Justin Roiland, Adult Swim Cuts Ties With creator Following Domestic Abuse Charges

Justin Roiland has been facing domestic abuse charges.

Following reports that the co-creator of Rick and Morty had been charged with felony domestic abuse in Orange County, Adult Swim severed their relationship with Justin Roiland.

Adult Swim/Cartoon Network/Boomerang svp communications Mairie Moore released a statement on Tuesday announcing that "Adult Swim has severed its connection with Justin Roiland."

The popular adult animated sitcom Rick and Morty, which Roiland executive produced, co-created, and voiced both the titular Rick and Morty for, is distributed by Adult Swim.

The show, one of the channel's most well-known productions, was ordered by Adult Swim in 2018 with a hefty 70-episode order, as The Hollywood Reporter noted on January 17.

According to sources, Roiland's vocal performances in Rick and Morty will be replaced. Even though Dan Harmon, another co-creator, will now be the only showrunner, Roiland will always be given credit as a co-creator. The show has a contract through season 10.
