When "Rick and Morty" season 2 concluded back on October 4, 2015, fans were excited about season 3. Unexpectedly, the first episode of season 3 was aired on April 1, which surprised many fans. But the joy was short-lived because episode 2 has not aired yet. There are no confirmed details about the show, and the only think fans are left with in the meantime is rumor and speculation.

Since season 2 aired, fans have been expecting an even better season 3. Fans got a taste of season 3 when Adult Swim aired the first episode of that season without an announcement.

The first episode, titled "Rickshaw Redemption" was dubbed the best episode of the series so far. With that, there are high expectations for the next episode.

Release date

The creators revealed that episode 2 is coming later in 2017. There were reports that it would be out on May 13 but it didn't air. Another speculated date was May 20 but no "Rick and Morty" season 3 episode 2 was seen. Some fans expressed their disappointment on Twitter, saying that the third season might only have one episode.

As of now, Adult Swim has not revealed any confirmed date for the series.

But, they did share a video saying that it will be released in the Summer of 2017. It is also possible that a delay can happen, especially given the fact that creator Dan Harmon said that season 3 was challenging to write.

Rick finds love

While waiting for the next episode, fans have become more excited as they continue to read speculations about the possible plot of episode 2.

The upcoming episode of "Rick and Morty" is titled "Rickmancing the Stone" which has some similarities to the 1984 film "Romancing the Stone."

In the film, the characters fall in love with each other and they end up living a life together. Because of this, there are rumors that a romantic scene will be featured in episode 2 which might involve Rick and another character.

There are no details about the possible love interest of Rick since it is mere speculation. But, since Rick does not believe in true love, something else might happen that is linked to the romantic film.

Comic book

In other news, a "Rick and Morty" comic book is currently in the works, as announced by "Firewatch" co-director and writer Sean Vanaman and designer Olly Moss. The interior art of the comic book series will be done by C.J. Cannon. The cover art of the comic was shared by Vanaman on Twitter featuring Rick and Morty riding the Space Cruiser.
