Robert Kirkman understands that fans have been waiting eagerly for Invincible Season 2. The first season of the popular Prime Video series, which is based on Kirkman’s beloved comic book series, premiered in March 2021 and received great reviews. Since then, fans have been anxiously anticipating the second season.
Unfortunately, apart from a short teaser revealing a late 2023 release window, no further information has been provided about the upcoming adventures of Mark Grayson. Kirkman, who is currently promoting the release of Renfield, is unable to share many details. However, he can confirm that a well-known villain from the Invincible comics will have a significant role in Season 2.
In an interview before the release of Renfield, Kirkman revealed that Season 2 of Invincible will focus on the character Angstrom Levy. He will be introduced as a new villain in the series. If you’re familiar with the comics, you’ll know who he is and what he can do. Angstrom Levy has the power to travel between different dimensions, adding another multiverse element to the story.
Angstrom Levy is a supervillain who obtained his dimensional abilities after a tragic accident. He holds Invincible responsible for his condition and becomes one of his greatest adversaries. However, the animated series will present a unique take on Angstrom Levy’s storyline compared to the comics. Kirkman mentioned that they approach things differently, adding a distinct flavor to the show’s narrative.
One of the reasons why the Prime Video series Invincible has been successful is because it has taken creative liberties with the original material. This has resulted in more developed characters and a more coherent storyline for Kirkman’s superhero satire centered around a coming-of-age theme.
The animation style of the series, which resembles Saturday morning cartoons from the mid-2000s, adds to its appeal by evoking a nostalgic and comfortable atmosphere. This makes the moments of intense violence even more shocking. Kirkman explains that the attention to detail in the animation is one of the factors contributing to the delay of Invincible Season 2. Animation generally takes a long time to produce, and the complications caused by the pandemic and quarantine further slowed down the process of transitioning from Season 1 to Season 2.
While waiting for Season 2, fans can anticipate updates on the live-action Invincible movie. However, Kirkman is unable to provide much information about it at this time. He expresses his excitement for the future when he can share more specifics, as he finds it frustrating to provide vague answers to questions.
Regardless, Kirkman assures fans that the wait for the highly intense and action-packed second season of Invincible will be worthwhile.
Invincible Season 2 is set to premiere on Prime Video in late 2023.
