Hulu Gets 'Last Man on Earth'28 Sep, 2015 By: Stephanie Prange
Hulu has acquired the exclusive subscription streaming rights to all past episodes of Fox series “The Last Man on Earth.”
The second season of Emmy-nominated series began airing Sept. 27. Hulu also has day-after-air streaming rights to the series.
“Hulu subscribers have been huge fans of ‘The Last Man on Earth’ since its premiere,” said Craig Erwich, SVP and head of content for Hulu. “Now, we want to give them the gift to watch all episodes of this creative, fun series.”
All episodes of “The Last Man on Earth” will be available to stream via a Hulu subscription with limited commercials for $7.99 per month, or with no commercials for $11.99 per month.
The deal comes on the heels of Hulu’s acquisition of the exclusive subscription streaming rights to another 20th Century Fox Television Distribution series, “Empire.” Other exclusive shows streamed on Hulu include “Brooklyn Nine Nine,” “The Mindy Project,” “The Goldbergs” and “Nashville.”
“The Last Man on Earth,” created, written by and starring Will Forte, is a comedy about the life and adventures of Phil Miller, an average guy who inadvertently became humanity’s last hope.
