It’s back to the messed up future with the first season 2 trailer for last year’s genre comedy series Futureman., and it looks like not much has changed except time periods and a wacky new premise of sorts.
The first season of Future Man revolved around a young slacker played by Josh Hutcherson who is visited by two warriors from the future (played by Eliza Coupe and Derek Wilson) who believe him to be The One who can save the world from utter chaos. That season traveled around in time, mostly focusing on events in present day with intervals to the 1960s and 80s and brief glimpses at a possible future.
The warriors return in season two, along with a new mission since the first one it turns out failed and they now exist in a new, post-apocalyptic timeline. Looks like more of the same brand of absurdist, low humor that was the trademark of season one.
The new season hits Hulu on January 11th.
