It has already been a long wait for the fans of the sci-fi adult animated series “Rick and Morty.” However, the show’s co-creator made some remarks lately, suggesting that viewers would have to wait a little longer.
Dan Harmon, who co-created the series with Justin Roiland, spoke with IndieWire about the uncertainty of the release date of Adult Swim’s series. He apologized and candidly admitted that he was one of the reasons for the delay.
“I don’t have a release date for Season 3. What I will tell you is it’s late because of us, it’s late because of me,” Harmon asserted. He claimed that Roiland would agree with him.
“‘Rick and Morty’ keeps taking longer and longer to write, and I don’t know why,” he further asserted.
The last episode of “Rick and Morty” season 2 was aired in October 2015. Harmon detailed that they were having trouble finalizing and completing the plot for the next season. “We have fights all the time and then we have fights about why we’re having fights,” he stated.
Harmon did not disclose any hints regarding the storyline of the upcoming season, but he specified that they were “doing something different.”
Meanwhile, there are speculations of a crossover between “Rick and Morty” and “Gravity Falls” since Roiland and Alex Hirsch (creator of “Gravity Falls”) are longtime pals. It has long been rumored that the two cartoon series shared the same universe.
In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Hirsch acknowledged that he and Roiland had been talking about doing their own “weird TV shows.”
“We started putting little easter eggs in our shows that sort of connected the two. Our motivation for that is primarily to freak people out and blow their minds,” Hirsch said.
The crossover may be the “something different” that Harmon was talking about. As of this time, no official airdate is given for “Rick and Morty” season 3.
