Just last month, Amazon confirmed that new episodes of Invincible would be arriving sometime in 2023. Fans have had to endure a two-year wait for Mark Grayson’s alter-ego to take flight once again. Unfortunately, his comeback is happening a bit later than most of us would have hoped. Making good on yesterday’s promise to share big news about the series’ future, Amazon has finally released a teaser for Invincible season 2, revealing that the show will return near the end of this year.
Similar to the photo released on Thursday, the clip features Invincible and Allen the Alien dining together at Burger Mart. Admittedly, it’s nice to see both heroes again. But it doesn’t seem as if the footage is taken from one of the upcoming episodes. Instead, it looks like something the producers whipped up to give fans an idea of the new season’s release date. More importantly, it lets them explain why it’s taken so long for the show to resume its transmission. Allen (voiced by Seth Rogen) observes that “everyone agrees it’s been, like, a little ridiculous how long it’s been” since their characters last met up in the first season finale. Luckily, Mark has a good reason for the delay.
With help from a behind-the-scenes montage, Mark explains he’s been hard at work doing everything it takes to put an animated series together. This includes “writing, designing, storyboarding, voice acting, key posing, in-betweening, cleaning up, color slapping, comping the whole thing, and all that for, you know, roughly thousands of shots.” In short, there’s still a lot of work to be done on the new episodes. This might explain why the animation in the teaser looks a little choppy. But for now, all we can do is hope that season 2 lives up to the quality of season 1, which would definitely make it worth the wait.
