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

We’re glad—and frankly a little surprised—that you’re reading this and not the redacted Mueller report, but streaming entertainment doesn’t stop for the shenanigans of the U.S. government, and neither do we. Hulu’s adding an enticing pile of television and film titles in May, so why don’t we take a look-see at what’s coming down the pike?

Arguably the next month’s most exciting addition is the complete limited series premiere of Hulu original Catch-22 (May 17), adapted from Joseph Heller’s seminal novel of the same name. The star-studded adaptation of the satirical World War II story, led by Christopher Abbott (Yossarian), Kyle Chandler (Colonel Cathcart), George Clooney (Scheisskopf) and Hugh Laurie (Major de Coverley), is executive produced by Clooney, who also directed two episodes. Other May TV highlights include: the latest episode of Into The Dark, Hulu’s Blumhouse-produced horror anthology, titled “All That We Destroy” (May 3), season 6A of Comedy Central’s education/inebriation combo series Drunk History (May 4), the complete second season of TNT’s Niecy Nash-starring crime dramedy Claws (May 12), season three of AMC’s balls-to-the-wall Preacher adaptation (May 21), the complete remaster of iconic beach rescue series Baywatch (May 23), the complete fifth season of beloved (and recently ended) Comedy Central sitcom Broad City (May 27) and, last but by no means least, the complete first season of AMC’s acclaimed horror anthology The Terror (May 29), the first iteration of which centers on a perilous naval voyage into unchartered territory. Starz, Showtime and HBO subscribers can access those pay-cable channels’ original shows via Hulu, as well, such as new episodes of Vida, Our Cartoon President or Chernobyl, respectively.

On the feature film end of the spectrum, Hulu users have plenty to look forward to, much of which lands squarely in the comedy category. The vast majority of the streamer’s May additions arrive on the first of the month, including Richard Linklater’s beloved high-school comedy Dazed and Confused, Frank Darabont-directed Stephen King adaptation The Green Mile, horror-comedy crowdpleaser Zombieland, Sacha Baron Cohen’s iconic 2006 mockumentary Borat: Learning of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation Kazakhstan, Charlie Sheen-starring baseball classic Major League, Oscar-nominated thriller Fatal Attraction, key Kevin Smith joint Clerks, acclaimed Mike Nichols comedy The Birdcage, Terry Gilliam’s 1995 sci-fi standout Twelve Monkeys and, of course, Shaquille O’Neal-starring ‘90s comedy Kazaam (not to be confused with Shazaam, starring Sinbad, a film that doesn’t actually exist). Following those films later in the month are Paul Haggis’ notorious Best Picture winner Crash (May 6), critically reviled—seriously, the Rotten Tomatoes consensus just says “Ouch”—Johnny Knoxville comedy Action Point (May 9), Judd Apatow’s Seth Rogen-led romantic-dramedy Knocked Up (May 16) and 2004’s Thomas Jane-starring take on The Punisher (May 17), among others. But of course, if those additions don’t whet your appetite, you might consult our lists of Hulu’s best film offerings in the comedy and horror categories.

Taking note lastly of what’s leaving Hulu after April, we’ll call your attention to titles leaving the streamer on May 31, including 1967 Sergio Leone spaghetti Western A Fistful of Dollars (and sequel For a Few Dollars More), Oscar-winning family dramedy Little Miss Sunshine, David Lynch masterwork Blue Velvet, Christopher Nolan franchise-launcher Batman Begins, Jim Carrey comedies Ace Ventura: Pet Detective andAce Ventura: When Nature Calls, Tim Burton’s iconic Edward Scissorhands, cult workplace comedy Office Space, Oscar-winning wine country dramedy Sideways, Martin Scorsese’s wrenching spiritual epic Silence and quite a few more.
