Disney+ doubles TV collection with huge drop of classic shows next month – including Lost, Desperate Housewives and 24

DISNEY+ keeps shoring itself up as the service to beat in the fierce streaming wards.

The platform has picked up some huge shows for its new Star brand, adding to its already impressive library.

Star will launch on Disney+ on February 23 and will feature more adult friendly content, including many titles from US service, Hulu.

Along with two Star original series – Big Sky and Love, Victor – the platform will also host TV classics such as 24, Lost, Prison Break, Desperate Housewives and Atlanta.

Other big titles coming to Star include, How I Met Your Mother, The X-Files, Atlanta and Blackish.

Many of the films from the iconic Die Hard film franchise will also be available on Star.

Star joins an impressive stable of brands on Disney+ including Marvel, Pixar, Star Wars, National Geographic and of course, Disney.

Star will become the home for general entertainment and doubles the amount of content available to watch on Disney+.

The brand will come at no extra cost to Disney+ customers who currently subscribe to Disney+ for £5.99 per month, or £59.99 annually.

Disney+ parental controls will separate me-time from kids-time on the entire platform.

The app will be updated to include easy-to-use parental controls to ensure that Disney+ is suitable for audiences of all ages.

Star's first originals series include Ryan Phillipe's new mystery, Big Sky from visionary storyteller David E. Kelley (Big Little Lies and The Undoing).

Big Sky is an intense thriller that follows private detectives Cassie Dewell and Cody Hoyt as they join forces with his estranged wife and ex-cop, Jenny Hoyt, to search for two sisters who have been kidnapped by a truck driver on a remote highway in Montana.

But they soon discover these are not the only girls who have disappeared in the area. 

Love, Victor is the much anticipated TV spin-off of the critically acclaimed film Love, Simon. 

The ground-breaking LGBTQ+ teen drama is set in the same world as Love, Simon and follows Victor, a new student at Creekwood High School on his own journey of self-discovery, facing challenges at home, adjusting to a new city, and struggling with his sexual orientation.

When it all seems too much, he reaches out to Simon to help him navigate the ups and downs of high school.

Star launches on Disney+ on February 23.
