Rick and Morty coming back with its 3rd season

Animation
It’s a great news for the fans of Watch Rick and Morty. The series will be coming back for its 3rd season and Adult Swim has taken it upon itself to release of the Season 3 trailer.

Rick and Morty is Adult Swim’s most scientifically accurate animated comedy. Created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon, it shows the bizarre misadventures of a bored scientific genius/drunkard and his socially awkward grandson Morty.
