Hulu: What's New in January 2019

Poster for Atlanta: Robbin' Season
Sean Fang Mon, 31/12/2018 - 17:53

It's a new year on Hulu, and with Disney acquiring Fox's share in the streaming platform to add to their own, it could be a big, monumental year for the platform. But before we get to all this, there's the small matter of previewing what's going to be happening in January.

To watch Hulu here in Australia, you'll need a geo-unblocking service, which also allows you to access all the latest TV shows and movies on Hulu. There are many geo-unblocking services, but with increased scrutiny, we can only recommend one particular service, and you can read about it all here. The same subscription also allows you to sign up to and watch US Netflix, and dozens of other streaming services from around the world.

And as a reminder, there are lots of shows not listed below that are still continuing to air weekly new episodes, or returning from mid-season breaks (such as season 2 of the 'The Orville' and the mid-season return of shows like 'This Is Us' season 3). The preview and listings below are only for brand new content and new season premiers.


Lots of shows will be returning from their brief winter hiatus, but there are also some new complete seasons of joining Hulu in January. The highly rated (and for good reason) 'Atlanta' returns with the complete season 2 ready for streaming on January 1 (those of us in Australia might have already watched the season via SBS On Demand though). The hit series's second season is interestingly titled 'Robbin' Season", and as to why it's called that, all will be explained in this sometimes surreal, often super smart, and always entertaining comedy series about Atlanta, its music scene and much, much more.

Still from The X-Files Season 11

Hulu Original 'Future Man' returns with the complete season 2 streaming on January 11, following the further time travelling adventures of Josh, Wolf, and Tiger.

And you might have already streamed season 11 on an episode by episode basis, but the latest (and last?) season of 'The X-Files' can now be streamed in its entirety starting January 3. More Fox-y and Dana-y adventures, plus the return of a few favourites from the show's past, for those still following the show 24 years (!) after its initial debut.

Movies, Documentaries:

Looking forward to Hulu's movie additions in January, those looking to host a movie marathon might consider the 'Lethal Weapon Quadrilogy' (January 1), especially now that Mel Gibson has been rehabilitated. Some of the best, kick-ass action movies that the late 80's and early 90's had to offer, to be honest. Action not quite your thing? How about teen angst with a hint of vampires? Stream the 'Twilight Pentalogy' (that's all 5 movies), also starting January 1.

Still from Scent of a Woman

Classic movies available in January include the likes of 'Rain Man' and 'Scent of a Woman', featuring a strong, hamming performance by Al Pacino.

Documentary fans should check out Michael Moore's 'Capitalism: A Love Story' (January 1), and there's a bunch of new content coming from the History Channel and A&E including, randomly chosen, 'JFK Declassified: Tracking Oswald' and 'The Menendez Murders: Erik Tells All'.

Leaving Hulu:

As usual, there are some pretty good stuff leaving Hulu as well. Luckily, they're leaving at the end of the month, so you still have time to check out titles like '28 Days Later', 'Jerry Maguire' and 'Reservoir Dogs'.


Now that's a nice way to start the year, isn't it? See you next month/year!
