Adult Swim has just announced that the hit animated sci-fi comedy series Rick and Morty has been renewed with an order for a new batch of episodes. These new episodes will make up the series’ third season and will continue to air during its regular Sunday timeslot at 11:30 PM ET/PT.
Rick and Morty’s new season will ride the momentum built by the series’ second seson, which premiered last July 26 and managed to rank #1 among all key adults and men. The premiere also served as one of the headliners of Adult Swim’s video streams in July 15, which garnered a total of 29.7M streams, up +12% month-to-month (Source: Nielsen Media Research Data, Omniture and YouTube Analytics.)
“I am blown away by the seemingly instant success of Rick and Morty. I look forward to continuing their adventures!” said co-creator and executive producer Justin Roiland.
