Get ready for the new daily show

Something big coming this Thursday for Rick and Morty fans…

June 27th, 2017 by Marc Comments

We’re all thinking it, you know we are… where the hell is Rick & Morty Season 3?!

We’re like a bunch of drug addicts here waiting for our next dose of funny, existential, dark and twisted sci-fi.

But alas, no word. Well, apart from the first episode unexpectedly appearing on Aril Fool’s Day (here).

Until now.

We now know that a Rick and Morty live stream event is happening at 9 pm EST on June 29th, and word on the (overly optimistic) nerdvine is that a new episode may debut, especially with the tagline: “Don’t miss it. Or be late. Trust us.”

That’s this Thursday, folks….

In related news, the man behind the show, Dan Harmon, has taken to the internet (as you do) to explain what happened and why the third season is still mostly missing:

“I want to explain ‘what happened’ because it’s way less dramatic than you might ever imagine,” Harmon says.

“Post internet TV audiences are so used to finding out there’s an intriguing/confusing/intense reason 4 delays and Christ knows if you’ve ever seen MY name on the internet I’ve only got myself to blame for an association with intrigue/confusion/drama, but the truth in this case is so very boring.

The reason S3 took long is because it took long to write. Because it was S3 of a show that we were scared to make worse than S2 or S1. But don’t worry about the content, because the reason overthought slows you down is you just do way more versions of stuff than needed. You usually end up back where you started. So as far as I can tell, although I’m too close to it, it’s just another good season of RAM.”

We reckon that,  given Harmon’s outpouring and the unexpected announcement, it’s likely that Thursday will bring something worth waiting for… but what? Well, that’s the question, isn’t it?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
