Fans were really hoping that Season 3 Episode 2 would premiere during the much-hyped Rick and Morty live stream tonight. Unfortunately, Episode 2 did not air on the live stream tonight, despite fans’ hopes.
We did learn that the episode will premiere on July 30 at 11:30 p.m. Eastern. It may be premiering a little later than fans hoped, but it’s not too far away.
Fans were also treated to a trailer for Season 3 during the live stream. Watch it below:
This trailer will give us a lot to talk about between now and July 30.
Fans are excited, but also disappointed that it’s not airing tonight. We haven’t seen an episode since the Season 3 premiere surprised everyone on April Fool’s (and made a few Samurai Jack fans sad.)
Will there be more Szechuan Sauce? Will we find out of the premiere was real or just a hallucination? (It was probably real.) Fans can’t wait to see it and then analyze every single detail.
The premiere date is very welcome news, especially after all those rumors just a few days ago about the season being canceled. There wasn’t any truth to those rumors, and Harmon even took to Twitter to set everyone straight. Perhaps those rumors were part of the reason he felt compelled to host this event and get everyone back on the same page.
