The Best New TV Shows on Hulu
If you don’t have Hulu, now is the time to do so. Not only is their catalog continuing to grow, but their original shows have gotten better and better as the streaming service grows. Now with the addition of FXX on Hulu (which puts all of the FX and FXX originals onto the service the day after the episode airs), there is a plethora of content at your disposal.
Perhaps you need a break from movies and are looking for that next great show, or maybe you’re just bored and want to watch something new. Either way, here is a list of some of the best shows on Hulu right now:
Little Fires Everywhere
Based on Celeste Ng’s 2017 bestseller, Little Fires Everywhere follows the intertwined fates of the picture-perfect Richardson family and an enigmatic mother and daughter who upend their lives. The story explores the weight of secrets, the nature of art and identity, the ferocious pull of motherhood – and the danger in believing that following the rules can avert disaster.
Devs is centered on Lily Chan (Sonoya Mizuno), a computer engineer investigating a quantum computing company called Amaya, run by Forest (Nick Offerman). She believes this company is responsible for the disappearance of her boyfriend.
Dave centers on a neurotic man in his late 20s who has convinced himself that he’s destined to be one of the best rappers of all time. Now he must convince his closest friends, because with their help, he might actually convince the world. Simultaneously exasperating and inspiring to his friends, he vows to leave no stone unturned on his quest to become the next superstar. The half-hour comedy is based on the life of rapper and comedian Dave Burd, better known by his stage name Lil Dicky.
Convicted of time crimes and sentenced to death by entertainment, Josh, Tiger, and Wolf become fugitives. The trio are on the run through time, trying desperately to evade capture while clearing their names and fixing the big mess of history they’ve made along the way.
A departure from Nick Hornby’s 1995 novel and beloved 2000 film, Hulu’s High Fidelity centers on Rob (Zoë Kravitz, who also serves as an executive producer), a record store owner in the rapidly gentrified neighborhood of Crown Heights, Brooklyn who revisits past relationships through music and pop culture, while trying to get over her one true love.
Eve’s life as a spy is not adding up to what she had hoped it would be when she started. She is a bored, very smart, MI5 security officer who is very desk-bound. Villanelle is a very talented killer, mercurial in mood, who clings to the luxuries of her job.
Eve and Villanelle go head to head in a fierce game of cat and mouse, each woman equally obsessed with the other as Eve is tasked with hunting down the psychopathic assassin. Sarah Barnett, BBCA president, says, “Killing Eve stands out in a sea of scripted stories as refreshingly entertaining and great fun.”
Killing Eve returns Sunday, April 12.
From Executive Producers Lorne Michaels and Elizabeth Banks comes the second season of Shrill, a comedy series starring Aidy Bryant (Saturday Night Live) as Annie, a young woman who wants to change her life — but at what cost? Having found a new sense of self confidence and control, Annie finds that the life she’s been chasing with Ryan, her friends, her family and her own career aren’t quite what she imagined. She’s got the confidence. Now what is she going to do with it?
