The Awesomes: Season Two and Still Saving the World

August 2nd, 2014 by Lauren Thorpe Publicist


“Some are born great. Others try super hard.” Following an awesome Comic-Con, Prock and his not-so-superhero team are back to fight crime and save the world in season 2 of “The Awesomes” premiering today on Hulu.

This season is better than ever with Entertainment Weekly claiming the “witty writing and spirited vocals from Meyers’ SNL pals are what truly animate this cartoon.”

‘The Awesomes’ returns for Season 2 under the leadership of Prock (Seth Meyers) to take on bigger and badder villains, welcome a new superhero and even navigate a steamy love triangle. The team encounters a world of trouble when Malocchio Jr. (Will Forte), a mild-mannered accountant, transforms into a maniacal supervillain. Do The Awesomes have what it takes to stop him? Will Prock ever fill his dad’s gigantic shoes? Whatever happened to Hotwire (Rashida Jones)? Questions will be answered! Adventures will be had!

Co-created by Seth Meyers and Michael Shoemaker, starring voices by Seth Meyers, Ike Barinholtz, Rashida Jones, Bill Hader, Taran Killam, Paula Pell, Josh Meyers, Kenan Thompson, Bobby Lee, Steve Higgins, Emily Spivey, Kate McKinnon, Amy Poehler, Will Forte, and Maya Rudolph. The Awesomes is adult animation at its best.

See below for a behind the scenes look at some of the new cast including Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph and Will Forte along with co-creators Mike Shoemaker and Seth Meyers.

And don’t miss out on Josh Meyers’ (voice of ‘Perfect Man’) appearance on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” tonight at 12:35AM ET/PT on NBC!
