With the announcement at the TCA Winter Press Tour in early 2018 that Future Man season 2 would indeed be happening, Hulu has given fans reassurance that the many unresolved questions left unanswered in the season 1 finale will be able to see a possible resolution and further development. What kind of future have Tiger and Wolf returned to? What fate lies in store for Josh now that his freedom lies in the balance?
According to a synopsis from Hulu, Future Man season 2 picks up in 2162, and Josh, Wolf, and Tiger learn that their season one mission to stop the cure from getting out didn’t work. In this timeline, Stu Camillo is now in power, having created the cure, and launched a plan to relocate humanity to Mars. A shadowy organization called the Pointed Circle seeks to recruit Josh to take Stu down – but are they the good guys, or is Stu? As Wolf quickly acclimates to the strange customs of this time, Tiger struggles with her Biotic identity and searches for an escape. Josh unites the team in an epic plan to save the world, but their time-traveling catches up to them, and they must reckon with their choices and what to do next.
