‘Rick and Morty' Season 3 News: The 3rd Season Will Premiere Sooner [Video]


"Rick and Morty" Season 3 will return earlier than expected to Cartoon Network's Adult Swim before the end of 2016.

In addition to the delight of fans during the Magic City Comic, Con last January where "Rick and Morty," series co-creator Dan Harmon revealed that there will be more episodes that will come later this year. Season 3. Not only will season 3 be coming by December this year, it will also have 14 episodes.

Dubbed by Harmon as the "most epic" season to date amid cancellation rumors, reported Movie News Guide. Dan Guterman has confirmed though that the animation for "Rick and Morty" Season 3 is already half done, and as reported will have 14 episodes in total. However, fans are in doubt if ever they can pull off animating seven more episodes to make it to the December deadline they set for themselves last January.

The cancellation rumors are partly due to some parents concern that the context of "Rick and Morty" might be too dark for children. Nonetheless, the shows strong following caused it to receive a near-perfect score from most review sites.

Refusing to reveal more details, Harmon promised followers of "Rick and Morty" that the cliffhanger back in Season 2 would be resolved in as few episodes as possible. Writer Erica Rosbe said that the season is already written but the animation process has been slow, Cinema Blend reported.

Animators of the show use an unorthodox method wherein they employ a process of retro-scripting. Animators worked with primarily ad-libbed dialogue. This should not surprise fans that it's primarily this method is what is keeping up production of "Rick and Morty." Furthermore, retro-scripting is one of the major reasons why Justin Roiland mumbles and stutters when he does Rick's voice. They say, "It makes for great comedy, but its hell on the show's animators."

"Rick and Morty" is expected to premiere this December on the Cartoon Network's Adult Swim.
