Every generation should get to experience the joy of TGIF, and soon they can.
Hulu announced Thursday that it is has locked down streaming rights to the late '90s family favorites that made up the iconic TGIF lineup. That means that starting Sept. 29, subscribers will be able to stream "Full House," "Family Matters," "Step by Step," "Perfect Strangers," and "Hangin' with Mr. Cooper" on the service. They won't even have to wait until Fridays.
The lineup was a staple for '90s kids, and with all of the nostalgia going around, it's no wonder the streamer wants to offer series that were a part of TGIF. The move should make for some very happy millennials.
"These shows are more than just beloved hits, they were part of a cultural tradition to tune in every Friday night," Craig Erwich, Hulu's senior vice president of content, said in a statement. "Now, it can be Friday any day of the week on Hulu."
With the deal ironed out, the streaming service is currently trying to make the phrase "TGI-Hulu" happen, which may be an even bigger challenge; we don't see TGIF going anywhere.
