Invincible was a major hit for Amazon Prime and has received widespread acclaim from critics and audiences, with praise for its animation, action sequences, storyline, writing, performances, and faithfulness to the source material. This is why it did not come as a surprise that Amazon renewed the show for a second and third season. In this article, we are going to tell you everything you need to know about Season 2 of Invincible.
Invincible is getting a second season, as has been confirmed in April 2021, although we still don’t have a release window for it. We do know that the main cast of Season 1 is going to return, as well as that the show is going to continue the adventures of the Grayson family, but we don’t have any additional details. A third season has also been confirmed, albeit also without a release window as of yet.
The rest of this article is going to bring you all the known and unknown information related to the upcoming season two of Invincible. You’re going to find out about its release date, whether there is a trailer, what the story could be about, and much more about this intriguing anime series.
Invincible Season 2 release date
Invincible debuted on March 25, 2021, with its first three episodes on Amazon Prime. The format consisted of eight hour-long episodes, with the remaining five being released on a weekly basis until April 30, 2021. The show has been received extremely well by both critics and fans alike and even before any official information, we were certain that it was going to be renewed.
Namely, Invincible was a great comic book to start with. The plot was intriguing, the characters were great, and the adaptation managed to pull it all off in a brilliant fashion. A day before the final episode of Season 1 premiered on Amazon Prime, the fans were gifted with this:
Steven Yeun, who is playing Mark Grayson in the animated show, has confirmed that Invincible would be coming back for two additional seasons, meaning that the story would be continued in its animated format. Overjoyed as well, this is how the author of the original comic book, Robert Kirkman, replied to the news:
“I’m extremely thankful to Amazon for the support and dedication they’ve put behind Invincible. The comic book is truly a love letter to a genre that Cory (Walker) and I grew up reading and loving, and it’s been a gratifying journey to watch our characters come to life again through the animated series. We’re beyond excited to continue this story for at least two more seasons.”
This was, of course, just a confirmation of what we had been certain of even before the news broke. Invincible was simply too good to be canceled after just one season. Now, since then, there has been no official news about the upcoming seasons, so we don’t have any additional information for you at this moment. We are, of course, going to update this article as soon as some new information comes out.
Taking all of this into account, Invincible could likely return in 2023, if there are no significant delays. It is possible that the show starts in late 2022, but it will almost certainly be over in 2023; we don’t think we’ll have to wait until 2024 for a premiere.
Invincible Season 2 trailer
You now know all the facts and our thoughts related to Invincible season 2, which means that you’ve probably deduced for yourselves that there is no trailer for the second season of Invincible. This is because it’s still too early for a second-season trailer; the upcoming seasons have only just been announced so it’ll be a while before any work on a trailer begins.
As we have said, Invincible was a certain candidate for renewal, and that has finally been confirmed. We knew that the comic book had a lot of arcs to adapt and we knew that the show was popular enough to merit a renewal. Now that it has happened, we only have to wait for the trailer and the season to actually begin.
Taking into account everything we’ve said, a trailer for Invincible season two could possibly appear before the end of 2022 or early 2023, depending on when the upcoming second season will actually air.
Invincible Season 2 plot
At this moment, we don’t really know what parts of the original comic book the series is going to adapt. it is certainly going to continue the story of Invincible and Omni-Man, but since we don’t know how much of the plot is going to be in Season 2, we won’t speculate much until Amazon Prime confirms how much of the comic they plan to adapt. Instead, let us recap what we have seen so far, so you know where the first season left plot-wise.
Omni-Man is Earth’s Mightiest Superhero, his son, Mark Grayson, eagerly awaits his own powers to reveal themselves. While at school, he defends his classmate Amber Bennett from Todd. After Todd knocks Mark down, Amber rescues him and begins to show interest in Mark. Later, Mark’s superpowers finally emerge.
While Nolan is initially hesitant about what to do, he eventually begins to train Mark on how to use his abilities. After some learning difficulties, Nolan takes Mark to meet the superhero tailor, Art Rosenbaum. After Mark chooses to call himself “Invincible”, Art then creates an appropriate superhero costume for Mark.
Later, Nolan secretly (and for no known reason) traps the Globe Guardians and kills them all before falling unconscious from battle injuries. Nolan is in a coma, the Global Defense Agency is treating him in their secret hospital, however, the Agency failed to save the Guardians of the Globe. Meanwhile, extra-dimensional aliens called Flaxans attack the city, and Mark helps Team J prevent the invasion. When the Flaxans begin to age rapidly, then they must fall back urgently.
