In her statement informing the public of the cancellation, Tuca and Bertie creator Lisa Hanawalt thanked fans of the show — particularly those who dressed up as Halloween characters — and thanked Adult Swim . “Working with Adult Swim has been very creative and fulfilling, our leaders have all been smart and thoughtful,” she wrote. The showrunner and animator also highlighted the behind-the-scenes creative team, writing, “Please review the credits and take note of all the cast and crew names.” She continued by crediting the Animation Guild and the Writers Guild of America thanked. “I hope that all show makers who have the leverage to fight to unionize their productions,” Hanawalt added.
To make Tuca and Bertie’s recent cancellation even more heartbreaking, Hanawalt says she’s already picked an ending to the story. In her social media post, she noted, “I still have a beautiful and weird ending in mind for T&B, hopefully one day we’ll get a chance to end this story.” If there’s a bright spot, it’s Hanawalt Refusal to hint at giving up “Tuca and Bertie”. It’s possible that another network will swoop in (bird puns, hooray!) to give the show a new nest.
Meanwhile, Hanawalt says she’s not done creating it yet. She concluded her writing by stating that she intends to continue making similar stories regardless of the circumstances.
