Coming and Going on Hulu in May 2019

Hulu is hoping its next big thing is the new adaptation of Joseph Heller’s Catch-22 starring Christopher Abbott, Kyle Chandler, and George Clooney (who also produces). The entire six episode debut season will be released in May on Hulu.

Also coming in May is the British comic drama Funny Cow with Maxine Peake, the documentary Laddie: The Man Behind the Movies about producer Alan Ladd Jr., the first season of the historical thriller The Terror, the original Baywatch series in a newly-remastered presentation, and new seasons of Preacher, Claws, Angie Tribeca, Broad City, and Drunk History.

Older films coming to Hulu in May include Borat: Learning of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation Kazakhstan with Sacha Baron Cohen, Zombieland with Jesse Eisenberg and Emma Stone, Knocked Up with Seth Rogen and Katherine Heigl, Terry Gilliam’s Twelve Monkeys with Bruce Willis and Brad Pitt, Oscar winner The English Patient, Richard Linklater’s Dazed and Confused, and eighties flashback films Fatal Attraction, Flashdance, and Wargames.

Among the titles leaving Hulu at the end of May are Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins with Christian Bale, World’s Greatest Dad with Robin Williams, Oscar-winner Little Miss Sunshine, Tim Burton’s Edward Scissorhands with Johnny Depp, David Lynch’s Blue Velvet, and spaghetti western classics A Fistful of Dollars and For a Few Dollars More with Clint Eastwood.

Here’s what arriving on the service in May, and what’s leaving. (Day-after network debut showings are in italics)
