Netflix isn’t the only streaming service developing Marvel shows. Hulu has announced a new expanded deal with Marvel which will see the streaming service create two new shows based on characters from the latter’s superhero repertoire. The Ghost Rider and Helstrom series will both debut next year, according to Hulu.
The two new shows will join other Marvel series on the platform which includes Runaways as well as some animated shows that are due to arrive in the not too distant future.
Hulu has also confirmed recent reports about a new series on Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes. The company confirmed that it is indeed developing the limited series and that Saturday Night Live’s Kate McKinnon will star as Holmes in the series titled The Dropout.
The streaming service has confirmed that it now has 28 million total subscribers in the United States of which 26.8 million pay for its premium tier. Two million of its subscribers are also on its live TV streaming package. Taking password sharing into account, Hulu estimates that it has about 58 million users on the ad-supported tier.
The company is now planning to roll out a “binge advertising experience,” which will enable “marketers to target binge viewers with a creative that is situationally relevant to their viewing behavior.”
