‘Rick and Morty’ Drops Main Voice Actor Justin Roiland – CNET
Adult Swim has severed ties with Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland.
“Adult Swim has ended its association with Justin Roiland,” reads a statement posted by the Rick and Morty Twitter account Tuesday afternoon. “Rick and Morty will continue. The talented and dedicated crew are hard at work on Season 7.”
In January, it was reported that Roiland had been charged with one felony count of domestic battery with corporal injury and one felony count of false imprisonment by menace, violence, fraud and/or deceit by the Orange County District Attorney’s office.
Roiland, who created the adult animated sci-fi sitcom with Dan Harmon, also voices protagonists Rick Sanchez and Morty Smith. Roiland’s voice roles will reportedly be recast for future seasons.
In 2018, Adults Swim made an order for 70 episodes of the hit series, signing long-term deals with Roiland and Harmon. The show was renewed through to season 10. The show has four more seasons to go, after season 6 finished airing in December.
