What’s new on Hulu in May and what’s leaving soon

If you’re not on the Hulu bandwagon yet, you’re missing out. The streaming service offers subscribers an impressive collection of new and classic shows and films, as well as plenty of original movies and series you won’t find anywhere else. May brings the premiere of suburban thriller Candy, romantic comedy The ValetLetterkenny spinoff series Shoresy, and Sex Pistols docuseries Pistol, among other new arrivals. Read on for all of the highlights, as well as everything else coming to Hulu — and leaving — throughout the month.

Read below for our top picks and keep scrolling for the full list, with our recommendations in bold.

Since you’re a Hulu fan, be sure to check out the Disney Bundle, which will get you Disney+, ESPN+, and a basic Hulu subscription for just $14 a month. You’re basically getting three streaming services for the price of two — it’s tough to turn that down.
