'Rick and Morty' season 3 release date rumors: Will the hit cartoon be back on air before the year ends?


Production for the third season of “Rick and Morty” has been in full swing since earlier this summer but after being very active in promotional activities starting with this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, the people behind the animated series have become eerily silent. Given this, fans are relegated to guessing as to what stage the show is already in and if there is any chance that it will somehow premiere before the year ends.

The past two seasons of the Adult Swim program had a fantastic run. And so much of it is because of the kind of storytelling creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon incorporated in every episode. Due to this, its loyal fans base carried over from their debut iteration to its follow-up, on top of gaining new fans along the way. Understandably so, this definitely mounts pressure on “Rick and Morty” to nail their landing for the third time and although it is quite a feat to achieve, it is not necessarily impossible.

A recently published article by Movie Pilot chalks up the fascination to the universe travelling duo of Rick and Morty to the show’s boundless possibilities. Even right now, with two full seasons under their belt, it is still difficult to theorize what could happen in the forthcoming installment as anything can literally pulled right into it. Fans already know that season 2 ended in a bit of a cliffhanger when Rick surrendered himself to the intergalactic police behind his family’s back. That premise alone can be a gold mine for possible plot stories to be eventually incorporated.

Despite the seemingly plentiful number of interviews they have done over the summer, the writing duo has not revealed anything specific in regard to where they are going for “Rick and Morty” season 3. However, the show has been forthcoming that their newest offering is the best thus far in their created lore, so much so that it will be worth the wait. On top of that, they might also be adopting a more serialized version of storytelling instead of episodic.

With the multitude of things that “Rick and Morty” might be trying to accomplish for their third season, a delayed airing could very well be given leeway. If the show does not make its return in the remainder of the year as their premiere pattern suggests, fans can look out for it sometime in early 2017.
