It is one of the most popular American animated series of recent years.

On Tuesday, Adult Swim announced it was parting ways with

Rick and Morty

co-creator Justin Roiland, who was charged in mid-January with domestic violence.

Rick and Morty

will continue.

The talented and dedicated team is hard at work on Season 7,” Adult Swim clarified in a tweet.

Targeted by a complaint from an ex-girlfriend in 2020, Justin Roiland was charged in California with domestic violence and forcible confinement by the justice of Orange County.

He has pleaded not guilty and a date for a possible trial has not yet been set.

His lawyer said he hopes the charges will be dropped by then.


According to

The Hollywood Reporter

, it is the co-creator of the series, Dan Harmon (


), who will now be alone at the helm as showrunner.

Major problem: Justin Roiland was the voice of the two main characters, Morty, a not very smart teenager, and Rick, his grandfather, a trashy and alcoholic mad scientist.

The channel will therefore have to look for one or more new actors.

This decision will be awaited at the turn by fans of these geeky and crazy intergalactic adventures.

Rick and Morty

is the golden goose of Adult Swim, which placed a 70-episode mega-order in 2018, so the series must continue for at least four more seasons.
