Don't Expect More New Episodes of Rick and Morty Any Time Soon

Hey, did everyone enjoy the surprise premiere of Rick and Morty season three? Did you think it meant—as it often does—that the season proper would start airing after it? Well, hold your horses because you’ve got a couple of months to wait.

Rick and Morty’s season three premiere aired as a surprise on Saturday (if you missed it, it’s going to be on every night this week at 10pm), and it gave the show a lot of places to go in the rest of the season. Unfortunately, according to Adult Swim’s press release, the rest of season three won’t be airing until “later this summer.”


Which could mean anything from mid-May (when summer vacation starts for some) to the actual start of summer in late June. That’s a long time to stew over the premiere. Somehow, giving us one episode and then making us wait feels less like a reverse April Fools and more like a crueler joke than showing us nothing.
