After all the mysterious teases, Mr. Poopy Buttholes’s vague promises, and months of waiting, the release date for “Rick and Mortyseason 3 has finally been announced. Technically, the season had already premiered with the episode “The Rickshank Redemption,” which was released back on April 1 as a not-so-funny but still welcomed April Fools prank. The main prank, however, was that there wasn’t really any hint after the episode’s airing to indicate when the next one would arrive.

Official announcement

The official date for the release of the next episode, which was recently revealed to be titled “Rickmancing the Stone,” was made through a special live streaming event with the show’s creators, Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon.

The duo officially announced that the next episode would air next month on Sunday, July 30. The creators also confirmed that “Rick and Morty” season 3 will have a total of 10 episodes similar to the previous season.

Official trailer

Aside from revealing the official release date of the third season, a brand new trailer was also released giving fans a glimpse of the adventures Rick and Morty will be in within the next episodes. Based on the trailer, there will likely be an episode where both characters will be ending up in a post-apocalyptic “Mad Max” universe.

There is also an episode where Rick will be spending his time as a “Pickle Rick.” Every scene in the trailer also hints at other ridiculous new adventures throughout space and through different dimensions.

Jerry is even shown in one of them, which means that he may still be part of Rick and Morty’s new adventures.

More seasons to come

During the live stream event, Roiland and Harmon answered a lot of questions from the audience, while also taking notes from the fan’s input on what they would like to see in the next episodes and seasons.

Speaking of which, the creators also teased that they have now begun to work on Season 4. The duo then backtracked and revealed that they weren’t supposed to talk about the upcoming new season and that they were forbidden by their agents to divulge any more information.

While there is still about a month left until the new episodes are released, fans can check out the characters in several video games.

The show’s creators have partnered with several video game properties to bring the characters to life within their titles. Special “Rick and Morty” items and skins are now available in games such as “Rocket League,” “Move or Die,” “Gang Beats,” and “Steam VR Home.”
