After a long wait, the second season of the animated series Invincible will be coming our way in mere weeks. To celebrate the occasion, Prime Video released a trailer during New York Comic Con this weekend that teases what’s in store for Mark (Steven Yeun) after the fallout from the events for season one.
Here’s the synopsis for season two:
Based on the groundbreaking comic book by Robert Kirkman, Cory Walker, and Ryan Ottley, the story revolves around eighteen-year-old Mark Grayson, who’s just like every other guy his age—except his father is (or was) the most powerful superhero on the planet. Still reeling from Nolan’s betrayal in Season One, Mark struggles to rebuild his life as he faces a host of new threats, all while battling his greatest fear—that he might become his father without even knowing it.
Based on the trailer, it looks like Mark isn’t doing such a great job of not being like his murderous, megalomaniac father. The clip also suggests that things are going to get multi-dimensional… literally.
“Season Two overall represents an opening of the universe, an expansion of the universe,” said Kirkman, who also serves as showrunner, in a September 2023 interview with Entertainment Weekly. “There were hints of things that are going on in Season One, and we’re actually going to get to see those things. The Coalition of Planets was mentioned in Season One. The Coalition of Planets is something that we’re actually going to see in Season Two. And there’s larger things on Earth. There are different factions, different villains, different things happening.”
An impressive voice cast brings this ever-expanding superhero universe to life; in addition to Yeun, it includes Sandra Oh, Zazie Beetz, Grey DeLisle, Chris Diamantopoulos, Walton Goggins, Gillian Jacobs, Jason Mantzoukas, Ross Marquand, Khary Payton, Zachary Quinto, Andrew Rannells, Kevin Michael Richardson, Seth Rogen, and J.K. Simmons.
The first half of Invincible’s eight-episode season premieres on November 3, 2023 on Prime Video, with new episodes airing weekly. Following a mid-season hiatus, the second half of season two will premiere in early 2024.
