Hulu is bringing back one of its popular original series. The streaming video-on-demand service, which now boasts an ad-free subscription option, has ordered a fourth season of its teen drama series East Los High.
Created by Carlos Portugal and Kathleen Bedoya, East Los High follows the story of several Latino high school students in inner-city East Los Angeles. The series, which boasts an all-Latino cast, will boast twelve new episodes for its fourth season. East Los High is produced by the non-profit Population Media Center in conjunction Prajna Productions, Into Action Films, and The Alchemists. Katie Elmore Mota and Mauricio Mota serve as executive producers alongside Portugal and Bedoya, while Troy Combs and Carlos Reza co-executive produce.

Hulu originally announced East Los High at its Newfronts presentation back in April 2013. The streaming platform’s high school drama did so well the series was renewed for a second season, which debuted on July 9, 2014. Only three days after that season’s release, Hulu picked up a third, claiming the series was one of its top ten most-watched originals in the summer of 2013. Now, the series can also claim it was Hulu’s first fully-original series renewed for a fourth season (the streaming platform ordered a fourth season of The Mindy Project back in May 2015, but that show previously aired on Fox for three years before moving to Hulu).
No release date has been announced for season four of East Los High as of yet.
