New voice actors for Rick and Morty have finally been revealed

The dynamic duo are back for a seventh season, along with a few changes

As the seventh season of Rick and Morty hits our screens, the adult-comedy has finally revealed its new voice actors.

It comes after months of speculation about the sci-fi series, following Justin Roiland’s departure earlier this year.

However, fans have been left impressed with the new voices of the show as the latest season debuted over the weekend.

Check out the trailer below:

Prior to leaving the Adult Swim series, Roiland had voiced the titular grandfather and grandson duo for six seasons.

However, the network opted to end its relationship with the Rick and Morty showrunner after he was charged with domestic violence offences.

The incident took place in 2020 and he pleaded not guilty to one count of domestic battery with corporal injury and one count of false imprisonment by menace, violence, fraud and/or deceit.

While the charges were dropped, it left the show without a voice for its two main characters.

Following this, execs were on a mission to find a replacement and one that sounded virtually identical to the previous seasons.

Understandably, Adult Swim was eager to let the new series ‘speak for itself’ with the actors' identities only being revealed as the first episode aired on 15 October.

Now, it’s been confirmed that Ian Cardoni is the new voice of Rick Sanchez, while Harry Belden voices his grandson Morty Smith.

The first episode of season seven aired on 15 October.

It’s the first lead voice role for both actors, with Cardoni previously narrating as Jack Sparrow for WrestleMania 36 and 37.

Meanwhile, Belden has had roles in Chicago Med, Proven Innocent and Christmas…Again?!

They aren’t the only new cast members joining the sci-fi sitcom, with Downton Abbey's Dan Stevens also taking over the role of Korvo in the latest season.

As fans reacted to the news and their debut episode, many shared their thoughts on X (formerly Twitter).

One wrote: “Rick sounds better in the episode than the trailer little off and in other moments it’s more noticeable but so far pretty good but Morty is almost perfect!”

Another tweeted: “Honestly it’s a breath of fresh air, the episode is amazing so far, and the voices feel oddly more invested.”

With another 70 episodes set to air, it seems fans will have plenty of time to get used to the changes.

You can now watch Rick and Morty on Adult Swim every Sunday at 11pm EST.
