After more than a year, the popular animated TV show “Rick and Morty” delivered a seventh season that aired on Oct. 15, 2023. With new episodes and voice actors, there is a lot to discover in the new season.

“Rick and Morty” is an American sitcom television series that first aired on Adult Swim in 2013. Throughout the years, the show has accumulated many fans who enjoy watching regularly. According to Adult Swim, “Rick and Morty” has been viewed over 10 billion times globally and is a $100 million merchandising and media franchise. The show follows an old mad scientist, Rick, who goes on intergalactic adventures across the universe alongside his overly nervous grandson, Morty. So far, the producers of the show have made six seasons with much success, and are currently releasing episodes of the seventh season every Sunday.

The seventh season of “Rick and Morty” will not have a particular plot to follow, as each episode revolves around a different situation. Since the premiere of the first episode, the show has been putting out one episode each week on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim channel. The final episode, “Fear No Mort,” will air on Dec. 17, 2023, concluding the end of the season. Although the show has been ongoing for more than 10 years, season seven will not be the end of the show. As stated by co-creator Dan Harmon, the end of “Rick and Morty” will come when they have made a total of 10 seasons altogether, meaning that the show still has a long way to go.

The seventh season also unveiled two new voice actors, Ian Cordoni and Harry Belden to voice Rick and Morty respectively after Justin Roiland. Justin Roiland was a voice actor for both Rick and Morty and was the other co-creator of the show, but was fired due to ongoing allegations of domestic violence, sexual assault and inappropriate behavior in the workplace. Upon hearing the new voiceovers for the first time, many fans noticed the change and expressed their observations.

“It’s kind of weird, and I don’t really like it because I didn’t expect their voices to sound different. Rick’s voice just isn’t as raspy as it used to be,” FHS freshman Fiona Jones said. “I think that Morty’s new voice actor sounds the same, like I didn’t even notice it at first. But to be honest, I just got used to it after a couple of episodes. I know a lot of fans were mad about it too.”

The new season brings a good deal of excitement, as “Rick and Morty” continues to be seen as a successful and favorable show by many. With many upcoming seasons and episodes, there is much for people to watch out for.
