Fans of Rick and Morty have been waiting for the third season for over a year and as time goes on, so do the rumors regarding its delay. While Dan Harmon and company did release an episode of the show on April Fools day that repeated all day, there had been no news of what’s happening with the product other than that they are working hard to release it, until now.
Harmon went to Twitter earlier this week in what he called a hangover inspired a stream of updates, tweeting multiple times in the hopes of putting a lot of rumors to rest regarding the delay of the show. Most importantly he addressed the alleged tension between co-creator Justin Rolland.
As I speak, more articles are coming out about me and Justin fighting because it’s a less boring reason for a season to take long and because I’m Dan Harmon. So it’s a smart fucking first guess, it just happens to be hilariously not true even in the slightest. If you do know of me at all you know that if Justin and I HAD ever fought, not only wouldn’t we be able to keep it secret, we’d be all too eager to share it with you. Also, that’s not what would make the show slow down! Fighting probably would have been a good idea, it might have sped us up.
Harmon continued to state that the real reason for Rick and Morty’s delay is the simple, boring answer that the work takes time, especially the writing. He stated that they were scared of making a worse season than the shows first two and that a lot of it was simply overthinking.
While there is no release date for the rest of Rick and Morty as of yet, you can be sure Dan Harmon will keep fans up to date, as he truly seems to care about the property and it’s rabid fan base. He also ended his stream of tweets (jokingly) saying “And also JUSTIN IS A PIECE OF SHIT I’M GOING TO FIST FIGHT. End of threaddddddd so hungover.”
