Hulu is cutting ties with «Rick and Morty» co-creator and co-star Justin Roiland, the company said in a statement.
Roiland co-created the Hulu animated series «Solar Opposites» with Mike McMahan and previously voiced the character of Korvo. He was also the executive producer of «Koala Man,» another Hulu production.
Both shows will continue without Roiland’s participation, the company said.
NBC News previously reported that Roiland was charged with two counts of felony domestic violence in California’s Orange County Superior Court stemming from a January 2020 incident.
Roiland, who has pleaded not guilty, appeared in court for a pretrial hearing on January 12. In a statement, Roiland’s attorney wrote that his client is innocent and expects the case to be dismissed.
“We look forward to clearing Justin’s name and helping him move forward as quickly as possible,” attorney T. Edward Welbourn wrote.
On Tuesday, the Adult Swim cable television channel announced that it had cut ties with Roiland.
Squanch Games, the video game studio Roiland co-founded, also announced Tuesday that Roiland had resigned a week earlier, days after NBC News’ initial report on his domestic violence case.
