Hulu s library of original programming is a little less awesome now. The streaming video platform has canceled The Awesomes , an animated superhero comedy co-created by Seth Meyers , after three seasons. The Awesomes was one of Hulus first ever original series. It was teased at back -to- back Newfronts presentations, and it was presented as a big part of Hulus plan to move beyond licensed TV shows and films and into a new space where it could fully match up with competitors like Hulu and Netflix. With those big expectations hanging over it, The Awesomes premiered in 2013, and it was decent . It didn't exactly revolutionize the TV industry, but it did pick up a large enough audience to last for three seasons. Variety , which first reported the news of The Awesomes cancellation, reached out to Hulu, but representatives for the streaming platform declined to comment. By cancelling The Awesomes , Hulu is following a similar pattern to both Amazon and Hulu. Amazons first original series, Alpha House , lasted just two seasons before it got the axe. Netflix's maiden voyage into the world of originals , Lillyhammer , managed to pick up a third season before its own cancellation. All three of these series were greeted with similar reception, with critics finding them to be good-but-not-great viewers experiences. At the same time, they established their respective distributing platforms as legitimate players in the TV industry and opened the doors for more successful series. Read More...
