The streamer is bringing back both shows following their launches in the final quarter of 2019.
Hulu called Dollface was one of its “best performing new binge series for subscriber engagement” amongst Hulu Originals in 2019. The comedy series, which launched in November, follows Jules (Kat Dennings), a young vibrant woman who is dealing with the aftermath of being dumped by her boyfriend. With a broken heart, Jules battles her own imagination in order to literally and metaphorically re-enter the world of women, with friendships she left behind and the new battle of dating post breakup.
