Dan Harmon addresses the delay of Ricky and Morty’s third season

Last Updated on August 5, 2021

Even as someone who discovered Rick and Morty for the first time just last year, the wait for the third season of the brilliant animated comedy series has been frustratingly long, but, like all good things, I'm perfectly willing to wait. Even after the surprise April Fool's Day airing of the premiere episode, Rick and Morty's third season still doesn't have an official release date, so it's hard to say just how long we'll have to wait for the rest. Rick and Morty co-creator Dan Harmon took to Twitter over the weekend to address the delay, as well as to put fears of a possible "show-threatening issue" to bed due to rumours that co-creator Justin Roiland and himself have been fighting.

So, long story short, Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland perhaps put a little too much thought into making sure that the third season of Ricky and Morty lived up to the previous two seasons, which slowed the writing process down considerably. I'm sure it will all be worth it in the end, and, as Dan Harmon seems to be aware of the issue, the wait for the fourth season of Rick and Morty may not be quite so long. I hope.
