Seth Meyers’s Animated Series ‘The Awesomes’ Renewed for a Second Season
There are more episodes of Seth Meyers’s animated superhero series The Awesomes on the way. Hulu had decided to renew the show for a second season consisting of 10 more episodes, THR reports. Originally developed for MTV, The Awesomes started its 10-episode first season in August. The show, which consistently ranks on Hulu’s Top 10 list, was created by Meyers and Mike Shoemaker, who’s a producer on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and will produce Meyers’s version of Late Night when it starts up in February. The show features the voice talents of Rashida Jones, Kenan Thompson, Taran Killam, Bobby Lee, Ike Barinholtz, Bill Hader, Rachel Dratch, and SNL writers Paula Pell and Emily Spivey, with Meyers playing the main character, the heir to the leader of a once-great league of superheroes.
Meyers is going to have a lot on his plate over the next year, with him remaining at SNL for at least the start of the upcoming season while prepping to take over Late Night in February and working on another season of The Awesomes on top of all that.
