Gang's all here and ready to jam to some Rooney. Starting next month, you'll be able to stream The O.C. on Hulu, making this the first time the show will be available on streaming, according to Vulture (opens in new tab). (Though of course you already knew that, because you've been searching for it on Netflix forever.)

The deal comes after some *tension* between Hulu and Warner Bros., as over the past five years the studio has been chummier with Netflix and smaller, in-house streaming platforms like and CW Seed. But now, with the J.J. Abrams-produced Hulu original 11.22.63, it seems they're both making friendship bracelets and playing MASH, in Hollywood terms.

In any case, get ready for a whole lot more Seth Cohen and Ryan Atwood "Who Would You Date IRL?" conversations.
