'30 Rock' Is Coming To Hulu Very Soon, So Grab Your Night Cheese & Celebrate
If you were one of many fans distressed that 30 Rock is leaving Netflix in October, wipe those tears. Grab your Snuggie and prepare to sing about night cheese, because 30 Rock is coming to Hulu soon. Not just soon, but the very day after it leaves Netflix, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Yes, as of Sunday, Oct. 1, you'll be able to have seven seasons' worth of Liz Lemon in your Hulu queue. As Variety reported, this is part of a new agreement between the streaming service and NBCUniversal Television and New Media Distribution.
On the one hand, this is a relief for fans who didn't want to miss out on the Tina Fey comedy. On the flip side, if you're a loyal Netflix devotee, this means you may have to finally take the plunge and sign up for Hulu. Or if still you're on the fence, it could be the perfect time to try out the free trial option. Regardless, plenty of fan-favorite series are heading over to Hulu and they don't show any signs of stopping soon.
Besides 30 Rock, the streaming service recently announced that Will & Grace is on Hulu for the first time ever. Plus, Atlanta (which recently earned Donald Glover an Emmy) is on there. And a bunch of T.G.I.F. favorites are also slated to make their way to the platform in the near future, including Full House, Family Matters, and Step by Step. On top of that, Parenthood is also heading to Hulu as part of the same NBC deal as 30 Rock.
When word spread that 30 Rock has been saved from the streaming graveyard, fans reacted the only way they knew how — with gratitude and Liz Lemon GIFs galore. Honestly, there's no better way to celebrate.
