The decision to order another season of Tuca & Bertie has received positive responses from fans, who have been grateful to Adult Swim since it resurrected the series in May 2020 after it was previously canceled by Netflix after its first season.
Amazing news, this show is really entertaining and feels truly genuine to the female perspective. Im so glad AS decided to pick it up, although the sudden lack of nudity this season was kinda distracting.

Created by Lisa Hanawalt, Tuca & Bertie follows the friendship of two 30-year-old bird-women, namely Tuca (Tiffany Haddish) and Bertie (Ali Wong), who live in the same apartment building.
“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,” said Hanawalt in a statement confirming the show’s resurrection on Adult Swim.
Tuca & Bertie premiered to critical acclaim on Netflix in May 2019, but the streaming service pulled the plug on the series just two months later, much to the dismay of fans.
While Cartoon Network’s decision to pick up Tuca & Bertie came as a huge surprise to some, it actually makes sense that the former Netflix series ended up on Adult Swim, as the programming block has long been a haven for offbeat animated series like Robot Chicken, Rick and Morty, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, and The Shivering Truth, just to name a few.
Tuca & Bertie season 3 has no release date yet, but the final two episodes of the show’s season 2 are set to air on August 8th and August 15th, respectively, at 11:30 p.m. ET on Adult Swim.
