Rick and Morty season three just got a release date and trailer during a livestream hosted by Adult Swim with creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland.
It has been over one year and eight months since the last episode of Rick and Morty hit the screens, leaving hardcore fans anxious for any news about the third season. So much so that there was speculation over Harmon and Roiland’s friendship, which was quickly put to rest with a series of “hungover” tweets released a few days ago.
“Justin and I are very regretful about the season taking way too long. I want to explain “what happened” because it’s way less dramatic than you might ever imagine. Post internet TV audiences are so used to finding out there’s an intriguing/confusing/intense reason 4 delays. And Christ knows if you’ve ever seen MY name on the internet I’ve only got myself to blame for an association with intrigue/confusion/drama. But the truth in this case is so very boring. I will put it to you as objectively as I can, though we aren’t talking about an auto plant. The reason S3 took long is because it took long to write, because it was S3 of a show that we were scared to make worse than S2 or S1,” said Roiland in a string of tweets.
“As I speak, more articles are coming out about me and Justin fighting. Because it’s a less boring reason for a season to take long, We’d be all too eager to share it with you. Also, that’s not what would make the show slow down! Fighting probably would have been a good idea, it might have sped us up. So that’s it. I shouldn’t have started a thread when I need to pack for the airport, but that’s it. We took too long writing. Totes regrets.”
The third season of the animated comedy Rick and Morty will hit the small-screen Sunday, July 30, 11:30 PM on Adult Swim. Check out the trailer below:
