Hulu Cuts Ties With ‘Solar Opposites’ Co-Creator Justin Roiland – Deadline

Less than a day after Adult Swim severed ties with rick and morty creator Justin Roiland, Hulu has announced that it will also distance itself from the artist/producer accused of domestic violence.

Roiland is the co-creator/executive producer and voice cast member of Hulu’s animated series solar opposites as well as an animated comedy performer from the streamer Koala man.

“We have terminated our association with Justin Roiland,” according to a statement dated 20e Television animation and Hulu Originals.

solar opposites and koala man should continue without Roiland’s participation.

On Tuesday, Adult Swim revealed it would be severing ties with Roiland, who co-created rick and morty with Dan Harmon. The hit series received a massive 70-episode order in 2018 when Adult Swim signed long-term deals with the duo. The show, which was renewed in season 10, has completed six seasons, with four more to go as part of the pickup.

The title characters of rick and morty had been voiced by Roiland. It will be recast.

Roiland was charged with one count of domestic assault with bodily harm and one count of false imprisonment by threat, violence, fraud and/or deception by the Orange County District Attorney’s Office. . The incident in question against a Jane Doe allegedly occurred in January 2020, according to a May 2020 complaint. He pleaded not guilty to the charges in October 2020. The semi-sealed case was kept out of public view until at a hearing on January 12.

Roiland is due to attend a hearing on April 27. No trial date has been set, but Roiland could face up to seven years in prison if convicted.

Roiland’s attorney insisted his client is innocent, noting that “we also have every reason to believe that this case will be dismissed once the district attorney’s office completes its methodical review of the evidence.” .
