Here’s an April Fools’ joke you’ll like: Fans of the series Rick and Morty have been waiting more than one year, but Adult Swim finally aired a new episode of the show Saturday.
Available to viewers in the U.S. and other “select locations,” the Season 3 premiere is set to play on loop until midnight ET and PT as part of the channel’s April Fools’ prank. Viewers are advised to get their adult sci-fi fix of mad scientist Rick and his grandson Morty while they can.
The show’s co-creator, Dan Harmon, teased the stunt Friday night before blasting it on Twitter the following day.
To the 900 waiting in Chicago: Rick and Morty’s season 3 premiere started airing. It will be airing on a loop after we’re done, you’re fine

As for UK viewers who were unable to watch the clip, Harmon had only one thing to say. Not kind, but fair.
