Is Tuca & Bertie season 2 happening, and if so, when will it release? Created by Lisa Hanawalt, the Netflix adult animated sitcom follows the friendship of two bird women with distinctly different personalities. The entirety of Tuca & Bertie season 1 premiered in early May 2019, with Tiffany Haddish and Ali Wong portraying the eponymous characters.
In Tuca & Bertie, Haddish voices a toucan who struggles to find her place in the world. Wong co-stars as Robert Songthrush, a songbird who maintains a respectable job at Conde Nest and has an architect boyfriend named Speckle (Steven Yeun). Given the surreal premise, mature humor, and outspoken female leads, Tuca & Bertie is subversive across the board. By the end of Tuca & Bertie season 1, the bird women learn to communicate more effectively while remaining cognizant about other people’s wants and needs.
Tuca & Bertie season 1 has been a hit so far, and its story leaves the door open for a potential second season. And so, here’s everything we know about Tuca & Bertie season 2 so far.
Tuca & Bertie Season 2 Renewal
As of now, Tuca & Bertie season 2 hasn’t been ordered by Netflix. But since the first season premiered on May 3, Netflix most likely won’t make an official decision until mid-to-late June 2019. Along with Tuca & Bertie, Netflix released two other animated series in 2019 (Love, Death & Robots, Trailer Park Boys: The Animated Series), both of which haven’t been renewed.
But don’t be surprised if Netflix models Tuca & Bertie’s production schedule after their most popular animated series, BoJack Horseman. After all, Tuca & Bertie’s creator, Hanawalt, previously worked as a production designer and producer on BoJack Horseman. On September 14, 2018, Netflix released BoJack Horseman season 5 and ordered BoJack Horseman season 6 on October 30, 2018. The six-week lag time is typical of Netflix. Given the positive response to Tuca & Bertie season 1, fans can expect an official renewal before summer.
Tuca & Bertie Season 2 Release Date Info
Netflix hasn’t necessarily maintained a consistent release schedule for BoJack Horseman, as the five seasons have been released in August (season 1), July (seasons 2 and 3), and September (seasons 3 and 4). But the dates do suggest the likelihood that Netflix may release Tuca & Bertie season 2 in May 2020.
Tuca & Bertie Season 2 Story Details
The Tuca & Bertie season 1 finale focuses on molting season, family, and friendship. Bertie’s boyfriend Speckle has a minor mental breakdown, but only because he’s so invested in the relationship. Meanwhile, Tuca’s cluttered house suggests a cluttered mind, though she attempts to find clarity by reaching out to her sister. Bertie implies that Tuca should try to show people why she cares, even if she may not always receive the desired response in return.
For Tuca & Bertie season 2, fans can expect the bird women to further empower their bird women selves. This means that Tuca will look inward while supporting her best friend, while Bertie will surely focus on the development of her new pastry business, SweetBeak. The two bird women made it through molting season with new perspectives, and manage to effectively articulate themselves to skeptical male figures in their lives. For now, fans are hoping that Netflix will do the right thing and order Tuca & Bertie season 2.
