Invincible has quickly come on the scene to become one of the most acclaimed new series of the year, popular with both critics and audiences. Thus, it’s no surprise that Amazon Studios was eager to renew the Robert Kirkman series for not only a Season 2, but a Season 3 as well.
The big two-season renewal was announced on Twitter Thursday in a video with Kirkman and Oscar-nominated actor Steven Yeun, who voices the show’s main character.
As reported by Variety, Kirkman expressed his gratitude and enthusiasm in a separate statement as well, saying, “I’m extremely thankful to Amazon for the support and dedication they’ve put behind Invincible. The comic book is truly a love letter to a genre that Cory (Walker) and I grew up reading and loving, and it’s been a gratifying journey to watch our characters come to life again through the animated series. We’re beyond excited to continue this story for at least two more seasons.”
Invincible has an absolutely unbeatable voice cast including Yeun, J.K. Simmons, Zazie Beetz, Gillian Jacobs, Jason Mantzoukas, Mahershala Ali, Sandra Oh, Seth Rogen, Andrew Rannells, Mark Hamill, Walton Goggins, Zachary Quinto, and plenty more.
Based on Kirkman’s comic series, it tells the story of Mark Grayson (Yeun), a teenager whose father (Simmons) is the most powerful superhero on the planet. It’s a coming-of-age superhero story told in a way that we’ve never seen before, with the hour-long animated episodes not afraid to delve into territory that most superhero properties would never dream of touching.
This major new announcement comes as the series drops its season 1 finale, concluding its first 8-episode run. You can stream all of the episodes on Amazon Prime Video.
