Why is Episode 2 of 'The Dropout' not on Hulu?

As of March 24, 2022, Hulu is not authorizing its subscribers to watch Episode 2 of The Dropout. Unfortunately, Hulu seems to be experiencing a temporary error that should, hopefully, be fixed within the next few hours.

Several subscribers took to Twitter to report the issue, with many tweeting directly to Hulu and its support account in hopes of resolving the problem as quickly as possible.

One fan asked, "@Hulu_Support, is there a reason why Episode 2 of The Dropout isn’t showing up?" Another tweeted, "@Hulu, where's Episode 2 of The Dropout ? It's weird to finish Episode 1 and have autoplay go to Episode 3."

A third commented, "@Hulu, why is Episode 2 of The Dropout missing? I've checked on my computer, iPad app, and PS4 app. All other episodes are there, but Episode 2 is not available."

During the early hours of March 25, one Twitter user claimed that contacting Hulu would fix the issue — "They fixed it for me, it’s appearing now. Weird occurrence though," the individual stated.

Nevertheless, according to Lauren Jones on Twitter, Hulu's Help Center informed her that there is a "licensing issue with the content owner." OK, that's clearly a bogus answer because The Dropout is a Hulu original, meaning they own the rights to the series and its episodes.

Sadly, there seems to be much miscommunication, but we sincerely hope the streaming platform gets Episode 2 of The Dropout back up and running for all to binge soon!
