After one similar decision by Adult SwimHulu and Squanch Games have cut ties with Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland. After his domestic crime charges came to light earlier this month, both the streamer and game studio parted ways with Roiland, releasing statements confirming the split.
Hulu and 20th TV Animation’s statement reads, “We have ended our association with Justin Roiland” (via THR).
Roiland had an overall development deal with 20th Television Animation, which Disney has now terminated. In recent years, he has helped create the animated series Opposites of the Sun with Mike McMahan for Hulu and voiced one of its main characters, Korvo. He also created The Paloni Show! Halloween Special! last October for the produced streamer and executive Koala man – an animated series that debuted earlier this month.
Meanwhile, Squanch Games posted a statement on its official Twitter page stating that Justin Roiland’s resignation from the company has been received and that the team will continue to support and improve the newly released High on life.

Justin Roiland has pleaded not guilty to the charges against him and is scheduled to appear in court for another hearing involving the charges on April 27. Although it was announced that his Rick and Morty characters would be reworked for future seasons, there is currently no word on how Opposites of the Sun will address this separation.
