Invisible City will live up to its title by disappearing entirely after being canceled by Netflix following its second season. Those who were anticipating Invisible City Season 3 will be dismayed by the news, especially after the recent success of other Brazilian shows like Criminal Code.

Invisible City is a Brazilian fantasy series currently available to stream on Netflix. The show was created by Carlos Saldanha, who directed the first three installments of the Ice Age franchise and has also helmed the animated movies Robots and Rio since. Yet here, he delves into the realm of live-action TV with this folklore mystery series.

The Netflix original series tells the story of an environmental police officer, Eric (Marco Pigossi), who stumbles upon a magical world inhabited by mythical entities in the Brazilian rainforest. He soon discovers that he is intrinsically linked to this sacred world and vows to protect it.

The second season finds Eric searching for his missing daughter Luna (Manu Dieguez) while he contends with his own developing powers. It was largely overlooked by the critics’ community, with only two reviews submitted to Rotten Tomatoes, but Invisible City has its growing fan base.

Will there be a Season 3 of Invisible City?

Official Renewal Status: Canceled

Invincible City has been canceled by Netflix after two seasons and the show will not return for Season 3. The news did the rounds on X, formerly Twitter, courtesy of multiple Brazilian news accounts before the source was eventually confirmed by What’s On Netflix as actor Marco Pigossi in the following post on his Instagram page:

In English, the above quote reads:

“Folha de S.Paulo released numbers and according to Netflix Brazil the first project to appear as one of the most watched in Brazil was Invisible City! What a lovely news ! I’m very proud to have been part of such a powerful and Brazilian project. I thank and congratulate everyone who has been a part of it. It was an honor to give life to Erik, I bid farewell to this character with much affection. Long live our audiovisual!”

While this isn’t exactly a definitive statement, the past-tense tone of the whole thing suggests that Netflix are through with the show and this is certainly how the post has been interpreted.

Despite talking up the show’s numbers in the above post, Season 2 performed much worse, which likely contributed to the streamer’s decision not to renew the show.
