Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland have finally spilled the beans regarding Rick and Morty Season 3.

Rick and Morty Season 3 Reveals the List of Guest Stars!
The animated sitcom has never been shy about adding celebrity voices on its team. Hollywood talents have been eager to work with Harmon and Roiland since the critically-acclaimed series hit the television screens. Past seasons included voices of Alfred Molina, John Oliver, Stephen Colbert, Keegan-Michael Key, and Jordan Peele.
Perhaps one of the most interesting scoops about this season is the list of stars that can be expected to make an appearance in the show. Included in the roster are Thomas Middleditch, Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Susan Sarandon, and Danny Trejo. Also lending his voice will be legendary actor Keith David, who previously starred as the President of the United States in the Ricky and Morty episode Get Schwifty.
Creators Explain How Parodies End Up in Series
Aside from divulging the list of stars in Rick and Morty Season 3, Harmon and Roiland also talked about a lot of topics, including Pickle Rick and Lighthouse Keeper to Mad Max and Game of Thrones parodies. As to how the bonkers plots ended up in the series, Roiland explained, “It’s like we’re laughing, we’re crying, but we’re like ‘okay no but seriously, we can’t have a second act where they go and sit listening to an old man in a lighthouse read a screenplay.’”
The creator further said, “Like, come on, let’s really f****** figure out this second act here…and then we just kept on going back to the lighthouse. Like, we would talk for 10 minutes about other ways it could go, and then it would just continue to circle around back to the Lighthouse Keeper, for no other reason than it was just fun and we were just laughing and in the moment.”
Rick and Morty Season 3 aired its first episode at April Fool’s Day. The second installment is expected to release on July 30 on Adult Swim. Fans should wait for its return to find out what happens to the much-loved characters.
