Hulu’s June is going to be a great month. This month, Hulu’s streaming service is breaking the dam with a number of high-profile original shows, including The Orville: New Horizons, Love, Victor, and Only Murders in the Building, as well as one of 2021’s best films, the Norwegian dark comedy The Worst Person in the World. Other networks’ next-day drops, like FX’s The Old Man and the Bear and Freeform’s last season of Motherland: Fort Salem, are helping the show’s ratings.
Glee, the pop culture phenomenon that launched the careers of numerous stars, including its creator Ryan Murphy, will return to streaming in June. After departing Netflix last year, it is now available on Hulu.
What to watch on Hulu in June, as well as lists of new and upcoming shows, has been put together by our team.
The Best Hulu Movies and Shows for June
Anne Winters, New Horizons: The Orville
Anne Winters, New Horizons: The Orville By Michael Desmond, through Hulu
Glee (June 1)
Glee, Ryan Murphy’s high school glee club dramedy that lasted for a few outstanding seasons and then several disastrous seasons, has been glaringly absent from streaming services since it departed Netflix last year. As a result of Disney’s acquisition of practically everything, Hulu and Disney+ have been renamed the Mouse House. Watch Matthew Morrison’s Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison) in his wedding attire sing “The Thong Song” to Jayma Mays (Jayma Mays).
The Last Tourist (June 1)
That vacation to a third-world country where you planned to ride an elephant and post photos on Instagram will be reconsidered after watching this documentary exposing the tourist industry’s destructive impact on our planet. In the eyes of the critics, The Last Tourist is a smashing success, lauded for its powerful message and stunning visuals. I know you’ll be tempted by the beautiful scenery, but please don’t.
The Orville: New Horizons (June 2)
It’s been more than three years since Seth MacFarlane’s underrated The Orville last aired, on a new network (it used to be on Fox), and with a new title thanks to the pandemic’s inexplicable postponement. As a tribute to Star Trek, when it’s done right, it’s a beautiful collection of self-contained stories about people and technology. In bad form, it’s a show that can’t figure out what tone it’s striving for. Although Hulu already had decent visual effects, it is possible that they will get much better with the switch to streaming.
Fire Island (June 3)
An Asian-led homosexual rom-com five years ago would have been unimaginable. As a result of technological advancements, we now have the delightful Hulu original Fire Island, a film about a trip to New York’s famed homosexual party hotspot. On a week-long summer vacation, Bowen Yang and Joel Kim Booster play friends who feel out of place and get into all sorts of mischief. So far, the reviews have been excellent.
The Worst Person in the World (June 13)
The best movie of the year 2021 is finally available to stream. It’s all about love in this Norwegian black comedy, especially the muddled portions that cause us to behave inexcusably. A woman (Renate Reinsve) goes through a series of relationships over the course of several years in this film, which was nominated for two Academy Awards.
The Old Man (June 17)
Jeff Bridges stars as a former CIA operative who goes on the run after an assassination attempt flushes him out of hiding. The grizzled old FBI agent played by John Lithgow is on the hunt for Bridges. It’s an old man vs. old man situation! I’m sure your father will appreciate this. It will launch on Fox on June 16th, followed the following day by a streaming debut on Hulu.
Only Murders in the Building (June 28)
“The program that resonates with people who are lovers of Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez returns.” True crime-loving nosy neighbors are implicated in murder this season, and they must tour their apartment complex with accusatory eyes on them as a rival podcast competes.
