Hulu renews ‘Runaways’ and ‘Future Man’ for a second season
Hulu has renewed two of its nerdier original shows. Both Runaways and Future Man will get second seasons of 13 episodes each. Given that they debuted in the previous months, it’s unclear when viewers will get to see them.
Runaways adapts Marvel’s comic of the same name about a group of misfit kids fleeing their parents, who they discover are more than they seem. While not really superhero fare, the diverse cast and teen dramatics distinguish the show from others based on graphic works. Future Man, on the other hand, is a part-time satirical adventure with sophomoric humor thanks to creators Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg (Sausage Party, Superbad). The show follows a janitor whose video game victory gets him chosen by time-traveling warriors to save the future — a Last Starfighter reference that begets many more sendups of 80s nerd culture.
