With content pipelines under scrutiny amid ongoing labor conflicts between Hollywood studios and streamers, Amazon unveiled plans to split the second season of the animated series Invincible Invincible
into two chapters.
Revealed during a panel on the show at San Diego Comic-Con, Amazon said the series, based on creator Robert Kirkman’s comic book of the same name, will return on Nov. 3 for the first of four episodes in an eight-episode sophomore series. New episodes will be streaming weekly, and the second half of the superhero title will have a date set early in the year 2023.

an original series featuring the character, will premiere in July 21 and be screened at the same day event.
