A new month means all new content is coming to Hulu. Among the May shows and movies hitting the streaming site are a number of classics, including The Dark Knight, The Green Mile, and The Graduate. Horror fans will also be happy to see films new (The Lodge) and old (The Conjuring), while movie buffs will be able to catch up on features they may have missed in theaters, such as 2019's Rocketman and 2020's I Still Believe, starring Riverdale heartthrob KJ Apa.
On the television side, there are a number of highly-anticipated Hulu originals dropping in May, including a new animated show from the Rick & Morty creator, a royal biopic series, and a scary new entry to their Into the Dark franchise.
Of course, the addition of so much new content means some shows and movies will also be leaving Hulu, but new content will be added throughout the month, so you'll never run out of new stuff to watch. See the full list of everything coming and leaving below, as well as a few more highlights to look out for. If you're a fan of the Free Willy franchise, you're going to want to schedule a triple feature ASAP.
