Nearly a year after acquiring the series from Netflix, Adult Swim has finally announced the premiere date of the upcoming second season of Lisa Hanawalt’s adult-animated series Tuca & Bertie with its first sneak peek teaser of the titular duo. The video features Ali Wong’s Bertie as she goes into therapy for her anxieties and insecurities, while Tiffany Haddish’s Tuca runs her own Sex Bus. The series is scheduled to make its return with all-new episodes starting on Sunday, June 13. Check out the video in the player below!
In Season 2, Tuca and Bertie are best friends, and they’re both full of ghosts! 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 is building a new house but soon finds he’s driven to the brink of insanity…good thing he’s just a cartoon.
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 features the voices of Tiffany Haddish as Tuca, Ali Wong as Bertie, and Steven Yeun as Speckle.
Season 1 featured the voices of Tessa Thompson, Amber Ruffin, Nicole Byer, Richard E. Grant, John Early, Reggie Watts, Tig Notaro, and Jermaine Fowler.
Tuca & Bertie is created and executive produced by Lisa Hanawalt (BoJack Horseman). Executive producers are Haddish, Wong, Raphael Bob-Waksberg (BoJack Horseman), Noel Bright (BoJack Horseman, Friends), and Steven A. Cohen (BoJack Horseman, Jack & Bobby). The series’ animation is being done at Shadowmachine.
