Fans of Rick and Morty have been waiting a long, long time for the third season of Rick and Morty.
After co-creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland dropped the first episode of the new season as an April Fool’s Day surprise, it’s been relatively quiet. Harmon recently went on a Twitter rant explaining to fans why it’s taken so long to get the third season on the air, ensuring devotees that it was happening but adding that he and Roiland wanted to ensure it was just as good as the first two seasons.
Now, Adult Swim is teasing a special, mysterious Rick and Morty livestream and are withholding any information about what it could include. The only description Adult Swim has given is that it will be a night of live and spontaneous Rick and Morty-centric entertainment. This could mean anything from live script readings to improv. It could also mean, however, that Harmon and Roiland will release the second episode of the third season.
We know the third season is expected to air this summer thanks to a tweet from the official Rick and Morty account, but after 18 months since the season two finale, we still don’t have a premiere date.
Aaaaaand that's the way the news goes. Thanks for watching "The Rickshank Rickdemption"! More to come this summer...#rickisfree— Rick (((and Morty))) (@RickandMorty) April 2, 2017
Hopefully we’ll have answers to all of these questions by the time the livestream is over. Considering Harmon’s recent tweet storm, it seems very likely that we’ll get a sneak peek at what the season has to offer.
The “spontaneous” Rick and Morty livestream will take place on June 29 at 9 p.m. ET. It can be watched on Adult Swim’s main page.
