The second season of Rick and Morty ended on a bold note Sunday, putting into question how the show will move forward.
The season 2 finale was jam-packed with action, comedy and surprising pathos. Oh, and it also happened to leave Earth under the jurisdiction of the Galactic Federation. Meanwhile, Rick turned himself in for the many years of crime against the galaxy.
With Rick imprisoned and his family essentially imprisoned by the Galactic Federation on Earth, one wonders how they will possibly get out of this mess.
Rick and Morty co-creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon spoke with The Hollywood Reporter recently and teased what they have planned for season 3.
"I've been jotting ideas down, yeah. Nothing super fleshed out, but there are definitely little seeds," Roiland said, of season 3.
Harmon added: "I rewatched both seasons a couple nights ago, and now I'm excited about revisiting stuff in season three because I was so phobic about revisiting stuff in season two. Now, we can fade in on [arcade] Blips and Chitz because we've already proven that the show isn't going to start eating itself, and that will feel even more limitless if we go back to a couple things that we really enjoyed doing."
Harmon also made a promise about one of the more beloved side characters/species for season 3:
"I'm going to make that a personal promise to myself. (Laughs.) I'm going to force Mr. Meeseeks into season three," Harmon said.
There is no premiere date set for season 3 of Rick and Morty.
