Rick and Morty season 3 will apparently not have an extra large season, despite recent reports.
A new report from Bloody Disgusting stated that season 3 will be 19 episodes and will air in 2017. However, Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland took to Twitter to deny this information on Friday:
No idea who started the 19 episodes thing. Misinformation turning into news. Gotta love the Internet!

Season 1 was 11 episodes while season 2 was 10 episodes long.
There has been very little information released about season 3 so far, though Roiland and fellow co-creator Dan Harmon have already started pre-production.
Harmon did tease recently that the season 2 cliffhanger, which saw Rick committing himself to prison for his crimes against the universe and the Earth being overtaken by the Galactic Federation, probably won't last too long into season 3.
"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 told Den of Geek. "So I think that's a non-spoiler way of saying things should be okay pretty quickly."
Adult Swim has not yet released a premiere date for season 3 of Rick and Morty. It is unknown if fans will have to wait over a year for more episodes, as was the case between the season 1 finale (April 14, 2014) and the season 2 premiere (July 26, 2015).
