What’s coming to Hulu in August?

Here’s what’s New on Hulu This Month:

Prey

Coming on August 5, 2022

Set in the Comanche Nation 300 years ago, Prey is the story of a young woman, Naru (Amber Midthunder), a fierce and highly skilled warrior. She has been raised in the shadow of some of the most legendary hunters who roam the Great Plains, so when danger threatens her camp, she sets out to protect her people. The prey she stalks, and ultimately confronts, turns out to be a highly evolved alien predator with a technically advanced arsenal, resulting in a vicious and terrifying showdown between the two adversaries.

FX’s Reservation Dogs

Coming on August 3, 2022 (episodes released weekly)

From co-creators and executive producers Sterlin Harjo and Taika Waititi, Reservation Dogs is a half-hour comedy that follows the exploits of Elora Danan (Devery Jacobs), Bear Smallhill (D’Pharaoh Woon-A-Tai), Willie Jack (Paulina Alexis) and Cheese (Lane Factor), four Indigenous teenagers in rural Oklahoma. After the death of the fifth member of the Reservation Dogs, the crew took to stealing, scheming and saving in order to vicariously fulfill his dream of reaching the exotic, mysterious and faraway land of California. But after a promising start to their criminal endeavors, including the legendary heist of a Flaming Flamers chips truck, swiping some old lady’s weed edibles and some low-grade grand theft auto, the plan went bust.

The gang disbanded, with everyone trying to forge their own paths. Elora ghosted Bear and took off for California with the Rez Dogs’ mortal enemy, Jackie (Elva Guerra), the leader of a rival gang. Abandoned by his closest friend, Bear seeks a male parental figure to teach him how to “be a man” – but his choice of uncles to emulate leaves a lot to be desired. Meanwhile, Willie Jack thinks everything in their town is falling apart because of the curse she cast on Jackie and she’s determined to put that genie back in the bottle.

Cheese who, like Willie Jack, decided that Cali wasn’t for him, reunites with his grandmother who isn’t his grandmother. Lucky for the kids, they have the support of their loving and eccentric community of aunties and uncles to see them through, including Bear’s mother Rita (Sarah Podemski), local law enforcement Big (Zahn McClarnon), Elora’s Uncle Brownie (Gary Farmer), Willie Jack’s parents – Dana (Jennifer Podemski) and Leon (Jon Proudstar) – and Spirit aka William Knifeman (Dallas Goldtooth).

This Fool

Coming on August 12, 2022 (all episodes released)

Inspired by the life and stand-up of star and co-creator Chris Estrada, This Fool is an irreverent, cinematic half-hour comedy set in working-class South Central Los Angeles. The show centers on Julio Lopez, a 30-year-old who still lives at home who has been dating his girlfriend on and off since high school and finds any excuse to avoid dealing with his own problems.

Julio works at Hugs Not Thugs, a gang rehabilitation nonprofit, where he butts heads with his older cousin Luis, an ex-gang member who just got out of prison and moved in with Julio and his family.

FX’s The Patient

Coming on August 30, 2022 (episodes released weekly)

The Patient is a psychological thriller from the minds of Joel Fields and Joe Weisberg about a therapist, Alan Strauss (Steve Carell), who’s held prisoner by a patient, Sam Fortner (Domhnall Gleeson), who reveals himself to be a serial killer. Sam has an unusual therapeutic demand for Alan: curb his homicidal urges. In order to survive, Alan must unwind Sam’s disturbed mind and stop him from killing again … but Sam refuses to address critical topics, like his mother Candace (Linda Emond).

Alone in captivity, Alan excavates his own past through memories of his old therapist, Charlie (David Alan Grier), and grapples with waves of his own repressed troubles – the recent death of his wife, Beth (Laura Niemi), and the painful estrangement from his religious son, Ezra (Andrew Leeds). Over the course of his imprisonment, Alan uncovers not only how deep Sam’s compulsion runs but also how much work he has to do to repair the rift in his own family. With time running out, Alan fights desperately to stop Sam before Alan becomes complicit in Sam’s murders or worse – becomes a target himself.

Trolls: TrollsTopia

Coming on August 11, 2022 (all episodes released)

In TrollsTopia anything is possible with a little teamwork, glitter and a lot of FUN! When Val’s vacation doesn’t go to plan and R&B’s pancake breakfast falls flat, Poppy and the Trolls get creative. And when Cloud Guy is accepted to Cloud College he embarks on a hunt to find a replacement to annoy Branch in his absence. But does one even exist?!

Dragons: The Nine Realms

Coming on August 18, 2022 (all episodes released)

The discovery of the Fire Realm poses a challenge as the Dragon Riders struggle to traverse it safely. Meanwhile, the unhinged Buzzsaw is on the lookout for a mysterious “Lightning Bird” making it harder to keep dragons a secret. Tom, Jun, D’Angelo and Alex face off against the most powerful dragon they’ve ever encountered in a high-stakes mission to save the Crystal Realm. And much to everyone’s chagrin, Jun’s pesky, nosey brother is coming uncomfortably close to learning what actually happens in Dragon Club.

Does Hulu update new episodes?

Netflix updates the list of titles available almost every day during the month. Hulu adds everything on the first of the month and any expiring titles are available through the end of the month.

What does Upcoming mean on Hulu?

It means it hasn’t aired/recorded yet but is on the schedule.

How long does it take for Hulu to get new episodes?

Currently running programs are typically available the next day (or in some cases as much as 7 days) after they are aired. Hulu then retains license to stream that episode for a period of days or until they have approx 5 episodes under license, at which point newer episodes will push out older episodes.

My favorite thing to watch on Hulu is The Handmaid’s Tale.

A woman forced into sexual servitude struggles to survive in a terrifying, totalitarian society. Binge watch and complete season 1 and 2 now!

Catch-22 is a satirical dark comedy miniseries based on the novel of the same name by Joseph Heller. This premiere Hulu Original debuted on May 17, 2019.

The original series follows the adventures and misadventures of a US air squadron in Italy in World War II and stars Christopher Abbott, Kyle Chandler, Hugh Laurie, and George Clooney.
