“Future Man” has been renewed for a third and final season, Hulu said Tuesday. The show’s concluding season will be 8 episodes, down from 13 in previous seasons.
The sci-fi comedy stars Josh Hutcherson as a socially inept janitor and world-ranked gamer recruited by time-traveling soldiers to help save the world after he wins an unbeatable game called Cybergeddon. Eliza Coupe and Derek Wilson co-star, with Haley Joel Osment, Glenne Headly, Ed Begley Jr., Robert Craighead, Sara Amini and Shaun J. Brown rounding out the cast.
Created by Kyle Hunter, Ariel Shaffir, and Howard Overman, with Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg serving as executive producers, “Future Man” came to Hulu from Sony Pictures Television, Seth Rogen’s Point Grey Pictures, Matt Tolmach Productions, and Hutcherson’s production company, Turkeyfoot.
The renewal comes three months after Season 2 debuted on Hulu on January 11.
