Ahead of the first season finale on Friday, April 30th, Amazon Studios just announced that its Prime Video cartoon Invincible, based on the Skybound/Image Comics series created by Robert Kirkman, Cory Walker, and Ryan Ottley, has been renewed for two more seasons.
In a press release, Vernon Sanders, co-head of television at Amazon Studios, said, “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.”
Invincible follows Mark Grayson, a typical teen whose father happens to be Omni-Man, the world’s most powerful hero. That’s a long shadow to have hanging over Mark, especially when he begins to manifest his own powers and learn more about his father’s past, a past that will impact Mark’s future and the future of the entire planet.
Steven Yeun of the television adaptation of The Walking Dead—another Kirkman creation—voices Mark, with J.K. Simmons (Spider-Man, Juno, Justice League, Oz, a whole mess of other awesome performances) portraying Omni-Man. Other voice talent includes Gillian Jacobs (Community), Zazie Beetz (Deadpool 2), Mark Hamill (Batman: The Animated Series), Walton Goggins (Vice Principals), and a whole array of other talented actors.
The season 1 finale of Invincible drops Friday, April 30th, on Amazon Prime Video.
