BBC drama “The Musketeers” is heading to Hulu, which has nabbed the exclusive U.S. SVOD rights to every episode of the British series. Under the deal, Season 3 of “The Musketeers” will premiere in the U.S. exclusively on Hulu. All three seasons will be available to stream beginning Saturday, May 14, and Hulu will be the only streaming service with rights to the third (and final) season stateside. The show previously aired on BBC America in the U.S.
“The Musketeers” is set on the streets of seventeenth century Paris, where law and order is more of an idea than a reality. In addition to being King Louis XIII’s personal bodyguards, Athos (Tom Burke), Aramis (Santiago Cabrera) and Porthos (Howard Charles), joined by D’Artagnan (Luke Pasqualino), stand resolutely for social justice, honor, valor, love — and for the thrill of it.
The series was created by Adrian Hodges, with Simon Allen and Simon Ashford executive producing Season 3. Jessica Pope also serves as executive producer. “Doctor Who” star Peter Capaldi, Maimie McCoy, Tamla Kari and Hugo Speer also star in the series, with Rupert Everett and Matthew McNulty joining the cast for the third season of the drama.
“The Musketeers” hails from BBC Drama Production Salford for BBC One and is co-produced by BBC Worldwide.
