Adult Swim renews animated comedy "Tuca & Bertie" after Netflix cancellation



Adult Swim announced today the pick-up of the popular animated series Tuca & Bertie by creator Lisa Hanawalt (BoJack Horseman), nearly a year after it was cancelled by Netflix after one season. The network has greenlit a 10 episode second season for domestic release, with the option for more.

"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.

The animated series is a comedy about bird besties who live in the same apartment building: Tuca (Tiffany Haddish), a cocky, care-free toucan, Bertie (Ali Wong), an anxious, daydreaming song thrush, and Bertie's boyfriend, Speckle (Steven Yeun), a jovial, optimistic robin.
