Rick And Morty creator Dan Harmon has teased the possible air date of the upcoming third season of Adult Swim's animated series.
Harmon had hinted at the Magic City Comic Con this year that season 3 might come out sooner than the fans are expecting. There is a significant possibility that the third season might air on Adult Swim later this year.
"I think Season 3 is-we're targeting around the end of this year," Harmon said.
Though not much has been revealed of Rick And Morty season 3 plot, Harmon has confirmed that the upcoming episodes will be darker and will consist of 14 episodes instead of the previous 10 and 11 episodes in season 1 and 2, respectively.
Recent reports have stated that Beth (voiced by Sarah Chalke) and Jerry (Chris Parnell) might finally decide to get a divorce as there have been constant problems in their relationship since the beginning of season 1.
Talking about Beth and Jerry's divorce, Harmon said in the commentary track for Rick And Morty season 2 DVD that the connection between the couple has been getting weakened lately.
"I thought that Jerry and Beth getting a divorce would be like Kenny being killed in South Park, like, when we first conceived the show... that it would never run out of shelf life that that was the kind of joke about like, oh all our parents were about to get a divorce," Harmon said.
Harmon further added that viewers will get to see Beth's character developing significantly than the previous seasons.
"I think Millennial viewers are like, 'I don't understand, why don't they just recycle more?' So, season three we kind of move the Beth story forward."
Rick And Morty season 3 is expected to air in late 2016 or early months of 2017.
