Why is it important to find a new voice actor(s) for Rick and Morty
Rick and Morty He now faces the difficult task of replacing someone who played the main roles as well as a host of minor and recurring characters. Given that Adult Swim is still pursuing their original plans to continue the show, it’s critical that they find a suitable replacement or replacements. As the titular characters, it’s impossible for the network to take any other direction, and with the show’s popularity already declining steadily since season three — season six averaged fewer than 600,000 American viewers each episode — Rick and Morty It could risk cancellation if it loses more viewership.
