WSJ media and entertainment reporter Joe Flint discusses the carefree spending of Netflix as the streaming service faces challenges and CNN+'s short-lived streaming network.
"Schitt’s Creek" has a new home.
After streaming on Netflix, all six seasons of the Emmy-winning comedy series will shift to Hulu Oct. 3, after the Disney-backed streamer announced it had taken over rights to the popular show.
While financial terms of the deal were not made available, Hulu said in a press release that "Schitt’s Creek joins Hulu’s extensive library of hit comedies," which the entity said includes the likes of "Abbott Elementary" and "Only Murders in the Building," which stars Selena Gomez, Steve Martin and Martin Short.
