Tiffany Haddish animated series Tuca & Bertie cancelled at Netflix
Following the series debut of Tuca & Bertie in May, TVLine reports that Netflix has decided not to give the Tiffany Haddish and Ali Wong adult animated comedy series a second season renewal.
“Lisa Hanawalt created a relatable yet whimsical world in Tuca & Bertie,” Netflix said in a statement. “We’re grateful to Lisa, and her fellow executive producers Raphael Bob-Waksberg, Noel Bright, Steven A. Cohen, and EPs/stars Tiffany Haddish and Ali Wong, along with all of the writers and animators for sharing the funny and dynamic female bird duo of Tuca and Bertie with the world. While Tuca & Bertie won’t have a second season, we’re proud to feature this story on Netflix for years to come.”
Tuca & Bertie is a comedy about the friendship between two 30-year-old bird women who live in the same apartment building: Tuca, a cocky, care-free toucan, and Bertie, an anxious, daydreaming songbird.
The adult animated series featured the voices of Tessa Thompson (Thor: Ragnarok), Amber Ruffin (Late Night with Seth Myers), Nicole Byer (Star vs. the Forces of Evil), Richard E. Grant (Can You Ever Forgive Me?), John Early (Search Party), Reggie Watts (The Late Late Show with James Corden), Tig Notaro (Transparent) and Jermaine Fowler (Superior Donuts).
Lisa Hanawalt (BoJack Horseman) created the series, which consists of 10 episodes for its first season.
