Rick and Morty season 2 ended back in October 2015 and since then, fans have been eagerly waiting for the next season to arrive. However, fans currently don’t know exactly when the next season of their favorite series will arrive. In fact, the creator of the show, Dan Harmon doesn’t even know when it will release. He even claimed that the delay is happening because of him.
Dan Harmon Says He F***ed Up
During an interview at the Sundance Film Festival, Dan Harmon was asked regarding the delay of Rick and Morty season 3. Dan stated that he currently doesn’t have a release date of the third season. Not because he was not allowed to reveal it, but because it was in Adult Swim’s hands. He further stated that the delay is happening because of him and that he and Justin f***ed up. According to him, writing the story of Rick and Morty season 3 keeps on taking time, and he doesn’t know why.
“I don’t have a release date for Season 3. It’s not that I know it and I’m not allowed to say it; it’s [Adult Swim’s] domain. What I will tell you is it’s late because of us, it’s late because of me. If Justin were here he’d agree.” He continued “He and I would go, ‘Yeah, we fucked up,’ and it’s hard to put your finger on how we fucked up. ‘Rick and Morty’ keeps taking longer and longer to write, and I don’t know why.”
Rick And Morty Season 3 To Arrive In March 2017?
Along with this, at the end of Rick and Morty season 2, which was in October 2015, Mr. Poopybutthole claimed that the third season won’t happen before a year and a half. This indicated that fans won’t be able to see Rick and Morty season 3 before March 2017. As the much rumored December 2016 release date of Rick and Morty season 3 didn’t happen because of various reasons, fans are now believing that Mr. Poopybutthole’s prediction is going to be true. If this is the case, then fans will be able to enjoy new episodes of Rick and Morty after only a month. On September 28, 2016, some writers of the show confirmed that episodes of Rick and Morty season 3 were completed and were sent to the production house and animation studio for review.
Time Skip Not Happening In Rick And Morty Season 3
Some time ago, it was also reported that the creators of the show decided to skip showing Rick’s escape from the Intergalactic Federation in Rick and Morty season 3. Instead, in season 3, Rick will be seen enjoying time with his family. However, as fans wanted to see how Morty and Summer manage to help Rick escape, the time skip might not happen at all. Justin Roiland also claimed that all of the episodes of Rick and Morty season 3 will be based on what fans want.
Rick And Morty Season 3 Release Date
Rick and Morty season 3 is currently expected to arrive in March 2017. However, that will happen only if Mr. Poopybutthole’s prediction turns out to be true.