Robot, the leader of the team, deduces that this is due to a difference in time dilation between the Flaxans’ homeworld and Earth. Mark realizes that Atom Eve, one of the members of Team J, is one of his classmate: Samantha Eve Wilkins, they then reveal their identities and become friends. Shortly after, the Flaxans return with anti-aging technology, but Mark and Team J manage to destroy it, forcing the aliens into another retreat.
Soon after, the Flaxans return once more and come close to defeat, until a healed Nolan forces them back to their homeworld. He follows them and then devastates their planet in retaliation, before returning to Earth where news of the Guardians’ death has just been announced. While Nolan is considered convalescent, Cecil asks Mark to go and confront Allen the Alien, who wants to test Earth’s defenses for the Coalition of Planets.
Taking advantage of a timeout given to him by Allen, Mark corrects the alien’s error: he has confused “Terre” (“Earth”) with “Tarr” (“Urath”), so he has nothing to do here. Realizing his fault, Allen leaves. Meanwhile, demon detective Damien Darkblood investigates the Guardians’ deaths, theorizing that the killer was among the heroes.
After a televised funeral, the Graysons attend the private burial of the Guardians of the Globe. Darkblood interrogates Nolan privately and suspects him of killing the Guardians. Cecil tasks Robot with forming a new team of Guardians made up of the former members of Team J, joined by Monster Girl, Black Samson, and Shrinking Rae.
However, Eve turns down his integration as she does not wish to be on the same team as Rex Splode after she catches him cheating on her with Dupli-Kate upon returning from the funeral. After Mark gets Amber’s number, they meet “to revise.” The date is cut short while Mark helps Eve prevent Doc Seismic’s attack on Mount Rushmore. When Rex tries to apologize to Eve, she refuses and leaves to join Mark, but finds him with Amber. With Robot’s help, the Mauler twins escape from prison.
Darkblood questions Debbie and finds that Nolan is hiding things from her. She goes to bed suspicious of her husband who senses Darkblood’s lingering presence. Angry with the Global Defense Agency for yet to arrest the Guardians’ killer, Red Rush’s widow, Olga, hires Debbie to sell her house and return to Moscow.
When Cecil asks Nolan to protect the first mission to Mars, he refuses because he must protect the Earth. Mark volunteers. Despite a successful landing, Mark’s inattention allows the Martians to abduct the astronauts. The Martian Emperor orders their execution to prevent parasites from reaching Earth and destroying the universe.
Mark evacuates the astronauts and their shuttle and does not realize that a Martian has replaced one of them. Meanwhile, Nolan invites Debbie on a vacation to Rome to rekindle their relationship and regain her trust tarnished by half-truths. Cecil realizes that Nolan is the Guardians’ killer, but he can’t act until he finds the motive for the killings.
Knowing that Darkblood won’t give up on this case, Cecil banishes him to Hell, unaware that the detective has hidden his notepad in Debbie’s closet to maintain his presence on Earth. As the surviving Mauler brother begins to clone himself, Robot monitors his progress and methods before committing himself. After Debbie finds Darkblood’s notebook, she finds evidence that confirms Nolan’s involvement in the Guardians’ assassination.
Black Samson criticizes his teammates for their individualism during an intervention that caused injuries to civilians. Robot secretly approaches the Maulers and offers to employ them. Meanwhile, Mark promises to help Amber out at a soup kitchen to make amends for her superhero-related delays. However, he must also help Titan defeat his boss, Machine Head, who hires several villains for his safety.
As Mark struggles, the Guardians arrive as reinforcements but are overwhelmed and brutalized by Thokk, the Battle Beast. Seeing the other villains quickly defeated, Thokk feels this fight is not on his level and flees through a portal, allowing the Global Defense Agency to stop Machine Head. After Mark and the Guardians are evacuated, Titan takes over Machine Head’s business.
Eve volunteers and participates in Amber’s soup kitchen. Cecil calls him and informs him of Mark’s hospitalization. Meanwhile, Global Defense Agency scientists test a sample of Mark’s blood and find that his cells are invulnerable to the many lethal tests they perform.
Robot gathers different mystical ingredients to save Amanda, aka Monster Girl, who was severely injured by Thokk. After his recovery, Mark reconciles with Amber. The latter accompany William for a weekend visit to the State University which is only a pretext to find his former boyfriend Rick Sheridan.
