ABC’s romantic comedy series Selfie, starring John Cho and Karen Gillan, has found a new home on Hulu.
The video streaming site announced Monday that it has agreed to pick up Selfie after ABC canceled the Warner Bros. show earlier this month. Hulu will release the the six unaired episodes on Hulu and Hulu Plus on a weekly basis starting Tuesday, the series creator Emily Kapnek announced on Twitter. The episodes will also be available on ABC.com.

ABC scrapped Selfie from its Tuesday night lineup after the series opened with an underwhelming 5.3 million viewers and a 1.6 ratings among adults aged between 18 and 49, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Manhattan Love Story was also taken out of ABC’s lineup for the same reason.
This is not the first time Hulu has adopted an axed ABC Comedy. Last year, the streamer hosted the remaining episodes of Apartment 23 on its site after ABC canceled the show due to poor ratings.
