If you, like us, were bummed to find out that all seven seasons of 30 Rock are leaving Netflix at the end of October, then you, like us, will be thrilled to hear that the Emmy-winning comedy is headed to Hulu in its entirety on Oct. 1.
The streamer announced 30 Rock’s impending addition today as part of a new agreement between with NBCUniversal Television and New Media Distribution that will make Hulu the exclusive on-demand home to all episodes of 30 Rock, as well as hundreds of episodes of other popular NBC shows. Hulu recently announced a similar deal with NBC, in which Hulu made Will & Grace available to stream for the first time ever.
Here’s Hulu’s breakdown of all the shows included in today’s deal:
30 Rock: A three-time Emmy Award winner for Outstanding Comedy Series as well as a critical darling, 30 Rock comes from the brilliant mind of creator and star Tina Fey, whose character Liz Lemon is asked by her ultra corporate boss Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin) to somehow make the fictional program “TGS with Tracy Jordan” a success. Working with an oddball staff, no budget and no sleep, Liz keeps up the good fight against long odds. Also starring Tracy Morgan, Jack McBrayer, Scott Adsit, Judah Friedlander and Jane Krakowski, 30 Rock aired for seven seasons and arrives in its entirety on Hulu on October 1st.
Parenthood: The family favorite, hit drama series will stream in its entirety in early 2018 on Hulu. The critically-acclaimed series, which aired for six seasons, has remained popular with viewers since its finale. Parenthood is a one-hour drama from Award-winning executive producers Jason Katims, Ron Howard and Brian Grazer. It follows the trials and tribulations of the very large, colorful and imperfect Braverman family and features stars including Peter Krause, Lauren Graham, Craig T. Nelson, Bonnie Bedelia, Dax Shepard, Erika Christensen, Monica Potter, Sam Jaeger and Joy Bryant.
There’s Johnny: Paul Reiser’s highly-anticipated series, There’s Johnny, will make its debut on Hulu. The deal marks the premiere for the NBCUniversal period comedy, set in the world of “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson” circa 1972, starring Tony Danza.
Made in Chelsea: The first 13 seasons of the BAFTA award-winning, reality television series from the UK will make their US SVOD debut on Hulu. Since its premiere, the hit series has captivated audiences in the UK and resulted in many spin-offs. Through the deal, the complete series will be made available to stream in the US on Hulu later this year.
Face Off: The first 10 seasons of SYFY’s hit reality competition series, Face Off, will become available to stream on Hulu. The series will make its SVOD debut in early 2018. Face Off follows special effects make-up artists as they participate in elaborate challenges for a grand prize and the honor of being Hollywood’s next great effects artist.
Hulu is already home to a number of flagship NBC shows, including This Is Us, Blindspot and Saturday Night Live. With today’s announcement, the streamer and network’s already-thriving relationship has borne some very funny new fruit.
