Adult Swim?s sci-fi comedy Rick and Morty season 3 has yet to receive an official release date amid rumors hinting of a December 2016 premiere. Co-creator Dan Harmon had promised an airing of the popular animated series well before the year comes to an end. But with no teaser trailers out yet, the prospect of Rick and Morty landing this year looks bleak.
Rick and Morty release update
Recent spate of rumors, however, suggest otherwise. Rick and Morty season 3 just might premiere around Christmas this year, if a report from Movie News Guide is to be believed. An allegedly leaked photo of characters in festive mood has fired up fans? expectations. The picture leaked is a simple image of the Smith’s house that is covered in snow and is decorated for the holidays. Santa and a reindeer can also be seen in the photo.
However, season 3 of Rick and Morty is unlikely to premiere on December 25, 2016. Reddit users were quick to point out that the image came from the opening of ?Anatomy Park,? the third episode of the first season of Rick and Morty.
