Invincible season 2 is nearly upon us, but when can fans of the critically-acclaimed Amazon Prime Video series anticipate new episodes?
2021 was full of comic book and superhero-based content. But outside of the heavy-hitters from Marvel and DC was Invincible – an Amazon Prime Video original show that had the world talking for a very long time. And virtually all of that chatter had nothing to say but good things.
Based on the Image Comics series by Robert Kirkman, Cory Walker and Ryan Ottley, the animated series premiered in March 2021, and swiftly became one of the most talked-about shows of the year – which says a lot considering what it was up against in its own genre.
Known for taking a mature approach, it adapted its source material in a way that was loyal to it and also translated well to screen. Parts of it were hard to watch, but it was also impossible to look away for viewers who were hooked by what they were witnessing.
It’s now been almost two years since Invincible‘s eight-episode first season concluded, but the show will be back for a second. The question is, when can we expect news on it?
Invincible season 2 release date predictions
Invincible season 2 is on its way and will premiere in 2023. The show’s official Twitter account promised that there would be news on season 2 in January, confirming that an update would be announced sometime between January 2 and 31. Now that January is here, it’s only a matter of time.
With that in mind, new episodes could premiere as early as February, but don’t be too surprised if Amazon Prime Video chooses to hold it closer to spring or summer due to season 1’s success at that time of year.
As for why it’s been taking so long for the show’s second season 2 release, showrunner Simon Racioppa confirmed in an interview with ComicBookMovie last year that, as it’s a big show, to “do it properly takes time.”
At this point, fans are more than ready for Invincible season 2, and the fact that we could have an update about it this month is very exciting indeed.
All eight episodes of Invincible‘s first season are available to watch on Amazon Prime Video now.
What’s Invincible About?
Written by Kirkman with art from Cory Walker and Ryan Ottley, Invincible follows the adventures of Mark Grayson (voiced by Steven Yeun) as he adjusts to his newly awakened superpowers. As the son of Earth’s mightiest defender, Omni-Man (voiced by J.K Simmons), Mark is expected to be unbeatable, but his journey to becoming a hero is filled with blood, guts, and tears. Season 1 of the show followed Mark as he discovered his father is not as noble as everyone thinks, giving superhero fans the best “evil Superman” story ever created.
While the series was criticized for its rushed animation process, the well-paced writing and stellar voice performances won our collective hearts. And with Season 2 spending so long in the oven, the series should give us an even greater spectacle when it returns. The star-studded voice cast of Invincible also counts Jason Mantzoukas, Sandra Oh, Seth Rogen, Mark Hamill, and Mahershala Ali. The voice cast has been recording episodes since last April, so it shouldn’t take long before we get a more precise release window.
Season 1 of Invincible is available right now on Prime Video. Season 2 will premiere somewhere in 2023. For more on Invincible, watch our exclusive interview with Robert Kirkman below.
