All six seasons of Lost are now available to stream on Hulu, which is great news for people who were bummed to learn that the twisty philosophical drama was leaving Netflix, where it has lived since its run ended in 2010, in the new year.

"Lost", as well as "The Golden Girls", the original TGIF lineup (including "Family Matters" and "Full House") and several others all left Netflix's streaming menus Thursday and landed on Hulu the same day, Deadline reported.

For fans who have looked into the eye of the island and thought that it was handsome, the departure of Lost from streaming platform Netflix was probably scarier than mysterious smoke monsters, but thankfully, passengers aboard Oceanic Air Flight 815 are heading to streaming platform Hulu, TV Guide reports. Hulu has just announced that the hit mid-aughts television series is joining their streaming library. Additionally, past year after inking a deal with 20th Century Fox, Hulu saw 3000 episodes of content make its way to the platform including "How I Met Your Mother", "Burn Notice", "Bones" and "Glee".

ABC Television is owned by Disney, which in turn owns a 30% stake in Hulu. And thank Jacob, because Hulu has made that possible. Under Disney's proposed $66.1 billion deal to acquire 21st Century Fox, Disney would become majority owner of Hulu.

As for Netflix, the migration of ABC/Disney content off its platform is nothing new. The plan is for Disney's streaming service to launch in 2019, though a specific date hasn't been set yet. Netflix, for its part, has seemed to take the news in stride and called it a natural part of its strategy to focus more on original programming.
