The animated ultra violent superhero animated series, “Invincible,” has been renewed for Seasons 2 and 3 at Amazon.
The announcement was made on Thursday on Twitter by Robert Kirkman alongside Academy Award nominee Steven Yeun, who voices the show’s main character. The news comes ahead of the Season 1 finale, which will debut on Amazon on April 30.
“I’m extremely thankful to Amazon for the support and dedication they’ve put behind Invincible,” Kirkman said in a separate statement. “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.”
Kirkman’s unique coming of age superhero story is a blend of Avengers and Kick-Ass. The series has some true heartfelt and hilarious comedic moments. But don’t get it twisted, this isn’t your father’s superhero show. The series can be down right bloody and brutal. After all this is written by the man who gave us The Walking Dead.
Along with Yeun lending his voice talents to the series, the show also features the voice talents of J.K. Simmons, Sandra Oh, Seth Rogen, Gillian Jacobs, Andrew Rannells, Zazie Beetz, Mark Hamill, Walton Goggins, Jason Mantzoukas, Zachary Quinto, Mahershala Ali, Melise, Kevin Michael Richardson, Grey Griffin, Khary Payton, and more.
“Invincible” is produced by Skybound and executive produced by Kirkman, Simon Racioppa, David Alpert, and Catherine Winder. Jeff Allen is supervising director and Linda Lamontagne serves as casting director.
The comic series (which has now ended) is now in various trade paperbacks and can be purchase at your local comic book store or downloaded on the Comixology app.
