Adult Swim cuts ties with Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland amid domestic abuse charges

Justin Roiland has been fired from Rick and Morty. In addition to being the voice behind the two main characters of the adult animated show, Roiland was also a co-creator and executive producer.

“Adult Swim has terminated its association with Justin Roiland,” Mary Moore, Adult Swim/Cartoon Network/Boomerang’s senior vice president of communications, said in a statement Tuesday, The Hollywood Reporter reported.

Justin Roiland and Rick and Morty

Adult Swim, which distributes Rick and Morty, cut ties with Justin Roiland nearly two weeks after news broke that the 42-year-old writer, broadcaster and entertainer was accused of domestic abuse. However, the publication reported that Rick and Morty would continue with their voice provided by someone else.

Adult Swim is less than half of the 70-episode order for the popular animated comedy show, which was commissioned by the channel in 2018. The publication further explained that Justin will always be credited as Rick and Morty co-creator Dan. Harmon, the other co-producer, will serve as the show’s sole showrunner. It has already been booked through 10 seasons.

Accusations against Justin Rowland

NBC News first shared the news on January 12 that Justin Roiland has been charged with one count of domestic battery with bodily harm and one count of false imprisonment for intimidation, violence, fraud or deception in Orange County. The charges are based on an alleged 2020 incident with an unidentified Jane Doe, with whom he was in a relationship. Roiland was released on $50,000 bail that same year after pleading not guilty. Several pre-trial hearings have already taken place, and Roiland’s next hearing is on April 27.

Roiland’s attorney, T. Edward Welburn, issued a statement earlier this month saying that media coverage of the case has been “incorrect.” Welburn continued: “To be clear, not only is Justin innocent, but we have every expectation that once the DA’s office has completed its systematic review of the evidence, this case will be dismissed.”
