'Tuca & Bertie' Stars Tiffany Haddish and Ali Wong on How Their Real-Life Friendship Connects to the Show

Something I learned while talking to the delightful stars of Tuca & Bertie is that it's really hard to keep a straight face while Tiffany Haddish is playing around with her Zoom filters, adding long mustaches and fake eyelashes to her visage. But that only escalated the fun of getting to speak to her and co-star Ali Wong, who seemed thrilled to be reunited to discuss the second season of the animated series, making a semi-miraculous return to Adult Swim after Netflix declined to make a second season.

Actors Tiffany Haddish and Ali Wong joined Cheddar to talk about the return of the animated series "Tuca & Bertie." Originally premiering on Netflix and later picked up by Cartoon Network's Adult Swim. The show, geared towards millennials about two bird besties, tackles real-life issues like mental health and anxiety, described by Haddish as relatable beyond the generation. Wong noted that going into the show, she had no idea that the themes and messages would be so deep but is happy to be part of normalizing the conversation. The second season of "Tuca & Bertie" is set to air Sunday, June 13, on Adult Swim.

Why Tiffany Haddish and Ali Wong never gave up on Tuca & Bertie

Many were devastated when news broke that Tuca & Bertie—one of the best new shows of 2019—had involuntarily flown the coop at Netflix. With its well-drawn characters (both literally and figuratively) and idiosyncratic style, Lisa Hanawalt’s animated comedy had quickly endeared itself to a loyal fanbase who, in the wake of cancellation, flocked to to sign a petition in support of its future. Its stars remained optimistic, too: During the 2019 Television Critic Association’s summer tour, Tiffany Haddish assured the press in attendance: “I talked to the creator [Hanawalt], and we definitely are going to make it go somewhere. It’s going to go. It’s going to end up somewhere.” Almost a year later, Haddish’s prophecy was fulfilled; Adult Swim had answered the call and announced it would be the new home to the vivacious Tuca (Haddish), the musing Bertie (Ali Wong), and the rest of the colorful denizens of Bird Town.

If you’re a fan of recent comic book series that aren’t tied to Marvel and DC superheroes, you’re probably very familiar with the work of Brian K. Vaughan. He’s the co-creator of comics such as “Y: The Last Man” (soon to be an FX series) and “Saga” (which is definitely something that needs to be adapted as a series).
