Following allegations of domestic abuse, Adult Swim cuts ties with co-creator of Rick and Morty Justin Royland.
Adult Swim no longer works with Justin Roiland. The next episode of Rick and Morty The creative and committed team is working diligently on Season 7.
Well, this sucks for Rick And Morty fans, including me.
In Orange County, California, Roiland was charged with one felony count of domestic battery
with corporal injury and one felony count of false imprisonment by menace, violence, fraud, or deception, as previously reported
In 2020, he entered a not-guilty plea and appeared in court on Thursday.
January 13, 2023, for a hearing prior to trial. The trial has yet to be scheduled. On April 27, he is scheduled for another pre-trial hearing.
Variety was able to obtain a copy of the felony complaint, which states that the incident took place on or about January 19, 2020,
against an unidentified Jane Doe who was dating Roiland at the time.
Roiland is not likely to return to the show, and sources claim that his roles will be filled by new actors.
"Rick & Morty" was previously renewed by Adult Swim in 2018 for 70 more episodes with the objective of bringing it to at least 100 episodes.
The series has broadcast 61 episodes to date, with Season 6 ending in December 2022.
