Invincible season 2 “finished” reveals actor Khary Payton, offers update on season 3

Invincible season 2 “finished” reveals actor Khary Payton, offers update on season 3

It seems like creator Robert Kirkman and the folks at Wind Sun Sky are hard at work producing Invincible season 2. A new update from The Walking Dead’s Khary Payton revealed voice-over for the upcoming second season is complete and work has begun for season 3. However, season 2’s premiere date is still TBA but the actor explained the reason behind its delay.

It’s been more than a year since Invincible season 1 premiered on Prime Video and clearly, fans are restless from the long wait. Payton who voices Black Samson recently spoke with Movie Dweeb where he confirmed the ongoing “recording” work and spoke about working again with Kirkman.

“We’re recording Invincible right now, and he’s just so very down to earth, and not… there’s just nothing put upon about the guy. And every once in a while I just look at him, like, this is, he’s a genius. You know. And to talk to the guy, he just doesn’t come off that way at all. (via: Movieweb)”

Payton also touched upon Invincible season 3 but was quick to clarify that the animation department has a long way to go with season 2, emphasizing the backlog of work to complete before it’s ready for consumption.

Update on Voiceover recording for Invincible season 2

“We finished season 2. We’re on to season 3. But it’s so hard to say right now. There was a glut of animation studios just trying to get so much done and literally it was like, projects sitting there with a backpack full of material. They’re like, ‘Anytime you’re ready.’ There was literally a line for the really great studios to just get this work out. So, I honestly can’t tell you. I’m dying. I am so glad they greenlit 2 and 3 at the same time, because that means when 3 comes out, it will feel like just next season, and not like, a lifetime. But, yeah, it’s gonna take a while, I wish I could say otherwise.”

Invincible Season 1 concluded with a teasing montage of Earth’s impending face-off against the improved inter-dimensional Flaxans, Sequid-influenced Martians, the hunky Battle Beast and more. But the bigger problem, as Allen the Alien (Seth Rogan) notes in the season finale are Viltrumites and with Nolan (J.K. Simmons) off, Mark (Steven Yeun) is humanity’s last stand. Though it’s likely the Father-Son dynamic won’t be absent for long since the Graysons are the only hope against a menacing force like Viltrumites.

The first offering was such a massive hit among fans that many criticized Emmy 2022 for the series’ nomination snub. Nevertheless, its growing fanbase has arguably made it a notable R-rated superhero fiction, similar to Prime Video’s The Boys. Even so, it’s been a rough year for some animation creatives with Warner Bros. Discovery’s unprecedented shelving of several projects from the likes of Batman: Caped Crusader to Looney Tunes and much more.

Invincible season 2 does not have a release date attached yet.
