When is the next episode of Rick and Morty out?
Fans of Rick and Morty are thrilled that the series is finally back – five months after episode one premiered and a year and a half after season two ended.
The heavily anticipated episode two, 'Rickmancing the Stone', premiered in the US on Sunday July 30 on Adult Swim at 11.30pm.
New episodes will now continue to air every weekend in the same time slot in America. Episode three, 'Pickle Rick', will air on August 6 on Adult Swim.
Rick and Morty co-creator Dan Harmon pulled a reverse April Fools' prank on all of his fans when the season premiere aired on Adult Swim on April 1.
Netflix users in the UK, who have been desperate to watch the new episodes, are not being left out of the outrageous fun.
I tell you, as a self destructively honest guy, Justin and I have literally never fought. Season three isn’t late because of ‘fighting.’
Dan Harmon, Rick and Morty creator
All the new episodes of Rick and Morty will be added to Netflix every Sunday on the same day they air in the US.
But there is one catch. Netflix is starting off with episode one, not episode two, meaning UK fans are a whole week behind with the new season.
The release of season three has been fraught with delays and confusion ever since season two ended in October 2015.
Harmon personally took the blame for the delays, citing creative problems in writing new material for the show.

At the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, he apologised and said it was taking “longer and longer” to write new episodes.
Writing to his fans via Twitter, Harmon also denied rumours about in-fighting with Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland.
He tweeted: “I tell you, as a self destructively honest guy, Justin and I have literally never fought. Season three isn’t late because of ‘fighting.’
“In fact, ironically, maybe THAT’s the delay-cause. We respect and terrify each other and always want the other to be happy.”
