'Homeland' Heads to Hulu in Streaming TV Deal
Homeland is making a home for itself at Hulu.
The streamer has nabbed exclusive off-network rights to Homeland in a deal with Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution that will make four seasons of the Showtime drama available to subscribers.
The first four seasons of the show are now available on Hulu to people who pay for either the limited advertising subscription or ad-free subscription. The Claire Danes starrer wrapped its fifth season in December and will return to Showtime for a sixth season in 2017.
"On the heels of another critically acclaimed season and multiple Emmy nominations, Homeland is the perfect addition to Hulu's growing library of premium exclusive programming," said Hulu head of content Craig Erwich. "This series has drawn in audiences for years on Showtime, and we cannot wait to give even more viewers the chance to watch and discover it on Hulu."
Showtime currently offers all five seasons of Homeland to subscribers of its standalone streaming service, which also can be added to a Hulu subscription for an additional cost of $8.99 a month.
"Both incredibly gripping and addictive, Homeland is television at its very best," said Gina Brogi, executive vp worldwide pay TV and SVOD at Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution. "This series is ripe for the binging and we're exciting for Hulu's fan base to experience the adrenaline rush that Homeland offers season after season."
Homeland joins a library of exclusive licensed content available at Hulu that includes Roots, Fargo and South Park.
