Will The Walking Dead's Andrew Lincoln Ever Appear On Robert Kirkman's Invincible? The Creator Has Thoughts

Robert Kirkman's Invincible recently wrapped up an extremely deadly Season 1 over on Amazon Prime, and at least two more seasons are thankfully on the way. Beyond all the show's dark and violent twists that likely came as little surprise to those familiar with Kirkman's work, Invincible's stellar voice cast featured a slew of different actors from the comic superstar's other acclaimed series, The Walking Dead. So with Seasons 2 and 3 looms on the horizon, I'm not alone in wondering if it's possible Kirkman will welcome TWD vet Andrew Lincoln in future episodes?

That's a question only Kirkman can answer, of course, and the Invincible creator did thankfully share his thoughts with ComicBook.com on whether or not we can one day expect to hear Andrew Lincoln and other The Walking Dead alums who weren't featured in Invincible's first season. Robert Kirkman not only gave an answer on Lincoln, but also dropped a few other big names in his response.

I hesitate to name names, just because I would eventually like to bring everyone. I can't think of an actor on The Walking Dead I wouldn't want to work with again. It's an amazing group of actors. Andrew Lincoln, Danai Gurira, Norman Reedus, Melissa McBride, Jeffrey Dean Morgan...there's not really anyone I wouldn't want to bring in.

Perhaps it's not surprising that Robert Kirkman would like to bring all the Walking Dead heavy hitters that he can get into Invincible, especially after already featuring so many in Season 1. Steven Yeun is the voice of lead Mark Grayson, Khary Payton voices Black Samson, and further roles were voiced by the likes of Ross Marquand, Lauren Cohan, Sonequa Martin-Green, Chad Coleman, Michael Cudlitz, and Lennie James. That's already a ton of talent from the AMC series, but as Kirkman noted, there are still some key players that could be called upon for comic characters we haven't met yet.

As cool as such a large-scale reunion of The Walking Dead on Invincible would be, it's still worth noting that this series has a stellar voice cast even without everyone from the zombie apocalypse. The full cast list is a who's who of Hollywood actors that includes J.K. Simmons, Sandra Oh, Walton Goggins, and Mahershala Ali, and while there are really so many more names I could drop beyond that (like Mark Hamill), let's just leave it at the fact that this may be the most star-studded voice cast for any animated series that doesn't involve alcoholic horses.

The good news is that with another 2 seasons on the way, one would think there will be plenty of opportunities to introduce new characters that could potentially be voiced by Andrew Lincoln and others. Provided any of those Walking Dead vets have room in their busy schedules to contribute their voices - such as, I dunno, that Walking Dead movie that is seemingly taking forever to come together - I don't think it'll be too much of a problem for Amazon to sign off on it all. Honestly, I think Lincoln would be a good voice for a Viltrumite, though after Season 1, I'm not sure I want to see more of those things anytime soon.

Binge all of Season 1 of Invincible over on Amazon Prime Video. For those that haven't had a chance to check it out yet, I highly recommend it to anyone who grew up with animated shows like Justice League or Batman Beyond because this show really has a lot of that energy, but is also very much for mature audiences.
