Hulu: What's New in June 2019

Promo graphics for The Handmaid's Tale - Season 3

June is here and it's an exciting month on Hulu, as new shows, new seasons and new movies premiere on the streaming platform that's increasingly home to some of the best content online.

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 the U.S. version of Netflix, and dozens of other streaming services from around the world.


If there's one show on Hulu that defines the platform and heralded its rise as a premium platform, then it's 'The Handmaid's Tale'. The hit, award-winning show is, even in this golden age of television, the definition of prestige television and it's well written, well made and well acted. Season three of 'The Handmaid’s Tale' premieres on June 5.

Still from The Weekly

For those who feel that serious journalism is as important as ever in this increasingly confusing world, the 'The Weekly' from The New York Times may be the documentary series for you. Fake news, a scam and manufactured stories of hardship, and that's just in episode one, which premieres on June 3.

And all the way from Germany is the superb series 'Das Boot'. Based on the novel, which was turned into a superb movie in 1981, this updated series is definitely binge watching material. Stream the first season on June 17.

Movies, Documentaries:

A whole heap of great movies are coming to Hulu in June as well.

Still from Vice

The very much unauthorised biographical film 'Vice' stars barely recognisable Christian Bale and Amy Adams, and tells the story of Vice President Dick Cheney, his rise in politics, his involvement in the war in Iraq (and the formation of ISIS), all the while examining what made him the person he is. Stream it starting June 10.

Nick Hornby books have been made into so many movies ('About a Boy', 'High Fidelity', 'Fever Pitch', just to name a few), and in 'Juliet, Naked', Hornby returns to his musical roots. The film got very little attention at the box office, but you can check it out on Hulu starting June 24.

Still from The People vs. George Lucas

Two documentaries arriving in June are also well recommended. The Hulu Original 'Ask Dr. Ruth' (June 1) profiles the famous sex therapist Dr. Ruth Westheimer, while 'The People vs. George Lucas' is a funny look at Star Wars fandom and its battle with the franchise's creator, George Lucas. You can tell the documentary has aged by the fact that Disney now owns Star Wars, not Lucas, but it also hasn't aged because the issues examined in the documentary are as valid as ever.

More and more classics are also joining the Hulu library in June, including but not limited to 'Planes, Trains and Automobiles', 'Kindergarten Cop', 'Independence Day' and Christian Bale as another American psychopath in 'American Psycho'.

Leaving Hulu:

Some great content will be leaving Hulu at the end of June as well, including (and again, not limited to) 'Cold Mountain', 'Happy Feet', 'Jumanji' and its spiritual sequel 'Zathura: A Space Adventure' and 'Six Degrees of Separation'. Catch them before they're gone!


So that's a roundup of June on Hulu. Excited?
