Who’s Going to Voice Rick and Morty Now? Maybe you?
Wow! 48 hours and everyone connected to Justin Roiland are dropping him like he’s hot! But who’s going to be the next Rick and Morty? Adult Swim posted a tweet showing that Season Seven will continue on without Roiland. And Hulu dropped him from Solar Opposites and the new Koala Man.
It’s been only a little over 48 hours but speculations on how the next season and beyond will proceed. Many cartoons are not alien to changing their characters’ voices for whatever reason with various results. Sealab 2021 lost Harry Goz as the voice of Captain Murphy after season 2. The show did not go past season 3 after they wrote Murphy out of the show. And with good cause, sometimes losing a character like that is just too much.
Family Guy and the Simpsons replaced characters/or voices that were racially insensitive. And Squidbillies fired and replaced a regular. And this happens in non-animated shows all the time. Rosanne actually replaced the main character, which the show is named after, following the star’s tweets.
Screenrant.com suggested a great idea for Season 7 of rotating voices. Perhaps in every episode, a different duo takes the mantle and becomes Rick and Morty. Maybe it could be an interactive test run. The fans could decide who they like the best!
Adult Swim has said they will go into Season 10 without Justin, so that leaves a window up for someone to step to voice Rick and Morty, but who? Many names are flying around, but twinfinite.net had some solid and (some not-so-solid) ideas for who could. Who do you think could do it? Do you have the voice talent chops? I can do a solid Yoda, but I’ve never tried Rick and Morty.