One of Sinclair’s cyborgs, a self-assured, brilliant but amoral scientist, escapes and fights Invincible before committing suicide in an act of depressive madness; William deduces that Mark is Invincible. Amber is furious with Mark because she thinks he abandoned them when the cyborg attacked; she decides to avoid him by going to a party. Rick is abducted and turned into a cyborg by Sinclair who also abducts William who has come looking for him. Hearing William’s cries for help, Rick overcomes his impairment and helps Invincible win against the other cyborgs.
Cecil takes an interest in Sinclair’s technology, which nearly beat Invincible’s viltrumite physiology. When Debbie entrusts Nolan’s bloody costume to Art Rosenbaum, he confirms that Nolan killed the Guardians. After the two agree to keep their discovery quiet for fear of Nolan, Debbie drowns her grief in alcohol.
Halfway through cloning a body that Robot asked of them, the Mauler twins decide to dig up the Immortal to resurrect him and use him as a bodyguard in case of Robot’s betrayal. Inspired by Amber, Eve refuses to go to college and uses her powers for good. While Debbie has gone to the Global Defense Agency, Nolan returns home to find he is being watched. He then kills several agents of the A.D.G being on the spot as well as the associate of Cecil, Donald Ferguson.
Meanwhile, Rudy/Robot travels to the Mauler’s lair to transfer a copy of his mind into his new body, which then reluctantly euthanizes the original. Betraying the Maulers, the new Rudy tries to send them back to prison, but gives up to leave at a summons from the Guardians. He then explains himself to the team, who are disconcerted by his revelations.
Then they together learn the truth about Omni-Man and the fate of their predecessors. For his part, Cecil buys time by talking to Nolan before retreating to deploy Sinclair’s Reanimen cyborgs and a modified Kaiju to kill him. Meanwhile, Amber decides to break up with Mark despite him revealing his superhero identity to her.
She tells him she’s known for weeks and blames him for not trusting her. Mark then seeks Eve’s advice, but she criticizes his selfish behavior. When the two friends cross paths with Nolan’s fight against the Kaiju, Cecil orders Eve to abandon Mark and join the Guardians. In their lab, the Maulers resurrect the Immortal thinking they are controlling him to avenge them for Rudy’s betrayal, but he flies off to fight Omni-Man and avenge his team’s slaughter.
As Mark narrowly subdues the Kaiju, news helicopters film Omni-Man killing the Immortal in a live broadcast. Nolan then finally asks to speak with a baffled Mark. After revealing to Mark that he is an infiltrator from the Viltrumite Empire sent to conquer Earth, Nolan fails to convince his son to join him. A fight then begins and Omni-Man largely dominates, devastating Chicago and massacring thousands of people. However, while reminiscing about Mark’s childhood, Nolan becomes aware of his own humanity and love for him.
He then gives up and flies away in tears to leave Earth. As the world learns of Omni-Man’s betrayal, the Guardians and Eve band together to help rescue Chicago. To keep up appearances, Cecil helps Debbie and Mark by faking Nolan’s civil death. A devastated Debbie shares a drink with Rosenbaum, also hurt by Nolan’s betrayal, as Mark and Amber rekindle their relationship after he recovers.
As she and William learn that Eve is also a superhero, Cecil sends Mark to intercept Allen who is approaching the planet. The hero takes the opportunity to update him on recent events. Allen warns Mark that a Viltrumite fleet will be coming for Earth, given Nolan’s unusual post abandonment.
He believes, however, that Mark can help the Coalition stop the expansion of the Viltrumites. Afterwards, as Mark plans to finish high school, the Maulers are arrested while the Immortal recuperates under the ADG’s protection. Meanwhile, dangerous forces conspire to return, as Cecil commands Dr. Sinclair to mass produce Reanimen troops.

Where to watch Invincible Season 2?
At this moment, as expected, there is no means of watching Invincible season two, as there is no season two of Invincible to watch. The first season was streamed globally by Amazon Prime, and since the streaming service is also the production company behind the whole concept, we know that the second and third seasons of Invincible are going to be available on Amazon Prime as well.
Will there be an Invincible Season 3?
Unlike in the majority of our similar articles, we actually do not have to speculate here, as we know that Invincible is getting a third season. The information was confirmed in April 2021, along with the fact that the show would be getting a second season as well. Invincible is, thus, getting at least one additional season, although, at this point, we have absolutely no information on the third season’s release date.
