Invincible season 2 split explained by Robert Kirkman

Robert Kirkman commented on the decision to separate Invincible Season 2 in two parts, narrative colliders that the reality of production played a role in the decision: “It’s a small part of the production process just because ramping up took a lot longer than we thought.”

The first four episodes of Invincible’s second season will premiere on November 3 on Prime Video, with the remaining four expected to release in early 2024. Kirkman explained that there is also a narrative release for the division by comparing “Invincible” to “The Walking Dead” (which Kirkman also created).

“But that’s also something we’ve done with every season of The Walking Dead, and I think narratively it’s kind of cool to pause to digest what you’ve just experienced,” Kirkman said. “And when you’re watching Episode 4 of Season 2, you might need a break. It’s a big episode. It’s definitely a mid-season finale of sorts.”

Kirkman further noted that the holidays were taken into account when deciding how to split Invincible: “And with everything happening during this time of year, with Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years and lots of family time, I think a lot of shows get lost in the hustle and bustle. So I think it’s good to take a break and narratively it will make things a little tougher. People will know what I’m talking about when the season starts.”

What’s coming in Invincible Season 2?

“Invincible is an hour-long animated adult superhero show centered on seventeen-year-old Mark Grayson (Steven Yeun), who is just like any other man his age — except his father is the most powerful superhero on the planet, Omni-Man (JK Simmons),” reads the logline. “But as Mark develops his own powers, he discovers that his father’s legacy may not be as heroic as it seems.”

Invincible Season 2, which begins right after the end of the first part, welcomes new voice actors Tatiana Maslany, Daveed Diggs, Cliff Curtis, Calista Flockhart, Scoot McNairy, Lea Thompson, Jay Pharoah, Ella Purnell, Tim Robinson, Rhea Seehorn, Paul F. Tompkins, Shantel VanSanten, Peter Cullen and Ben Schwartz. Meanwhile, Sterling K. Brown voices villain Angstrom Levy.
