'I want that McNugget Sauce, Morty': Szechuan sauce coming back for one day

It didn't take nine more seasons -- McDonald's Szechuan dipping sauce is coming back. 

The sauce will return in limited quantities to select restaurants across the country starting at 2 p.m. on Oct. 7. 

Szechuan sauce was originally sold as a limited-time promotion for Disney's "Mulan" in 1998. This year, Adult Swim's "Rick and Morty" premiered its third season with a call for the sauce's return.

"That's my series arc. If it takes nine seasons, I want my McNugget dipping sauce - Szechuan sauce," the show's lead character, Rick, said in the season premiere.  And thus the craze began. 

According to the McDonald's website, Austinites will be able to find the sauce at the restaurants located at 5355 N. Interregional Highway and 4501 E. Ben White Boulevard. 

McDonald's will also be giving away limited-edition posters celebrating all ten of their dipping sauces. So if you're a sauce-enthusiast, make your way to a McDonald's on Oct. 7. 

Let's just hope we still get nine more seasons.
