Khary Payton Confirms Invincible Seasons 2 And 3 Coming

Khary Payton, voice of Markus Grimshaw aka Black Samson in Amazon Prime Video’s Invincible says they’ve finished Seasons 2 with 3 coming right up. The adult animated superhero series for television from Amazon is an adaptation from Image Comics creation of Robert Kirkman, Cory Walker and Ryan Ottley. The series focus on a teenage boy named Mark Grayson growing to become a superhero. Grayson is under the tutelage of his father Omni-Man.

Critically acclaimed for its storytelling and delivery, Invincible got its green light for two seasons from Amazon after its season 1 finale. But that was April 2021. Just recently, updates as to the development of the follow up seasons come and fans are very much excited.

In an interview with The Movie Dweeb, mark 48:1554:16 shows Payton talk about the animated superhero series. He shares his thoughts on when it comes out:

We finished season 2. We’re on season 3. but it’s so hard to say right now. tHere was a glut of animation studios just trying to get so much done. And, literally, it was like a project sitting there with the backpack full of material being like “anytime you are ready” you know?

I am so glad that they green lit 2 and 3 at the same time because that means that when 3 comes out, it will feel like just next season. And not like a lifetime. But it’s gonna take a while.

Khary Payton is an award-winning voice actor who has lent his voice to numerous characters prior to Invincible. Among these are Cyborg in Teen Titans Go!, Kaldur’ahm / Aqualad / Jefferson Pierce in Young Justice. He is also Sovereign Uriel Tal’Dorei in The Legend of Vox Machina, Rafiki / Muhangus in The Lion Guard and many many others.

Khary Payton’s Invincible character, Markus Grimshaw or Black Samson, is a veteran superhero in the series who lost his powers. To compensate for the loss, he fashioned himself an armored super-suit and continued being a hero. Eventually, his powers return in the season and he then puts his armor to rest.
