Tuca & Bertie is an adult animated television series that premiered on Netflix in 2019. Despite critical acclaim, it was cancelled after 1 season due to the animation company behind it unionizing. A year later, Adult Swim announced that they were picking up Tuca and Bertie for a second season, which officially premiered on June 13th, 2021. Due to Adult Swim's stricter guidelines on content, interference from advertisers (notably the Truth Initiative, an anti-smoking organization), and wanting to target a TV-14 rating (compared to netflix's TV-MA rating for season 1), the second season has extra censorship in place for nudity, smoking, and language.
