Adult Swim and Dan Harmon’s acclaimed and well-rated animated sci-fi comedy series “Rick and Morty” is coming back for a third season later this year.
Appearing at Magic City Comic Con in Miami Florida in January, at a panel which has only now just gone online, Harmon and Dino Stamatopoulos confirmed a third season of fourteen episodes will come around the end of this year.
They also said at the time “nobody blog about this,” admitting that the season was coming earlier than expected. The fourteen episode count is up from the ten of the second and eleven of the first.
The series has avoided callbacks to earlier episodes in its first two seasons, that will change with the third which is expected to reference old jokes and characters.
