It looks like the Rick and Morty Season 3 release date will be pushed to 2017. This is unlike previous reports that said it will premiere before the end of the year. Adult Swim has not announced any details on when specifically they can release the highly anticipated third season of the animated sitcom.
According to recent reports, the popular animated series will premiere in March next year. Reddit user PopDavid, who’s claiming to work on Rick and Morty, confirmed that the new season will be delayed to 2017.
What’s delaying Rick and Morty Season 3 release date?
The creators have just finished writing all the scripts for the series last week. According to a tweet by writer Dan Guterman, they only finished one full animation for one episode. Given that information, it is quite obvious that there is no way Rick and Morty Season 3 release date will be this year. Especially since most series are taking their usual Christmas breaks already.

The critically-acclaimed sci-fi series never hesitated from doing something unfamiliar. It has been praised by critics and viewers alike for not being afraid to tackle taboo storylines to deliver a message to its viewers.
In Season 2, Rick was seen being sent to prison after surrendering himself to the Galactic Federation. Many fan theories see Season 3 going to the route of Rick’s eventual escape from prison. Still, because Rick and Morty never really cared about social and political correctness, it is highly likely that the next season will begin with Rick going on with his life as if nothing happened in Season 2.
Much is still unknown about Rick and Morty Season 3
Expectations that the sci-fi animated series will premiere this year was based on the statement made by co-creator, Dan Harmon. He said earlier this year that the new season will air within 2016. This was backed up by writers, Erica Rosbe and Sarah Carbiener. They confirmed in September that they have already completed the scripts for Season 3.
These details led many to believe that Rick and Morty Season 3 release date will be sometime in November or December. It is since the creators and writers hinted that the series is already production-ready.
