbor and is screamed at and cursed at for just showing concern or providing assistance to his neighbors. He has probably become accustomed to Rick’s bizarre inventions and their effects. Nothing appears to surprise him anymore.
Over the years, Gene has made appearances here and there in multiple episodes of the show. However, he is not a major character, and audiences should not expect him to play any crucial role in this year’s season also.
