What’s new on Hulu and what’s leaving in October 2018

Fall is here, and Hulu is delivering plenty of reasons for TV and movie lovers to stay inside through October. The streaming site has an impressive list of new offerings this month, from compelling original series to critically acclaimed movies. Here are some of the highlights, as well as a full list of what’s new this month.

The impending arrival of Halloween puts scary movies and television series in the spotlight, and Hulu is delivering two original series that turn up the fright factor. Anthology series Into The Dark premieres this month, along with the first season of Light as a Feather.

On the movie side, horror movie fans get a long list of thrillers and assorted scary films, including American Psycho and The Blair Witch Project, to name just a couple. For the horror-averse, there are also a few noteworthy offerings, including sci-fi comedy Galaxy Quest and the critically acclaimed Ruth Bader Ginsburg biopic RBG.

Read below for our top picks, or scroll to the bottom for the full list.

Our top picks for October

‘Into the Dark: The Body’

A co-production with celebrated horror producer Jason Blum’s studio, Into the Dark is an anthology series delivering one feature-length, stand-alone episode each month, beginning with October’s premiere of The Body. Each of the 12 episodes are inspired by a holiday, with The Body following a cynical hit man who’s tasked with delivering a dead body on Halloween night. The involvement of Blumhouse is reason enough to include this series in your Halloween screening marathon.

‘Light as a Feather’ Season 1

No Halloween viewing list is complete without at least one story of a group of teenagers tormented by a supernatural entity, and that’s exactly what this Hulu Original series provides. When a seemingly harmless game of “Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board” begins to have dire consequences for the innocent girls who played it, they must figure out why they’ve been targeted and what exactly it is that’s killing them off.


Over the last 25 years, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has built an impressive legal legacy while weighing in on some of the most important issues facing the nation. At 85 years old, she’s also become an unlikely pop-culture icon in recent years. Her life and rise to the highest court, as well as the daily routine and outlook that keeps her there, are chronicled in this well-received 2018 documentary.

October will also be your last chance to watch a variety of movies before they leave Hulu. Be sure to catch films like Any Given SundayPoint BreakThere Will Be Blood, and Unbreakable before they disappear.

Below is the full list of everything new coming to the streamer in the month of October, and everything going away.
