Invincible Season 2: What to expect?
Invincible is Kirkman’s second-longest-running comic book series, wrapping in February 2018 after a 15-year run. The new season is expected to continue the basic premise which follows an adult animated superhero series that revolves around 17-year-old Mark Grayson, who’s just like every other guy his age – except his father is the most powerful superhero on the planet, Omni-Man. But as Mark develops powers of his own, he discovers his father’s legacy may not be as heroic as it seems. “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.” Adding, “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.”
The main voice cast who are expected to reprise their roles for the new season includes Steven Yeun, 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, among others. It’s currently unclear whether Zachary Quinto will return to voice Robot, and if Ezra Miller will return as D.A. Sinclair. 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 Season 2 Episodes and Streaming Options
The forthcoming season is speculated to have at least 8 episodes with an average runtime of 42 to 49 minutes, which will drop on a weekly basis, just like the first season. It is speculated that it is intended to follow the same framework as the prior episodes to be consistent. On the other hand, we’d also like to point out that, as of January 21, 2023, the exact titles and synopsis for the episodes cannot be confirmed. So, we request that viewers be patient for this information to be verified and stream the first season to recall all the events which will transpire in the new season.
The first season of Invincible, along with the upcoming seasons, will be accessible exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide. The first season’s eight episodes began airing on March 25, 2021, and are now available to watch for $9 per month. On the platform, you may subscribe to Prime Video as a stand-alone streaming subscription. So, it is time for you to renew your membership plans and explore another genre of TV series and movies from the massive catalog that the streaming service offers to its members.
We here at InvincibleHQ might edge y’all a lot, but it’s only because we love this show just as much as you. The team is working hard on Season 2 (and 3!!!) as you saw in the teaser today. We’ll keep you informed and entertained as best we can this year!
