There's only one place you can catch up on the season's hottest new drama.

In a press release issued Thursday, Hulu announced a deal with Twentieth Century Fox Distribution for exclusive on-demand rights to the Fox series "Empire." The first season, which came to a close on Wednesday, is currently available for subscribers to stream. Future episodes will become available to those with Hulu's premium subscription service on the day after Fox's initial broadcast.

Created by Lee Daniels and Danny Strong, "Empire" debuted to stunning success, becoming the most-watched drama in five years. The two-hour finale set up even more intrigue for Season 2, so we'd suggest settling down with some Hulu and catching up before it returns.
