The cartoon superhero program Invincible completed its first season with a bang, and it has already been renewed for a second and third season. Invincible has been a huge success for Amazon, gaining both critical acclaim and a large audience. These extensions demonstrate Amazon’s faith in the program and its producers to continue crafting a compelling tale in the future.
Invincible tells the narrative of adolescent Mark Grayson (played by Steven Yeun) who, after years of waiting, discovers superpowers inherited from his father Nolan, an extraterrestrial who arrived to Earth becoming the world’s most successful superhero Omni-Man (played by J.K. Simmons).
Amazon’s Invincible is based on the Image Comics series of the same name, which was developed by The Walking Dead author Robert Kirkman and illustrator Cory Walker. The comic is notorious for combining heightened and humorous superhero aspects with mature drama and ultraviolence, and the Invincible program attempted to do the same.
Season 2 of Invincible is currently shrouded in mystery. Invincible, unlike other series such as Amazon’s The Boys, was not renewed for a second season before the first one aired. The statement was made a day before the spectacular climax aired, but nothing else has been published about it; nonetheless, key facts may be deduced by going to the comics and what transpired following Mark’s deadly struggle with Omni-Man.
Invincible 2: Renewal Confirmation
Amazon has officially confirmed Season 2 and Season 3 of Invincible. After extensive fan petitioning for a second season of Invincible while the first was still airing, Amazon demonstrated their trust in Kirkman and his crew with their double renewal scenario. Invincible is certainly a long-term commitment for the streaming service, which is a good thing given that fans clearly want more from this realm. Not to mention that season 1 left a lot of stories unresolved in terms of, well, everything, and much of that might be addressed in season 2.
Invincible 2: Expected Cast
The majority of the core cast of Invincible seasons 1 is expected to be back for a second season. This features Steven Yeun, Sandra Oh (Nora Grayson), Zazie Beetz (Amber Bennett), Gillian Jacobs (Atom Eve), and Zachary Quinto (Robot), whose characters will all play important parts in the comic’s future tale. Guest stars such as Ezra Miller (DA Sinclair), Seth Rogen (Allen the Alien), and Mahershala Ali (Titan), whose role was seen forging new connections at the conclusion of season 1, are all rumored to comeback.
As the series progresses, all of them play a larger role in the plot. J.K. Simmons may not appear as Omni-Man in the next film because he was last seen flying out into hyperspace. Followers of the comic understand where he’s heading, and there’s a high possibility he’ll return at some time during season 2. Fans won’t hear the end of him, in any case.
Invincible 2: Release Date
Although Invincible has been renewed, there are no indications on when season 2 will be released. The second season is expected to appear in the first half of 2022, but given how long animation may take to develop, it could arrive even later. Having said that, Kirkman revealed his crew had begun pre-production on the second season before Amazon granted the formal greenlight, allowing them to hit the ground running as soon as the renewal was announced. Kirkman and his crew worked on season 1 for several years, but the turnaround time for seasons 2 and 3 will most likely be quicker.
Invincible 2: Expected Plot
The comic series is entertaining yet at times perplexing. Invincible season 2 might go in a variety of directions, but we already have an idea of what the second instalment might involve. This is based on the season one finale as well as some indications from the series’ official Twitter account.
First, the season one finale of Invincible. Omni-Man was intended to capture the Earth for the Viltrumite Empire, but after learning he couldn’t murder Mark and, by extension, enslave mankind for his people, he tearfully flees into space to an unknown destination.
This narrative line should be continued in Season 2. Mark will be charged with protecting Earth from invading Viltrumites and assisting the Coalition of Planets in preventing the former from completing their universe-wide expansion. Because of Allen the Alien’s warning, Mark already knows that a fleet is on its way, and with Allen taking on a more significant part in the comics from now on, we can anticipate the duo’s friendship to deepen during season 2.
We should also find out what happened to Omni-Man/Nolan. In the comics, Nolan takes out to attack another planet, hoping that the Viltrumites Empire will compensate him for deserting his duty on Earth. There’s a lot more for the TV show to cover in terms of Mark and Nolan’s relationship, which has been thoroughly explored in the comics as well. We’ll be here forever if we get too far into this father-son relationship, so for now, we’ll just say we’re hoping to see more of J.K. Simmons’ Nolan next season.
After all, the Viltrumites still have a planet to conquer, and Omni-failure Man’s to complete his goal will undoubtedly have consequences. Kirkman has also hinted at the appearance of Angstrom Levy, a comic book villain who can travel to various dimensions and blames Invincible for what happened to him. There are definitely a plethora of storylines remaining for Invincible season 2 to cover, and season 1 built up numerous of them enough for the following season to begin paying them off.
As a result of the foregoing, the program should venture into cosmic terrain in season 2. Stranger planets, stranger characters, and a universe-spanning narrative are all expected to be transferred from page to screen.
The closing episode of Season 1 also hinted to additional potential subplots for Season 2. We should see more of the Sequids plotline, which has yet to be concluded. We know a Martian has penetrated Earth because he swapped places with one of the human astronauts. In addition, the astronaut who was left behind on Mars is now under the influence of the Sequids, which might mean disaster for Earth if this parasitic race sets its sights on the blue planet.
Titan and Battle Beast’s storylines may also be developed out further. When we last saw them, they had taken over Machine Head’s criminal organization and vanished away from Earth. Their stories continue in the comics, and Kirkman has hinted that fan favorite Battle Beast would be given more screen time in Amazon’s adaptation. Despite Omni-rampage Man’s through their home planet in season 2, the Flaxans appear to be returning as well.
