Hulu has carved out its place as a major player in the streaming industry with a combination of original series and established classics. Its relationship with both ABC and FX allows it to show network and cable shows that other streamers don’t have access to, creating a large library for fans of any genre. Hulu has anime, reality TV, drama, and comedy, and is continuously adding to its collection. These are five shows coming to Hulu in July that you’ll want to watch. Here’s what’s new on Hulu!

Futurama (1999)

tv-14 9 Seasons
Genre Animation, Action & Adventure, Comedy, Sci-Fi & Fantasy
Cast Billy West, John DiMaggio, Katey Sagal
Created by Matt Groening

Adult animation fans have been waiting quite a while for the triumphant return of one of the most unique, cult classic comedies in the history of the FOX network. Futurama is little bit of The Simpsons, but with a lot of science fiction twists and satirical romps through the future. (Not to mention, one of the saddest scenes in television history.) The show has been off the air for a decade, but new episodes should satisfy fans starting on July 24 on Hulu. 

The Jewel Thief (2023)

The Jewel Thief
Genre Documentary
Directed by Landon Van Soest

Nothing gets the juices pumping during the summer like a true crime thriller, except maybe a first-hand account of the crimes. Hulu has you covered with this movie about the heists pulled off by Canadian convict Gerard Blanchard, famous for stealing the Star of Empress Sisi. Blanchard shares some of his experiences as a jewel thief and spills the secrets of his hidden ways. 

What We Do in the Shadows (2019)

What We Do in the Shadows
tv-ma 5 Seasons
Genre Comedy
Cast Kayvan Novak, Matt Berry, Natasia Demetriou
Created by Jemaine Clement

One of the best supernatural TV series of the past decade, What We Do in the Shadows is entering its fifth season on July 13 with an abundance of energy and storylines still at its disposal. The vampire family at the heart of the series is interesting and funny at the same time, offering a different look at family life than what we are used to in similar mockumentaries like Modern Family or The Office

Justified: City Primeval (2023)

Justified: City Primeval
tv-ma 1 Season
Genre Crime, Drama
Cast Timothy Olyphant, Aunjanue Ellis-Taylor, Boyd Holbrook

Timothy Olyphant returns for this new miniseries in the Justified universe on July 18. Raylan Givens will adventure to Detroit this time around to battle The Oklahoma Wildman, a terrorizing force who has eluded the law enforcement of the area. (Givens will use his brash skillset to take care of the situation in his own manner, I’m sure.) 

Bohemian Rhapsody (2018)

Bohemian Rhapsody
Genre Music, Drama, History
Stars Rami Malek, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy
Directed by Bryan Singer

This award-winning film about the journey of the band Queen throughout the 1980s gives you entertaining insight into the most creative and outlandish pop group of the decade. Freddie Mercury is played with aplomb by Rami Malek, a performance that won him an Oscar.

Ranked: The 11 best Bill Murray movies ever
He's starred in a lot of films, but if you're a fan, you must see these Murray movies
Bill Murray from Lost in Translation

A name that is and should be widely recognized in comedy, Bill Murray has been around to provide laughs for decades. Bringing his own unique qualities to the screen, Murray has carved for himself a niche based on his personality that simply cannot be copied. Between his masterful physical comedy to his perfectly timed and hysterical line deliveries, Bill is truly a one-of-a-kind talent. From his many roles over the years, the films he stars in are either because a certain director or repeat collaborator has a great bond with him, or simply because he is able to steal the spotlight no matter the assignment. Due to this, he has been given opportunities to play cameos in later films such as Dumb and Dumber To, Get Smart, The Grand Budapest Hotel, and a cameo as himself in Zombieland, which has got to be his best cameo.
All the way from wacky and zany to introspectively deep, Bill Murray portrays a lifetime of emotions in our list of films today. If you watch him closely enough, his performative nuances will make you laugh, cry, and think about what it truly means to be an actor. Murray is loved as a human being worldwide (for the most part), who has reportedly shown his face at random bars and parties just for a kick, becoming the owner of four minor league baseball teams, spontaneously studying philosophy and history in Paris, and starting his own golf apparel line. These and many other reasons are why we are here today to celebrate his accomplishments on screen, so sit back and scroll through the 10 best Bill Murray movies ever.

We’ve handpicked a list of the best movies to stream right now on Netflix that the streamer made itself. You can also check out our list of the best Hulu series, best Amazon Prime series, and best Disney Plus series for more options.
