Rick and Morty season 3 is finally, finally… almost upon us.
After freakin’ ages – the last episode of season 2 aired in October 2015! – we finally have an official release date for season 3. Not only that, we have our first full trailer!
Adult Swim has announced that Rick and Morty‘s third season will be kicking off on July 30. That’s right, in just four weeks! Without further ado, watch the oh-so exciting, deliciously bonkers, ridiculously intriguing trailer below:
So, why has it taken so damn long? WHY!? According to one of the tweets delivered in co-creator Dan Harmon’s hour-long hungover Twitter rant:
The reason S3 took long is because it took long to write, because it was S3 of a show that we were scared to make worse than S2 or S1.

Well, no one said perfection was easy.
Those that have seen season 3’s first ep, “The Rickshank Rickdemption”, which premiered unannounced and re-ran for four hours straight as part of Adult Swim’s annual April Fools’ prank, will know that things are looking very good indeed for the masterful animated series.
