Two FX original series are making the jump to streaming, exclusively. Both American Horror Stories and Y: The Last Man will now debut via FX on Hulu, Variety reports.
Hulu announced the news this morning as part of its NewFronts presentation, sharing that the upcoming shows will be joining a growing collection of FX series on the streaming platform. FX on Hulu, the network’s streaming hub, is also home to Mrs. America and Devs, which both made the Hulu switch after initial plans for the FX network premieres.
American Horror Stories is a spinoff of Ryan Murphy‘s American Horror Story, the longest-running show in FX history. Unlike the original series, the new show will feature a different horror story each episode. Actors from the original AHS The universe is reportedly returning for American Horror Stories.
Y: The Last Man is based on a graphic novel series, which was originally acquired by New Line for a film adaptation. When the project never came through, FX began working on a series and has been developing the upcoming show for three years now. Most recently, Ben Schnetzer was cast in the lead role.
After the Disney-21st Century Fox merger last year, Disney became the largest stakeholder in Hulu, and also acquired FX. The company launched FX on Hulu in March as part of its plan to push digital content, and Hulu reports that more than half of its subscribers are engaged with the hub, according to the. Hollywood Reporter. FX on Hulu has over 1,600 episodes from the network’s originals library, including Sons of Anarchy and Wilfred.
Along with the American Horror Stories and Y: The Last Man news, Hulu also announced today that Season 4 of their popular original series The Handmaid’s Tale would not premiere this fall as planned. Instead, the series has been pushed to debut in 2021 (no exact date was revealed) due to coronavirus-related production shutdowns.
