In yet another exclusivity deal with BBC Worldwide, Hulu has picked up the exclusive US streaming video on-demand rights to The Musketeers.
This includes the premiere of Season 3 PLUS all episodes from Seasons 1 and 2, making Hulu the one and only stateside home for the period action drama inspired by The Three Musketeers, the classic novel by French author Alexandre Dumas.

In addition to being the royal bodyguards for the King of France, the four loyal and highly-trained soldiers stand as one for social justice, honor, valor, and love… as well as for the thrill of it all.
