“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,” said Beatrice Springborn, Hulu’s head of originals, in a statement.
“The Awesomes” is a Hulu co-production with “SNL” honcho Lorne Michaels’ Broadway Video. In addition to Meyers and Shoemaker, series executive producers include Broadway Video’s Andrew Singer and Bento Box Entertainment, which serves as animator of the series.
