Hulu Cancels Seth Meyers’ Animated Series ‘The Awesomes’

The Awesomes” just received some not-so-awesome news: Hulu has cancelled the animated series after three seasons, sources tell Variety.

Hailing from Seth Meyers, the comedic show follows a group of superheroes who replace the members of a legendary superhero team. Known as The Awesomes, the new members attempt to put themselves back together in the face of intense media and government skepticism.

Meyers co-created the series with “Saturday Night Live’s” Mike Shoemaker, who is also a producer on Meyers’ late-night NBC show. Lorne Michaels also served as an exec producer with the duo.

Meyers lends his voice to Jeremy Awesome, the young new leader of the superhero group. The rest of the cast is chock-full of “SNL” friends from Taran Killam, Kenan Thompson, Bill Hader, Rachel Dratch, writers Emily Spivey and Paula Pell, plus “The Mindy Project’s” Ike Barinholtz, “Parks and Recreation’s” Rashida Jones, “MAD TV’s” Bobby Lee and Meyers’ brother Josh Meyers.

First launching in 2013, the most recent season wrapped up on Nov. 3 of this year. Each of the three seasons spanned 10 episodes. Hulu had no comment on the series’ cancellation.
