Ahead of its anticipated Season 1 finale on Friday, Amazon Studios has renewed Robert Kirkman’s Invincible for two more seasons. Seasons 2 and 3 of the adult animated series will stream exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide.
“I’m extremely thankful to Amazon for the support and dedication they’ve put behind Invincible,” said Kirkman. “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.”
Based on the Skybound/Image comic by Kirkman, Cory Walker and Ryan Ottley, Invincible is an hourlong, animated superhero show that revolves around 17-year-old Mark Grayson (Steven Yeun), who’s just like every other guy his age — except that his father is the most powerful superhero on the planet, Omni-Man (J.K. Simmons). But as Mark develops powers of his own, he discovers that his father’s legacy might not be as heroic as it seems.
The voice cast also includes 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, among others.
Invincible is Kirkman’s second-longest-running comic book series, wrapping in February 2018 after a 15-year run.
The series is produced by Skybound and executive produced by Kirkman, Simon Racioppa, David Alpert (The Walking Dead), Catherine Winder (Star Wars: The Clone Wars) with supervising director Jeff Allen (Avengers Assemble) and Linda Lamontagne serving as casting director.
“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,” said Vernon Sanders, Co-Head of Television at Amazon Studios. “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.”
