You won't be able to get your 19 Kids and Counting fix on Hulu. E! News has confirmed the streaming site has pulled the embattled TLC series starring the Duggar family from its platform in the wake of Josh Duggar's scandal.

19 Kids and Counting reruns have already been pulled by TLC, but materials still remain on the network's site. When you search for 19 Kids and Counting on Hulu, content comes up, but it's linked to TLC.com and the videos don't load.

TLC has yet to officially pull the plug on the Duggar family series.  The network pulled all episodes of 19 Kids and Counting from rotation when a 2006 police report from 2006 resurfaced and revealed that cast member Josh had allegedly molested girls when he was a teen. But People reported a spinoff of the series about the families of newlyweds Jill and Derick Dillard and Jessa and Ben Seewald may be in the works.

TLC has made no official long-term decision about the fate of 19 Kids and Counting. Advertisers have been dropping like flies since news broke about Josh's past. Josh released a statement to People after his story made headlines.

"Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret," Josh, 27, said in a statement to People. "I hurt others, including my family and close friends. I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation. We spoke with the authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing, and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling. I understood that if I continued down this wrong road that I would end up ruining my life.

The scandal surrounding 19 Kids and Counting is similar to the trajectory of another TLC reality series, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. TLC pulled the plug on the Toddlers and Tiaras spinoff about Alana Thompson and her family when reports—and later proof—surfaced that "Mama June" Shannon was in touch with a convicted sex offender.
