With Disney becoming the sole owner of Hulu, many people wondered what would become of it. Anyone with half a brain, which leaves out online observations, knew that they would have an outlet for their Fox library and non-family friendly content that doesn’t fit into Disney+. That is where FX on Hulu comes it.
In March of 2020, FX on Hulu will feature every season of more than 40 FX original series, episodes of most current series on FX and FXX will become available via FX on Hulu immediately after they premiere.
“We’re excited to become the official streaming home to the award-winning current and legacy series that FX has produced over nearly two decades, as well as brand-new original series that will be exclusive to Hulu subscribers – all available through ‘FX on Hulu,’” said Randy Freer, Hulu’s Chief Executive Officer. “FX has solidified its position as a premium brand that consumers are passionate about, and we can’t wait to bring its valuable content offering to our customers, all in one place.”
“We’re thrilled to have Hulu as our streaming partner with the creation of FX on Hulu, which will be the best and most complete representation of the FX brand, finally putting us on equal footing with competitors like HBO, John Landgraf, the Chairman of FX Networks and FX Productions. “This will allow us to expand FX’s original programming lineup and to reach Hulu’s growing audience of young and highly engaged subscribers, whom we believe will love these shows. We are more committed than ever to quality over quantity, with our primary focus on excellence that can cut through the clutter at a time of unprecedented consumer choice. This is a game-changing opportunity for FX, and we can’t wait to embark on this journey with Randy and his great Hulu team.”
FX is set to produce a total of four new series in the arrangement – Devs from Alex Garland, Mrs. America starring Cate Blanchett, A Teacher starring Kate Mara, and The Old Man starring Jeff Bridges, John Lithgow and Amy Brenneman. All four shows were originally in development for the cable network, but will now be exclusive to FX on Hulu.
This will make FX content more streamlined and easier to view than its current form. Even if you tried to catch up on FX or FXX app, you can only catch up on the five most recent episodes. Much like CW Seed does and many shows on Hulu. Have to admit, Disney knows about how to get their content out to you.
