Ever since then, Hulu has served as the primary landing spot for Disney-owned content that has more of an adult bent, whereas Disney+ has been the media giant’s family-friendly streamer.

This did, however, recently shift somewhat when Netflix’s gritty Marvel series — Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, The Punisher, and The Defenderswere sent straight to Disney+ instead of Hulu.

Nonetheless, Hulu remains Disney’s platform for grown-up sitcoms like Hilary Duff’s How I Met Your Father and adult animation, including the upcoming Futurama revival.

As of today, April 30, 2022, though, the Hulu content library will be getting a bit smaller. It has been confirmed that 46 movie titles will no longer be available on the streamer beginning on May 1, 2022.
