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

It’s a crowded field for Hulu these days with Disney+, HBO Max, and Peacock joining Netflix and Amazon Prime in the rapidly-expanding field of streaming services. Fortunately, Hulu is still delivering plenty of compelling TV series and movies to subscribers. The streaming service has an impressive list of new additions for December 2020, so we’ve highlighted a few key offerings this month and provided a full list of what’s coming to the service and what’s leaving.

December brings season 9 of Canadian comedy series Letterkenny, as well as the Hulu Original series The Hardy Boys, based on the popular novels. The service also adds all three films in The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Read below for our top picks, and scroll down further for the full list with our recommendations in bold.

Letterkenny, season 9

The hit Canadian comedy series returns for its much-anticipated ninth season, continuing the ongoing adventures of siblings Wayne and Katy and their friends Daryl and the inimitable Squirrely Dan in their small Ontario town. Rapid-fire dialogue, clever wordplay, and a fondness for bare-knuckle brawls abound in this surprisingly smart sitcom, which doesn’t show any signs of losing its charm after eight critically-praised seasons.

The Hardy Boys

Nearly a century after their adventures were first published in a long-running series of novels, The Hardy Boys return in this Hulu Original series, which follows the teenage detectives as they solve mysteries in and around their small town. Rohan Campbell (Operation Christmas Drop) and Alexander Elliot (Locke and Key) portray brothers Frank and Joe Hardy, respectively, in the series inspired by the popular books.
