Invincible Season 2 is coming this year – so, here’s what we know, from any release date updates to cast, plot, trailer, and other details.

In 2019, Amazon released the first season of The Boys, based on Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s comic book series. Its immediate popularity, bolstered by its shockingly gnarly violence, showed that mainstream audiences had an appetite for R-rated superhero content that wasn’t just gritty and dour.

Two years later, the streaming platform unleashed Invincible, an animated adaptation of Robert Kirkman’s comics. With a shocking series opener, the show quickly found its fans, who feverishly demanded another season after its bloody conclusion.

Thankfully, Amazon listened. Not only are we getting Season 2 of Invincible, but we’re getting a third season too. Given the horrific twists and turns of Kirkman’s original series, there’s a lot of ground to cover across the universe of Invincible. Sometime soon – hopefully – we’ll join Mark Grayson on the next chapter of his journey.

Invincible Season 2 release date: When is it coming out?

Invincible Season 2 will premiere on November 3, 2023, on Prime Video.

Earlier speaking to Collider, Kirkman said: “The production timeline is somewhat daunting. I think that we spend a number of years developing and working on this season. As we hopefully move into Season 2 and beyond, things will tighten.

“There’s definitely a lot less designing and different things that have to happen to move into our second season. And it’s entirely possible that there’s already work that has been done on the second season. So I think we’re in a good place to be moving forward, were this show to end up being successful.”

In a recent interview with Inverse, Kirkman addressed the long wait for Season 2. “Animation takes a long time in general, so that’s a large portion of it. The pandemic and the quarantine and everything hit at the worst possible time, as far as ramping down after Season 1 and ramping up into Season 2. it made it a very complicated process that delayed things a little bit.

“We’re very excited about what’s going on. I wish I could say more specifically about it, but that time will come, and I’m very excited to get to that time because I hate answering questions in a very frustrating and vague way.”

The show’s head writer Simon Racioppa told Tech Radar that they’ve been working on the second season for “longer than I think people are aware, but it takes a while. It’s a big show.”

He said: “We’ve been working on it for a while. We’re working very hard on it. Basically, every day Robert is working on it, I’m working on it. We’re talking about it, and we are well in on the process.”

Steven Yeun, who plays the show’s main character Mark Grayson, aka Invincible, revealed he started voice work on the second season back in April. In a clip released by the Invincible official Twitter account, Yeun could be seen and heard saying: “Can’t wait to make more…” before the video cuts to the title card.

In an interview with Discussing Film, Omni-Man’s actor J.K. Simmons revealed that he was due to head back to the voice booth for Season 2: “I’m allowed to say that we’re going back to work very soon in the recording booth,” he said.

“Now, the lag between us doing our first recordings and the animation being completed is obviously many months and probably more than a year, I would guess. But, yes, Invincible is getting to work in earnest and Season 2 is imminent, I will say. There’s a nice vague term.”

We know work on Season 2 has finished, courtesy of Khary Payton. “We’ve finished Season 2, we’re onto Season 3,” he told The Movie Dweeb, but he didn’t have a release date.

In an interview with CBM, head writer Simon Racioppa said: “We want to make it as badly as everyone wants to see it. We’re deep in. I wish it was already done and I wish it was finished, but it’s just not.”

Yeun also told Collider: [Robert Kirkman is] super excited about it. He thinks Season 2 is gonna be even better than Season 1, which I have no doubt about.

“If you go to his source material, Invincible is an incredible comic, and just thinking about how much story hasn’t been told from that run, it’s gonna be bonkers. I’m really excited about it.”

Just recently, the Invincible HQ Twitter account released a teaser clip in which they announced that more news about Season 2 will be revealed at SDCC, which will happen from July 20 to July 23. So fans should expect some exciting news soon. While the cast won’t take part due to the ongoing actors’ strike, the panel won’t be affected as Kirkman will still be attendance.

Invincible Season 2 plot: What will it be about?

After failing to follow through with murdering Mark and enslaving the human race for the Viltrumite Empire, we last saw Omni-Man flying out into space, heading to an unknown location.

Cecil asked Mark to serve as Earth’s new defender, so Season 2 will likely chronicle his efforts to keep the world safe from the Viltrumites while also helping the Coalition of Planets. There’s also the small matter of the Martian Sequids who’ve managed to infiltrate Earth via an astronaut, and, even scarier, Mark’s efforts to finish high school and maintain a relationship with Amber.

Speaking to The AV Club, Kirkman said the montage at the end of the final episode of Season 1 is a good place to look for clues for the plot of Invincible Season 2.

“With the montage, I really wanted to remind the audience of the many threads we had and wanted to reveal to them that anything and everything that happened in Season 1 matters,” he said.

“Even the small details will come into play in a big way in the future. I wanted to work in way more of those pops but it was becoming ridiculous.

“It also gives the sense that Nolan is off the table for now so Mark doesn’t have a mentor anymore but all the problems are still there. Now we’ll have to see a very different Invincible moving forward who has to figure things out on his own.

“It sets the stage for Season 2 and beyond to be a different story, which is where you want to be with a show like this one. You want every season to have a different kind of flavor and feel and exploration of the main character.”

Kirkman also teased the arrival of Angstrom Levy, one of Mark’s main foes in the comics. Speaking at the Skybound Xpo Invincible panel, he said: “[Levy] really shakes things up.

“If you’re familiar with the comics and you’ve watched the TV show, you’ll get a sense of where we’re going with the second season, especially if you think really hard about how we adapted the story in the first season.”

There’s also a movie in development, which has been influenced “a lot” by the success of the show and may even be an adaptation of the series, rather than the comic – find out more here.

In the meantime, the first season is still available to watch, if you want to get back to feeling…
