Our household has been actively exploring various streaming services lately, but one platform that has truly captured our attention is Hulu. Despite having several favorite TV shows on other platforms such as Barry, The Last of Us, Ted Lasso, and Party Down, we find ourselves consistently gravitating towards Hulu to indulge in binge-watching sessions of Bob’s Burgers and Futurama. It seems that we are not alone in our preference, as Hulu is now making a strategic move to dive deeper into the world of animated content by launching Animayhem, a dedicated hub for adult animation and anime enthusiasts.
Hulu’s executive VP of marketing and publicity, Barrie Gruner, stated in an interview with Variety that the creation of Animayhem was a natural progression for the platform, given its dominance in adult animation and anime among major streaming services. According to Hulu, shows like Family Guy, American Dad, King of the Hill, Futurama, and Bob’s Burgers consistently rank as the most-watched content on their platform. Adult animation has already accumulated over one billion streaming hours, while anime has reached 288 million hours in the first half of the year. Personally, I may be accountable for a couple of hundred hours myself.
Currently, Hulu boasts an extensive library of 46 adult animated series, 272 anime series, and 17 anime movies, totaling over 20,000 episodes of animated TV available for streaming. Clearly, Hulu recognizes the significance of highlighting this aspect of their service.
The launch of the Animayhem hub coincides with the exciting return of Futurama for its eleventh season. After being canceled by Fox in 2003 and subsequently revived for two more seasons on Comedy Central from 2010-2013, Futurama is making a comeback on Hulu. Season 11, which debuts on July 24, will offer new episodes streaming on a weekly basis.
