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, and it gave the show a lot of places to go in the rest of the series. 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 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 crueller joke than showing us nothing.
