It didn’t take Rick nine seasons after all for the creators of Rick and Morty nor did it take 97 more years: Dan Harmon and Justin Royland scored some for real and the Internet is abuzz with the news! It wasn’t just the co-creators either, the whole team behind the hit show got a chance to try some of the McDonald’s Teriyaki Szechuan Sauce made famous recently by the first episode in the third season (and the film Mulan it was used to promote all the way back in 1998). Not only did news of the tasting hit the web, they released a video of them trying it!
It seems like we have been waiting forever for Rick and Morty to return. We were fortunate to enjoy Adult Swim’s usual April 1st stunt, which just happened to show the first episode of Season 3, and made us once again crave McDonald’s Szechuan sauce (don’t be surprised if that makes a comeback). Since then, we have not heard a peep for the new season. There were even rumors that there was trouble behind the scenes between co-creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland had deteriorated during the making of a third season of the cult show. Both have denied that was the case and they have just been hard at work on delivering the new season. Lucky for us, the third season now has a start date.
The first episode of Rick and Morty Season 3 was released in just about the most Rick and Morty way imaginable – on April Fool’s Day, through a peculiar link that no one quite wanted to click because it seemed all too conveniently like a prank. The brave few who did dare click it were treated to the first episode of the long-awaited third season, which was streamed throughout the day. Sadly, the rest of the season did not follow and it was later announced that fans would have to wait until summer to see any more. (more…)
Fans of Rick and Morty have been clamoring for any and all information related to the upcoming third season for a long time and it looks like things are finally moving forward. The third season was initially expected to air sometime last year, but has been delayed for an unknown number of reasons. We recently reported on creator Dan Harmon and his exploits on Twitter addressing production, but this news is less rumor and more cold, hard facts. Rick and Morty season three is in production!
Fans of Rick and Morty have been clamoring for any news related to when season three might finally premiere. It was first thought the series would return towards the end of 2016, but that didn’t happen. While they may be more patient than fans of other series, the people awaiting new episodes of what has been called the most scientifically accurate animated comedy are getting anxious, which may be why co-creator Dan Harmon spoke out today via an interview on Indiewire addressing the delay in the premiere of season three.
There’s still three months to go until the March 2017 premiere of Adult Swim‘s third season of Rick And Morty, but creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland couldn’t wait to give fans a taste of the new season. This unfinished video with some serious “F” bombs should lighten your day and help you get through to the weekend. Just turn down the sound if you’re at work or put on headphones so that annoying co-worker in the next cubicle can’t complain to HR and check out this sneak peek.
When Marvel needed someone to script doctor some additional scenes for the upcoming Doctor Strange film starring Benedict Cumberbatch they called on Dan Harmon, creator of co-creator of the fan favorite comedy Community. Harmon is an odd choice but also an inspired one. His off-center comedic style is fantastic when it clicks with the actors involved and Cumberbatch is just the talented actor to pull it off. (more…)
Dan Harmon, most known as the creator of cult classic television comedy Community and co-creator (with Justin Roiland) of [adult swim]’s cosmic success Rick and Morty, is a busy man. Between the ongoing promise of a Community movie, the third season of Rick And Morty, and the weekly Harmontown podcast (of which there’s even a frigging documentary), you would think the man would be unable to give us any more than he already has— and yet, today he announced another show coming soon to our screens!

Where to even begin with Rick And Morty? What began as an inside joke between animators grew into a pitch-black parody of Doctor Who, filled to the gills with trans-dimensional adventures, ridonculous super-science and naked nihilism. It was only natural that nerds everywhere loved it and we were willing to settle for the promise of a new season sometime around 2017, until Dan Harmon went ahead and ruined everything by ramming his face into the hype-train’s controls and make it launch out of its tracks and into orbit at full speed with his latests statement…
I think it is safe to say that the Kickstarter started way down in Deep Thirteen is proving that there is a desire for more Mystery Science Theater 3000. With just over two days and one million dollars left in the fundraiser, it is at least confirmed that we will be getting 6 new episodes of riffing goodness and with each subsequent announcement of new cast members the excitement just continues to grow. We now know who will be the new Mads and their hapless victim, but little has been said about the writing staff, that is until now, and show creator Joel Hodgeson just dished up a juicy plate of fan favorites.
