Hulu: 19 Kids & Counting pulled after discussions with TLC
On Thursday, Hulu pulled all episodes of 19 Kids & Counting from its streaming platform. “It expired from our service,” a Hulu rep told EW.
Speaking to CNN’s Brian Stelter, Hulu chief executive Mike Hopkins explained that the decision to remove the episodes was made with TLC, the network that airs 19 Kids & Counting.
“We’re partners. We license the show from them. And of course, as you know, they took it off of their platforms, so we did the same,” Hopkins said.
Last week, after Josh Duggar admitted to “wrongdoing” following allegations that he sexually molested five girls as a teenager, TLC removed 19 Kids & Counting from its schedule.
“TLC has pulled all episodes of 19 Kids and Counting currently from the air,” read a statement from the network. “We are deeply saddened and troubled by this heartbreaking situation, and our thoughts and prayers are with the family and victims at this difficult time.”
As of now, 19 Kids & Counting has not been canceled by TLC.
