Hulu Picks Up ‘Please Like Me’ for New Season

Hulu will stream the fourth season of comedy series Please Like Me as part of a partnership deal with Participant Media.

The Participant-produced series, which stars comedian Josh Thomas, had previously aired on the now defunct Pivot network. The new season of the comedy will stream on Hulu early next year, according to the company.

Thomas said in a prepared statement: “Thank you Hulu for rescuing our lovely little show! I hope you Americans enjoy it as much you enjoy soda.”

Hulu holds the rights to stream the previous three seasons of the Australian comedy series.
