New Hulu TV Shows and Movies (August 2022)

Hulu has a sleeper comedy on its hands

A big shout out to This Fool, a new comedy on Hulu that isn't getting the press it deserves, but is well worth your time if you're into silly comedies and odd-couple pairings. It stars Chris Estrada as a wuss who works for a nonprofit company that helps gang members rehabilitate and Frankie Quiñones as his cousin who just got out of jail, and wouldn't you know it? They don't exactly mesh. It's produced by the creators of TV Guide favorite Corporate, and has that same chill, dry vibe, but transported to South Central Los Angeles and filled with threats of violence and cupcakes. The whole first season is now available.

As for shows yet to be released, you can look forward to the new limited series Mike (Aug. 25), a dramatization of Mike Tyson's life; Welcome to Wrexham (Aug. 25), a docuseries following Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds as they buy a Welsh soccer team; and The Patient (Aug. 30), starring Steve Carrell as a therapist who is kidnapped by a serial killer (Domhnall Gleeson). 

We've put together our picks for what to watch on Hulu in August, plus lists of everything coming to and leaving Hulu in the month.

Reservation Dogs Season 2 (August 3)

The (reservation) dog days of summer are about to be fun again. Sterlin Harjo and Taika Waititi's chill FX comedy is back with a new season that finds the Rez Dogs on uneasy ground after Elora Danan (Devery Jacobs) splits town with Jackie (Elva Guerra) on a disastrous California road trip. Back home, Willie Jack (Paulina Alexis) worries the gang has been cursed, and Bear (D'Pharaoh Woon-A-Tai) gets a job. The teen angst in Reservation Dogs just hits different, as the teens say. Megan Mullally and Marc Maron guest star. -Kelly Connolly [Trailer]

Prey (August 5)

This Hulu original sci-fi film sounds like it was conceived at 4:20 in a dorm room at the University of Vermont: What if the Predator from the Predator films came to Earth before the first movie and fought against Comanche warriors in the 1700s? Here you go, guy who knows all the words to Phish's "You Enjoy Myself." But it's actually a really awesome action horror flick with star-making performance from Amber Midthunder that Hulu says is its biggest original film to date. [Trailer | Review]       

This Fool (August 12)

Comedian Chris Estrada plays a 30-year-old man who isn't in any rush to grow up; he still lives at home with his parents in South Central Los Angeles, he's more than happy to avoid any confrontation with the gang members in his neighborhood, and he works at a gang rehabilitation non-profit called Hugs Not Thugs with his cousin, who just got out of jail. [Trailer]

Mike (August 25)

Did you know Mike Tyson loves pigeons? You will after watching this eight-episode miniseries dramatization of his life, from wild child on the street to the most feared man in boxing to a guy who bit off someone's ear to his post-boxing redemption. Moonlight's Trevante Rhodes plays Iron Mike. Tyson himself is pissed about it, because he is not being compensated for his life story. [Trailer]

Welcome to Wrexham (August 25)

If Ted Lasso could do it, why not Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney? In this docuseries, the Deadpool and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia stars buy a beloved soccer team in Wales with the hopes of turning it into a winning club, despite having zero experience with sports management and — most embarrassingly — being American (and Canadian!). The series premieres Aug. 24 on FX, but drop on Hulu the next day. [Trailer]     

The Patient (August 30)

The genius team behind The Americans, Joe Weisberg and Joe Fields, is now the genius team behind The Patient, an FX-produced psychological thriller miniseries starring Steve Carrell as a therapist who is taken hostage by a serial killer (Domhnall Gleeson), who wants to curb his homicidal urges through therapy. The first step toward not murdering people is admitting you have a problem. [Trailer]
