Hulu has picked up a new season of animated superhero comedy “The Awesomes,” the online video company said Thursday

Created by “Saturday Night Live”s’ Seth Meyers and his long-time collaborator Mike Shoemaker, the show follows a group of hapless heroes who step in to replace a disbanded team of superhuman crime fighters. Meyers and Shoemaker will both return to voice their characters in the second season of the show, along with such comedy and SNL vets as Rashida Jones, Kenan Thompson, Taran Killam, Bill Hader and Rachel Dratch.

In a release announcing the pick-up, Meyers teased new villains, new members of the super-team and a possible love triangle.
