Undone is a rare gem of a show, being one of the few adult animated TV shows. It’s a psychological comedy-drama available on Amazon Prime and was created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg and Kate Purdy, both of whom worked together on another famous adult animated series Bojack Horseman. The show was first released on September 13, 2019, and the second season is set to release on April 29, 2022.
The show focuses on the manipulation of reality, space, and time, as the main character Alma Winograd-Diaz gains the ability to move through time after suffering a car accident. With these powers, she attempts to save lives and uncover mysteries from her family’s past.
The show received great critical acclaim, with a score of 8.2 out of 10 on Rotten Tomatoes and 86 out of 100 on Metacritic.
The show is special because it uses rotoscoping for the animation. Rotoscoping utilizes real actors, with the animators tracing over scenes that have already been acted out for an added sense of realism. Additionally, Undone uses live motion capture as well. The combination of filming, motion capture, and animation required makes production a lengthy process. The show even takes special care with the backgrounds, with famed artists around the world being invited to paint them using oil paints on canvas.
Undone Season 3 Release Date
There is a good chance that Undone will eventually be renewed for a third season. At present, the second season has been produced and is set to premiere on Amazon Prime on the 29th of April, 2022. The season has already been made available to critics, who praised it greatly; Rotten Tomatoes critics have rated the second season an 8.4 out of 10, a score even higher than the first season. With these factors in mind, the show will likely be renewed for a third season, though production might take some time due to the nature of the show as a rotoscoping animation.
