Invincible Season 2 is one of the most popular and acclaimed animated shows of recent times. Developed from Robert Kirkman’s comic book series, the creator of The Walking Dead, Invincible follows the adventures of Mark Grayson, a teenager who inherits superpowers from his father, Nolan Grayson, aka Omni-Man, the world’s most powerful superhero. However, Mark soon discovers that his father is not the hero he thought he was and that he has a dark and bloody secret that will change his life forever.
Invincible First Season
- The first season of Invincible premiered on Prime Video in March 2021 and received rave reviews from critics and fans alike. The show received praise for its mature and complex storytelling, stunning animation, stellar voice cast, and brutal and shocking action scenes.
- The season finale left viewers on a cliffhanger, with Mark facing off against his father in a fierce fight that left him battered and broken, while Nolan revealed his true origins and motives before fleeing the planet.
- Prime Video renewed Invincible for two more seasons in April 2021, just a day before the season finale aired. Since then, fans have eagerly awaited any news or updates on when they can expect to see more of Mark and his superhero friends.
- This article will round up everything we know about Invincible Season 2, including its release date, trailer, cast, plot, future seasons, and more.
Invincible Season 2 Release date
- Invincible Season 2 has yet to have an official release date. However, Prime Video has announced that it will arrive on its streaming service in late 2023. It means fans must wait almost two years since the first season ended to see what happens next.
- This long gap is because animation is a time-consuming and labor-intensive process that requires a lot of work from many talented people. As Mark himself explained in a meta teaser trailer released in January 2023.
- He has been busy writing, designing, storyboarding, voice acting, key posing, inbetweening, cleaning up, color slapping, compiling everything, and doing it for thousands of shots, roughly.
- The teaser trailer also featured Mark’s alien friend Allen the Alien (voiced by Seth Rogen), who asked him what he has been up to and why it has taken so long for season 2 to come out. The trailer ends with Allen saying he can’t wait to see what happens next, and Mark agrees.
Invincible Season 2 Trailer
- The teaser trailer is the only footage from Invincible Season 2. It did not reveal any plot details or new characters, but it did show Mark and Allen having a friendly chat at a Burger Mart diner while wearing their superhero costumes.
- The trailer announced that Invincible season 2 will be available on Prime Video in late 2023.
It also poked fun at the long wait and the hard work of making the show.
- We expect to see a full trailer closer to the release date that will give us a glimpse of what to expect from the second season’s story and action.
