Two popular Hulu series, Future Man and Into the Dark, will debut episodes tomorrow, April 3.

In the case of Future Man, starring The Hunger Games’ Josh Hutcherson, the third eight-episode season is also the swan song for the science fiction comedy.

Hutcherson plays Josh Futturman, a janitor who, having successfully completed a video game called Biotic War, is recruited to save humanity by mysterious visitors from the future. 

In this final adventure, Josh, Tiger (Eliza Coupe) and Wolf (Derek Wilson), having been convicted of time crimes and sentenced to death by entertainment, try to evade capture and clear their names by chronological hopscotching.

Seth Rogen (below right), who also appears on the show, and Evan Goldberg directed the series. Kyle Hunter and Ariel Shaffir created and executive produced.

Into the Dark, Hulu’s monthly horror anthology series whose feature-length episodes are inspired by different holidays, returns Friday with a sequel to “Pooka!,” the third episode from season one.

Into the Dark Pooka Lives on Hulu

Into the Dark: Pooka Lives follows a group of 30-something friends who make up their own Creepypasta about Pooka for laughs (Happy Pooka Day?). Unfortunately, their story becomes so viral on the Internet that it produces more murderous versions of the creature.

The cast includes Felicia Day, Star Trek Next Generation‘s Wil Wheaton, Malcolm Barrett, Rachel Bloom, Jonah Ray, Lyndie Greenwood and Gavin Stenhouse.

Hulu has two subscription plans: $5.99 a month with commercials; $11.99 a month with no ads. Both offer the first month free.
