Unfortunately, despite three months being left in 2016, Adult Swim is yet to disclose the premiere date of the famous cartoon series. This has led viewers to speculate that "Rick and Morty" season 3 might not be aired this year.
Meanwhile, there have been numerous speculations about the storyline of the upcoming season. According to several rumors, there is a theory that Evil Morty and Rick might be back this season. Additionally, viewers have also speculated that Krombopulos Michael might help Rick escape the Galactic Federation Jail.
It is also believed that Jerry and Beth, (Morty's parents), will be getting a divorce this season after the numerous arguments they have had. Harmon has also mentioned that this would be something like "Kenny being killed in South Park".
However, Harmon did not comment on if Beth and Jerry will finally be separated from each other. Thus, it seems that the upcoming season of "Rick and Morty" will highlight the emotional turmoil between couples among other scenarios.
As of the moment, there has been no definite announcement about the storyline and the release date of the show. It seems viewers would have to stay tuned to catch the latest news.
