After AMC’s adaptation of beloved comic book series Preacher was renewed and canceled last year, Future Man has met the same fate at Hulu. The time-travelling comedy series, which also comes from Preacher‘s producing duo of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, along with their Sausage Party pals Kyle Hunter and Ariel Shaffir, will return for a third season before retiring with all its loose ends tied up (we hope).
Future Man stars Hunger Games actor Josh Hutcherson as a slacker gamer who gets pulled out of his day job as a janitor to save the world from extinction by time travellers Wolf and Tiger (Derek Wilson and Eliza Coupe), and season two recently left things on a bit of a cliffhanger – messing with time for the good of humankind hasn’t quite worked in the team’s favour, it turns out. Haley Joel Osment joined the cast for season 2 in a key role, and we spoke to him about it on our interview podcast, The Fourth Wall.
Future Man Season 3 Release Date and Episodes
Future Man season 3 will premiere on Friday April 3 on Hulu. All eight episodes of the season will be made available then.
Future Man Season 3 Cast
The main cast is set to return for Future Man season 3, according to Deadline. This includes Josh Hutcherson, Eliza Coupe, and Derek Wilson. Even though the viewing numbers on season 2 weren’t terrific, it scored 100 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, and definitely has a strong fan base.

Future Man Season 3 Story
Per Hulu’s official description:
Convicted of time crimes and sentenced to death by entertainment, Josh, Tiger, and Wolf become fugitives, on the run through time, trying desperately to evade capture while clearing their names and fixing the big mess of history they’ve made along the way.
