Hulu Gets All Past Seasons of ‘American Dad,’ ‘Futurama,’ ‘Bob’s Burgers,’ ‘Cleveland Show’

Hulu is stocking up on animated sitcoms under an expanded pact with 20th Century Fox.

The streaming service, under the new agreement with Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution, is now the exclusive subscription VOD home to the full run of “Bob’s Burgers” and “The Cleveland Show.” In addition, in the next few weeks, Hulu will add the complete library of Matt Groening’s “Futurama” and all past seasons of “American Dad,” created by Seth MacFarlane, Mike Barker and Mike Weitzman.

The new series join Hulu’s exclusive lineup of ‘toon sitcoms, including “South Park,” “Rick & Morty,” “The Boondocks,” “Aqua Teen Hunger Force,” “Robot Chicken,” “Adventure Time,” “Squidbillies” and “Venture Bros.” Hulu also offers episodes of hit series like “Family Guy,” “Archer” and “The Simpsons.”

“Since our inception, one of the things that has consistently remained true is that Hulu viewers love animation. That’s why we are incredibly proud to offer even more beloved animated comedies through this new deal,” said Lisa Holme, Hulu’s VP of content acquisition.

The new deal follows other Hulu deals with Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution that give the streamer exclusive subscription VOD rights to “This Is Us,” as well as “Fresh Off the Boat,” “Empire,” “The Last Man on Earth,” and “Homeland,” among others.
