Amazon sets a spring premiere date for Robert Kirkman’s adult animated series Invincible. The hour-long series of The walking dead Creator will premiere on Friday, March 26, 2021, exclusively on Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories around the world. The first three episodes of the first season will air on March 26, with new episodes available each following Friday, culminating with the season finale on April 30.
Kirkman made the announcement on Friday as part of a live chat, hosted by Invincible Superfans and comic book lover Hector Navarro commemorating the birthday of Invincible comic book # 1. An extended clip for the series was also unveiled, starring Steven Yuen as Mark Grayson (aka Invincible) and JK Simmons as Nolan Grayson (aka Omni-Man). You can watch it above.
Based on the Skybound comic / Image of the same name of Kirkman, Cory Walker and Ryan Ottley, Invincible revolves around 17-year-old Mark Grayson (Yeun), who is like every other guy his age – except his dad is the most powerful superhero on the planet, Omni-Man (Simmons). But as Mark develops his own powers, he discovers that his father’s legacy may not be as heroic as it seems.
Also on the bill are Sandra Oh, Seth Rogen, Gillian Jacobs, Andrew Rannells, Zazie Beetz, Mark Hamill, Walton Goggins, Jason Mantzoukas, Mae Whitman, Chris Diamantopoulos, Melise, Kevin Michael Richardson, Gray Griffin and Max Burkholder.
Invincible is produced by Skybound and produced by Kirkman, Simon Racioppa, David Alpert, Catherine Winder with supervising director Jeff Allen and Linda Lamontagne as casting director. Invincible, Kirkman’s second-longest comic book series, ended in February 2018 after 15 years of racing.
