Long-suffering fans of Rick and Morty are no longer stuck in a perpetual limbo of ignorance, apparently, as we await the upcoming third season.
Finally, details have been released about what we can expect from Rick and his sidekick, Morty, in the future.
According to its listing on IMDb, the season three premiere of Rick and Morty will be a full hour of intergalactic, time-warping and potentially life-threatening japes.
IMDb lists 13 additional episodes, each with the standard 22-minute run-time. Plenty of time to Get Schwifty. The site also lists April 24 as the premiere date, but Adult Swim is yet to confirm this.
A PSA on the Rick and Morty sub-Reddit announced:
Recently we’ve seen a bunch of posts citing either IMDB, Wikipedia or a shopped Justin Roiland tweet claiming various Season 3 release dates (specifically April 24th and May 17th) so just to be clear: Adult Swim has not said anything about when Season 3 will be released.
There is no confirmed date and anything stating otherwise is incorrect. When the date is announced, it will be through Adult Swim and will be plastered all over this subreddit.
Sending a direct message to all the fan theorists out there, they continued:
It’s not going to appear suddenly on IMDB with no other sources confirming it, or at the bottom of a cereal box in some code that you’ve deciphered. Posts with false release dates will be removed to curb misinformation.
Feel free to ask any questions in this thread, unless you’re asking when Season 3 is going to start because we don’t know. If you are experiencing extreme difficulty during this wait, you might want to reach out to a Venture Bros fan for advice.
We are here if you need to talk.
Although IMDb is a reputable source for film and television news, it seems we have once again been duped; just the latest in the emotional roller-coaster of mixed messages and crimes against ‘everything’.
Rick and Morty season three will premiere on April 24.
