In the title compound, C(12)H(10)N(2)S(6), all non-H atoms, except for those in the ethyl groups, lie in the same non-crystallographic plane, with a r.m.s. deviation of 0.0366 (5) Å. In the crystal structure, mol-ecules are linked through weak C-H⋯N hydrogen bonds between methyl and cyano groups, forming centrosymmetric dimers. The dimers are arranged along the a axis, due to inter-molecular N⋯S [3.337 (4) Å] inter-actions.
