Many were still awestruck with the fact that Adult Swim suddenly aired the premiere episode of Rick and Morty last April 1. Since then, fans have been expectant that the creators of the show will continue to surprise them all throughout the entire installment. Meanwhile, recent speculations hinted that episode 2 might be released this summer.

“Rick and Morty” will have 14 episodes

It was told that Adult Swim was very prepared this time as more revelations would unfold this season. And despite the minimal information that they are releasing, reports speculated that the third installment of “Rick and Morty” will be having 14 episodes instead of 10.

Other than that, in an interview with Y Combinator Podcast, show’s screenwriter Ryan Ridley gave a great sneak peek of who gets to return in the third season of the series. He then admitted that Mr. Meeseeks, voiced by Justin Roiland, will not be back for the sequel.

Mr. Meeseeks leaves, Birdperson returns

Ridley explained that the creators of “Rick and Morty” would want to bring in some new flavor in the upcoming season and bringing Mr. Meeseeks back will not help in some ways. He also reiterated that the team behind the series thoroughly discussed everything before coming up with huge decisions. As he stated:

"We'd want to really explore a different aspect of it. But that's one way to do it, right there, is to show what the inside of a Meeseeks box looks like.

That would have been really cool."

On the other hand, it was confirmed that Birdperson, voiced by Dan Harmon, will be making his great return on the show as Phoenix Person. However, it was told that he will not treat Rick Sanchez as an ally anymore in the war against the Galactic Federation.

Other than that, fans should expect that “Rick and Morty” season 3 will get to focus on the life of Beth and Jerry as they try to separate ways and move on with each other.

Also, Rick and Morty would get to face the effects of their past behaviors.

Independent also reported that fans should watch out on the show’s collaboration with “Alien: Covenant” as they try to produce a snippet of a face-hugger from the attacking Rick in an attempt to embed baby aliens into the character.

Reasons for Season 3’s delayed release revealed

Meanwhile, show’s creator Dan Harmon admitted that the arguments and misunderstandings of the team caused the delay for the upcoming sequel. He then explained that they have a great number of fights this time than the past seasons combined.
