Rick and Morty Sets Season 7 Return Without Justin Roiland

The post Rick and Morty Sets Season 7 Return Without Justin Roiland appeared first on Consequence.

Adult Swim has announced the Season 7 premiere date for Rick and Morty, which will return on Sunday, October 15th at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT.

The official description for the 10-episode season teases that the titular characters are “sounding more like themselves than ever,” alluding to the departure of co-creator Justin Roiland, who originally voiced both Rick and Morty. In January, Adult Swim cut ties with him in the wake of news that he was charged with felony domestic violence and false imprisonment related to a 2020 incident. They also announced his voice roles would be recast.

Roiland was cleared of the charges in March, but Rick and Morty executive producer Steven Levy confirmed at San Diego Comic-Con last month that “sound-alikes” were still being cast for Season 7. “We are closing in on the end of our process of the recast, but I do want to say it’s gonna be great,” he said. “The show is as good as it’s ever been.” He added, “The characters are the same characters. No change.”

“It’s season seven, and the possibilities are endless: what’s up with Jerry? EVIL Summer?! And will they ever go back to the high school?!” the official description continues. “Maybe not! But let’s find out! There’s probably less piss than last season. Rick and Morty, 100 years! Or at least until season 10!”

Meanwhile, Roiland’s other voice role has already been recast over at Hulu, where Dan Stevens has taken over as the new voice of Korvo in Solar Opposites. The show embraced the change as an opportunity “to reach new heights,” as Consequence Senior Entertainment Editor Liz Shannon Miller recently explained in an editorial; read that here.
