The creator of the “Invincible” comics and series, Robert Kirkman, believes that seven to eight seasons of the animated superhero show would be sufficient to cover the scope of its plot.
“I’m trying not to pin it down to a number, because it is somewhat of a moving target. I think in the seven-to-eight-season range seems like it would be enough,” Kirkman said in a recent interview with Polygon. “But there could be some things we move through a little faster, some things we expand. If we’re fortunate enough to go for a good long time, I think that would be enough to cover the entire comic.”

Based on the same-named comic book written Robert Kirkman, Cory Walker, and Ryan Ottley, “Invincible” is an animated series. The 17-year-old Mark Grayson (Steven Yeun), the main character of the Prime Video animated series, is just like any other guy his age, but for the fact that Omni-Man (J.K. Simmons), the most powerful superhero in the planet, is his father. Mark begins to understand the truth about his father’s inheritance as he gains his own powers.
Along with the comic book plots in the series, Kirkman aims to explore some unique storylines, noting, “There are some things along the way that didn’t get into the comic that I’d like to do. I think it’d be cool to have some episodes here and there that are completely original. So that’s part of the plan moving forward.”
Kirkman and Steven Yeun revealed that “Invincible” has been renewed for a second and third season before the premiere of the Season 1 finale.
“I’m extremely thankful to Amazon for the support and dedication they’ve put behind Invincible,” Kirkman said. “The comic book is truly a love letter to a genre that Cory [Walker] and I grew up reading and loving, and it’s been a gratifying journey to watch our characters come to life again through the animated series. We’re beyond excited to continue this story for at least two more seasons.”
