“Rick and Morty will continue,” the tweet said. “The talented and dedicated crew are hard at work on Season 7.”
Court records show that Roiland is facing felony charges in Orange County of corporal injury on a spouse or cohabitant and false imprisonment in connection with an alleged Jan. 19, 2020, incident. He pleaded not guilty and was released from jail after his arrest on $50,000 bond.
His next court hearing is scheduled for April 27.
NBC News first reported the existence of the criminal case earlier this month. According to the criminal complaint, the allegations involve a woman identified only as Jane Doe, whom Roiland was dating.
In a statement earlier this month, Roiland’s attorney T. Edward Welbourn called the media’s coverage of the case “inaccurate.” It wasn’t immediately clear what the attorney considered to be inaccurate.
