30 Rock gets a new streaming home after Netflix exit
For jilted Netflix subscribers, now would be a good time to start that free one-month trial of Hulu.
After 30 Rock fans were dismayed to learn all episodes of Liz Lemon’s hijinks would be dropped from Netflix, we now know the reason: Hulu announced on Wednesday a new deal with NBC that will see the beloved Tina Fey comedy series coming to the streaming platform in its entirety beginning Oct. 1.
That’s not all. Other properties Parenthood, There’s Johnny, Made in Chelsea, and Face Off will be making the leap to Hulu to help expand its library.
Fans of Fey’s can now breathe a little easier knowing that they’ll still have a place to watch Alec Baldwin’s Jack Donaghy chug his nightly glass of bourbon, Jane Krakowski’s Jenna Marone “drop a dookie in the green room” for attention, and Jack McBrayer’s Kenneth Parcell continue his unrequited love with Tracy Morgan’s Tracy Jordan.
30 Rock is another white whale for Hulu, which already acquired episodes of the original Will & Grace as it continues work on expanding its slate of original projects — including the Sean Penn-led The First from House of Cards creator Beau Willimon, the adaptation of horror comic Locke & Key, Marvel’s The Runaways, and more from its big-time Emmy winner The Handmaid’s Tale.
Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin, and Tracy Morgan star in the Emmy-winning comedy. You want to go to there.
