Adult Swim has confirmed this Rick & Morty will return later this year for season seven and will be a co-creator Justin Roiland won’t be there.
During France’s Annecy International Festival, Cartoon Network President Michael Ouweleen and Executive Producer Steve Levy briefly discussed the upcoming season. This will be the first season to air after Roiland was fired following his death allegations of domestic violenceand although the charges have been brought later released, his role as the titular duo (and various supporting characters) is still being recast. So far, it’s the only Roiland project to have publicly confirmed it will replace the actor – a recently revealed expansion for Squanch Games’ high in life didn’t mention him, and Hulu shows it solar contrasts And koala man I’ve been a mom since they dumped him after those allegations.
Levy admitted the team is currently looking for a suitable voice actor, saying: “[doesn’t] I think everyone will bat an eyelid when they hear the new voices.” Ouweleen backed this up, comparing it to how different people have voiced Bugs Bunny over the decades. “It’s a pretty unique situation,” he said. “I love what Jeff Bennett has made [Bugs]. But it’s not Mel Blanc! And yet we recognize the character.”
As far as If We’ll be hearing the new voices for Rick and Morty over the next few months. When asked about the air date of season 7, Ouweleen replied, “It’s going to be this year. We try to stick to roughly the same dates every year.” Although previous seasons started back in April and not until December, season 6 started early September. If the plan is to keep “roughly” the same airdate, the show may return sometime around mid or late September. Regardless of who ends up getting the role, Adult Swim remains committed to the larger franchise as it has one anime project is coming sometime this year and has yet to complete the 70-episode order placed in 2018.
