Justin Roiland’s roles will be replaced by other voice actors, according to media.

The American channel Adult Swim has fired Justin Roiland, co-creator and voice actor of the popular animated series ‘Rick and Morty’, after being accused of domestic violence against his ex-girlfriend on January 12, during a pre-trial hearing in the US .UU.

Adult Swim has ended its association with Justin Roiland“, public this Wednesday the account of the series on Twitter. “Rick and Morty will continue,” she added.

Roiland’s roles, who played Rick and Morty, will be replaced by other voice actors, as the sitcom isn’t even halfway through the total number of casts. 70 requested episodes for the program, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

Although the network has cut ties with Roiland, it ensures that he will always be credited as co-creator of the series, however, co-creator Dan Harmon will now be the sole executive producer and main writer of the series.

Amid the controversy, the video game company Squanch Games, of which Roiland is the founder, has announced that he resigned last Monday.

  • In that sense, Roiland faces a felony charge of domestic assault with bodily harm and another for felony unlawful retention with threats, violence, fraud and deceit.
  • Following the filing of the criminal complaint, Roiland was arrested and released on $50,000 bail in August 2020.
