| Last updated
Mark your calendars, people as we finally have a release date for the next instalment of Rick and Morty.
Season seven will officially hit the small screen on October 15.
While that is a little more than 50 days left to endure before you can feast your eyes and ears on new adventures for Rick, Morty, Summer, Beth and Gary, we're being promised it'll be worth the wait.
Adult Swim president Michael Ouweleen said in a statement: "Thanks to the talent of the entire show team, we can all enjoy 10 new episodes that yet again raise the bar for comedy and animation.
"This season proves that the geniuses at work on Rick and Morty are just getting started.”
But season seven will be a big change from the previous instalments.
While he was no longer facing criminal charges, Adult Swim stuck to their guns and parted ways with him.
The company revealed it was on the hunt for a new voice actor who would be able to portray some of the biggest characters in Rick and Morty, as well as other shows where Roiland worked.
In its description of the seventh season, Adult Swim made reference to the change.
“Rick and Morty are back and sounding more like themselves than ever!" the synopsis read.
"It’s season seven, and the possibilities are endless: what’s up with Jerry? EVIL Summer?!
"And will they ever go back to the high school?! Maybe not! But let’s find out!
"There’s probably less piss than last season. Rick and Morty, 100 years! Or at least until season 10!”
Everyone is waiting for the season seven trailer, which will reveal what Roiland's characters will sound like without him behind the microphone.
Some fans have said the show won't be the same without the co-creator and have even threatened to not watch the upcoming series.
After the charges against him were dropped, Roiland released a statement saying: "I have always known that these claims were false - and I never had any doubt that this day would come.
"I'm thankful that this case has been dismissed but, at the same time, I'm still deeply shaken by the horrible lies that were reported about me during this process.
"Most of all, I'm disappointed that so many people were so quick to judge without knowing the facts, based solely on the word of an embittered ex trying to bypass due process and have me 'canceled'.
"That it may have succeeded, even partially, is shameful.
"However, now that the legal case has ended, I'm determined to move forward and focus both on my creative projects and restoring my good name."
