Rick And Morty Season 7: Guess what? Rick and Morty Season 7 is officially set to come out this autumn. This news was shared by Adult Swim on Thursday. This new set of episodes is going to be the first batch of the popular animated series after Adult Swim decided to part ways with Justin Roiland, who was one of the creators and stars of Rick and Morty. This decision was made due to accusations about him being involved in domestic violence and causing problems at the workplace.
Michael Ouweleen, the president of Adult Swim, expressed his excitement in a statement by saying, “It’s really happening!” He thanked the entire team behind the show for their talents and announced that there will be 10 fresh episodes. These episodes are expected to continue the tradition of mixing great comedy with impressive animation. According to him, this new season will show that the creative minds behind Rick and Mortyare just getting started and have a lot more to offer.
Adult Swim gave a little hint about the replacement of Justin Roiland in a press release. They playfully mentioned, “Rick and Morty are back and they’re sounding more like themselves than ever!”
In terms of what’s in store for Season 7, the official description shared that the possibilities are vast. It’s the seventh season, so anything can happen. There are questions about what’s going on with the character Jerry, a mention of an “EVIL Summer,” and whether they’ll ever return to high school. There’s an acknowledgment that things might be a bit different this time, with maybe less “piss” (a reference to a past season). They also humorously stated, “Rick and Morty, 100 years! Or at least until season 10!” This implies they’re committed to bringing the show to the viewers for quite a while.
Who Returns for Season 7 of Rick and Morty?
Now that Roiland is no longer part of the show, Dan Harmon will be leading Rick and Morty forward. They’re aiming to fulfill their order for 70 episodes. The voices of Chris Parnell, Sarah Chalke, and Spencer Grammer will return to play Jerry, Beth, and Space Beth, and Summer Smith, respectively. We don’t know yet which of the familiar voice actors and characters will show up in Season 7, but we can expect many more famous guest stars to make appearances in the ten episodes.
Aside from the main series, Rick and Morty fans can also look forward to a new anime spinoff series. This show is set to arrive later this year on a platform called Max. The teaser clip shown at San Diego Comic-Con suggests it will be vibrant and delightful. Studio Deen, known for other successful anime like Rurouni Kenshin, Kono Subarashii, and Higurashi: When They Cry, is working on this spinoff for Adult Swim. The spinoff will follow the Smith family’s adventures, including Morty and his samurai/mad scientist uncle Rick, in a different timeline from the main series. Takashi Sano, who worked on Tower of God, will be returning as the director for this spinoff series.
Adult Swim has exciting news for fans of the popular animated show Rick and Morty. They’ve officially announced that the show’s seventh season is on its way. Even though one of the creators, Justin Roiland, is no longer involved, the network promises that these new episodes will be even better.
You can mark your calendars for Sunday, October 15th, at 11 p.m., as that’s when the new season will make its return. Just like recent seasons, this one will also consist of 10 episodes.
Michael Ouweleen, who is the president of Adult Swim, confirmed the news by saying, “It’s really happening!” He thanked the entire team working on the show and mentioned that we’re in for a treat with these 10 new episodes. He believes that the level of comedy and animation is going to be pushed even higher this season, showcasing the incredible talent behind Rick and Morty. According to him, this season is proof that the creative minds behind the show still have plenty of amazing ideas up their sleeves.
The official description for season seven gives a nod to the changes in the cast by saying, “Rick and Morty are back and they’re sounding more like themselves than ever!” This new season is full of possibilities as it’s the seventh one. There’s curiosity about what’s going on with Jerry, the mention of an “EVIL Summer,” and whether they’ll revisit their high school days.
The description humorously acknowledges that maybe the high school part won’t happen, but it’s all about finding out. They also joke that there might be less crude humor compared to the previous season. The description wraps up with a playful nod, saying, “Rick and Morty, 100 years! Or at least until season 10!”
Adult Swim proudly highlights that Rick and Morty has been the most popular comedy on cable TV during the third, fourth, fifth, and sixth seasons. In 2022, the show captured the attention of over 19 million viewers on regular TV broadcasts and continues to be a hit on the streaming service Max. The show has even won two Emmy Awards for its outstanding animated content and is currently up for a third Emmy nomination.
