Hulu Streaming Un-Aired Episodes of ABC’s Canceled ‘Wicked City’

Wicked City” was yanked off the air after just three episodes this fall, but un-aired episodes of the canceled ABC show are now available on Hulu.

The first three episodes were already available on the streaming service, and on Wednesday, Hulu put up more “Wicked City,” now totaling up to seven. According to one of the show’s producers, the eighth and final episode will become available, as well.

Exec producer Laurie Zaks wrote “almost done” on Twitter, suggesting that the entire eight-episode season will soon be in Hulu’s library. When the show was axed, the network stated that the last episode would wrap before production on the show closed, making it very possible that the series could become available for viewers on another platform.

Back in November when “Wicked City” was pulled from ABC’s schedule, Zaks also took to Twitter to tell viewers that all eight episodes had been shot and the story has a “great ending” suitable for streaming. “The story is complete,” she wrote.

Revolving around a serial killer, played by Ed Westwick, the 1980’s Sunset Strip-set drama received negative reviews from the get-go with the show’s violence on women cited as a major point of offense. Along with the “Gossip Girl” alum, “Parenthood’s” Erika Christensen and Jeremy Sisto starred in the ensembler. Steven Baigelman created the show and Amy B. Harris was showrunner.

Hailing from ABC Studios, “Wicked City” debuted Oct. 27 and fell to a 0.4 rating in adults 18-49 and 1.7 million viewers by the time the third episode aired.
