Fans of The West Wing have been hankering for another installment of political drama on network television for years now. While Madam Secretary probably isn’t quite up to the quality of TWW, it might scratch that itch in a way we haven’t had for some time. The price of power in Washington DC is on display in Madam Secretary as we walk in the shoes of a woman in power. Some have compared the setting to that of a Hillary Clinton tenure on capitol hill but the show creators deny that is the case.

Is Madam Secretary on Netflix or Hulu?

Hulu does have access to some CBS programming online but not Madam Secretary apparently. The show isn’t on Hulu at the moment.

Netflix, however surprisingly does actually have the first season of the program and we assume they will gain access to subsequent entries in the Madam Secretary library. This is very rare that Netflix has a show that Hulu doesn’t when it comes to programming that is currently on the air. Congratulations, Netflix!
