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, carefree toucan, and Bertie, an anxious, daydreaming songbird. In the second season, Bertie is busy excavating her inner ghouls with the help of a therapist, while Tuca prefers to stuff hers behind the toilet. She’ll deal with them later, right now she’s just too busy trying not to be single anymore! Meanwhile, Speckle (Steven Yeun) is building a new house but soon finds he’s driven to the brink of insanity…good thing he’s just a cartoon.”
The series features a voice cast led by Tiffany Haddish as Tuca, Ali Wong as Bertie, and Steven Yeun as Speckle. They are joined by Nicole Byer, Richard E. Grant, John Early, Reggie Watts, Shamir Bailey, Jennifer Lewis, and Kate Berlant.
