Hulu revisits ABC’s classic TGIF lineup


Remember Family Matters? Perfect Strangers? Step by Step? Full House? Hangin’ With Mr. Cooper? Hulu is revisiting ABC’s iconic TGIF lineup with acquisitions of five Warner Bros.-produced shows.

Netflix has seen success with its own ’90s reboot, Fuller House, but the acquisition of a whole block of nostalgic content is a pivot for Hulu. According to Variety, Netflix had its eye on the Full House catalog, but Hulu’s idea for the TGIF programming proved more attractive to Warner Bros. Now a whole new generation will get to experience the unconventional relationship between Larry Appleton and Balki Bartokomous. No word on Mr. Belvedere or Dinosaurs.

Hulu also recently debuted The Golden Girls and picked up Futurama, and is aiming to get The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

The five shows will debut on Sept. 29.

Update 3:38pm CT, Sept. 29Hulu also returns Boy Meets World, Home Improvement, and Dinosaurs on Sept. 29.
