“Rick and Morty” season 3 is well underway with its recording sessions, as previously shared by the folks at Adult Swim. This gives fans hope that the show will eventually make its grand return before 2016’s end instead of next year.
A snapshot of the production has been uploaded via the show’s official Twitter account with the caption “Recording! Season three! Get ready!!” This rouses rumors that “Rick and Morty” will eventually hit their season 3 target release date which should be later this year. This significantly decreases the wait time for fans who originally thought that the animated show will debut its upcoming installment in 2017. Unfortunately, the official date still remains under wraps.
Regardless of when “Rick and Morty” returns, it appears that the folks over at Adult Swim are making sure that it will be worth the wait for its loyal viewers. Creator Justin Roiland, together with his creative partner Dan Harmon, sat down with Collider earlier this month to promote the home video release of the series. Along the way, they gave some updates on how the production is going for season 3.
“We’re deep into the season and I always like to underpromise and overdeliver but I do really feel like, the episodes we’ve got in the hopper are some of the best we’ve ever done, I think,” Roiland said with hope. Despite this he adds that while they think they are doing a good job inside the studio, the real gauge with be fan reaction once season 3 finally rolls out.
“You know you never really know until they get out into the world. It’s always surprising to see what people react to and what episodes are people’s favorites and stuff because we can never predict that internally but we’ve got some great stuff this season that we’re really, really excited about,” he added.
There are a lot of things to find out once the upcoming iteration of “Rick and Morty” breaks ground. One of which would be the uncertain fate of Rick as he surrendered himself to the galactic federation behind his family’s back. Rumor has it also that the show will touch ground on Earth, more specifically in the tropical paradise of Hawaii.
