Will there be Future Man Season 3?

Fans are still waiting for Hulu to confirm the series for a third season. Based on the fact that Hulu officially confirmed the renewal of the show for Season 2 on January 8, 2018, three months after Season 1 premiered on November 14, 2017, fans may have to wait a few months before Hulu confirms the series for yet another season.

The series received favorable critical reviews. Season 1 earned an approval rating of 82 percent (based on 38 reviews) on Rotten Tomatoes, with 90% of the audience saying that they liked the series.

So far, Season 2 is earning a perfect approval rating of 100% based on seven critical reviews on Rotten Tomatoes.

Josh Hutcherson will return as Josh Futturman, a janitor at a research facility who is recruited to save the world after becoming the first player to complete the Biotic Wars video game.

Eliza Coupe is expected to reprise her role as Tiger, a soldier from 152 years in the future who recruits Josh to help avert a catastrophic real-life biotic war in the future.

Derek Wilson will play Wolf, who also travels from the future to recruit Josh.

Future Man: What the series is about

The series follows Josh Futturman (Josh Hutcherson), a janitor who thinks he is a failure. But after a session of his favorite game Biotic Wars, he is visited by the game’s main characters, Tiger and Wolf, who want him to help save the world in a real-life Biotic Wars.

Future Man Season 3 plot

In Season 1, our time traveling heroes, John, Tiger, and Wolf, set out to avert a catastrophic Biotic Wars in the future by meddling with the historical timeline. But they find that by averting the catastrophe in one timeline, they only ended up creating another timeline with a different catastrophic ending.

In Season 2, after defeating the villain Doctor Stu Camillo (Haley Joel Osment), the bumbling heroes find themselves in yet another timeline with an unfavorable ending.

Season 3 will pick up where Season 2 left off with our heroes embarking on yet another mission to meddle with history.

Future Man Season 1 parodied The Terminator while Season 2 parodied Mad Max.

Co-creators Kyle Hunter and Ariel Shaffir revealed in a recent interview with Metro that they already have a clear picture of the structure of Season 3 and where they want to go if Hulu renews the series for another season.

Hunter suggested that as part of the show’s exploitation of ’80s nostalgia for comedy, they might parody Back to the Future in Season 3.

Back to the Future is a science fiction film trilogy by Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale that was first released in 1985.

Future Man Season 2 is currently available streaming on Hulu.
