The C-137 dimension will never be the same.
Things have gone a bit quiet since it was revealed earlier this month that Rick and Morty, co-creators and voice actors for the two leads, have been accused of domestic violence. However, Adult Swim has now broken the silence and revealed next steps in light of this news.
As it turns out, the answer is basically a scorched earth approach. Adult Swim has announced that it has completely severed ties with Justin Roiland. That’s a pretty tough stance that will bring about massive changes in the future.
Surprisingly, the same announcement reveals that this doesn’t mean the end of Rick and Morty as “the talented and dedicated crew is hard at work on Season 7.” A tweet from Discussing Film further confirms that Rick and Morty will be recast and Dan Harmon will appear as sole creator.
As of Season 4, Rick and Morty has had an annual release schedule, meaning fans will find out how this all plays out sometime in 2023. However, it’s also possible that this could delay things, considering that this is certainly more of a process than just letting a voice actor go. If nothing else, this will change the structure of the series as either Rick and Morty can sound completely different, or they will go with a soundalike.
For those wondering about Justin Roiland’s other projects, this only extends to Rick and Morty as it is a property that Adult Swim fully owns. Roiland owns developer Squanch Games, so everything that happens with High on Life and beyond is an entirely separate ordeal.
