The latest development out of the “Rick and Morty” season 3 production suggests that fans would not have to wait long for the return of their favorite dynamic duo.
Courtesy of show writers Erica Carbiener and Sarah Rosbe who made a guesting stint on the Chicks Who Script podcast, it was revealed that writing-wise, the series was already four weeks done by the time of the interview, which took place on Sept. 28. On top of that, the writers said that they were just waiting for Bardel Entertainment to finish with animation.
What is more interesting however is that they also shared that personally, they think that a December release date for “Rick and Morty” season 3 is possible but also disclaimed that nothing is set in stone yet.
All throughout the last couple of months, folks involved in the series have been mum about the progress of their work causing fans to worry about season 3 not debuting before the year ends. It can be remembered that creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon previously stated that their target release date was in 2016 and after several guessing games, it seems like they are pushing through with their original timeline.
Meanwhile, Carbiener and Rosbe also talked about the experience of working on a hit animated series like “Rick and Morty.” Harmon recently revealed that due to their goal of having more diversity in the writers’ room, they took in a couple of new female collaborators. He reasoned that they have been clamoring for a gender-balanced workplace that hopefully will also resonate in the narrative that they are telling.
“You learn so much on that show, because they fit 20 pounds of story in a five pound bag. On other shows what would be an entire episode will be the first two or three minutes,” Carbiener shared. “So you have to learn how to come up with a lot of story, fast, and how to make it all turn and tie up right.”
“And work with sci-fi tropes, but find a completely unique thing that no ‘Star Trek’ episode has ever done in the history of time kind of thing,” Rosbe chimed in. “So it was constantly twisting, twisting, twisting everything.”
