After much waiting and a few delays, which Dan Harmon laid out in full detail over the weekend, Rick and Morty finally has a Season 3 premiere date. The third season of the beloved animated series will roll out on Adult Swim at the end of July, officially premiering at 11:30pm on Sunday July 30th. The date was announced at a special livestream event with co-creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland, hosted by Mr. Goldenfold’s voice Brandon Johnson.
In Harmon’s Twitter explanation for delays over the weekend, he dismissed any rumors that he and Roiland had been feuding and therefore taking even longer to write and craft the next season of the show. While fans got the season 3 premiere on April 1, they’ve been eager to get another full run of episodes since season two ended back in October of 2015.
According to Deadline, a trailer was also included in the announcement and presentation. The line “Only a show this smart could be so stupid” prefaced the sizzle reel (watch below), which should have fans even more anticipatory about the big day. Only one short month until everyone can finally feast their eyes on new episodes of Harmon and Roiland’s humor and pathos.
