There's plenty of variety headed to Hulu in July

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.

From comedy to drama, sci-fi to pseudo-documentary, Max has it all. Other than enjoying some spectacularly produced and acted miniseries entertainment, these shows will also teach you something if you allow them.

Dune 2 trailer drops, and we finally get to see Christopher Walken as emperor Shaddam IV

Many science fiction fans will tell you that Dune is perhaps the preeminent work of the genre to have ever been created. Based on the iconic novel by Frank Herbert, the film adaptation from 2021, starring Timothée Chalament and Zendaya, was a roaring success. The story follows a young man named Paul Atreides, tasked with handling a rapidly growing leadership role on the planet Arrakis, a desolate hellscape that has no technological advances but plenty of precious resources for the taking. The strong themes and climactic action sequences helped the first film gain the attention of those who usually aren't interested in sci-fi, and the laundry list of big names in the cast certainly helped.

We finally have a trailer for the sequel, Dune: Part 2. Check it out below:
