Fire Island live stream

Premieres: Fri 3rd June 2022 

US stream: Hulu 30-day free trial

UK stream: Disney+ (£7.99/month)

Cast: Joel Kim Booster, Bowen Yang, Margaret Cho, Conrad Ricamora, James Scully, Matt Rogers, Tomás Matos, Torian Miller, Nick Adams and more.

It's hard to tell from the trailer (which you can watch below) but Fire Island is a story inspired by Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice – but with cheap rosé and drag queens instead of fancy balls and horse-drawn carriages (although both have their own Mr Darcys).

It follows gay best friends Noah (Joel Kim Booster) and Howie (Bowen Yang) as they embark on their annual pilgrimage to Fire Island – a week of partying and hedonism with their closest pals. But when they hook up with another group of guys who turn out to be dreadful snobs, Fire Island starts to generate all sorts of heat.        

Fire Island premieres on Friday 3rd June. Fans in the US can watch free with Hulu's 30-day free trial. Follow our guide to watch Fire Island free from where you are...
