Adult Swim, the cable network that airs the hit sci-fi comedy show Rick and Morty, has announced that it has ended its association with co-creator Justin Roiland. This comes after allegations of domestic violence against Roiland surfaced earlier this month. Despite Roiland’s departure, the network has confirmed that Rick and Morty will continue with the talented and dedicated crew that is hard at work on Season 7.
The show received a 70-episode order back in 2018, and new deals with creators Roiland and Dan Harmon. The organizations involved with Roiland’s other current and recent projects have not commented on the matter, including Hulu which hosts the Roiland-co-created Solar Opposites and Squanch Games, a company co-founded by Roiland. Prior to this, Roiland provided the voices for both leads on Rick and Morty, among others, and currently voices Korvo and other various characters on Solar Opposites. Roiland was also a showrunner and executive producer on both shows.

Rick and Morty will continue with Dan Harmon as showrunner, and voices are expected to be recast. The 70-episode order takes the show up through Season 10.
The Instagram post has its comments disabled. If anything, I guess the show has to go on.
