On July 24th, 2019, Netflix announced it would not be renewing Tuca & Bertie.
Because of you, on May 22nd, 2020, Tuca & Bertie was renewed for a second season on Adult Swim—WE DID IT!
May 22, 2020 UPDATE: WE DID IT. Tuca and Bertie is officially being renewed for a second season on Adult Swim. Thank you everyone who wrote in, tweeted, made art, and spread the word. And a giant round of feathery flapping applause for Lisa Hanawalt and the team behind the show– the world needs to hear your stories, and we’re so grateful for them. (See more about the news here!)
Excited by fun, witty animation from woman creators? Giddy with delight over a cartoon that features Ali Wong & Tiffany Haddish and an entire cast of people you love? Upset that Netflix decided not to renew an amazing show after only having it on the platform for a few months, and seemingly not doing a great job marketing it to people who would love it? Are you also shocked that an animated show with a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes wasn’t renewed for a second season?

As a female creator making and passionate about adult animation specifically, it's admittedly a weirdly powerful sting seeing #TucaAndBertie canceled. The show was bright, expressive, sexual, deep and loving! All things that resonate with me and many many others. It's a shame.💔— Vivienne M. (@VivziePop) July 25, 2019
