‘Rick And Morty’ Renewed For Season 3 By Adult Swim
In the wake of a solid Season 2 premiere, Adult Swim has picked up a third season of animated comedy series Rick And Morty. Created and exec produced by Dan Harmon(Community) and Justin Roiland, Rick And Morty centers on a sociopathic scientist who drags his dim grandson on adventures across the universe.
The series’ Season 2 premiere on July 26 ranked No. 1 in its time period among all key adults and men. It also saw triple-digit gains over its Season 1 premiere, up 154% P18-24, up 117% P18-34, and up 121% P18-49. From Week 1 to Week 2 the series saw a gain of up to 27% among all key demos, according to Nielsen.
I wasn't as into Season 2 as I was the first. I feel like they tried too hard to bring in drama without expanding on storylines that already existed in season 2, like Evil Morty or how Rick managed to get a family in the first place. I'm still excited for the next season, but I just hope they get more of what Season 1 so good into the second. That said, that clip is awesome. Real big step up in what usually goes on. Looking forward to seeing how Rick gets turned into a f***ing pickle.
