Hulu Cancels ‘Difficult People’ After Three Seasons

Fans of Hulu’s Difficult People received some well…difficult news yesterday as the streaming service decided to pull the plug on the series after just three seasons.

The Hulu original series starred Billy Eichner and Julie Klausner as “fictionalized versions of themselves, who are best friends and aspiring comedians living in New York City.” It quickly became a popular favorite on the site due to its brilliant performances from Eichner and Klausner and its smart use of guest stars alongside relevant stories and great humor.

“I feel great about the show that I got to make,” said Julie Klausner who also created and wrote the show to EW. “I feel like the luckiest girl in the world. There are amazing shows that have ended after three seasons, like Strangers with CandyArrested Development — I don’t mean to self-aggrandize myself by comparing myself to those great shows — but I’m really proud of the work we did and the series as a whole.”

Billy Eichner did what he does best and took to Twitter to announce the news and of course, sprinkle some humor on the situation.

The news came as quite the shock to fans as the show had been critically-acclaimed throughout its 28-episode run, with the three seasons averaging a 92 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

The site is most likely trimming their catalog to make room for new original series after the success of their hour-long drama The Handmaid’s Tale at the 2017 Primetime Emmy Awards. However, you will still be able to stream seasons 1-3 on Hulu. What do you think about the cancellation news?

Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn't be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own "Pepperwood Chronicles'.
