HULU ACQUIRES EXCLUSIVE STREAMING RIGHTS TO HIT WARNER BROS. ANIMATION/CARTOON NETWORK SERIES TEEN TITANS GO!, BASED ON DC CHARACTERS
August 31, 2017
All Past Episodes of Top Animated Series for Kids and Families Will Become Available to Stream Friday, September 1st on Hulu
SANTA MONICA, CA [AUGUST 31, 2017] – Just in time for Labor Day weekend, Hulu has announced a new deal with Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution which will make Hulu the exclusive subscription streaming video on-demand home to Warner Bros. Animation/Cartoon Network’s hit series and one of today’s most popular series for kids and families, Teen Titans Go!, based on DC characters. Seasons one through three of the popular animated will become available to stream on Hulu beginning Friday, September 1st, and season four will become available following its run on Cartoon Network.
In addition to reinforcing Hulu’s commitment to family programming, the deal makes Hulu the streaming home to the largest collection of programming from Cartoon Network. Teen Titans Go! joins an offering of full seasons of Cartoon Network favorites now streaming exclusively on Hulu including Adventure Time, The Amazing World of Gumball, Steven Universe, The Powerpuff Girls, Regular Show and more.
Inspired by the original hit series Teen Titans from Warner Bros. Animation that ran for five seasons, the more comedic Teen Titans Go! features the principal voice cast from the original series and has become a hit series for Cartoon Network. The show consistently ranks as the #1 program for Kids on the network when new episodes air on Fridays.
In Teen Titans Go!, the comedic mayhem of the animated series is punctuated by pranks and the occasional need to save the world. With epic staring contests to decide who does the laundry, a series of quests and battles to construct the perfect sandwich or fighting crime in Jump City, one thing is for sure — the Titans are always ready for an adventure, inside Titans Tower and out.
Teen Titans Go! is produced by Warner Bros. Animation, Sam Register (MAD, Teen Titans, Batman: The Brave and the Bold) serves as executive producer, with Michael Jelenic (ThunderCats), Aaron Horvath (MAD) and Pete Michail (Space Racers) as producers.
The new deal follows a string of agreements between Hulu and Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution. Earlier this year, the two struck an agreement that will bring America’s favorite lineup of sitcoms from the 1990s – including Full House, Family Matters, Step by Step, Perfect Strangers and Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper – exclusively to Hulu this fall. Hulu is also the streaming home to a collection of hundreds of episodes of favorites from the Warner Bros. Television, including Blindspot, Queen Sugar, Lucifer, Smallville, The OC and more.
Hulu is a leading premium streaming service that offers instant access to live and on demand channels, original series and films, and a premium library of TV and movies to millions of subscribers in the U.S. Since its launch in 2008, Hulu has consistently been at the forefront of entertainment and technology.

In 2017, Hulu added live news, entertainment and sports from 21st Century Fox, The Walt Disney Company, NBCUniversal, CBS Corporation, Turner Networks, A+E Networks and Scripps Networks Interactive to its offering – making it the only TV service that brings together live, on-demand, originals, and library content all in one place, across living room and mobile devices.
