The first season of NBC’s Invincible was a hit among comic book fans, but it wasn’t without controversy. When the season finale aired, fans were shocked to see how the producers chose to end the first season. Now, with all signs pointing to an Invincible season 2 on the horizon, we’ve compiled everything we know about what to expect from this upcoming season so far.
The release date
Invincible season 2 is set to premiere on Amazon Prime Video on March 26, 2021. The series was originally set to return in 2020, but the production was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Season 2 will consist of 8 episodes, and will pick up where the first season left off. Amazon has released a teaser trailer for the new season, which you can check out below. Check back with SYFY WIRE for more updates as they’re revealed!
Exactly what happens next remains to be seen, however. The show’s creators have said that there are several seasons’ worth of stories in store, and season two will continue to follow Mark’s adventures at Hardship Inc., focusing on his abilities — and those of his family members — rather than worldbuilding or fighting crime. Whatever happens next should further explore Mark’s relationships with his adopted family members; superhero powers (and other heroes) existing side by side; and provide deeper insight into how our world handles these kind of superpowered situations under cover of public safety rather than public knowledge. This is an opportunity for some real sociological exploration.
The first trailer for Invincible season 2 was released on February 11th and it looks like the new season is going to be even more action-packed than the first. The trailer opens with a shot of Mark (Steven Yeun) and Eve (Sandra Oh) talking, followed by a montage of different scenes from the upcoming season. We see Mark suited up as Invincible, flying through the air and punching bad guys; we see him in a school hallway, looking nervous; and we see him at home with his family. The trailer ends with a voiceover from Mark’s father, Omni-Man (J.K. Simmons), telling his son that he’s not ready to fight the biggest battles yet. Mark, you’re not invincible, he says. You can’t save everyone.
Steven Yeun, J.K. Simmons, Sandra Oh, Mark Hamill, Gillian Jacobs, Zachary Quinto, and Mahershala Ali are all set to return for the second season of Amazon Prime’s animated superhero series Invincible. Additionally, it was recently announced that Rosario Dawson will be joining the cast as well.
The story of the second season (five sentences): The second season will pick up where the first left off, with Mark Grayson (Steven Yeun) trying to come to terms with his father’s (J.K. Simmons) secret identity as Omni-Man, the most powerful superhero in the world. It is said that Omni-man is coming back from a long journey and going to take over Earth.
Mark starts doing more heroic things like rescuing innocent people from danger, but he does not have any superpower other than invincibility. He wants to save the world because he has been through a lot of difficult situations during his lifetime.
Mark tries hard to be better than his dad in order to get people’s attention away from him because he is afraid they might think he is just following what his dad did and want him to become an American hero again, which would mean being an Americop again.
The second season of Amazon Prime Video’s superhero series Invincible is set to premiere on March 26, and fans are eagerly awaiting its return. Here’s everything we know about the upcoming season.
The first season of Invincible ended with a bang, as Mark Grayson (Steven Yeun) finally learned the truth about his father Nolan (J.K. Simmons) and his secret life as Omni-Man, the most powerful superhero in the world. The revelation that Omni-Man is actually a villain sent shockwaves through the superhero community, and left Mark feeling betrayed and alone.
In season two, Mark will have to deal with the fallout of his father’s actions, as well as try to find his place in the world without him.
Air date and location
Amazon Prime Video has not announced an air date for Season 2 of Invincible yet. However, filming wrapped in February 2021, which means that the post-production process is likely underway. We can expect the new season to drop sometime in late 2021.
As for location, the majority of Season 1 was filmed in Atlanta, Georgia. However, the show also took advantage of locations in New York and Los Angeles. It’s likely that Season 2 will continue to film in Atlanta, but we may see some new locations as well. Filming usually starts in March or April and goes through November. The locations they used were various hotels and office buildings in Atlanta (some more modern than others). They often used this building with a penthouse restaurant at the top that overlooked Downtown Atlanta; it was perfect for scenes when Brian had to make his way through a congested traffic jam on his way home from work.
