Tuca & Bertie is getting a second life!
The animated series, created by former BoJack Horseman producer and artist Lisa Hanawalt, will air a new season at Adult Swim after originally being canceled by Netflix , the network confirmed on Friday (May 22).
The series follows “Tuca (Haddish), a cocky, care-free toucan, Bertie (Wong), an anxious, daydreaming song thrush, and Bertie’sboyfriend, Speckle (Steven Yeun), a jovial, optimistic robin.”
“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,” creator Lisa said of the news.
Tuca & Bertie first premiered on Netflix in May of 2019, and was canceled after one season despite positive reviews.
