The previous rumors were saying that Season 3 of the American adult animated TV series “Rick and Morty” would return to Adult Swim in December this year.
However, with less than two weeks to go, before the month sets in, an official statement or announcement has yet to come from co-showrunners Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland or the network.
Thus, latest rumors are now rife that “Rick and Morty” Season 3 might not make it in time for December so it is likely to come out on Adult Swim early next year, reports Jobs & Hire.
The last indirect but otherwise unofficial statement from Dan Harmon was when he said recently that they are working as fast as they can to finish up, which may have meant that a December 2016 release date for “Rick and Morty” Season 3 seems a bit of a stretch.
It has been reported a few weeks ago that writing and animation works for “Rick and Morty” Season 3 has already been completed and the show was just waiting for the green light from its Canadian studio.
It was writer Erica Rosbe who made the disclosure during a ‘Chicks Who Write’ podcast recently, reports Game & Guide.
Rosbe’s revelation was somehow validated by executive producer Dan Guterman who tweeted that the first episode of “Rick and Morty” Season 3 was already completed but took an indirect swipe at the female writer by adding that Erica Rosbe just could not shut up about it.
Heightening the excitement
A few weeks ago, Adult Swim decided to heighten the excitement on the popular adult animated TV series by releasing the Halloween special “Rick and Morty: The Non-Canonical Adventures.”
While the special is a far cry from what the new episodes of “Rick and Morty” Season 3 will bring, but the stop motion animation was more than enough to further whet the appetites of fans for their favorite cartoon on TV.
The Halloween special features what Rick and Morty would do with some of the most popular movies so fans had a great time once again watching it.
While there is still no official word yet from Adult Swim or co-executive producers Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon about the possible plotline of “Rick and Morty” Season 3, reports are now saying that it would be a far-reaching season.
The third season of “Rick and Morty” shall reportedly contain extra two scenes which are a reward for fans. The show is also expected to bring back Krombopolus Michael.
In addition, the loss of Mrs. Sanchez back in Season 2 has been the best mystery for the show and that the answer would be revealed in the upcoming third season.
Although showrunners Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland have yet to say anything official about Season 3 of “Rick and Morty,” their silence is probably meant to avoid spoilers from coming out.
It can be recalled that before the show premiered its Season 2 last year, at least three episodes of “Rick and Morty” already made it online, much to the disappointment of Roiland and Harmon. They may be employing a different tact this time around.
Right on the money
Mr. Poopybutthole, a fan-favorite character in “Rick and Morty” said last year that Season 3 of the TV series shall come out exactly one year and a half after the Season 2 finale.
It seems that the December release of Season 3 of “Rick and Morty” is true to the promise of Mr. Poopybutthole. Picking up from the cliffhanger of the Season 2 finale, the Season 3 will focus on Morty trying to help out his uncle Rick from detention in an intergalactic prison.
There are also reports stating that “Rick and Morty” Season 3 shall have four exciting episodes when it premieres this December, which could be a hint that the TV series could air in the first week of December.
