The latest update on "Rick and Morty" Season 3 is that it will air before the end of 2016, which means a December premiere. The show's writer said the cause of the delay was animation issues.
According to Cinemablend, there were reports that indicated the show would premiere before the end of 2016 on Adult Swim. But an exact date of the show's airing hasn't been given yet.
Writer Erica Rosbe updates that the "Rick and Morty" Season 3 has been completed "four weeks ago." The problem was animating the show, though, she did indicate that a portion has already been animated.
Creator Dan Harmon said that the "Rick and Morty" Season 3 animation team has taken its job seriously and the fans have regarded Rick and Morty for its high-quality production value. The show's animation process is difficult due to a process is known as "retroscripting", where animators work around primarily ad-libbed dialogue.
Once the animation is completed, the final step is for the screening of the show at the production offices. And if Rosbe's latest update about the "Rick and Morty" Season 3 are to be followed, it's safe to assume the show is nearing its completion and a December premiere could be expected.
GamesRadar updates that "Rick and Morty" Season 3 will have 14 episodes. Season 2 left off with Rick turning himself into the intergalactic police for the sake of Marty, Summer, Beth and Jerry.
Harmon's latest update on "Rick and Morty" Season 3 is that Rick won't be spending the entire season 3 in prison, indicating that an early escape is in the works. He said that "things should be okay pretty quickly."
But who will help Rick escape? There's a possibility that Evil Morty will make be one to help free Rick in prison, as he is already ripe for another appearance. With all this anticipation and speculation about what will happen in season 3, the premiere can't get here fast enough. Here's hoping that the latest update about "Rick and Morty" Season 3 airing on December proves to be true.
