Adult Swim Greenlights ‘Tuca & Bertie’ Season 3

With a third season pickup, the enormously popular show continues to shine in its successful resurrection from Netflix cancelation; catch Season 2’s final episodes August 8 and 15 - the millennial bird women continue with more of the same crazy antics as they each deal with their ghosts, each in a very different way.

Adult Swim has announced a Season 3 greenlight for its hit 2D animated comedy Tuca & Bertie. It has also secured the international rights for Seasons 2 and 3, now making the show available globally. Filled with relatable scenarios and never-ending chaos, the final two episodes of Tuca & Bertie Season 2 are set to premiere Sunday, August 8 and Sunday, August 15 at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT.

Tuca (Tiffany Haddish) and Bertie (Ali Wong) 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 (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.

Tuca & Bertie is created, and executive produced by Lisa Hanawalt, production designer on BoJack Horseman, with BoJack Horseman creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg, Noel Bright, Steven A. Cohen, Haddish, and Wong also serving as executive producers. The series is produced by Michael Eisner’s The Tornante Company with the animation produced at Shadowmachine.

The show, picked up after being unceremoniously dropped by Netflix in 2019 after a single 10-episode season, has been a big hit in its sophomore season on a new network. According to Adult Swim, with Season 2, Tuca & Bertie increased the number of teen viewers (ages 12-17) and young females (ages 18-24) coming to the network – up +65% and +38%, respectively. The series has consistently ranked #1 during its Sunday 11:30p-12a timeslot versus basic cable among Teens, Adults 18-24/34 and Men 18-24/34/49 (excluding sports).
