I'm Pickle Rick!" How Rick and Morty Season 7 Made Lemonade Out of Justin Roiland's Exit
When Justin Roiland was dropped from "Rick and Morty," fans questioned the fate of the series.
"Get Schwifty!" A Divine Intervention Saved Rick and Morty's Seventh Season
When Justin Roiland was dismissed following charges of domestic battery and false imprisonment, the future of Rick and Morty hung in the balance. Who could possibly fill the giant shoes—er, lab boots—of Rick Sanchez? But, as reported by Screen Rant, a turn of events in the series' own lore may have unknowingly prepped the stage for a world without Roiland.

"Wubba Lubba Dub Dub, the show must go on!" Starting from the first episode of season 6, the Rick Prime storyline had given both versions of Rick—a regular Rick and the elusive Rick Prime—a reason to disguise their voices. This feature was brilliantly laced in the season 6 finale, setting up a convenient pathway for Rick and Morty season 7 to replace Roiland's voice without ripping apart the space-time continuum.

"Well, well, if it isn't the consequences of my own actions." Rick and Morty has always played around with fourth-wall breaks, making meta-jokes that highlight its awareness of being a mere TV show. With the series' proven agility in adapting to the impossible, season 7 could maneuver this voice change more smoothly than most shows could even dream of.
Remember that plot from the season 6 finale? It works whether it's Rick Prime altering his voice to evade detection or C-137 Rick doing a voice switcheroo to bait Rick Prime. It's not a cheat; it's a clever workaround. While other shows might falter when losing a lead actor, Rick and Morty season 7, in the words of Rick himself, "just keeps winning."
After all, the show has dabbled in the absurd, the philosophical, and the downright incomprehensible. Recasting seems like child's play in a universe where you can literally turn yourself into a pickle.
