The main voice cast, including Tiffany Haddish, Ali Wong and Steven Yeun, are all returning to reprise their roles, and Adult Swim says it has the option to order more episodes following the second season. The first season of Tuca & Bertie premiered in May 2019. Despite a wealth of critical acclaim, Netflix decided not to renew the show in July. At the time, the show's creator, BoJack Horseman co-producer Lisa Hanawalt, said that Tuca & Bertie had been slowly building an audience, but suggested that wasn't a factor in Netflix's decision.
"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," Hanawalt said.
It's not often we've seen cable networks bring back a show that was on a streaming platform. Usually, the opposite has happened more frequently, with companies like Amazon giving The Expanse a second chance. But it's not unheard of: in 2019, for instance, Pop TV brought back One Day at a Time. What's different here is that Adult Swim is part of one of the most popular networks in the US.
