These days, streaming services are putting out some of the most outstanding original series I have ever seen in a long time, giving cable a run for its money. One 2017 series from Hulu called Future Man was one of the best shows I have watched, not just on streaming services, but across the board. Ever since I binged the entire show in one sitting, I have been waiting to hear even a little bit of information on season two… and I finally got some! And not just news but a trailer and a release date. Check it out!
Season two will premiere on January 11, 2019, and I am so excited that I could spit. After hearing whispers through the grapevine that the every season would play out like an anthology series with each one having new characters and an unrelated story, I was devastated and not very excited for it, but there was no way to know for sure until now. As you can see, season 2 of Future Man will be a continuation of the first season with all of our favorite characters returning, along with some interesting new ones (I’m looking at you, Seth Rogan!). Buckle up, bitches, ’cause we’re headed to the FUTURE!
Season 1 of Future Man followed Josh Futterman (Josh Hutcherson: Hunger Games franchise) as a down and out loser who hates his job as a janitor as Kronish Labs and loves video games… well, video GAME. He is obsessed with beating Biotic Wars, a game that has never been beaten. When Josh finally conquers the game, two resistance leaders, Tiger (Eliza Coupe: Scrubs TV series) and Wolf (Derek Wilson: Preacher TV series), travel back in time to collect him. You see, the game was a training and vetting program to find an elite savior for the future. Unfortunately, Josh isn’t exactly what they had in mind.
What follows is time traveling to ’80s pop bands and going from rathole to rathole for some bumbling world saving that doesn’t seem to stick. While some episodes drag on just a hair, the entire series was entertaining, and I found myself howling with laughter. I cannot WAIT for season 2 of Future Man to arrive on Hulu on January 11th, and in the meantime, you better binge the series, so at the very least, you can include Kronish Balls on your holiday menu.
