An update on the casting process was provided following Justin Roiland’s departure due to felony domestic violence claims that have since been dropped during the Rick and Morty panel on Friday at San Diego Comic-Con. Executive producer Steve Levy claims that the recasting process is about to be completed. It is going to be wonderful.
He briefly paused, possibly unsure of what to do. I am quite amazed by everything that is happening right now, especially the season seven effort. Roiland, who co-created the show with Dan Harmon, has played inventor Rick Sanchez and his adolescent grandson Morty since the first episode aired in 2013. Levy said that he did not want the recasting controversy to interfere with the other team members’ planning for the upcoming seventh season, the start date of which has not yet been determined.
Levy remarked, “The show is as good as it’s ever been.” The question of whether the alternative voices would sound like Roiland’s was later raised by a fan. It is classified as soundalikes by Levy. The characteristics have remained the same and have not changed. In January, the co-creator of Rick and Morty, according to sources, was charged with felony domestic assault in Orange County, California.
In its statement in response, Adult Swim stated that it has “ended its association with Justin Roiland.” After getting a 70-episode order in 2018, the television program has a contract through season 10. Scott Marder will be in charge of the show, and Roiland will still have the title of co-creator. Harmon had to miss the panel on Friday since no Writers Guild members were able to present their work there due to the writers’ strike. Celebrities have skipped the event because of the actor’s strike. The Orange County District Attorney’s office dismissed the charges against Roiland in March. When the announcement was made, Roiland tweeted that it was “justice.”
