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)

9 Seasons
Animation, Action & Adventure, Comedy, Sci-Fi & Fantasy
Billy West, John DiMaggio, Katey Sagal
Created by
Matt Groening
Watch on Hulu

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)

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)

Jemaine Clement
Watch on Hulu

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
1 Season
Crime, Drama
Timothy Olyphant, Aunjanue Ellis-Taylor, Boyd Holbrook
Watch on Hulu

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
Music, Drama, History
Rami Malek, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy
Directed by
Bryan Singer
Watch on Hulu

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.
