TVLine Items: Tuca & Bertie Premiere, House of Payne Renewed and More

Tuca & Bertie are getting a second lease on life this summer: After getting cancelled at Netflix after just one season, the animated comedy will return with new episodes Sunday, June 13 at 11:30/10:30c on Adult Swim.

The revived series features the voices of Tiffany Haddish and Ali Wong as Tuca and Bertie, respectively, who “are best friends, and they’re both full of ghosts!” per the official description. “Bertie is busy excavating her inner ghouls with the help of a therapist, while Tuca prefers to stuff hers behind the toilet. She’ll deal with them later, right now she’s just too busy trying not to be single anymore! Meanwhile, Speckle (Steven Yeun) is building a new house but soon finds he’s driven to the brink of insanity… good thing he’s just a cartoon.”
