Rick and Morty Season 3 Continues Today


The second episode of the third season of the sci-fi comedy animated series Rick and Morty will air today, July 30th. This comes after the first episode of the season aired unannounced during Adult Swim on April 1st of this year.

Fans are understandably excited as it has been more than a year since the second season ended. There were even rumors season three would never happen as well as many rumored start dates that didn’t come to pass (often originating in or being spread by members of the somewhat imfamous Rick and Morty Schwiftposting Facebook group.)

Season Three, episode two airs on Cartoon Network as part of the Adult Swim block of programming at 11:30PM EST. The trailer for this season can be found below.

New Stargate Series In The Works

At the Stargate 20th Anniversary Panel at San Diego Comic Con, MGM announced a new Stargate series is coming. This series will be called Stargate Origins

Not a lot of information was given during the panel but we do know a few things. First is Stargate Origins begins filming next month. Next is the lead character will be Catherine Langford. If you remember the movie, Catherine Langford was the woman who hired Daniel Jackson to look into the Stargate in the original movie and it was her father who discovered it. This brings into question where the series falls in the continuity of the franchise as Stargate SG-1 established Catherine did not travel through the Stargate until much later in life. It is possible Stargate Origins is a reboot and the previous three series will no longer be considered canon.

We will try to bring you more information as it becomes available. Until then, what are your thoughts? Are you looking forward to this new Stargate series or would you rather SG-1, Atlantis, and Universe be allowed to stand as they are?

New Blade Runner 2049 Trailer

Warner Bros has released another trailer for the upcoming Blade Runner sequel, Blade Runner 2049.

Blade Runner 2049 has a star-studded cast, led by Ryan Gosling and the returning Harrison Ford. It is due to be released on October 6th of this year.

The original Blade Runner was somewhat loosely based on the classic Phillip K Dick novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? While there were sequels to that novel (and somewhat to the original film) written, this film is not following their path.
