It’s back! Finally!
Taking advantage of April Fool’s Day, the team at Adult Swim streamed on a loop what seems like the first episode of season 3 of Rick and Morty.
Happy to have confused the world today. Or at least North America.

What at first was a North American exclusive was soon streamed on Facebook and sent fans into a frenzy.
Their joke was to make people think they were just playing a prank when they announced they would be streaming it online, and to the surprise and joy of fans, Adult Swim followed through.
The episode comes a while after season 2 ended but was well worth the wait, being probably one of the best Rick and Morty episodes to date.
It follows from where season 2 left us, with Rick putting his escape plan into action. Meanwhile, Summer has gotten the ball rolling on a rescue plan of her own.
The new episode has set up the nature of the coming season, with Rick taking a bit of a darker turn from the development he made over season 2.
But what this also means is that it looks like we’ll get to more of what we all love about Rick and Morty.
What I’m looking forward to most is Pickle Rick.
