Adult Swim announces its Rick and Morty Season 7 premiere date, marking the first season without co-creator Justin Roiland.
Adult Swim is getting back in the deep end with Rick and Morty following the exit of the show’s co-creator, Justin Roiland. The network says Rick and Morty Season 7 will “raise the bar” for the fan-favorite animated series, complete with new episodes, voices, and hijinks. The Rick and Morty Season 7 premiere date is October 15 at 11 p.m. The season includes ten brand-new episodes of sci-fi-related comedy.
“It’s happening,” confirmed Michael Ouweleen, president of Adult Swim. “Thanks to the talent of the entire show team, we can all enjoy 10 new episodes that yet again raise the bar for comedy and animation. This season proves that the geniuses at work on Rick and Morty are just getting started.”
Rick and Morty Season 7 is the show’s first season without Roiland, who in January was charged with felony domestic abuse in Orange County, California. The incident resulted in Roiland getting ousted from his overall deal. Shortly after the initial charges, news of Roiland allegedly sending disturbing direct messages to a fan began making the rounds. Additionally, previous problematic interview comments and allegations of workplace behavior issues resurfaced, making matters worse. However, the criminal charges were dropped in March, but not before damage was done.
The official description for Rick and Morty Season 7 reads:
“Rick and Morty are back and sounding more like themselves than ever! It’s season seven, and the possibilities are endless: what’s up with Jerry? EVIL Summer?! And will they ever go back to the high school?! Maybe not! But let’s find out! There’s probably less piss than last season. Rick and Morty, 100 years! Or at least until season 10!”
Adult Swim says it’s dedicated to finding new “sound alike” voices to replace Roiland, with characters from the show remaining unchanged. Roiland’s replacement remains a mystery, though fans will have a short time to wait, with the show returning in mid-October.
