“Rick and Morty” Season 7 Trailer Unveils New Voice Actors

In case you missed it yesterday, Adult Swim unveiled the first trailer for Rick and Morty season 7, which includes new voice talent for the two main characters. Those new voice actors replace co-creator Justin Roiland, who is no longer with the series after misconduct allegations.

So who are the new voice actors? For now, Adult Swim isn’t telling—their names will be revealed when the show premieres on October 15.

“We want the show to speak for itself,” an Adult Swim insider explained to The Hollywood Reporter. “We believe in the strength of the season and our new voices, and we want to preserve the viewing experience for fans.”

Season 7 boasts ten new episodes and will be a welcome relief to the legion of Rick and Morty fans who have been watching the real-life Roiland drama unfold for months. Roiland was stripped of his overall deal this past January after being charged with felony domestic abuse in Orange County, California. More troubling news about Roiland followed, including his sending abusive text messages to a fan and unprofessional workplace behavior. The felony charges were dropped in March, yet Roiland’s no longer a part of the series.

You’ll notice when you watch the new trailer that both Rick and Morty sound very similar. Adult Swim sought “sound-alike” voice talent and has promised that their personalities, intrapersonal relationship, and all the cosmic hijinx, high and low, Rick and Morty has brought to viewers for six previous seasons will remain unchanged.

Here’s how the official synopsis for season 7 depicts the changes that have been swirling behind the scenes of one of TV’s most audacious animated comedies:

Rick and Morty are back and sounding more like themselves than ever! It’s season seven, and the possibilities are endless: what’s up with Jerry? EVIL Summer?! And will they ever go back to the high school?! Maybe not! But let’s find out! There’s probably less piss than last season. Rick and Morty, 100 years! Or at least until season 10!”

Check out the trailer for season 7 below. Rick and Morty returns on October 15 at 11 p.m. on Adult Swim:
