The Pilot For The Sadly-Defunct Delirium Series Is About To Be Online For Your Viewing Pleasure

YA fans, rejoice!

Emma Roberts‘ new show Delirium may not have gotten picked up to series (tragically), but fans of the source novels will have at least one thing to keep them going: on June 20, Hulu is going to make the Delirium pilot available for streaming for a limited time.

The Delirium show was to be based on an excellent YA book series of the same name by Lauren Oliver, which I highly recommend you pick up. Sure, the premise might sound a little silly – in a dystopian future where Big Government has developed a cure for love, one girl has to fight back to save society before everyone becomes feeling-less robots. But, while the first book might succumb to some of the typical YA-dystropias, books two and three see the female protagonist morph into a layered, complex, rebel bad-ass. And it’s a fun ride, especially for fans of the genre.

If you’re interested in checking out the pilot, it will be available at for 30 days starting June 20. The pilot also stars Billy Campbell (Helix), Michael Michele (Gossip Girl), Jeanine Mason (Bunheads), Corey Reynolds (The Closer), and Gregg Sulkin (Faking It).
