Tuca and Bertie, the critically acclaimed animated series from creators Lisa Hanawalt was canceled by Netflix after only one season stirring on outcry among fans leveling very fair criticism at the streaming giant, which seems content to give us multiple seasons of shows like hemlock grove. But nearly year after this ultimately cancellation tuna and Bertie fans finally have some reasons to celebrate – adult swim has ressuvurated the show for the second season.
I’ve been a fan of adult swim shows since my teens, Hanawalt said. So I’m thrilled to be my beloved fowl to the party and be a new voice for a fresh decade of absurd, irreverent yet heartwarming adult animation. Hanawalt developed the show based on her web coming to Utica and Bertie and also worked as producer and production designer on Netflix Bojack horseman.
The show follows tuna and Bertie’s two humanoid bird best friends who live in the same apartment complex. Tuca is free-spirited as opposed to the anxious and more practical Bertie.
The walking deads Steven yeun also stars as Bertie boyfriends speckle. Critics and fans alike praised the show for its empathetic handling of mental health issues, addictions, and trauma as well as having an all-female crew and mostly female cast which is unfortunately extremely rare. Luckily the show has found a new home on an adult swim where it will hopefully get four more seasons and a movie.
