New Hulu shows and movies coming in May 2022

Jessica Biel, Candy


Have you ever wished to see Jessica Biel with a curly hair wig and big glasses wielding an ax and chopping up her friend? If so, then you’re in trouble. But your wish will also be granted in May, when Biel stars in the new detective miniseries Candy, which comes to Hulu May 9. It’s just one of the new shows coming to Hulu in May.

On May 15, fans of Sally Rooney’s novel Conversations with friends (and the previous Rooney adaptation normal people) check out the small screen adaptation on friends, husbands and wives with benefits. OWN Season 6 sugar queen is coming to Hulu on May 16, the Hulu Original Movie The valet pulls up on May 20, and the Letterkenny spin off shoresy premieres May 27.

Below are our picks for what to watch on Hulu in May, along with lists of everything coming to and leaving Hulu in May.

Hatching (May 6)

Hulu is fantastic at streaming the world’s weirdest, and this 2021 Finnish creature feature certainly qualifies. A young gymnast secretly brings home a bird’s egg, and soon she’s eating bird seed and vomiting it up to raise a giant monster bird. More: It has good reviews. What else do you need to know?

Candy (9 May)

After season 1 of The fisherman, Jessica Biel goes back to stabbing people on TV in this five-night true-crime miniseries about Candy Montgomery (Biel), a 1980s housewife who has an affair with her friend’s husband (Melanie Lynskey ) (Pablo Schreiber) after feeling constrained by conformism to be a housewife. This leads to the stabbing, or hacking, in fact, since the murder weapon was an axe. Hulu is trying something different with Candy; the miniseries will release one new episode per day, starting Monday, May 9 and ending Friday, May 13. [Trailer]

Conversations with friends (May 15)

normal people was a quiet hit for Hulu, so it’s no surprise that Hulu is adapting another of Sally Rooney’s novels, Conversations with friends, as a mini-series. The subject is similar: accents and SEX! A more mature person would say “intimacy”, as the story follows a single man and woman who become sexually and emotionally involved with a married couple. It is a conversation, indeed! [Trailer]

shoresy (May 27)

This Canadian comedy spin-off Letterkenny gives more screen time to one of the show‘s most popular characters, the hockey bro and insult dealer Shoresy. And when I say more screen time, I mean it; we’ll actually see Shoresy’s normally hidden face. And you know what? It looks a lot like Letterkenny creator Jared Keeso. Letterkennyhas been quality for years, so there’s no reason to think it won’t be good either. Pull your balls and tell your mom to check it out. [Trailer]

Gun (May 31st)

British punk legends The Sex Pistols are getting everything they fought for with this commercialized mini-series biography set to air on a multi-company owned media giant. The six-episode series is directed by Danny Boyle and charts the band’s rise to fame. Most Unknowns were cast to play Sid Vicious, Johnny Rotten and Steve Jones, but The iron Throne Veterans Maisie Williams and Thomas Brodie-Sangster will play Pamela Rooke and Malcolm McLaren respectively. The real Rotten, aka John Lydon, sued to keep the Pistols’ music out of the show, but lost. Which is good for us, because the show wouldn’t be worth anything without it. [Trailer]
