According to Deadline, Hulu will be removing many shows on the streamer when the license deals expire over the coming days. There are currently no plans to renew the licensing deals, however, that could change in the future.
There will be 20 series from Disney’s 20th Television leaving Hulu, including Arrested Development, Ally McBeal, Hill Street Blues, The Practice, and The Bob Newhart Show.
Arrested Development debuted on Fox on November 2, 2003 and starred Jason Bateman (Zootopia, Game Night), Michael Cera (Juno, Superbad), Portia de Rossi (Scandal, Better Off Ted), and Will Arnett (3o Rock, BoJack Horseman).
Ally McBeal premiered on Fox on September 8, 1997 and starred Calista Flockhart (Supergirl, Brothers and Sisters), Greg Germann (Grey’s Anatomy, Firefly), and Lisa Nicole Carson (Love Jones, Eve’s Bayou).
Hill Street Blues first aired on Fox on January 15, 1981 and starred Michael Warren (Fast Break, The Hunted), Daniel J. Travanti (One Small Hitch, Adam), and Bruce Weitz (A Deadly Silence, Death of a Centerfold).
The Practice premiered on Fox on March 4, 1997 and starred Dylan McDermott (American Horror Story, Steel Magnolias), Lara Flynn Boyle (Twin Peaks, Wayne’s World), and Kelli Williams (Ties That Bind, Lie to Me).
The Bob Newhart Show debuted on Fox on September 16, 1972 and featured Bob Newhart (Elf, The Big Bang Theory), Bill Daily (I Dream of Jeannie, Alf), and Suzanne Pleshette (Rome Adventure, The Birds).
A number of series from Paramount and Fox will also be leaving Hulu. Fox shows leaving include The Masked Singer, Master Chef Junior, and Name That Tune. Paramount shows being removed include The Hills, 7th Heaven, and The Real World. A few series from NBC News and Nat Geo will also be removed.
Deadline reports that sources claim the full WWE hub will expire on September 25, as well as a number of ABC News properties, however, this has not been confirmed.
This comes after a large content removal on Hulu and Disney+ in the Spring in order to cut costs and prepare to combine. The two services plan to merge into one app by the end of the year.
