Rick and Morty Season 3 still doesn’t have a premiere date (the best guess is looking less and less likely). Does it help to know the creators are exactly aware of how impatient you are for the premiere of new episodes?
Dan Harmon, co-creator of Rick and Morty with Justin Roiland, recorded a new episode of his podcast, Harmontown, at SXSW 2017. After a protracted dissection of an airport lounge encounter (“I don’t have to prepare for this stuff, there’s a rapist in the White House,” he said in his defense), Harmon’s co-host Jeff Davis invited on-stage an audience member to discuss the movie Get Out. Spotting his Rick and Morty t-shirt, Harmon took the opportunity apologize for the Season 3 delay, telling the fan, “sorry about Season 3, we’re drawing it.”
‘Rick And Morty’ Season 3 Release Date Cast
Earlier it was said if you’ve been checking back here for updates, you know that Rick and Morty season 3 is already written. The creatives are waiting on the animation team to finish their work so we can all enjoy new episodes. That reality is lost on some fans and question-askers, who are badgering co-creator Dan Harmon about the status of the new season.
Harmon went on to clarify these remarks in a long Twitter rant that assured us there is no beef in the studio and the premiere date is at the mercy of Adult Swim. Meanwhile, Adult Swim released an interactive website to distract fans with a wormhole of viral Rick and Morty universe web content. Go find your favorite #KlaargWorthy content, ya Shimshams!
At the end of season two, Mr. Poopybutthole said Rick and Morty season 3 wouldn’t happen for another year and a half… so March 2017. After targeting the end of 2016, production delays pushed Rick and Morty season 3 closer to that butthole’s prediction.
A few other Rick and Morty writers confirmed that episodes were completed as of Sept. 28th, pending review from their animation studio. At this point, it seems as though Rick and Morty season 3 will release in early 2017 but now it is delayinh. Damn you, Mr. Poopybutthole!
While Adult Swim is still mum on the return date for Rick and Morty season 3, they did offer us Rick and Morty claymation spots to hold us over. It’s not enough. We’re itching for new episodes, brah!
