The Aftermath of Rick and Morty —

Adult Swim, the company that produces Rick and Morty, also cut ties with Roiland, reporting on Jan. 24. Rick and Morty is still being produced and aired, even though the show’s creator will no longer be lending his voice to the two protagonists. New voice actors will be chosen for both characters in the future. Justin Roiland co-founded Squanch Games in 2016 and has since been involved in the development of all four of the team’s titles.
