Plot Synopsis

THE AWESOMES is a half-hour animated comedy series that follows the adventures of the greatest superhero team ever -- after all the good members quit. Now, led by Prock, the son of the original Mr. Awesome, this group of not-so-super heroes struggles to find a way to save the world -- and sometimes just to find a way to make it through the day without hurting themselves. On Monday, August 4, 2014, Hulu released the first two episodes of the 10-episode second season. Season 2 picks up 30 days after the death of the evil Dr. Malocchio, who, in his video will, gives the last remaining vile of his serum to his son, Malocchio Jr., to safeguard. Plus, the Awesomes must find a new team member to replace Hotwire. Hulu debuted the third season of THE AWESOMES on Tuesday, September 8, 2015, releasing the first two episodes of the 10-episode new season. In Season 3, the new Awesomes and team leader Prock have finally been accepted by America. Their only problem: the team's founder and Prock's Dad, Mr. Awesome, has returned from space and he's been infected with Dr. Malocchio's evil serum and has a plan to destroy his own son's team. Plus, in the season opener, "Seaman's Revenge," The Awesomes visit their old friend Seaman at the bottom of the ocean when undersea creatures stage a series of attacks on land. Guest voices for Season 3 include Andy Samberg, Billy Eichner, Jack McBrayer, Fred Armisen and Cecily Strong.
On Tuesday, November 3, 2015, Hulu released the Season 3 finale of THE AWESOMES. In the season ender, "The Final Showdown," Mr. Awesome gets a hold of the only thing in the world that can kill him, so The Awesomes must get creative to stop him. Perfect Man discovers a secret from his past. Guest starring Fred Armisen, Vanessa Bayer, Will Forte, and Leslie Jones.
