Adult Swim announced today that Tuca & Bertie has been picked up for a third season. The good news comes with two episodes remaining in the animated comedy's sophomore run at its new home.

The series premiered as a Netflix original in 2019 and appeared set for a lengthy run after being met with overwhelming acclaim, making many critics' best-of-the-year lists. But viewership did not meet the streamer's expectations and it was axed after just one season. Less than a year later, Adult Swim stepped in and revived the show for Season 2, which has continued to garner critical praise since its return this summer.

Tuca & Bertie follows a self-confident and free-spirited toucan named Tuca and her best friend and roommate, a self-doubting song thrush named Bertie. When Bertie gets closer with her live-in boyfriend, Tuca must move into her own place - which is still in the same building. Despite their new living arrangement, they still help guide each other through the ups and downs of life as a bird.
