Hot on the heels of the season one finale, Amazon has renewed its hit superhero animated series, Invincible, for not one but two seasons of all new episodes. Based on the comic book of the same name by Robert Kirkman, and illustrated by Cory Walker, & Ryan Ottley. Invincible tells the story of Mark Grayson (voiced by Steven Yeun), on the surface he seems like every other 17-year old, but Mark's Dad just so happens to be Omni-Man (J.K Simmons), who is the most powerful superhero on Earth. However, things aren't as they seem as Omni-Man harbours a dark secret, one that will shake Mark's world to the core.
Speaking about the two-season pick-up, here's what Kirkman had to say;
“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.”
Amazon's co-head of Television, Veron Sanders, added;
“Invincible is a crowning example of how a fresh and edgy approach to the superhero genre can resonate with audiences around the globe and we’re so glad that Invincible, one of our earliest investments in the adult animation genre, has accomplished just that. Robert’s no-holds-barred storytelling coupled with a first-class voice cast delivered on fans’ wildest expectations, and we’re thrilled to be giving them more Invincible.”
Beautifully animated, the series looks exactly like the comic book and with a supporting voice cast that includes Sandra Oh, Seth Rogen, Gillian Jacobs, Andrew Rannells, Zazie Beetz, Mark Hamill, Walton Goggins, Jason Mantzoukas, Zachary Quinto, and Mahershala Ali. Invincible can sit proudly next to fellow Amazon hit The Boys as a fully-fledged adult superhero series. The full first season is available to stream on Amazon Prime, with season 2 expected sometime next year.