‘Rick and Morty’ Season 7 New Cast
One big question still lingering for Rick and Morty Season 7 is who will step in to replace Justin Roiland as the voices of Rick and Morty. Besides co-creating and writing the show, Roiland also provided the voices for these two main characters, along with all the various versions of them and even some smaller background characters like Mr. Poopy Butthole. There are a couple of options for how this can be handled: they could cast a new actor to voice both Rick and Morty, or they might hire two different actors for each character.
On the other hand, the rest of the main supporting cast is expected to return for the upcoming season. This includes the other members of the Smith family, like Chris Parnell, known from Saturday Night Live, who voices Jerry Smith, Spencer Grammer from As the World Turns as Summer Smith, and Sarah Chalke from Scrubs as Beth Smith and Space Beth Smith. There’s also a chance that we might see other familiar recurring actors and side characters make appearances, such as Kari Wahlgren, who lent her voice to Jessica, Brandon Johnson as Mr. Goldenfold, and Keith David, who voiced the President.
When is Rick and Morty Season 7 Coming Out?
Even though Rick and Morty is hugely popular and considered one of the best adult animated shows, it’s currently facing major changes as it prepares for its seventh season. The reason behind all these changes is the departure of Justin Roiland, the original creator and a main actor in the show.
Adult Swim decided to let him go in early 2023 due to serious accusations of domestic abuse. Even though these charges against Roiland were later dismissed, the situation triggered more allegations, which have cast a negative light on his reputation in the eyes of the public. This has led to a lot of uncertainty and adjustments for the show’s future.
Rick and Morty returns to Adult Swim on October 15. The series will air weekly at 11:00 am EST.
Where Can You Watch Rick and Morty Season 7?
Adult Swim is sticking to their promise of delivering the 70 episodes that were planned even before Roiland’s departure. The upcoming season will keep up the pattern of around ten episodes, similar to what we’ve seen before.
Once Season 7 of Rick and Mortywraps up its run on Adult Swim, it’s anticipated that it will also become available on Max.

What is Rick and Morty Season 7 About?
While Season 7 of Rick and Mortyhas kept its storyline under wraps, the ending of Season 6 provided fans with a solid glimpse into what the upcoming season might hold. This particular narrative element was actually introduced quite a while back.
In Season 3 of Rick and Morty, an intriguing scenario unfolded when Rick took a government agent from an intergalactic organization (portrayed by Nathan Fillion) on a journey through his own memories. Among the various events, Rick secured some of the infamous Szechuan Sauce and proceeded to show the agent a surprising truth.
In his universe, an alternate version of himself, referred to as Rick Prime, was responsible for the demise of his wife and daughter. This revelation turned out to be a fabrication by Rick, a fictional backstory designed to buy himself some time. However, the conclusion of Season 5 hinted that there might be more to this story than initially thought.
In a poignant moment, Rick reveals to Morty the emotional tale he had previously dismissed as a “crybaby backstory.” It becomes apparent that Rick Prime, an undisputed version of himself, is indeed the one who caused the tragic demise of Rick’s wife and daughter.
This heart-wrenching revelation has fueled Rick’s relentless quest for vengeance against the alternate Rick responsible for annihilating his family. Despite forming a new familial bond with Morty and the Smiths, Rick remains haunted by his unrelenting pursuit of Rick Prime.
In the climactic finale of Season 6, Rick confides in Morty about his unshakeable determination to dedicate the entirety of Season 7 to tracking down and confronting Rick Prime.
Who is Making Rick and Morty Season 7?
After HBO Max underwent its rebranding to Max, exciting news emerged about the debut Rick and Morty spin-off tailored exclusively for Max: “Rick and Morty: The Anime.” This marks the series’ first foray into spin-offs, potentially heralding a cascade of diverse extensions for the immensely popular show. The launch of this spin-off promises to unlock an expansive multiverse of creative opportunities, should it achieve success.
With Justin Roiland’s reduced involvement, the responsibility of overseeing the show’s direction, scripting, and production likely shifts to co-creator Dan Harmon. Harmon’s adeptness as a showrunner is well-established, both in collaboration with Roiland and independently. His pivotal role in other acclaimed series like “Community” further underscores his capacity to craft captivating and memorable television.
