Has ‘Rick And Morty’ Season 3 Premiere Been Pushed Again?

Twitter tends to turn the best of us into the worst versions of ourselves, at least grammatically speaking. This past week, Twitter went on kind of a diluded rampage/depression as the creators of the popular Adult Swim cartoon, Rick And Morty, revealed some potentially disheartening information regarding the show’s highly anticipated season 3 return.

The tweet, posted from the official Rick And Morty account, revealed the shocking and misleading announcement back in June. Most fans have taken it as meaning the series will not premiere in late July as originally expected, while others have been led to believe it means the show will be upgrading to hour long episodes instead of their usual half hour segments.

Most fans, like myself, don’t appear to care how long it takes for season 3 to arrive, just so long as it does in fact arrive. In the season 2 finale, Mr. Poopy Butthole revealed the return would take a year and a half longer than normal. Hopefully that is not the case. I need something to distract me during this excrutiantingly long summer. I’m sure we all could use some kind of TV fix keeping us busy while we wait another whole freaking year for Game of Thrones to come back.

Creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland have promised the third series will be “the best the writers have ever done!” Considering how well and beloved the first two seasons are, I am supremely stoked for what lies in store when the show returns to TV screens in late July. I do certainly hope for another epic showdown between Rick and Zeep Xanflorp, played by the impeccable comedic talent that is Stephen Colbert.

Rumored episodes are said to include another rendition of Interdimensional Cable, Evil Morty, and a surprising and or heartbreaking backstory for that of Rick’s ex-wife and Morty’s grandmother. I wouldn’t at all be surprised if the show decided to take it to another super emotional place, especially considering the uber feels episode they left us with for the season two finale.
