Between the fall of the Galactic Federation, the massacre of the Ricks and Earth’s alien purge the Rick and Morty Season 3 premiere stuffed in enough continuity to cover several seasons of any other sci-fi show. If the first episode of Season 3 were Star Trek, it’d be like stuffing the Dominion War and “The Best of Both Worlds” into 22 minutes. “The Rickshank Redemption” delivered on every front, which is good, because we’ve got a long wait before episode 2 premieres. And this time there’s no Mr. Poopy Butthole to give us an exact release date (his prediction at the end of Season 2 was spot on!).

According to the Rick and Morty Twitter account, the next episode won’t air until this summer, which means we still have months to wait before any more Rick and Morty. But the announcement also drops a hint as to what’s in store.

From this it sounds like the next episode to air will be one we know a surprising amount about, thanks to an animatic clip screened at San Diego Comic-Con last summer. Seemingly in direct contrast to the immense narrative implications of the Season 3 premiere, the second episode will be about as silly and low-stakes as possible and can be summed up in three words: “I’m Pickle Rick!”

Rather than galactic, episode 2 dives into the sewers, pitting Pickle Rick against a horde of rats. But it seems Rick did it to himself, chasing that pickle experience.

While there’s a long wait ahead of us for more Season 3 episodes, you can always watch the premiere again. It sounds like Adult Swim will be running it over and over again for the foreseeable future:

Without an official release date and no word from Mr. Poopy Butthole, don’t expect a concrete release date for Season 3 episode 2 anytime soon.
