Everything leaving Hulu in September 2023

The first day of fall is still a few weeks away, but some movies are dropping from Hulu like leaves in the evening breeze. This month, almost all of the departures are movies instead of TV shows. However, Hulu fans are likely to miss flicks like The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, as well as the first four Alien movies, a pair of Wes Anderson movies (The Grand Budapest Hotel and Bottle Rocket), and a whole lot of other titles.

Fortunately, new movies and TV shows are arriving on Hulu this month that will help offset these departures. And you’ve still got time to catch your favorites if you plan ahead and read through our list of everything leaving Hulu in September 2023. Our favorite selections are marked in bold.

This is also a great time to consider the Disney Bundle, which gets you Hulu, Disney+, and ESPN+ for just $14 per month. That’s basically like getting all three services, but only paying for two of them, and it’s pretty tough to beat. It’s also a great way to make sure you don’t miss anything on any of these services.

Trying to catch all the best films and shows before they become unavailable at the end of the month? Check our other monthly roundup of everything leaving Netflix.

Our top pick for September

The Descendants (2011) new

The Descendants
84 %
r 115m
Genre Comedy, Drama
Stars George Clooney, Shailene Woodley, Beau Bridges
Directed by Alexander Payne

If you’ve ever needed a reminder that George Clooney is a great actor, then you should watch The Descendants. This is a very affecting and emotional drama that follows Matt King (Clooney) and his two daughters, Alexandra (Shailene Woodley) and Scottie King (Amara Miller), as they face the impending death of Matt’s wife — and the girls’ mother — Elizabeth King (Patricia Hastie).

While Elizabeth is comatose and nearing the end of her life, Matt discovers things about his wife that make him reexamine himself and his relationship with her. Matt also attempts to reconnect to his daughters while navigating some additional family drama with his cousin, Hugh King (Beau Bridges). This film is a keeper, and even occasionally a tearjerker.
