I’m very excited to announce today that the Hulu Original The Awesomes from our friends Seth Meyers and Mike Shoemaker has been renewed for a third season. The second season of the adult animated series continues to roll out every Monday with hilarious new episodes.
When we first premiered season one of The Awesomes two years ago, we knew it was going to be a big success for Hulu. With a growing fan base from season to season and a cast featuring some of the funniest people on television, it was a natural decision for us to renew the show for a third season.
I can’t wait to see what “Prock” and his crime-fighting cohorts have in store for us next!
The Awesomes follows the story of the greatest superhero team in history, The Awesomes, and what happens after most of them leave, and the rag-tag group that takes their places. The second season premiered on Hulu on August 4, 2014 and introduced a cast of new characters voiced by Amy Poehler, Will Forte, Maya Rudolph and Kate McKinnon.
Co-created by Seth Meyers and Mike Shoemaker, The Awesomes is adult animation at its best. The series combines the thrills of comic book storytelling with the unique comedic voice of show co-creators Seth Meyers and Mike Shoemaker (Late Night with Seth Meyers) and stars an all-star cast of characters including Seth Meyers, Ike Barinholtz, Bill Hader, Taran Killam, Rashida Jones, Paula Pell, Josh Meyers, Kenan Thompson, Bobby Lee, Steve Higgins, Emily Spivey and Bobby Moynihan.
The Awesomes is executive produced by Seth Meyers, Mike Shoemaker and Broadway Video’s Andrew Singer and is a Hulu co-production with Broadway Video (Saturday Night Live, Late Night With Seth Meyers, The Tonight Show), animated by Bento Box Entertainment (Bob’s Burgers).
