Hulu Cancels ‘Difficult People’ After 3 Seasons

Wochit Headline News - Wednesday, 15 November 2017

After three seasons of critical acclaim and acid-tongued conversation, the Billy Eichner and Julie Klausner streaming comedy "Difficult People" has been cut by Hulu.

The end of Difficult People puts a magnifying glass on the subject of where Hulu’s going next with their original/continued programming.

Difficult People wasn’t exactly a Stranger Things level smash for Hulu, but it was one of the more recognized properties on their streaming slate and there doesn’t appear to be much in the immediate future for original Hulu comedies aside from the Seth Rogen shepherded Future Man.

As services like Amazon try to expand their viewership with things like pricey Lord of the Rings adaptations, there’s the danger of being lost in the shuffle.

Of course, Hulu’s banking on things like a Hitman TV series and the continued draw of The Handmaid’s Tale to combat that possibility..
