The new season of the brilliant, biting UK political comedy "The Thick of It" kicks off on BBC tonight and here in the US on Hulu tomorrow, Sunday, September 9th. This fourth season is Hulu's first international co-production (hence what's essentially a day-and-date premiere) and marks the return of the series after a three-year hiatus, during which time creator Armando Iannucci headed to HBO to make the Julia Louis-Dreyfus show "Veep."

The Thick of It Season 4

The new season of the brilliant, biting UK political comedy "The Thick of It" kicks off on BBC tonight and here in the US on Hulu tomorrow, Sunday, September 9th. This fourth season is Hulu's first international co-production (hence what's essentially a day-and-date premiere) and marks the return of the series after a three-year hiatus, during which time creator Armando Iannucci headed to HBO to make the Julia Louis-Dreyfus show "Veep."

Here's Hulu's description of the upcoming seven-episode arc:

Government embarrassment, ministerial cock-up, coalition rows, backroom deals, policy U-turns, spin doctoring, political back-stabbing, wild media speculation, and more time spent with one's family. It can only be the eagerly-anticipated return of Armando Iannucci's sharp political satire "The Thick of It". Rebecca Front and Peter Capaldi reprise their BAFTA-winning roles as Nicola Murray and Malcolm Tucker, now consigned to the opposition benches, but still desperate for power. Roger Allam returns as Peter Mannion, the new Secretary of State for Social Affairs, supported by his team of special advisors and thwarted by his new coalition partners.

Hulu has the first three seasons of "The Thick of It" up (and unbleeped!) online here. Check out a clip from the first episode of season four below:
