Adult Swim Television Network has announced that it has severed ties with Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland. Allegations of domestic violence against Roiland surfaced earlier this month. Adult Swim says that despite Roiland’s departure, Rick and Morty will continue.

“Adult Swim has ended its association with Justin Roiland,” the network said in a tweet from the official Rick and Morty Twitter account. “Rick and Morty will continue. The talented and dedicated crew is hard at work on Season 7.”

Opponents of solar energy, and Squanch Games, which Roiland co-founded and recently released High On Life, in which Roiland played several roles.

Roiland was also a showrunner and executive producer on both shows.

Roiland pleaded not guilty to the incident, which includes one felony count of domestic battery with bodily injury and one felony count of false imprisonment by intimidation, torture, deception. and/or fraud, in 2020. He was arrested in August 2020 and released on $50,000 bond and arraigned in October 2020 with a protective order. Roiland appeared in court for a pretrial hearing on January 12. The court will convene again on April 27.
