Hulu has announced that they’ve acquired the streaming rights to a number of shows produced by ABC Studios.
In terms of current shows, the streamer has nabbed every past episode to Kiefer Sutherland political drama Designated Survivor, now in its second season on ABC, and demon hunter drama Shadowhunters, which has every episode available ahead of its third season premiere next April.
Hulu adds to its catalog of shows through Revenge, which will have all four seasons available December 7th; Shonda Rhimes drama The Catch; acclaimed comic drama Agent Carter, which is now available; ’90s comedy Blossom, which is now available; Bunheads, which will have every episode available December 14th; Courteney Cox comedy Cougar Town, which will debut on the service in 2018; and TNT procedural Perception, which will debut on the service in 2018.
Hulu has spent the past few months really bulking up their catalog of shows, a sharp contrast to Netflix’s strategy of culling its library in order to finance its originals. They’ve since acquired the rights to the likes of Boy Meets World, Dinosaurs, 30 Rock, Parenthood, and Will & Grace, as well as a slew of TGIF comedies. This comes as the streamer has significant momentum behind its scripted originals following the Emmy wins for The Handmaid’s Tale and the debuts of sci-fi comedy Future Man and Marvel’s Runaways.
