I’ve never watched the show aside from YouTube clips, mind you. What I have seen of it is very… resignedly pessimistic, I guess? So I have a certain detachment at this Rick and Morty news:
Following domestic violence allegations made against Justin Roiland, Adult Swim cut ties with the Rick and Morty co-creator and voice actor. A spokesperson shared the announcement simply saying: “Adult Swim has ended its association with Justin Roiland.”
Rick and Morty will continue, and as the announcement states, “The talented and dedicated crew are hard at work on Season 7.” The voices of Rick Sanchez and Morty Smith will be recast, but there’s no word yet on who that will be.
…Yeah, I wouldn’t bother memorizing the new guy’s name. Four more seasons or not, Adult Swim undoubtedly has a way out if/when the show tanks. Do not call up that which you cannot put down, and all that.
