“Rick and Morty” season 3 episode 1 was released as an April Fool’s prank. However, the actual show will not be released yet.

Many fans of the show believed that they were being fooled when the third season’s first episode was released on April Fool’s Day. However, while many fans did not watch it as they believed it was not real, there were others who did watch it. The thread on Reddit had over seven thousand reactions.

This April Fool’s prank was definitely different from the other pranks set out for the day. There were a lot of people who actually did not go and play the video as they believed it was fake. It is true as there are a number of videos online saying that the video is the third season’s first episode. Sometimes, the videos posted are just the replay of the other episodes of the show. This time around though, fans rejoice as they get to see what happens in the first episode of the upcoming season.

For those who were not able to catch the premiere as well as the repeat on April 3, the series starts out with Rick at a diner with the rest of the family. However, viewers would soon find that he is actually inside a simulation in his own brain. In addition to this, Earth has also been taken over by the Galactic Federation so humans are living together with aliens. While this is happening, Summer and Morty are constantly arguing about Rick abandoning everyone.

Another spoiler that Reddit provided was the McDonald’s Szechuan sauce. According to the spoiler, the show talked about McDonald’s creating a new sauce that was supposed to be delicious. It was created back in 1998 and was promoted. Now, fans of the show who were able to watch asked McDonald’s to bring back this special sauce.
