The writer and voice actor will not return in season 7. The characters of Rick and Morty will be entrusted to someone else.
Justin Roiland is no longer one of the masterminds and voices of Rick and Morty. That is, the worst news that fans have ever wanted to hear. Adult Swim has fired the co-creator and voice of the hit animated series, following domestic abuse allegations against him in recent days.
“Adult Swim has terminated its partnership with Justin Roiland,” reads a statement signed by the head of communication of Adult Swim, Cartoon Network and Boomerang Marie Moore. As a result of this decision, the production will have to look for a new talent to entrust the roles dubbed so far by Roiland, including the two main characters that give the title to the comedy, Rick and Morty, while the same has been confirmed up to a hypothetical tenth season (in May 2018, after the conclusion of season 3, Adult Swim renewed Rick and Morty for another 70 episodes, 30 of which – seasons 4, 5 and 6 – already aired).
The accuse against Justin Roiland
