Hulu’s new true crime series, The Act, is wildly popular. Unlike many other streaming shows, all of the episodes of the show aren’t available for a binge watch. Fans of the show have to catch new episodes every week, then wait with bated breath for the next installment — much like traditional TV shows. So, when do new episodes of the series that tells the story of Gypsy Rose Blanchard and the murder of her mother, Dee Dee Blanchard, air? We’ve got all the info you need to know.

When Does The Act Air New Episodes?

Hulu drops a new episode of The Act every week on Wednesday. As great as it can be to watch a bunch of episodes on services like Hulu and Netflix in a row, we think it’s also kind of fun to have to anticipate each new installment. Even though Gypsy’s story really happened, seeing it unfold this way keeps things interesting for fans.

Generally, new episodes of Hulu originals are supposed to show up on the platform at 3:00 a.m. Eastern time. Sometimes there’s a slight delay, but if you check around midnight on the West Coast, you should be good.

When Does the Next Episode of The Act Air?

The fifth episode of The Act will drop on the platform on Wednesday, April 10. Hulu’s official synopsis of episode 5 reads, “Gypsy and Nick scheme to meet in person and hope to win Dee Dee’s approval, but when their plan goes disastrously wrong, they’ll be pushed to make an extreme choice in order to be together.” Things are really starting to heat up on the show, so if you’ve been meaning to watch it and need to catch up, now is the time to do it!

How Many More Episodes of The Act Are There?

The Act, starring Patricia Arquette, Joey King, Calum Worthy, and more is just one season long so far. That season features only eight episodes, so there are currently just three left to air. Have you checked out The Act on Hulu yet? If you’ve got a Hulu account, what are you waiting for?
