The Awesomes season 2 returns August 4 with Amy Poehler, Forte and more
The ragtag bunch of misfit superheroes is coming back to Hulu for a second season, and this time they are bringing even more big-name voice-work. ‘The Awesomes’ return for Season 2 under the leadership of Prock (Seth Meyers) to take on even more villains than they faced in season one.
Now there will even be a new superhero introduced into the mix to add a love triangle situation to the animated comedy. The team encounters a world of trouble when Malocchio Jr. (Will Forte), a mild-mannered accountant, transforms into a maniacal supervillain.
The network made the announcement earlier today, even teasing a conclusion to Hotwire (Rashida Jones’ character) in season one. “Questions will be answered!” promises Hulu ahead of Comic-Con this week.
The series was co-created by Seth Meyers and Michael Shoemaker, and season two will also add Kate McKinnon, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph and more. More voiceover work and other cast members are sure to be announced this week at San Diego comic con, and as the show moves further along in its second season.
