Rick and Morty Season 3 isn’t due until late 2016, but the Adult Swim show’s Comic-Con panel on Friday hinted at what fans can expect from the next season when it premieres. Creator Dan Harmon, who fans know and love from not only Rick and Morty but his previous cult favorite show Community, promised a “twist that no one will see coming” as well as other surprises. Harmon was joined by co-creator Justin Roiland and writer Ryan Ridley, so there was plenty of insight to go around when it comes to what might be around the river bend when the show kicks off again.
Some things that the panel would confirm about the next season is picking up right where Season 2 left off, which means that viewers will still be left stressing about Rick being in jail and whether or not he will be freed. Unfortunately for those inquiring minds hoping that the creators would spill an accidental spoiler or expound upon what the “twist” might be, everyone on stage kept mum. However, Roiland and Harmon promised that the Season 3 premiere is a “really cool episode” even if there aren’t currently any details to back that up.
