There hasn't been a new episode of Armando Ianucci's brilliant British political comedy The Thick of It since 2009, which is forever ago in TV years, but Hulu and the BBC announced today that they're co-producing the long-awaited fourth season of the show. Starting July 29, all the previous episodes and specials (though not In the Loop) will be available on Hulu for U.S. audiences, and starting in early 2013, the new episodes will air overseas and on Hulu the same day. There are so many joyous obscenities in our future!
