“I Love it Dan !!!” one fan replied on Twitter. Another fan agreed, writing, “Hulu PLEASE for the love of God add @ReelzChannel.”

One fan thought that Abrams’ direct Twitter engagement with the platform served as the show’s best shot at landing on Hulu. “If this doesn’t work ..nothing will,” they wrote.

“Same with YouTube TV,” another replied. Several users requested for the show to be placed on YouTube TV. One tweet asking for the show to be placed on that platform garnered sixty favorites.

“YES!!!! I hate to have to switch providers again!” another fan chimed in.
