Undone Season 2: Here’s everything you need to know about the next instalment of the adult animated comedy-drama on Amazon Prime Video.
Undone is an adult animated comedy-drama show centred around Alma, a young woman who after getting into a near-fatal car accident, discovers that she has a new relationship with time and space and uses this ability to find out the truth about the death of her father. It uses the technique of rotoscoping in its storytelling, which gives it a distinctive texture and makes it look appealing. The drama, apart from focusing on a singularly captivating story, also keeps the viewers engaged by seeding the idea of an unreliable narrator in their mind. It coherently combines elements of thrill and sci-fi to the proceedings which result in a riveting watch.
The first season consists of 8 episodes was premiered on Amazon Prime Video on 13 Sep 2019. In November 2019, Amazon renewed the series for a second season. This announcement has had the fans excited for the upcoming season. Today, we will share each and every information about the second season of Undone. Let’s start with the story and plot:
What will be the plot of Undone season 2?
The first season concludes with Alma travelling to Mexico and waiting for her father to emerge from ancient ruins. Meanwhile, Becca turns up and convinces Alma to leave the place because it seems like the most logical decision. The final images of the show suggest that Alma’s father may have indeed returned, as the visuals tease a major revelation. Thus allowing it to have various interpretations. Given the collective themes of the first season, memory, trauma, mental health – it’s possible that Alma may be caught up in her own thoughts. It is highly anticipated that the upcoming season will most likely chronicle further into Alma’s mind-bending adventures with time travel and continue with her journey of evolving as a woman while dealing with trauma.

Production on halt due to COVID-19
Creators and executive producers Purdy and Raphael Bob-Waksberg in an interview with Variety said “It’s been wonderful to share ‘Undone’ and have people watching become part of the experience as they interpret the show through their own perceptions of reality. We are thrilled Amazon Studios is giving us the opportunity to keep exploring this world and these characters, and we look forward to seeing where the story takes us next – but since time is a construct, in a way, we already made the second season and you have always been watching it all along!”
Noel Bright, Steven A. Cohen, and Tommy Pallotta will continue as the executive producers alongside the creators. Hisko Hulsing will continue to serve as the director and production supervisor. The dutch studio, Submarine will continue to oversee animation production, and Austin-based Minnow Mountain will proceed with the rotoscoping.
