Tuca and Bertie Season 2 to Fly at Adult Swim

-

Adult Swim announced today it has picked up the popular animated series Tuca and Bertie, created by Lisa Hanawalt (BoJack Horseman). The network has greenlit a 10-episode second season for domestic release, with the option for more.

“I’ve been a fan of Adult Swim shows since my teens, so I’m thrilled to bring my beloved fowl to the party and be a new voice for a fresh decade of absurd, irreverent, yet heartwarming adult animation,” said Hanawalt.

The animated series is a comedy about bird besties who live in the same apartment building: Tuca (Tiffany Haddish), a cocky, care-free toucan, Bertie (Ali Wong), an anxious, daydreaming song thrush, and Bertie’s boyfriend, Speckle (Steven Yeun), a jovial, optimistic robin.

The first season of the series debuted on Netflix on May 3, 2019, though the streaming service decided to cancel the show in July of that year.

The first season featured guest appearances from Nicole Byer (Nailed It, The Good Place), Richard E. Grant (Gosford Park), John Early (Search Party), Reggie Watts (Pitch Perfect 2), Tig Notaro (One Mississippi), Amber Ruffin (Key and Peele), Jermaine Fowler (Sorry to Bother You), Tessa Thompson (Thor: Ragnarok), and many more.

Tuca and Bertie is created and executive produced by Hanawalt, with Raphael Bob-Waksberg, Noel Bright, Steven A. Cohen, Haddish, and Wong also serving as executive producers. The series is produced by Michael Eisner’s The Tornante Company and the animation will be done at Shadowmachine.
