The sixth season of The Ren & Stimpy Show began on November 15, 2017 with the episode "Ren-Incarnation", and ended on April 10, 2018 with the episode "Eat Humble Pie".

The first season produced since its 1995 cancellation, this was also the first season not to air on Nickelodeon or any network owned by Viacom (now known as ViacomCBS), airing on Cartoon Network instead. It was also the first season with the involvement of creator John Kricfalusi since his 1992 firing, as his 2013 short Cans Without Labels was universally acclaimed; as with the original, the revival is produced by Spümcø, which was reformed the previous year. Co-creator Bob Camp also returned to the show, as did Billy West (the original voice of Stimpy), and many original cast and crew members such as co-developers Jim Smith and Lynne Naylor, storyboard artist Chris Reccardi, animation director Bob Jaques, writer and director Vincent Waller, and background designer Bill Wray. Jaques' company Carbunkle Cartoons also returned to the series.

Finally, George Liquor was once again made a recurring character, voiced by Kricfalusi due to the 2010 death of his voice actor, Michael Pataki; Kricfalusi had voiced George in various projects since Pataki's death.

In 2013, the short Cans Without Labels was released.

Three new seasons were greenlit immediately after the acquisition, and
