Amazon’s Invincible Season 2 split into two parts

Amazon is splitting Season 2 of its praised animated superhero show, Invincible, into two parts. While not confirmed, this move is likely so the streamer can stretch the show’s longevity amid the ongoing SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes.

As Hollywood Reporter notes, new content from Hollywood is beginning to dry up as we move into nearly three months of the WGA strike, making a lot of scripted shows come to a grinding halt, with reportedly no shows in production anymore. Odds are this isn’t going to be the last a new show will take this chance, and matters were only made worse when the actors joined the strike earlier this month.

This plan was unveiled during a panel at San Diego Comic-Con, with Season 2 kicking off with a small batch of episodes, followed by weekly releases to the streamer. After the season part ends, it will return in early 2024, but the specific date is still under wraps.

Invincible began airing in 2021 with three episodes before moving to a weekly schedule. Ahead of the show’s season finale, it was renewed for not just a second season, but also a third. An origin episode was also dropped yesterday during the convention titled Invincible Atom Eve.

The SAG-AFTRA strike has already halted many productions, like Deadpool 3 and The Sandman. Meanwhile, it’s also shaken up the promotional game, with actors unable to attend conventions for specific films or projects — except for video games — and unable to participate in any sort of press for said production.
