Are you a fan of the superhit adult comedy animated show, Rick and Morty? If so, then you’re probably wondering what we know about Rick and Morty Season 7. Well, it looks like fans won’t have to wait much longer for some answers! With the confirmed release date of 2023, we’ll get to know quite a few things including when Rick and Morty Season 7 comes out, the cast, possible storyline, any trailer, speculations, what to expect from the season, and much more.
Without any further ado, let’s get started on the upcoming Rick and Morty 7 news! Adult Swim.
What is the Rick and Morty Season 7 Episode 1 release date?
After allegations of domestic abuse led to Justin Roiland, co-creator of Rick and Morty, being dropped by Adult Swim, the network announced plans to recast the titular roles with new actors. This change coincides with the upcoming seventh season of the show.
The Rick and Morty Season 7 Episode 1 release date has been confirmed for Sunday, October 15 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT on Adult Swim.
According to a press release, the Rick and Morty Season 7 Episode 1 will have a global debut in over 134 countries and will be available in 38 languages. In the United States, new episodes will be available for purchase from digital retailers the day after they premiere on Adult Swim. However, streaming on platforms like Max (which, like Adult Swim, falls under Warner Bros. Discovery) won’t be available until the following year, 2024.
While the recasting isn’t explicitly addressed in the press release from Adult Swim president Michael Ouweleen, it is implied in his statement:
“It’s happening. Thanks to the talent of the entire show team, we can all enjoy 10 new episodes that yet again raise the bar for comedy and animation. This season proves that the geniuses at work on Rick and Morty are just getting started.”
The season summary, while still cryptic, offers some insight into what to expect:
“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 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 ten!”
As the show continues to gain popularity, let’s keep our eyes peeled for more updates about Rick and Morty Season 7!
How many will there be Rick and Morty Season 7 episodes?
While we don’t know the exact number of episodes that will be featured in Season 7 of Rick and Morty, we do know that there will be at least 10 episodes. This is the same number of episodes that were featured in Rick and Morty Season 6. However, the creators have hinted that they may be planning more than 10 episodes for the upcoming season. So, fans should stay tuned for more information on the exact number of episodes that will be included in Season 7.
Who will voice Rick and Morty?
A lingering question that remains unanswered pertains to who will take over the roles of Justin Roiland as the voices behind Rick and Morty, as well as numerous other characters featured on the show.
Justin Roiland, who co-founded the series alongside Dan Harmon, was dismissed by Adult Swim following allegations of serious domestic violence and other unacceptable conduct.
Notably, Roiland’s voice parts in “Solar Opposites,” another animated series he co-crafted, have already been recast and revealed alongside the trailer for the new season.
Enthusiasts had been anticipating a comparable update regarding the seventh season of Rick and Morty. However, there has been no mention of Roiland’s replacement or involvement in the upcoming season.
The official description for the impending season seems to provide a hint about the situation:
“Rick and Morty are back and sounding more like themselves than ever! It’s season seven, and the possibilities are endless,” it declares.
Who will be part of the Rick and Morty Season 7 cast, characters?
The voice artist for the main characters, ‘Rick and Morty’, is not announced after taking off Justin Roiland, the show’s co-creator. In addition, Chris Parnell, who voices Jerry Smith, Sarah Chalke as Beth Smith, and Spencer Grammer as Summer Smith will all be returning to their respective roles. It has also been confirmed that the central Smith family will unite like always, so fans can rest easy knowing they will see the return of each Rick and Morty cast member. Justin Roiland as Rick Sanchez and Morty Smith will be joined by Chris Parnell, Sarah Chalke as Beth Smith, and Spencer Grammer as Summer Smith in Season 7.
• TBA – Rick Sanchez
• Chris Parnell as Jerry Smith
• Spencer Grammer as Summer Smith
• Sarah Chalke as Beth Smith and Space Beth
Rick and Morty Season 6 saw Susan Sarandon make a comeback as everyone’s favored psychiatrist and fans are also suspecting Dr. Wong along with Susan to come back again in season seven too. We can also expect to see some exciting new characters, as the showrunners have been teasing some interesting new additions to the show.
What will be the Rick and Morty Season 7 plot?
Rick and Morty burst onto the scene in 2013, introducing viewers to the dynamic duo of grandfather and grandson. Super-scientist Rick drags his easily distressed grandson along on wild adventures across exotic planets and different dimensions. Summer, Jerry, and Beth – Rick and Morty’s family members – are often dragged into the chaos, facing the consequences of their escapades. Each season of the show offers a hilarious representation of these interdimensional misadventures. While Season 5 left fans disappointed, Season 6 has taken off with a bang! Viewers are eagerly awaiting the next installment of Rick and Morty to be truly interesting as well.
Rick and Morty Season 6 Sets Up Season 7 Storyline
In the finale, i.e., Rick and Morty season 6 episode 9, and episode 10, an exciting plot is set up for season 7. We see Rick decide to open up more and let Morty in on his hunt for Rick Prime. This is a major plot point for the upcoming season and Morty’s uncovering of an upsetting truth will play a big role as well. We also get to see the multiverse play a part as Rick gives Morty a working Star Wars lightsaber, which creates an unexpected tunnel when it drops perfectly vertically. With all of this in mind, let’s take a look at what we can expect from Rick and Morty season 7.
The story of Rick and Morty season 7 is still largely a mystery, but there are some hints as to what fans can expect. The season 6 finale made it clear that Rick is on a mission to save the universe, and this could be the main focus of season 7. It’s also possible that the show will revisit some of the storylines from previous seasons, as well as explore new ones. With the show’s unique blend of science fiction and comedy, there’s no telling what Rick and Morty have in store for viewers. Be sure to stay tuned for more information as it becomes available!

Will there be Rick and Morty Season 8?
Following the immense success of its third season, Adult Swim made the decision to extend Rick and Morty by an impressive 70 more episodes. As of now, 30 of these episodes have been produced and distributed across the fourth, fifth, and sixth seasons.
Although one of the show’s co-creators, Dan Harmon had previously shown interest in longer seasons, it appears that the show will maintain its current format of 10 episodes per season for the foreseeable future. This trajectory would lead the series to a total of 10 seasons upon the conclusion of this contractual agreement.
The future course of the show is still uncertain. It remains to be seen whether the series would conclude after reaching its planned 10 seasons or if the creative team will engage in negotiations to continue the show’s momentum beyond that point.
What are Season 7 fan theories?
Season 7 Fan Theories have been floating around since the season 6 finale, and there is a lot to unpack. One of the most popular theories is that the 22% nicer Rick we met in the last episode is Jerry’s unemployed doppelganger from an alternate universe. This would explain why Rick has been so against time travel in previous seasons. While nothing has been confirmed yet, it will be interesting to see if this theory holds up in the upcoming season.
