Invincible Season 2 Triples Viewership

The word is out and Invincible is a smash hit as Season 2 has tripled the viewership of Season 1.

The official Twitter account announced the news with a poster of Omni-Man.

“The size of Season 2 viewership and this W,” tweeted the account.

Fans eating it up

There are a couple of things particularly interesting about the rise in viewership.

For one, it’s known that Amazon Prime Video didn’t think much of Invincible. It’s only been thanks to word of mouth that the series has been a big success, so thank the fans.

Back in October, execs revealed they doubted the series and that Invincible Season 1 had a budget of less than four times that of the popular series, The Boys, and barely any marketing. However, Invincible is right up there with The Boys in ratings as Amazon’s top-five most-watched shows.

“I love Amazon, they’re great, but there was barely any marketing for this show,” said executive producer Marge Dean via Deadline. “This thing just popped up but I had no idea what it was or what was going to happen.”

What else is interesting is that Invincible is similar to The Boys, as both shows are a mature take on superheroes, particularly DC’s Superman and Justice League, and that fans are eating it up.

Marvel has been suffering as of late with its too goofy and kiddish content. It’s actually been said that Kevin Feige changed up Marvel’s version of Superman in Thunderbolts due to The Boys‘ Homelander. The Sentry is a blond evil-type Superman, so according to rumors, Feige changed The Sentry and is using Steven Yeun, who voices Invincible, as the character in the MCU.

So right there we see how both The Boys and Invincible have already made a big impact on things.

Invincible airs new episodes on Thursdays; Episode 2 of Season 2 just aired this week and introduced its version of Batman.

Season 3 is also in the works.

Season 2 synopsis: Still reeling from Nolan’s betrayal in Season 1, Mark struggles to rebuild his life as he faces a host of new threats, all while battling his greatest fear – that he might become his father without even knowing it.
