Rick and Morty season 3 trailer and release date revealed
A release date and trailer have finally been unveiled for the third season of Rick and Morty.
After months of speculation, Adult Swim has confirmed that all-new episodes of the hilarious animated series will arrive July 30 at 11:30pm ET. The latest installment is expected to consist of 14 episodes and will of course feature more bizarre adventures for Rick Sanchez and his grandson Morty Smith.
The release date accompanied the first season three trailer which you can watch below:
“Welcome to the darkest year of our adventures,” Rick says. “Only a show this smart could be this stupid.”
Co-creator Dan Harmon previously explained of the delay on the new season. He said: “I understand and we are flattered that in an information vacuum, with the show so late, any morsel of info is going to have huge weight. But the truth is not dramatic. It’s quite boring. We love our show. It’s a weird show that we struggle to not overthink OR underthink. As for now, they’re drawing it.
“We don’t update on exactly where every episode is in pipeline for two reasons (uh oh sub enumeration): One is that we want you harassing the bosses as opposed to hard-at-work artists and editors, or writers that finished months ago. The other is that it is out of our jurisdiction to discuss schedule. That’s Adult Swim’s biz. Totally unrelated. Hence the info shortage.
“So, I’m sorry I can’t say “we fractured a creative valve in sector three” or “it’s Paul’s fault. GET HIM!” No hidden truth. We slow. Sorry. Part of what I was trying to express is that WE would sit and ponder, what’s the problem here, how can we write faster, why we so slow? And then we’d go “what made us faster in season one” and then we’d go “we didn’t sit here talking about this, let’s just do this,” etc.”
