Hulu and Twentieth Century Fox have just signed a deal that will bring a boatload of FX content to the streaming platform.

The deal is multi-faceted, giving Hulu exclusive rights to current FX shows, future seasons of those current shows, as well as the SVOD rights to future FX Productions content.

Here's all the FX content coming to Hulu over the next year or so:

A few titles from FX and FXX that will be available to stream exclusively on Hulu include Tyrant, The Strain, Married and You’re the Worst – all of which debuted their first seasons this year and have garnered buzz from critics and fans alike. The first seasons will be available for Hulu subscribers to stream in advance of their second season premieres in 2015, and all subsequent seasons will be available to watch on Hulu after they air.

Additionally, you can look forward to streaming future comedy, drama and event series from FX Productions exclusively on Hulu. Titles that will be exclusive to Hulu subscribers after their first seasons include:

Man Seeking Woman ­– a comedy series starring Jay Baruchel premiering January 14, 2015 on FXX
The Comedians – a comedy series starring Billy Crystal and Josh Gad that is set to premiere on FX in 2015
Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll – a new FX drama series starring Denis Leary and John Corbett
Taboo – a period drama series from award-winning Executive Producer Ridley Scott that will star Tom Hardy and will premiere on FX
Baskets – a highly anticipated comedy series starring Zach Galifianakis produced by Louis C.K. and Galifianakis that will debut in 2016

In addition to FX and FXX Networks’ upcoming original series, Hulu is also now the exclusive streaming home to FOX’s upcoming event series Wayward Pines. The series hails from the talented M. Night Shyamalan and will star big names like Matt Dillon, Terrence Howard and Melissa Leo. It will make its network debut on FOX on May 14, 2015 and Hulu will be the exclusive subscription streaming destination to watch new episodes the day after they air.

“FX Productions shares the same commitment to creating and distributing distinctive, high quality programming that we do here at Hulu. We are thrilled to begin this partnership, which will add a wide variety of popular series, and fresh, yet-to-air series to our ever expanding roster of great content,” said Craig Erwich, Senior Vice President, Head of Content Hulu.

Earlier this week, Hulu announced that it had acquired the SVOD rights to Resurrection, Mistresses, and Devious Maids through a licensing agreement with Disney-ABC Television.
