What to Watch on Hulu

Hulu has thousands of TV shows and movies—we’ve picked a few hundred of our favorites.

Netflix is known for its original content, and Prime Video is all about sheer quantity of movies and TV shows—Hulu falls somewhere in the middle. With thousands of hours of acquired content and a respectable slate of original productions, Hulu has—excuse the cliché—something for everyone.

Hulu also has the advantage of being the go-to service for next-day streaming of broadcast and cable shows from FOX, ABC, Freeform, and more. Add the exclusive FX content hub and live TV streaming (Hulu + Live TV), and you have even more viewing options with Hulu.

So, without further adieu, here are some of our favorite TV shows and movies currently available on Hulu.

List of 31 horror movies to watch in October on Hulu

What We Do in the Shadows | Comedy, supernatural

FX series What We Do in the Shadows (based on the 2014 movie) is the smartest comedy about the dumbest supernatural beings since Twilight. European vampires Laszlo (Matt Berry), Nadja (Natasia Demetriou), and Nandor (Kayvan Novak) have lived for centuries, but have apparently learned nothing. Which makes them more convincing as “human” Staten Island roommates. Well, slightly more convincing.

Only Murders in the Building | Comedy, mystery

Banjo enthusiast Steve Martin’s streaming debut Only Murders in the Building teams him with longtime partner Martin Short and Selena Gomez as an unlikely, true-crime-obsessed trio investigating a suspicious death in their Manhattan apartment building. Naturally, they also record a podcast about their investigation—why let a perfectly good murder go to waste?

The Bear | Drama, comedy

When his brother dies, New York fine-dining chef “Carmy” Berzatto (Jeremy Allen White, Shameless) returns to Chicago to run his family’s less-than-fine sandwich shop. Possibly the most accurately chaotic kitchen depiction ever, The Bear is a comedic/dramatic look at restaurant (mis)management, familial relations, and “effing Chicago.” Five Michelin stars.

Reservation Dogs | Comedy

Reservation Dogs follows four Native American teens desperate to get out of their Oklahoma reservation and travel to the mythical land of California—and they’re not above some criminal mischief to fund their escape. The show has made headlines for its Indigenous representation in front of and behind the cameras but, most importantly, Reservation Dogs is just funny as hell.

Killing Eve | Action, drama

A cat-and-mouse crime thriller that’s far more than that, Killing Eve pits American MI5 agent Eve (Sandra Oh) against Russian serial assassin Villanelle (Jodie Comer), who always slips away—until she doesn’t. A mutual obsession develops between the put-upon agency paper-pusher and the sleek (if a little off) fashionista killer, spinning the story off into wildly unexpected directions.

The Princess | Action, fantasy

When a princess (Joey King) runs away from her arranged marriage to royal Julius (Dominic Cooper), her family is taken prisoner and she’s locked away in a castle tower. Standard medieval stuff . . . until The Princess suddenly becomes Die Hard in a corset. King kicks visceral ass and slices her way through numerous goons in this unexpected feminist action flick.

Fire Island | Comedy, romance

A sunscreen-soaked take on Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice starring Saturday Night Live’s Bowen Yang, Fire Island follows the summer vacation of a group of friends at the east coast getaway. The LGBTQ+ rom-com has been critically hailed as a “downright magnificent film that puts most modern studio comedies to shame” (IGN), and we couldn’t agree more.

Boss Level | Action, sci-fi

A former special forces agent (Frank Grillo) is forced to live (and die) the same day over and over again, evading a flamboyant gang of assassins and solving the mystery of his vicious time circle (hint: Mel Gibson in villain mode is behind it). On the surface, Boss Level is Happy Death Day meets Crank in a video game, but it’s also slyly funny and occasionally even sweet.

Palm Springs | Comedy, sci-fi

Another Groundhog Day-inspired tale, Palm Springs finds wedding attendees Nyles (Andy Samberg) and Sarah (Cristin Milioti) caught in a perpetual time loop—plus a mystery man with murderous intent. Nyles and Sarah’s endless attempts to break out of the loop cycle hilariously through resignation, love, disgust, and back again, never quite landing where you expect it to.

Run | Drama, thriller

Chronically ill, wheelchair-bound teenager Chloe (Kiera Allen) is cared for and homeschooled by her mother, Diane (Sarah Paulson), isolated from people and forbidden to even use the internet. Chloe suspects that Diane is keeping secrets from her and begins investigating her own illnesses, only to find nothing is as it seems. Run is a tense, twisty nail-biter to the end.
