A good and sad news arrived on April 9, 2019, when Hulu announced that Future Man had been renewed for Season 3, which will be the show's last. No exact release date has been announced as of yet. Unlike two previous seasons, the upcoming installment will contain only eight episodes versus thirteen. It's unknown so far, why Hulu opted to reduce the number of episodes in Season 3.

The decision on renewal has been made because of excellent statistics of the 2nd installment. On Metacritic, Future Man Season 2 holds a score of 7.1/10 among the viewers. On Rotten Tomatoes, the current round of the show has a score of 7.84/10 and a 100% approval rating from critics, while the viewers have evaluated the season at 3.7/5, given a 68% rating.
We honestly have been expecting the decision on renewal, but not ready to learn about the cancellation. In fact, we have no idea why Hulu opted to wrap Future Man, the web series with such positive indicators, however, it's seems that the management had their own vision on the subject of the Future Man's destiny. So guys, it's official, there won't be Future Man Season 4, unfortunately.
Future Man Season 3 Release Date
As mentioned above, Future Man Season 3 release date is yet to be announced. And as you may have guessed, there are only two possible periods for the upcoming premiere, given the current schedule of the web series. Therefore, in our opinion, Future Man Season 3 premiere might take place this fall, in November 2019, or it might be shifted for January 2020.
Yet the data above is just our forecast. We should thereby wait for the official announcement from Hulu. As soon as the streaming service announces the exact premiere date for the upcoming, 3rd season, we will update this page. Stay tuned for updates.
