"Rick and Morty" Season 3 Spoilers
According to series creator Dan Harmon, the Beth and Jerry divorce bit was originally meant to run as a running gag for the show. However, they seem to have a change of plans. In a recent commentary track for the "Little Rick" episode, Dan Harmon said, "I thought that Jerry and Beth getting a divorce would be like Kenny being killed in South Park, like, when we first conceived the show... that it would never run out of shelf life that that was the kind of joke of like, oh all our parents were about to get a divorce,"
Dan Harmon further added, "But, I think Millennial viewers are like, 'I don't understand, why don't they just recycle more?' So, season three we kind of move the Beth story forward." To which co-creators Ryan Ridley and Justin Roiland responded: "Spoilers."
For fans who had been following the show, Beth and Jerry have been threatening each other with divorce since the first season. And with the recent revelations, it looks like they will finally do it. Even more, Beth is also rumored to have a new love interest.
The show runners have not released an exact air date yet, but it looks like Dan Harmon and his co-creators will surely live up to their promise to release "Rick and Morty" season 3 by December 2016.
