The highly successful animated series is based on Robert Kirkman’s comic book and has already been renewed for a 3rd season.
He may be invincible, but he sure isn’t fast. Almost two years after its March 2021 premiere, Amazon Prime Video’s animated series “Invincible” has announced that it will premiere its second season … in a vague “late 2023” window.
The news was accompanied by an announcement in which protagonist Mark (voiced by Steven Yeun) and Alien Allen (Seth Rogen) dine at a burger joint, where Allen lampoons the long wait between seasons.
“What did you do? It’s been a while,” Rogen jokes as Allen. “I think everyone would agree that it’s been a bit ridiculous since.”
“I was busy writing, designing, storyboarding, dubbing, key posing, interpolation, cleaning, coloring, putting the whole thing together, and all for roughly thousands of shots,” Yeun answers. “So, that’s quite a lot.”
Based on the comic book series of the same name by Robert Kirkman (also known for creating The Walking Dead), Yeun stars as Mark, the son of Earth’s mightiest superhero Omni-Man (voiced by JK Simmons). as he embarks on his own superhero career when he develops superpowers on his 17th birthday. But in the process, he and his mother, Debbie (Sandra Oh), are forced to face the truth about his father, who turns out to be not Earth’s strongest protector, but the biggest threat. The original comic, published by Image Comics and featuring art by Cory Walker and Ryan Ottley, ran for 144 issues from 2003 to 2018, with Season 1 adapting roughly the first 13 issues of the series.
The animated series received positive reviews upon its Season 1 premiere, with praise for the vocal performances of its star cast; In addition to Yeun, Oh and Simmons, the voice actors in the series are Gillian Jacobs, Andrew Rannells, Zazie Beetz, Mark Hamill, Walton Goggins, Jason Mantzoukas, Zachary Quinto, Mahershala Ali, Melise, Kevin Michael Richardson, Gray Griffin and Khary Payton. The series was renewed for seasons 2 and 3 shortly before the season 1 finale.
