Rick and Morty is one of those television shows that’s captured the imagination of adults around the world. With its blend of mature humor and themes, the show has developed a hardcore following. Yet its been a while since fans got their hands on a new season – going all the way back to December 2015. Now though fans seemingly won’t have long to wait – if IMDB’s recent updates are to be believed.
According to Enstarz, the IMDB episode listing for Rick and Morty Season 3 has appeared somewhat prematutrely. The popular TV and movie database website seemingly confirms that the first episode of the show’s third season will premiere on April 24.
Sadly the listing doesn’t provide much more beyond these details, including episode synopsis’s and descriptions.
At least we know that the third season is coming sooner rather than later. The shows creator, Dan Harmon, told Polygon a few weeks back;
“Here’s how cartoons work. First, you write them, then you draw them. For a really long time. Everything needs to be on paper, so you can see it. If all I do is write it, and then put it on TV, it’ll look like a script, instead of Rick and Morty, which you seem to like. So when you ask where it is, the answer is: they’re drawing it,”
Many fans have been pondering just how the show will get itself out of the hole it placed itself in. The second season ended with Rick handing himself into the Galactic Federation, awaiting a life sentence in galactic prision. Harmon confirmed that the show’s upcoming third season will pick up following the events of that season finale, but reassured fans that it won’t be the overall theme of the entire season;
“I don’t think anybody wants to do a third season that spends a whole bunch of episodes dealing with a situation that we created at the end of the second season… So I think that’s a non-spoiler way of saying things should be okay pretty quickly.”
