Adult Swim is releasing the Rick and Morty Season 7 official trailer on Monday – but we have a new key art poster that raises questions now.
So will Monday be the day that we learn who is replacing Justin Roiland beginning with the seventh season of Rick and Morty? Unless Adult Swim has another swerve planned (we hope they do), it looks like that will be the case because the late-night programming block confirmed with the release of a new key art poster that the official trailer will drop on Monday, September 25th. As for that key art poster? Well, here are some reasons to be concerned. Is Mr. Poopybutthole working with Rick Prime? What’s the deal with that look on Rick’s face – even in the midst of that loving embrace from Morty? And what’s the deal with what appears to be all of that spaghetti (with meatballs)?
And since we’ve been talking about it so much, here’s the Season 7 opening credits to Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty – followed by a look back at what we know about the season so far:

Rick and Morty Team on Replacing Roiland, Writing Team Stepping Up
Here’s a look back at what Rick and Morty Co-EP Steve Levy and Adult Swim President Michael Ouweleen had to share regarding Justin Roiland and the new voice actor(s) being brought aboard – as well as how the Adult Swim series’ writing team kept the ship going (all the way to another Emmy nomination – and another possible win):
On Roiland Being Replaced, Voice Acting Being Just One Part of Series & If Viewers Will Notice
Ouweleen: “The idea is that we feel that they are the same characters. Listen: voices are obviously super important in an animated series. And, of course, none of us wanted to go through what we went through. But I’ve been in animation for a long time, and I know that what makes a series is its different parts coming together. If the voices are obviously a big part, there is also the writing of the characters, their design… I have reason to believe that the transition will go well.”
Levy: “The quality of writing has never been better, and all the screenwriters have stayed. I don’t think anyone will bat an eyelid hearing the new voices.”
Ouweleen: “[On recasting process] But it’s looking good. It’s a rather unique situation… I’ll take an example: there have been several great Bugs Bunny voice actors, and I love what Jeff Bennett has done with them. But it’s not Mel Blanc! And yet we recognize the character. I even think that for ‘Rick and Morty’ we will do even better… It will be fine. It’ll be great.”
On How “Rick and Morty” Team Responded to Justin Roiland’s Departure
Levy: The pill was hard to swallow. We were shocked and disturbed by what happened. But we stuck together, and we put all our energy into the series. We decided to stay positive, and in the end, we produced the best drawings, scripts, and animations of the entire series. And Dan Harmon [the co-creator of Rick and Morty] has always been in the trenches with us every step of the way. He always has an eye on everything, and sometimes that means he asks us to rewrite entire scripts, but for the good of the series. He never walked away after Justin left.
Ouweleen: There is no guide on how to react to this kind of thing. And it’s not normal to experience that. Of course, it’s hard; of course, it hurts. But when a whole team works on a series, the series actually becomes more important than one person. Season 7 will be pivotal; we know it, but I think we’ve never done better so far.
