After Rick And Morty Firing, Justin Roiland Just Lost Two More TV Shows

A day after Adult Swim execs made the decision to cut ties with and fire Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland from the animated hit, more axes have come down in the wake of Roiland’s domestic violence charges going public. His pair of streaming shows, Hulu’s Solar Opposites and the recently released Koala Man, are also distancing themselves from the scandal-tinged creator.

According to THR, both Hulu and the shows’ animation studio 20th Century Animation are pulling up anchor, saying this in a brief statement: 

We have ended our association with Justin Roiland.

Justin Roiland co-created Solar Opposites with Mike McMahon, a Rick and Morty alum who also showruns Star Trek: Lower Decks for Paramount+, while he served as an executive producer and voice actor on Koala Man, which was created by Michael Cusack.

At this time, both Solar Opposites and Koala Man are expected to continue on with upcoming plans. The NSFW sci-fi comedy has been a hit for Hulu across its first three seasons and Disney-poking holiday special, and has been renewed through Season 5 so far. It’s presumed that the other producers will find someone to replace Roiland in the role of Korvo and others, while still maintaining other stars like Thomas Middleditch, Sean Giambrone and Mary Mack.
