We knew this was coming, as last fall, FX announced that Hulu would become its official streaming home. For the most part, new episodes will air on their respective FX channels and land on Hulu the next day.
FX also has a number of Hulu-exclusive series in the works. The first is an eight-episode run of Devs from Alex Garland. It’s scheduled to debut on March 5th and stars Sonoya Mizuno, Nick Offerman, Jin Ha and Allison Pill. Mrs. America, starring Cate Blanchett, will debut this spring. A Teacher, starring Kate Mara, is scheduled for this summer, and The Old Man with Jeff Bridges and John Lithgow is planned for the fall.
This is part of Hulu’s attempt to improve its original content and better compete with Netflix and Amazon. “FX is a producer of high quality content and will become a key content driver for Hulu,” Disney CEO Bob Iger told reporters during the company’s Q4 earnings call last fall.
