Rejoice, Lost Is Headed to Hulu!

Passionate fandoms, complex mythologies, and truncated opening titles might all seem de rigueur for television today, but it's easy to forget how much Lost helped to make these concepts standard practice for genre TV shows. Hulu has just announced that the hit mid-aughts television series is joining their streaming library. As such, fans were disappointed to hear it was leaving Netflix with the start of the new year. The upcoming Disney-branded streaming service, due for launch in 2019, will focus on Disney film brands including "Star Wars", Marvel and Pixar, while Hulu will be a more grown-up destination that could receive content Disney might acquire from Fox.

After it's departure from Netflix, Lost is telling fans "see ya in another life" on Hulu. After ABC's drama "Lost" departed Netflix recently, all six seasons of the show are now streaming in full on Hulu. It joins a list of popular shows recently added to Hulu such as ABC's Designated Survivor, the original "TGIF" lineup, The Golden Girls, black-ish and others.

Though, the transferring of shows to Hulu won't drastically hurt Netflix - the streamer has already cut its content catalogue in half since 2012 - it will increase the strength of Hulu.

Once again, Netflix's loss is Hulu's gain. Additionally, previous year after inking a deal with 20th Century Fox, Hulu saw 3000 episodes of content make its way to the platform including "How I Met Your Mother", "Burn Notice", "Bones" and "Glee". It's been assumed that Disney would build their own digital service, but the idea of them simply rebranding Hulu instead is a real possibility. In fact, it's only watchable there - it's a Netflix original.
