Rick and Morty season 7 is almost over! This latest season took surprisingly less than expected to get to us given the show had to be upended due to co-creator Justin Roiland being fired in January following domestic assault allegations. That meant not only replacing creative elements of the show but a key voice actor as well.

Yes, that's right. We have new voice actors for season 7. Ian Cardoni is now the voice of Rick Sanchez and Harry Belden is the voice of Morty Smith, both previously voiced by Roiland. They join the three returning main cast members Chris Parnell as Jerry Smith, Sarah Chalke as Beth Smith, and Spencer Grammer as Summer Smith.

I've been keeping up with this season and I'll be honest, the voice actor changes have felt pretty seamless. There have been some valid complaints about the show's episodes in terms of story — though I've personally been pleased with most of the episodes so far, and fan sentiment has changed as the season has progressed — but the voice acting itself has not been an issue.

Speaking of story, we potentially got a preview of what to expect in Rick and Morty season 7 in the final episode of season 6. In that episode, Rick rambles "Rick and Morty season seven. Hunting my nemesis. Maybe trying to stay healthy while doing it, juggling plates – not every episode, Morty, it could be all happening in the background. Who knows?"

And while we're still not 100% sure what will ultimately happen in the rest of season 7, we do have a trailer that gives us some insight. Aside from Rick potentially turning himself into a leg, we see the mad scientist attend therapy (as a hologram) and continue hunting Rick Prime. We also get "Rick's famous spaghetti" because, well... why not? Check out the full season 7 trailer below.

We also got a sneak preview of what to expect in season 7 episode 1 — How Poopy Got His Poop Back. Adult Swim posted the first episode's cold open to its YouTube channel and it shows us a depressed, drunken, drugged-out Mr. Poopybutthole languishing in the Smith household. You can watch the entire cold open below if you want, or wait to watch season 7 episode 1 if you don't want to be spoiled.

So with that all said, here's everything you need to know to watch Rick and Morty season 7 online.
