The animated science fiction sitcom Rick and Morty is known for its dark humor and satirical take on various sci-fi and pop culture tropes. Season 7 of the sitcom premiered on Sunday night, with Adult Swim finally revealing the names of voice actors who replaced Justin Roiland.

For the unversed, Adult Swim terminated Roiland following his domestic violence charge in January. He had been the co-creator of the animated science fiction sitcom alongside Dan Harmon and had provided voices for various characters on the show. However, in March, the Orange County District Attorney’s Office dismissed the charge.

Although the new voices for the characters were initially introduced in the Season 7 trailer in September, the actors’ identities remained undisclosed. Now, the mystery is unveiled, as Ian Cardoni and Harry Belden have taken on the roles of Rick Sanchez and Morty Smith.

Their names were prominently featured in the credits of Season 7, Episode 1. Notably, this episode departed from the usual opening credits, including the line “Created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon,” a departure from the format used in previous seasons. This change was introduced just before the show’s highly-anticipated premiere, Adult Swim said, “We’re actually going to continue to keep the names of the new voice cast actors confidential until Sunday night’s East Coast premiere,” as per Variety.

Following the Season 7 premiere, fans had a wide range of reactions. On one side, some believed that the new voices didn’t quite honor the legacy of Rick and Morty, while on the other, there were those who praised the new actors, commending their performance. Here are some reactions:

“Rick and Morty” tracks the escapades of the namesake duo, a quirky grandfather and his easily influenced grandson, as they embark on interdimensional journeys. Alongside the trailer, Adult Swim playfully teased the new voices in the logline for the forthcoming season: “Rick and Morty are back and sounding more like themselves than ever,” the summary reads.

“Rick and Morty” made its debut in 2013 and has garnered critical acclaim ever since. Season 7, which premiered on Adult Swim on October 15, brings with it a fresh batch of 10 new episodes.
