Share This Post

Skybound Entertainment, the creator-led, multi-platform entertainment studio behind mega-hit franchises Invincible, The Walking Dead, Impact Winter, and more, is giving the blood-thirsty fans of Invincible what they’ve been craving: more Invincible. To meet the rising demand for the 100% ‘certified fresh’ adult animated show, Skybound has announced a series of Invincible licensing, content, and product partnerships so the millions of fans of the universe’s favorite superhero can enjoy the IP in as many ways as there are Dupli-Kates (that’s…infinite). Skybound has strategically used its ‘Wheel of Awesome’ and ownership of the IP to spin blood, guts, and gore into video games, merchandise, tabletop games, music, and of course, comics. 

Created by Robert Kirkman and Cory Walker, Image Comics’ Invincible #1 debuted to critical acclaim on January 22, 2003. Soon after, they were joined by artist and contributing creator Ryan Ottley. Throughout its fifteen-year run, Invincible continued for a historic 144-issues, spawning multiple spin-off series’. In 2021, the Invincible animated series arrived on Prime Video and quickly became one of the most popular new streaming series of the year, earning praise worldwide for its fresh storytelling. With new projects continually announced, Invincible remains a cornerstone of the pop culture landscape that continues to prove itself as a world-renowned franchise whose universe knows no bounds. 

Invincible Season 2 Part 2 Debuts March 14 

Season 2 Part 1 of Invincible debuted as a Prime Video Top 10 show to watch and rose to critical acclaim as 100% certified fresh from Rotten Tomatoes, also receiving a Golden Tomato Award for “Best Animated Series.”  

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. 

Co-produced by Skybound Animation and Amazon MGM Studios, the second half of Season 2 will consist of four episodes premiering weekly, starting Thursday, March 14 on Prime Video. Amazon MGM Studios previously announced it has renewed Invincible for a third season.
