Abstract We present off-shell formulations of six-dimensional supersymmetric matter and gauge theories in superspace. We construct the maximally supersymmetric YM theory in terms of d = 6 superfields. From various on-shell superfields we construct several versions of the irreducible 40 + 40 component spin-2 supercurrent, including the superconformal supercurrent. We also discuss extended supersymmetry in terms of six-dimensional extended superfields.
