Prime Video Announces April 29 Premiere Date for Undone
First-look footage from Season Two of the critically acclaimed, genre-bending series
debuted during the show’s panel at SXSW
AUSTIN, Texas—March 12, 2022—Prime Video today released first-look footage from Season Two of the critically acclaimed, genre-bending animated series Undone during the show’s South by Southwest (SXSW) panel. The long-awaited new season will premiere exclusively on Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide on Friday, April 29.
From acclaimed creators Kate Purdy and Raphael Bob-Waksberg (BoJack Horseman) comes Undone, a half-hour, genre-bending animated dramedy that explores the elastic nature of reality through its central character, Alma (Rosa Salazar), a 28 year old living in San Antonio, Texas alongside her mother Camila (Constance Marie) and sister Becca (Angelique Cabral). After getting into a car accident and nearly dying, Alma finds she has a new relationship to time. She develops this new ability in order to find out the truth about her father Jacob’s (Bob Odenkirk) death.
In Season Two, Alma realizes there are deeper mysteries in her family’s past. However, no one in her family is interested in digging up uncomfortable truths with her—until she finally convinces her sister Becca to help her look. As the sisters search for answers, they unravel a complex network of memories and motivations that have shaped who they are today. They realize by healing this family trauma they can make all of their lives better.
The series is brought to life using rotoscope animation—a first for episodic television. The unique look of the animation, under the direction of Hisko Hulsing (Cobain: Montage of Heck), utilizes a variety of mediums, including oil painting on canvas to render the backgrounds. Amsterdam-based animation studio Submarine assembled an incredible team of artists and painters from all over Europe to bring all the animation elements to life, with the rotoscoping elements being handled by the veteran team behind A Scanner Darkly at Austin-based Minnow Mountain (Tower).
Purdy and Bob-Waksberg serve as executive producers along with Noel Bright (BoJack Horseman), Steven A. Cohen (BoJack Horseman), Tommy Pallotta (A Scanner Darkly), Femke Wolting (Tower), Felix Bruno (Tower), and Hulsing. Hulsing also serves as the series director and production designer. Rosa Salazar and Bob Odenkirk serve as producers. Undone is produced by Amazon Studios and Tornante Productions.
