Amazon's "Invincible" Renewed for Two More Seasons
On the eve of it's season one finale, Amazon makes sure to let people know that that will not be the last episode of the adult animated series Invincible, based on the comic book from The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman. Today it has been confirmed that the streaming service has renewed the show for two additional seasons. Kirkman, who serves as an executive producer on the show, had this to say:
“I’m extremely thankful to Amazon for the support and dedication they’ve put behind Invincible. 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.”
The series focuses on Mark Grayson (Voiced by Steven Yeun), a 17-year-old budding hero who learns that his father (Voiced by J.K. Simmons) is Omni-Man, the world’s most powerful superhero. He also learns along the way that his dad’s legacy might be more complicated than it appears. The show carries itself in a more mature manner, similar to Amazon's other hit superhero franchise, the live-action show The Boys (Which already has a spin-off in the works). Vernon Sanders, Co-Head of Television at Amazon Studios, expressed his enthusiasm in the show remaining on the service:
“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. 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.”
So for those enjoying narratives that cover the darker side of heroes...Amazon has got you covered for a couple more years. Stay tuned!
