The latest procedural drama series demanding the attention of viewers is none other than ABC's Will Trent. Will Trent is based on a series of Karin Slaughter novels highlighting Will Trent (Ramón Rodríguez), a special agent working at the Georgia Bureau of Investigations.
The series showcases Will’s personal and professional life — including his troubled childhood with being abandoned at birth and placed in Atlanta’s foster care system— further giving insight as to why he shines as an agent when solving crime.
Since Will Trent has already premiered on ABC, folks are wondering when the show will make air on Hulu. Luckily, it’s closer than you think.
Here’s everything that we know.
‘Will Trent’s pilot episode has already hit Hulu.
Yes, you read that correctly! Will Trent’s Season 1, Episode 1 is currently available to stream on Hulu.
Unlike other streaming platforms, Hulu usually wastes no time making episodes readily available for subscribers. Hulu has a deal with ABC that allows them to stream shows a day after their original premiere on the network.

How many episodes are in Season 1 of ‘Will Trent?’
At this time, the episode count for Will Trent has yet to be confirmed. However, the show’s IMDB page reveals that fans can expect at least seven episodes in Season 1.
Will there be a Season 2 of ‘Will Trent?’
Unfortunately, Will Trent has not been renewed for Season 2 yet. However, fans should not be too worried about the future of the procedural drama.
For starters, we’re currently at the beginning of Season 1 with only one episode released thus far. It usually takes the network a little time to analyze viewership and consult with producers and showrunners before deciding to greenlight a new season.

At this point, viewers will just have to sit tight and play the waiting game until the network makes an announcement.
Catch new episodes of Will Trent Tuesdays at 10 p.m. EST on ABC and Wednesdays on Hulu.
