Get excited for the return of Rick and Morty, and their interdimensional adventures in the third season of Adult Swim’s “Rick and Morty.” 

Based  on Justin Roiland’s animated parody of the 1985 film “Back to the Future,” “Rick and Morty” is about the hilariously bizarre misadventures of a sarcastic, brooding scientist and his socially awkward grandson.

Rated 9.3/10 on IMDb, it’s clear to see that season 1 and 2 have been acclaimed by viewers, and audiences are impatiently anticipating for the third season to be aired. 

Unfortunately, creators Roiland and Dan Harmon have yet to announce a specific release date for the third season. 

“Rick and Morty” has enjoyed trolling its fans by Rickrolling, or using an internet meme involving an unexpected appearance of the music video for the 1987 Rick Astley song “Never Gonna Give You Up”. 

In a video released in February titled, “Rick and Morty – New Clip”, producers seemed to promise a sneak peek at what was to happen  in the new season. 

But fans were annoyed that they had been Rickrolled so early in the year. 

Though nobody is sure when Adult Swim will air the return of our two dimension-traveling heroes, it seems that all signs are pointing to “Rick and Morty” airing this spring. 

At the very end of season two, Mr. Poopybutthole (yes, that’s the name of one of the characters) announced that “Rick and Morty” wouldn’t continue its series until another year and a half, which leads us to this month. 

The first hint of “Rick and Morty’s”official completion was from screenwriter Mike McMahan, who posted on his Twitter on Feb. 18, 2016, a picture of the third season’s script. 

Since then, the creators have been waiting for the animation team to finish their episodes, so viewers can finally start watching. 

And finally, on Sept. 28, 2016, writers Sarah Carbiener and Erica Rosbe spoke on the “Chicks Who Script” podcast about the completion of new episodes. They also stated that they were waiting for in-house screening to begin.

Meanwhile, Adult Swim released an interactive website that is a Galactic Federation tie-in site from season one called, “FedConnect”. 

So for those who are newbies and haven’t seen season 1 and 2 of “Rick and Morty”, you may be asking, “Is ‘Rick and Morty’ really that funny?”

“Rick and Morty” takes every single science fiction concept you can think of and plays it out one disaster after the other.

If the Rickroll wasn’t enough evidence on how on-par the creators are with 21st century memes, the whole beginning of “Rick and Morty” was based off of a “Back to the Future” parody. 

Fans can curb your waiting time for new episodes by downloading two apps dedicated to the TV show called “Pocket Morty’s” and “Jerry’s Game.” 

These two games take jokes from the last two seasons and allow players to dive into the world of “Rick and Morty.” Viewers can also take a visit to the Galactic Federation site.

While there’s still some time to wait for new episode releases, there’s a lot more “Rick and Morty” content to explore. 

For now, fans are excited to watch the newest season , which promises even more enjoyment and laughs.
