Mr. Poopybutthole warned viewers that the wait for the highly anticipated third season of “Rick and Morty” will be quite a while. It seems like his prediction may come true as people behind the production of the sci-fi animated series have reportedly entered the recording booth for the premiere episode only recently.
Writer Mike McNahan took it to his Twitter to reveal that they have began recording with the voice actors. In his series of tweets, he shared the cover of the script he wrote for the first episode with the title covered in green highlight. “Hey @RickandMorty am I allowed to say we’re recording episode 301 today?” he teased.
He also previously posted an image of the team while working and captioned it with, “In case you guys are wondering where all the midnight oil is going, we’re burning it for the 301 record tomorrow.”
During an interview with co-creator Dan Harmon back in December, he hinted that the adventures of the titular characters may be set in a new exciting location, “It’s time to demand that the network allows us to draw the characters going to Hawaii,” he said. However, it remains to be seen when will the new season hit the small screens with speculations suggesting April 2017.
As fans wait, they may get their hands on the confirmed new comic book in the franchise titled “Rick and Morty: Lil’ Poopy Superstar #1” that will be included in the Oni Press’ summer release. The synopsis simply reads, “Mr Poopybutthole is in trouble, and Summer is the only person who can help him!”
The narrative was written and illustrated by Sarah Graley in collaboration with Mildred Louis as the colorist and Marc Ellerby for the back-up comics. Pre-orders can now be made with the final order cutoff on June 20 for the price of $3.99. It is expected to arrive on stands beginning July 13.
