‘Rick and Morty’ Season 7 latest news

Rick and Morty Season 7: New Beginnings Amidst Controversy

“Rick and Morty,” one of the most beloved and successful adult animated series, is gearing up for its highly anticipated seventh season. However, the show finds itself in the midst of a significant creative restructuring, largely due to the departure of former series creator and star, Justin Roiland. Roiland was let go by Adult Swim in early 2023 following disturbing allegations of domestic abuse. Although the charges against Roiland were later dropped, the controversy gave rise to additional allegations that tarnished the once-promising star’s reputation in the eyes of the public.

Shortly after his departure from Adult Swim, Hulu also severed ties with Roiland, effectively removing him from other projects like “Solar Opposites” and “Koala Man.” This abrupt shift in creative leadership has forced the show’s production teams to adapt quickly, as evidenced by the recasting of Roiland’s lead role of Corvo with Dan Stevens in the upcoming season of “Solar Opposites.” A similar situation is expected to unfold in “Rick and Morty” Season 7, where at least one new actor will be needed to voice the iconic characters of Rick and Morty.

Justin Roiland’s role as co-creator and star undoubtedly played a significant role in the success of “Rick and Morty.” However, Adult Swim made it clear in their statement following Roiland’s departure that the show would continue. They affirmed, “Rick and Morty will continue. The talented and dedicated crew are hard at work on Season 7.” Let’s delve into what we know about the upcoming season, including its release date, cast, plot, and where you can watch it.

Release Date and Where to Watch

“Rick and Morty” Season 7 is set to return to Adult Swim on October 15, with episodes airing weekly at 11:00 am EST. Adult Swim has committed to fulfilling the 70-episode order made before Roiland’s firing. The season will consist of approximately ten episodes, consistent with previous seasons. After the season concludes on Adult Swim, fans can expect it to be available for streaming on Max and Hulu, following the trend of previous seasons.

Trailer and Episode Titles

While an official trailer for Season 7 has not been released, Adult Swim did provide fans with a recap video that featured Rick Prime, offering a glimpse of the future with slightly different voices for Rick and Morty due to Roiland’s departure. As of now, the replacement for Roiland remains undisclosed. Additionally, a video unveiling the episode titles for Season 7 was released on August 31, providing fans with a glimpse of what to expect.


The most pressing question surrounding “Rick and Morty” Season 7 is who will step in to voice the iconic characters of Rick and Morty, previously portrayed by Justin Roiland. Roiland’s involvement extended beyond voice acting, as he was also involved in writing and co-creating the show. Recasting the roles presents various options, including hiring a new voice actor to play both characters or selecting two separate actors to voice Rick and Morty.

Despite the uncertainty surrounding Rick and Morty’s voices, the rest of the main supporting cast is expected to return for Season 7. This includes Chris Parnell as Jerry Smith, Spencer Grammer as Summer Smith, and Sarah Chalke as Beth Smith and Space Beth Smith. The series may also continue to feature recurring actors and side characters, such as Kari Wahlgren as Jessica, Brandon Johnson as Mr. Goldenfold, and Keith David as the President. “Rick and Morty” is known for featuring celebrity guest stars, so we can anticipate familiar voices making appearances in Season 7.

Plot: The Hunt for Rick Prime

While Season 7 of “Rick and Morty” remains shrouded in mystery, the finale of Season 6 offered a significant glimpse into the overarching storyline. This narrative thread has its roots in Season 3 when Rick took an intergalactic government agent on a journey through his memories. During this trip, Rick revealed that his universe’s version of his wife and daughter were killed by another Rick known as Rick Prime.

At that time, Rick admitted to fabricating this backstory. However, the Season 5 finale suggested that Rick’s tale might have had a kernel of truth. In the Season 6 finale, Rick shared his “crybaby backstory” with Morty, confirming that Rick Prime is a real entity and that he indeed killed Rick’s wife and daughter. This revelation has fueled Rick’s desire for revenge, and he informs Morty that Season 7 will revolve around his relentless pursuit of Rick Prime.

Production Team and Spin-Offs

With Justin Roiland’s departure, the responsibility for running, writing, and producing “Rick and Morty” presumably falls on co-creator Dan Harmon. Harmon has proven his expertise in creating and managing successful series, both with and without Roiland’s collaboration.

Additionally, the “Rick and Morty” universe is expanding with the development of spin-off projects. The first spin-off, “Rick and Morty: The Anime,” is an exclusive offering on Max. This expansion hints at the potential for more spin-offs in the future, further enriching the “Rick and Morty” universe.

As “Rick and Morty” Season 7 approaches, fans eagerly await the unfolding of this new chapter, full of challenges and fresh opportunities for the beloved series. Despite the changes and controversies, “Rick and Morty” continues its journey, promising more surreal adventures in the multiverse.
