Here’s What’s Coming to Hulu in December

     November 30, 2015


Hulu, long in the streaming shadow of the behemoth Netflix, has started expanding its slate of original content, as well as deepening its movie library thanks to a recent partnership with Showtime. Hulu has often been the place to find some wonderfully obscure films and off-beat (and largely British) television, and its December release list includes a few gems worth noting.

On the TV side, the excellent FXX series Man Seeking Woman (review) will be available early in the month; the Louie-on-acid absurdist comedy starring Jay Baruchel and Eric Andre is an absolute must-see. Hulu is also launching a RocketJump TV show, which will be an experimental behind-the-scenes weekly look at how the YouTube show is made. Plus, the excellent German miniseries Deutschland 83 (review)about a young East German man recruited to spy on the West, will also be available for those who missed its SundanceTV run. Moonbeam City, Drunk History, and The Mindy Project will also be wrapping up their current seasons in December on Hulu.

As for films, there are a lot of Halloween leftovers, it seems. The Friday the 13th suite will be available, as well as Blacula. Yes, Blacula at last! On the opposite side of the spectrum, we’re also getting 1985’s The Care Bears Movie. (What a gloriously bizarre mix). There’s also the Matthew McConaughey-led Interstellar, directed by Christopher Nolan, which is landing along with Ava DuVernay‘s critically-acclaimed Selma. Plus, the Showtime addition also gives us a great Robin Williams performance in Good Will Huntingas well as the sports documentary Iverson.

Here’s the full list of what is coming to Hulu in December: (Note: Titles with an * are available with a subscription to the Showtime premium add-on.)
