Since its release in 2019, the acclaimed animated comedy about two anthropomorphic birds, Tuca and Bertie, has managed to hilariously portray millennial dread.
We’ve watched the comedy elegantly touch on anxiety and adult friendships across its last two realistic seasons, telling the narrative of two 30-year-old winged best friends living together in an apartment. But, as with anything worthwhile, we want more Tuca and Bertie, and we want it immediately.
Tuca and Bertie is a wholesome sitcom created by Lisa Hanawalt, the producer of Netflix’s Bojack Horseman. It depicts real-life challenges that young women face today.
The toucan Tuca and the thrush Bertie, the primary characters, have battled with romantic drama, workplace prejudice, and prior traumas – dealing with their troubles together and relying on one another for comfort. Every episode is a joy to watch.
Tuca and Bertie’s tale hasn’t been easy to follow since the show’s transfer from Netflix to Adult Swim in 2019, and you might be wondering what’s next for our feathered pals.
The Digital Fix is here to assist you. We’ll go over all you need to know about the Adult Swim series down below. Here’s everything we know about Tuca and Bertie season 3: its release date, actors, trailer, and more.
RELEASE DATE SPECULATION FOR TUCA AND BERTIE SEASON 3
The good news is that a third season of Tuca ad Bertie is in the works and will premiere in 2022. Lisa Hanawalt, the show’s creator, shared an update on our favorite birdy duet on Instagram in March (via Swimpedia).

Hanawalt published the good news alongside a Vulture piece mentioning Netflix’s quick termination of the series in 2019 after only one season, demonstrating that no matter what the streaming service’s algorithm says, you can’t keep a hit program down. Tuca and Bertie was dropped from Netflix’s lineup in 2019, despite critical acclaim, but was snatched up by Adult Swim and has been thriving ever since.
According to the latest update, fans can start anticipating new birdy stuff as early as August! Any firm release dates will be announced here. Seasons 2 and 3 of Tuca and Bertie will be available on HBO Max and Adult Swim, according to Hanawalt’s social media post, so it’s time to start renewing those memberships!
TRAILER SPECULATION FOR TUCA AND BERTIE SEASON 3
There is currently no trailer for Tuca and Bertie season 3 available (sorry). This will most likely be the situation till the new installment’s production is completed. However, we may not have to wait long for a preview clip before we all start squawking in despair.
Season 3 is set to premiere in the summer of 2022, which means a trailer will most likely be released in the next few months, given that summer is just around the corner. Keep an eye on this page as we’ll keep you updated on any new promotional material that comes our way.
To hold our interest in the show’s future, Hanawalt shared this adorable artwork in 2021.

PLOT SUMMARY FOR TUCA AND BERTIE SEASON 3
There is no official summary for Tuca and Bertie season 3, but based on how season 2 concluded, we can make some pretty good assumptions about the plot and topics that will be explored in the upcoming chapter.
Tuca and Bertie underwent major character changes in Season 2’s last episode, ‘The Flood.’ Tuca’s suppressed feelings, which she had been collecting in cups for years, came to the surface in the episode, and Bertie had to be there to help her through all of her unhappy ghosts…all while a flood wreaked havoc on Bird Town. Isn’t that a nerve-wracking first therapy session?
Tuca is also forced to face her difficult relationship with Kara, her seagull girlfriend, who “isn’t even polite,” as Bertie puts it. Tuca realized Kara wasn’t the ideal bird for her after she left her alone and didn’t check if she was alive or dead while the town was covered in water.
Tuca, Bertie, and Bertie’s lover Speckle are on the rooftop of their apartment as rescue helicopters circle the flooded Bird Town towards the end of the episode.
Obviously, we’ll hear more about the flood’s aftermath in the next season. Speckle’s dream house, which he had been renovating during Season 2, will almost certainly be damaged, forcing the trio to make new living arrangements. Tuca is also newly single, so she’ll be out and about, causing mayhem and possibly finding a new love.
On top of that, Bertie is expected to return to therapy in the new season. Because fear is still causing her body to break apart, it’s evident that the thrush is still at work, but she might not be alone at the doctor’s office this time. We also saw Bertie’s therapist talking to a couple in the season 2 finale’s post-credit scene.
This could indicate some changes in Season 3. Tuca may join Bertie in therapy, working through all of her troubles with her friend and a professional now that she has started talking about her feelings instead of storing them in marked cups.
So far, all of these plot theories have been just that: theories. Adult Swim and Hanawalt have yet to provide any specific teases or hints. Fans may rest assured that, no matter what happens in the next installment, things will change, but Bertie and Tuca’s endearing bond will most likely remain unchanged.
