Also, upcoming shows such Alex Garland’s (Dredd, Ex Machina, ) Devs starring Nick Offerman, Cate Blanchett’s Mrs. America, Kate Mara’s A Teacher, and the Jeff Bridges spy-thriller The Old Man have moved from FX to Hulu.

Also, Hulu will now be the exclusive streaming home for more than 40 past and current FX series, and new episodes of most FX shows will be available to stream on Hulu immediately after they air. The partnership, dubbed “FX on Hulu,” will debut in March 2020.
