Ryan Murphy is about to take over Hulu.
In an announcement from the streamer's president Joe Earley made earlier today, it was revealed that Hulu is now officially going to be the streaming home of all past and future seasons of some the out Emmy-winning producer and director's most beloved television series: Pose, American Horror Story, and American Crime Story. And it's all happening sooner than you think.
Starting March 7, all three seasons of Pose, all 10 seasons of American Horror Story, and all three seasons of American Crime Story will be available to stream on Hulu, making for a grand total of 168 episodes to hit the popular streaming service.
"We are thrilled that these captivating and trailblazing series from Ryan Murphy have come to Hulu," Earley said in his statement. "American Crime Story, American Horror Story, and Pose all resonate deeply with audiences in their own ways, and continue to set the standard for riveting, character-driven, inclusive storytelling. Alongside our partners at FX and 20th Television, we are proud to offer these prestigious and thought-provoking titles to our subscribers."
The impact of Murphy's shows has been vital and felt by many throughout the years, especially from viewers within the LGBTQ+ community. His multiple series have helped push queer representation on television to where it is now, so much so that GLAAD's annual 2020-2021 TV report found that nearly one in five LGBTQ+ characters on TV appear on a series that comes from either Murphy, Shonda Rhimes, Greg Berlanti, or Lena Waithe.
"I started off in this business exactly 25 years ago," Murphy said about his work last year in a statement on Instagram at the time of the report's release. "At that time in the mid-90s I was told I couldn’t even have an LGBTQ+ character represented in my work. Too controversial, it might turn off advertisers, etc. I persisted and fought and had the support of so many allies and wow have things changed. In the past year alone, my company has not only created content that has shined a spotlight on hundreds of LGBTQ+ characters, but we have employed hundreds of out LGBTQ+ actors; who as little as five years ago would probably have been advised that being authentically who they were meant no more jobs (and thus no rent or food or health insurance)."
Pose, AHS, and ACS are also some of Murphy's most critically-acclaimed works as well, as they have collectively earned 165 Emmy nominations and 42 Emmy wins.
You know where you'll find us on March 7: in front of our TV screens!
