New on Hulu: All the Movies and TV Coming in May

Spring has sprung, but whatever the weather, we committed, pop culture-loving couch potatoes are keeping our pollen allergy-inflamed eyes on our beloved streaming services, making sure not to miss the most enticing new titles being added in May. Here are just a few of the new movies and TV shows you Hulu users will want to stay indoors for next month.

Hulu’s flashiest impending additions are in the feature film department, with the Margot Robbie-starring Oscar nominee I, Tonya leading the way—chronologically, though, it’s bringing up the rear, as it doesn’t stream on Hulu until May 31. The fast-paced, darkly comic drama follows infamous ice skater Tonya Harding (Robbie, in a transformative performance) as she rises through the ranks of U.S. figure skaters, only to have her career irrevocably clouded by her connection to an ill-conceived attack on her rival, Nancy Kerrigan. The Craig Gillespie-directed, Steven Rogers-scripted film also stars Sebastian Stan as Harding’s impetuous ex-husband Jeff Gillooly and Allison Janney as her sharp-tongued mother LaVona Golden—Janney won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her performance. Other noteworthy feature film additions inbound on May 1 include six A Nightmare on Elm Street films, Kevin Costner-starring baseball classic Bull Durham, Dwight Schrute’s favorite movie The Crow (and its three sequels), Roland Emmerich’s 1998 take on Godzilla, the Wachowskis’ iconic The Matrix (and its two sequels), the first five Rocky films, Steven Soderbergh’s Oscar-winning drug-smuggling drama Traffic and Tom Cruise-starring WWII thriller Valkyrie. And there are still more movies coming later in the month, including Diane Kruger-carried drama In the Fade on May 11, last year’s swing-and-miss of a Baywatch reboot and slyly satirical Will Ferrell/Adam McKay comedy Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby on May 12, intimate political drama Beatriz at Dinner on May 19, actress Heather Graham’s directorial debut Half Magic on May 23, and finally the aforementioned I, Tonya, as well as Oscar-winning buddy drama Rain Man, on May 31.

As far as the small screen is concerned, Hulu is making a number of notable additions next month, so we’ll take you on a brief tour through them in chronological order. We’ve got season 5A of Comedy Central’s Drunk History and season one of Sunrise’s Mobile Suit Gundam The Origin on May 5, the season two premiere of Showtime’s I’m Dying Up Here on May 6, the complete third season of Disney XD’s Star vs. The Forces of Evil on May 7, the season four premiere of NBC’s Running Wild with Bear Grylls on May 8, the complete second season of AwesomenessTV’s T@gged on May 9, the complete first seasons of Hulu’s All Night and TNT’s Claws on May 11, the complete third season of Syfy’s 12 Monkeys and the complete fourth season of FX’s The Strain on May 16, the season 13 and two premieres of NBC’s America’s Got Talent and World of Dance, respectively, on May 30 and finally, the season 10 premiere of NBC’s American Ninja Warrior on May 31. Whatever show you plan to dive into or catch up on next, you’ll want to keep in mind that Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale debuts its new season next Wednesday, April 25—it’s the streamer’s most successful original series for a reason.

Last but not least, it’s worth taking stock of all the titles leaving the big green streamer in May, including a number of films you might want included in your personal viewing history. On the last of the month, Hulu loses the John Hurt-starring adaptation of George Orwell’s sci-fi essential 1984, harrowing sexual assault drama The Accused, ‘90s Nickelodeon kids flick Harriet the Spy, Emmy-winning Malala Yousafzai documentary He Named Me Malala, Denzel Washington-led thriller John Q, Farrelly brothers bowling comedy Kingpin, Oscar-nominated 1979 dramedy Manhattan, Don Bluth’s acclaimed animated tale The Secret of N.I.M.H. and 1999 remake The Thomas Crown Affair, starring Pierce Brosnan and Rene Russo.
