Hulu snags exclusive streaming rights to all 'South Park' seasons

By Kyle Johnson,

Hulu announced on Saturday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour that all 17 seasons of South Park will be available exclusively on the streaming service.

Ahead of the Sept. 24 premiere of the 18th season, Hulu will make every single episode free for all, but after that date, you'll need to have a Hulu Plus subscription, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

New episodes of the upcoming season will be available the day after it airs, and will be watchable even without Hulu Plus.

The Los Angeles Times notes that the South Park website, which currently hosts all 17 seasons, will continue to do so until the 18th season premiere and then move to a revolving model, where select free episodes will be available for viewing and will be constantly swapped out.

"South Park has revolutionized TV and pushed boundaries with unparalleled topicality and daring humor," Craig Erwich, Hulu content head, said. "South Park has been one of the top ten most popular shows of all time on the platform. We're thrilled to offer the series to fans in its entirety."

The Comedy Central cartoon's creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker made a surprised appearance at the press tour and noted that working with Hulu was "a natural partnership." Parker joked that South Park Studios would now actually work thanks to Hulu.
