It looks like Adult Swim's Rick and Morty will be going back to normal (at least Rick and Morty's version of normal) quickly into season 3.
The season 2 finale presented a pretty dark cliffhanger, with Rick turning himself in for his many crimes against the galaxy. Oh, and also the Galactic Federation took control of Earth. With so many possible implications to come in the wake of all this, some fans wondered how the show could go back to the zany days of Rick and Morty going on their twisted adventures.
Luckily, Rick and Morty co-creator Dan Harmon suggested to Den of Geek recently that season 3 won't devote too much time to the aftermath of the season 2 cliffhanger.
"I don't think anybody wants to do a third season that simply spends a whole bunch of episodes dealing with a situation that we created at the end of the second season," Harmon said. "So I think that's a non-spoiler way of saying things should be okay pretty quickly."
Asked if everything was in the clear for Rick now, Harmon simply teased, "Well, we'll keep you posted on that in the form of our cartoon."
Meanwhile, behind the scenes, Rick and Morty has hired a slew of new female writers to the staff, Harmon revealed.
"We hired a bunch of new writers. There was a craving for a gender balance in the writers' room that we had never had, but I'm also very proud of the fact that we didn't compromise ourselves following that craving," Harmon said. "We just looked harder and I don't know if it was coincidence or because the show was popping up on the radar of a lot of great female writers noticing, 'Well, they don't have any women writers in there. I'm gonna submit something.' It was probably a combination of all those factors."
Rick and Morty season 3 does not have a premiere date.
