"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."

"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."

 

About Invincible

From The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, and based on the Skybound/Image comic of the same name by Kirkman, Cory Walker, and Ryan Ottley, Invincible is an hour-long, adult animated superhero show that revolves around 17-year-old Mark Grayson (Steven Yeun), who's just like every other guy his age - except that his father is the most powerful superhero on the planet, Omni-Man (J.K. Simmons). But as Mark develops powers of his own, he discovers that his father's legacy may not be as heroic as it seems.

Invincible stars Sandra Oh (Killing Eve), Seth Rogen (This is the End), Gillian Jacobs (Community), Andrew Rannells (Black Monday, Girls), Zazie Beetz (Deadpool 2), Mark Hamill (Star Wars: The Last Jedi), Walton Goggins (Justified), Jason Mantzoukas (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Zachary Quinto (Star Trek), Mahershala Ali (Moonlight), Melise (The Flash), Kevin Michael Richardson (The Simpsons), Grey Griffin (Avengers Assemble), Khary Payton (The Walking Dead) and more.

Invincible is produced by Skybound and executive produced by Kirkman, Simon Racioppa, David Alpert (The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead), Catherine Winder (The Angry Birds Movie, Star Wars: The Clone Wars) with Supervising Director Jeff Allen (Avengers Assemble, Ultimate Spider-Man), and Linda Lamontagne serving as casting director. Invincible, Kirkman's second-longest comic book series, concluded in February 2018 after a 15-year run.

awesome news, this show is excellent! I never read the comics but I would see it advertised everywhere when it first came out. I assume it is as good if not better than this show. Awesome that they are making more! Just dont run it into the ground like TWD!

Yeah Buddy!

The only thing better than animated torture porn, is animated torture porn from a guy whose sole claim to fame is a cookie cutter rip-off of crap Romero did nearly 60 years ago.

Bob Kirkman, you are a true inspiration to an entire generation of lazy, unimaginative millennials.

Yes it's obvious and intentional rip off show, but stories invincible tells are the stories dc and marvel cannot tell or wont tell due to purity of status quo and PG rating, invincible isn't afraid to cross the line and what we get is surprisingly entertaining show that  doesn't seem even a bit stale, when DC and Marvel can't produce adult oriented animated tv shows on this level which is real shame for big two, I guess Young justice was close but got too convoluted. and like The Boys that were also an Amazon and Seth Rogen production, it remixes and improves source material, by which we get superior product
