The Rise of ‘Invincible’
In 2021, the superhero TV genre was jolted awake with a fresh new take. Enter ‘Invincible’, Prime Video’s audacious addition that instantly commanded attention. Its stellar first season was not just another superhero story; it redefined what fans could expect from the genre.
Originating from the creative genius Robert Kirkman, known for the iconic “The Walking Dead”, ‘Invincible’ has managed to both wow its dedicated comic fans and charm critics. There’s something tantalizingly different about it. Perhaps it’s the tale of young Mark Grayson, grappling with the enormous shadows cast by his superhero father, or maybe it’s the deftly handled mature themes that draw audiences in.
“Invincible tells the story of 18-year-old Mark Grayson, whose father is a much-loved and well-respected superhero. Being the son of the most powerful person on the planet comes with its challenges, leaving Mark to figure out who he is while facing continuous threats.”

Season 2: A Two-Part Affair
In a twist from their regular programming, Amazon and Kirkman have announced that this season will be released in two segments. The specifics of the second segment’s release remain shrouded in mystery, with early 2024 being teased. The decision, as Kirkman explains, was influenced by the holiday season. He remarked at the San Diego Comic Con 2023:
“With everything going on in that time of year with, you know, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s, and a lot of family time, I think a lot of shows get lost in the shuffle there. So I think it’s good to take a pause and narratively, it’s going to make things hit a little bit harder. People will know what I’m talking about when the season launches.”
So, when can fans indulge in the first half of this two-parter? Here’s the lineup:
Episode 1 – Friday 3rd November (Already released)
Episode 2 – Friday 10th November
Episode 3 – Friday 17th November
Episode 4 – Friday 24th November
