Rick and Morty Season 3 is finally back tonight, but one question is lingering with fans before the season returns. How many episodes can we expect to see this season? After such a long wait, the more the better.
Adult Swim has not made an official announcement about how many episodes to expect in Season 3, at the time of publication. The best we can figure out is based on what Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland have said.
Unfortunately, they’ve shared conflicting information. The most recent news came on June 29 during the Rick and Morty special live stream event with Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland, when Harmon said there would be 10 episodes. However, he was also making a lot of jokes around the time he said this, and it was unclear if he was saying there were 10 episodes total or 10 episodes following the premiere that had already aired.
Back in December, during a Magic City Comic Con panel, Harmon had said there were going to be 14 episodes in Season 3.
The safest bet is to be excited about 10 episodes and not rely too heavily on the 14 episode rumor. But if we turn out to have 14 instead of 10, that leaves room for a happy surprise! Season 1 had 11 episodes and Season 2 had 10 episodes, so 10 would definitely be more in line with what we’ve seen so far.
At the moment, we have six episodes with titles confirmed for Season 3. The rest of the titles haven’t been released yet. The released titles are:
- Episode 1: The Rickshank Redemption
- Episode 2: Rickmancing the Stone
- Episode 3: Pickle Rick
- Episode 4: Vindicators 3: The Return of Worldender
- Episode 5: The Whirly Dirly Conspiracy
- Episode 6: Rest and Ricklaxation
