Amazon splits Invincible Season 2 into two parts - The Hollywood Reporter

Amazon splits second season of animated series "Invincible" amid Hollywood labor disputes.

Amazon has revealed its plans to divide the second season of the animated series Invincible into two parts, as the content pipelines in Hollywood face scrutiny amidst ongoing labor disputes. The announcement was made during a panel at San Diego Comic-Con, where Amazon announced that the second season, based on Robert Kirkman's comic book, will premiere on November 3. The first part will consist of four episodes, with new episodes being released weekly on the streaming platform. The second half of the season will arrive in early 2024, although the specific date has not been determined yet.

This decision by Amazon comes at a time when the entertainment industry is grappling with a historic double strike between the Writers Guild of America and the performers' union, SAG-AFTRA. The labor disputes involve issues such as the use of artificial intelligence and streaming residuals. With the current halt in production for many scripted series, networks and streamers are faced with the challenge of expanding existing programs, as it remains uncertain when the guilds and the Alliance for Motion Picture and Television Producers will resume negotiations.

Invincible, which last aired in early 2021, is an adult-themed anime series featuring notable voices such as Steven Yeun, Sandra Oh, Zazie Betz, and Seth Rogen. The first season premiered with three episodes and then followed a weekly release schedule for the remaining five episodes. Additionally, during the SDCC, Kirkman announced that Invincible Atom Eve, an episode focused on a specific character's origin, will premiere on July 21 and be screened at the event on the same day.
