How many episodes are in Great Expectations on Hulu?

You can expect to see a total of six episodes for Great Expectations. The limited series premiered today, Sunday, March 26, 2023, but only with the first two episodes. So not all of them dropped at once on the streamer. Going forward, one new installment will be released weekly on Sundays on Hulu until the finale, which is scheduled to release on Sunday, April 23, 2023.

The drama’s main character is Pip (Whitehead), an orphan who is eager for more than what his societal position offers him. Though his destiny is to become a blacksmith in the business left by his parents, he may be able to achieve that dream when the mysterious Miss Havisham (Colman) enters the picture, per the synopsis. This leads to a “dark world of possibilities,” that makes our central character reevaluate if it’s all worth it.

The show is written and executive produced by Steven Knight. Tom Hardy, Ridley Scott, Dean Baker, David W. Zucker and Kate Crowe also serve as executive producers on the project.
