'Tuca & Bertie': Adult Swim Revives Acclaimed Animated Comedy After Netflix Cancellation

Tuca & Bertie fans, you’re going to love this! The acclaimed animated comedy series starring Tiffany Haddish and Ali Wong has been revived at Adult Swim for season 2, with the potential for more seasons to come. This news comes months after Netflix shockingly canceled the series, which is a darling among critics.

The first season of the show Tuca & Bertie has a stunning, rare 100 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The series, which also stars Steven Yeun, is an animated comedy about the friendship between two 30-year-old bird-women who live in the same apartment building: Tuca (Haddish), a cocky, care-free toucan, and Bertie (Wong), an anxious, daydreaming songbird. Haddish, Wong and Yeun are all set to return for season 2. Guest stars for the first season included Nicole Byer, Richard E. Grant, John Early, Reggie Watts, Tig Notaro, Amber Ruffin, Jermaine Fowler and Tessa Thompson.

“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 creator Lisa Hanawalt in a statement.

No word on when the second series would air or if it is in production yet.
