Netflix users will lose streaming access to Tina Fey’s 30 Rock at the end of the month, but folks who subscribe to Hulu can start looking forward to bingeing on it.
30 Rock heads to Hulu Oct. 1, when the streaming service will begin offering the series in its entirety. The addition of Fey’s beloved series comes as part of a deal between Hulu and NBC, which originally aired the show. This means Liz Lemon — 30 Rock‘s hero — is returning to Kabletown: Comcast owns 30 percent of Hulu through NBCUniversal.
Premiering in 2006, 30 Rock ran for more than 130 episodes across seven seasons. Throughout that time, the show took home 16 Emmy Awards, and was nominated more than 100 times. It became something of a cultural phenomenon, with the Guardian calling 30 Rock “the best show on television” as early as 2008.
It is one of several additions Hulu is making to its platform. The NBC deal also gives Hulu streaming rights to the entire Parenthood series (another show that originally aired on NBC and streamed on Netflix), the initial season of Paul Reiser’s There’s Johnny, the U.S. streaming premiere of Made in Chelsea, and several seasons of Syfy’s Face Off.
News of this most recent NBC agreement comes days after an announcement from Hulu that it would begin streaming Will & Grace before the show’s reboot airs on the network Thursday (read Ellen Gray’s review of the new Will & Grace here). Hulu has been making waves as of late: Its adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale became the first streaming drama to win an Emmy for outstanding drama and brought Elisabeth Moss her first statuette.
