Hulu takes over Powerpuff Girls in an exclusive streaming deal


Hulu has inked a new agreement with Cartoon Network that grants the US streaming service exclusive VOD rights to The Powerpuff Girls. All episodes and titles from the series will stream exclusively on Hulu starting in 2017.

The reimagined The Powerpuff Girls series premiered in April to more than 81 million viewers worldwide, marking Cartoon Network’s largest ever international event. The series has since been renewed for a second season.

Season one will be available to stream on Hulu in early 2017, and subsequent seasons will launch on the streaming service after they air on Cartoon Network.

To kick off the deal, Hulu Kids launched a collection of The Powerpuff Girls specials and fan-favorite episodes from the original series yesterday in a special package entitled Best Friends Forever.

Hulu also added Chowder, another Cartoon Network original series, which arrives on the digital platform in early 2017.
