Great news supernatural YA fans, the new film from 20th Century Studios, Darby and the Dead finally gets a streaming date. The supernatural teen comedy about a high school student who moonlights as a spiritual messenger will stream on December 2, 2022, exclusively on Hulu!


After suffering a near-death experience as a young girl, Darby Harper (Downs) gains the ability to see dead people. As a result, she becomes introverted and shut off from her high school peers. She prefers to spend time counseling lonely spirits who have unfinished business on earth. But all that changes when Capri (Cravalho), the Queen Bee of the school’s most exclusive clique, unexpectedly dies in a freak hair straightening accident. This results in the obvious cancellation of her upcoming “Sweet 17.” Capri, however, pleads with Darby from the other side to intervene and convince Capri’s friends to proceed with the party as planned. In order to appease the wrath of the undead diva, Darby must emerge from her self-imposed exile and reinvent herself. Which along the way allows her to find new joy back in the land of the living.
