Back on April Fool's Day, when Adult Swim released the long awaited first episode of Rick and Morty on a loop, it was chaos.
Because of the date people didn't really believe that it was happening, then those that did believe it was happening ignored it in case they got their hopes up and were fooled. Eventually it came to light that it wasn't an April 1st prank and the show had finally returned.
However, due to the nature of its release people aren't too sure about upcoming episodes.
There's speculation as to when the second will air as there's yet to be an official announcement, but IMDb seems to think that the date is today.
When it comes to anything to do with TV and film, IMDb is pretty much your first port of call, but given the slippy nature of the fest ep, you have to be careful with what you believe.
Despite this, it's fair enough if you throw everything in the air and scream with joy because it's happening.
After the first show aired the official Twitter account for the show said that it would return properly in the Summer. We're not quite there yet, but if it's coming early then that's okay by us.
It took around 18 months for the third season to come about, which is awful for fans, but it's all par for the course with cartoons.
"Here's how cartoons work. First you write them, then you draw them. For a really long time," creator Dan Harmon said in February. "Everything needs to be on paper, so you can see it.
"If all I do is write it, and then put it on TV, it'll look like a script, instead of Rick and Morty, which you seem to like. So when you ask where it is, the answer is: they're drawing it."
The Rickshank Redemption episode well and truly whet everyone's whistle, especially for the elusive McDonald's Szechuan sauce.
Rick's love of the discontinued condiment was a theme of the show, and it left a lot of people questioning what it was. It was released to promote the Disney movie Mulan back in the late '90s and then disappeared forever.
At the end of the episode, Rick says: "I just took over the family, Morty, and if you tell your mom or sister I said any of this, I'll deny it. And they'll take my side because I'm a hero, Morty. Now you're gonna do whatever I say. FOREVER, And I'll go out and find some more of that Mulan Szechuan teriyaki dipping sauce, Morty. Because this is what this is all about, Morty."
He continues: "That's my one arm man, Morty. I'm not driven by avenging my dead family, Morty. That was fake. I'm driven by finding that McNugget sauce. I want that Mulan dipping sauce, Morty, that's my series arc. If it takes nine seasons, I want my dipping sauce Szechuan sauce. That's what's gonna take us all the way to the end. Season nine, nine more seasons until I get that dipping Szechuan sauce.
"97 MORE YEARS, I WANT THAT DIPPING SAUCE NOW, MORTY."
This spawned an uproar from the R&M fanbase who took to harassing McDonald's to bring back the sauce for their hero. And you know what? It might have worked.
As you can see, the official Rick and Morty account Tweeted Maccies and it responded favourably...
Then, a fan set up a change.org petition (which has garnered an impressive 23,000 signatures)...
They've also asked a McDonald's chef directly.
Mike Haracz replied to a fan...
Some fella managed to sell an old sachet of it online for a ridiculous amount.
Cashing in on the in demand condiment, they put it on eBay with the description; "I just bought a really old car, while cleaning it I found a packet of this sauce.
"After watching the recent episode of Rick and Morty I went online to see if it was worth anything. Turns out it was. Also this comes with a packet of wasabi as well.
"I hope somebody who wants to eat some 20 year old gnarly sauce gets this. I would prefer not to sell it to a collector."
And sell it he did, for a whole load of money. $14,700 (£11,500) to be exact.
Now more people have come forward with their ancient packets of dip, hoping that someone else is willing to pay an insane amount for it.
