'Rick & Morty' Season 3 Update: Closer Look At Vin Diesel Casting, Hawaii Adventure And Mr. Meeseeks' Comeback

Despite the ambiguous premiere date of "Rick and Morty" season 3, a string of details about the sci-fi comedy series has started to surface and most of them were already confirmed by the creators and writers. Here's a closer look at some details about "Rick and Morty" season 3 that have already been confirmed by co-creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland.

Hawaii Adventure: Morty Goes Surfing

Back in August 2015 after the second episode of season 2 aired, Adult Swim released the official statement confirming the renewal of "Rick and Morty" season 3. In the same statement, Harmon said: "It's time to demand that the network [Adult Swim] allows us to draw the characters going to Hawai-i." This part of the storyline was the first to be confirmed by the creators. However, it remains unknown whether a huge part of season 3 will be set in "The Aloha State" or characters will just take some fresh air. Fans should get to see the inner surfing freak side of Morty...and Rick, perhaps?

Vin Diesel Casting: Drifting Cars

At the San Diego Comic-Con 2016 last July when creators released an exclusive new clip from "Rick and Morty" season 3, Roiland and Harmon disclosed their dream guest star is Vin Diesel. If Vin Diesel appears in the series, he might be drifting some flashy hot cars.

Mr. Meeseeks Returns: New Angle

In the meantime, the comeback of Mr. Meeseeks has been considered by the creative team. However, it remains a debate as to how they will be calling back the character to make sure it won't make him irrelevant in all sense of the word. Staff writer Ryan Ridley expressed that bringing back something in the past should be grounded by a new angle.

In hopes to strike a balance with regard to presentation of genders and diversity, creators pooled new writers. In an exclusive interview with Den of Geek, Harmon shared this part of the changes they are bringing in with "Rick and Morty" season 3. He told the publication: "There was a craving for a gender balance in the writers' room that we had never had, but I'm also very proud of the fact that we didn't compromise ourselves following that craving."

"Rick and Morty" season 3 was reported to air in December 2016, while others said March 2017. These reports have to be taken with a grain of salt as of now as there is no confirmation yet from Adult Swim. The series though was already confirmed to comprise 14 episodes.
