Kristen Stewart’s Rom-Com ‘Happiest Season’ to Skip Theaters, Will Debut on Hulu

The upcoming Christmas rom-com Happiest Season, starring Kristen Stewart and Mackenzie Davis, will be skipping theaters and going right to streaming.

The movie was supposed to be released in theaters on November 25, right in time for the holiday season, but now it’s going to be released on Hulu that same day.

Here is the movie’s synopsis: Meeting your girlfriend’s family for the first time can be tough. Planning to propose at her family’s annual Christmas dinner – until you realize that they don’t even know she’s gay – is even harder. When Abby (Stewart) learns that Harper (Davis) has kept their relationship a secret from her family, she begins to question the girlfriend she thought she knew.

The movie was directed and co-written by Veep actress Clea DuVall. Also starring in the movie are Mary Steenburgen, Victor Garber, Alison Brie, Aubrey Plaza, Dan Levy, Burl Moseley, and the film’s co-writer Mary Holland.

TriStar president Nicole Brown said in a statement, “This holiday season — more than any other — we could all use a little happiness. It was essential to Sony Pictures and to the filmmakers that Clea’s marvelous and fresh holiday-themed romantic comedy come out when the lights are on the trees. We are excited that Hulu is geared up to make this happen in the U.S. and grateful that they love the movie as much as we do.”
