The creator of The Walking Dead has a new show headed to Amazon and the cast is unbelievable. Invincible is a Robert Kirkman comic that began in 2002 and ran for 144 issues. Instead of a live-action version of the comic book, this will remain an animated series when it arrives on Amazon Prime.
Skybound also posted a list of The Walking Dead cast that are also joining the show!
“We’re excited to announce a reunion of current and former The Walking Dead cast members, who will assemble to voice the iconic Guardians of the Globe on Amazon Studios’ upcoming animated series Invincible, based on Robert Kirkman’s comic book of the same name.

This list is unreal! Invincible is based on Kirkman’s recently concluded comic book of the same name and focuses on Mark Grayson (Yeun), who is just like every other guy his age except for the fact that his father is the most powerful superhero on the planet, Omni-Man (Simmons).
As Mark develops powers of his own, he discovers that his father’s legacy may not be as heroic as it seems. Invincible will premiere in 2020 on Amazon.
The Walking Dead returns in February with 6 new episodes.
