What will happen to Rick & Morty after Adult Swim cut ties with Justin Roiland? Is the show cancelled?

In recent years, Justin Roiland has become a household name because of his work in the animation business, especially Rick and Morty.

In recent years, Justin Roiland has become a household name because of his work in the animation business, especially Rick and Morty.

However, the animator is presently being prosecuted for domestic abuse related to alleged incidents that happened in 2020. This might mean he faces a lengthy legal battle.

Roiland, 42, is accused of false detention by threat, assault, fraud, dishonesty, and domestic abuse with bodily harm.

According to the criminal complaint, the event involving Roiland and his then-girlfriend, identified as Jane Doe, happened on or around January 19, 2020.

A protective order prevents the release of evidence, such as police body camera footage, police reports, abuse investigation reports, medical records, and interview recordings. Roiland’s arrest affidavit is likewise under wraps. However, at the pretrial hearing earlier this month, Roiland was given a court date of April 27 to appear in court.

Rick and Morty to continue without Justin Roiland

The recent announcement of Justin Roiland’s felony domestic violence charges in Orange County led to Adult Swim’s decision to end its lengthy collaboration with the Rick and Morty co-creator, but the network maintains that the popular cartoon series will continue.

The network made a message on social media hours ago to ensure fresh audience material is on the way, putting an end to almost two weeks of doubt.

Warner Bros and Discovery’s senior vice president of communications Marie Moore said they would replace Roiland as the voice of Rick and Morty from Adult Swim’s flagship series.

Justin Roiland isn’t only involved in Rick and Morty; he’s also a co-creator of the Hulu comedy Solar Opposites

Korvo, one of the protagonists, is voiced by the animator. This means that a circumstance like the one depicted in Rick and Morty is not completely out of the question.

Regardless, we still can’t guarantee that the two events will play out similarly. Since Solar Opposites and Rick and Morty are produced by separate entities, each with its own rules, each must be treated separately.
