Fork yeah! Everything new to Hulu this September

We’re fast approaching September, meaning the weather will cool down, everything becomes pumpkin flavored, and (more importantly) there’s an influx of hot new content headed our way. What better time than to book yourself a staycation and close yourself off from the world to catch up on your fave new shows and movies like the absolute boss you undoubtedly are?

Speaking of which, Hulu’s got a lot lined up for this coming September. From new and returning shows to classic movies, here are our top picks of the best content hitting the streamer next month, followed by the full list below.

Movies

There Will Be Blood (2007)

Available: September 1

One of the most stylized pieces from Paul Thomas Anderson’s oeuvre, There Will Be Blood studies a dysfunctional oil pioneer (played with an impeccable turn from Daniel Day-Lewis) whose trailblazing spirit is equaled only by his murderous ambition.

A winning combination of Jonny Greenwood’s unsettling score with the sparse script and vast landscapes culminate in a film that is nothing short of a modern-day masterpiece. Well worth a watch or revisit when it hits Hulu next month.

Adaptation (2002)

Available: September 1

Original, loopy, and made up of many layers – and that’s just Nicolas Cage. In Spike Jonze’s wildly offbeat dramedy, the actor stars as lovelorn screenwriter Charlie Kaufman (and his twin brother, Donald) who becomes desperate as he tries and fails to adapt The Orchid Thief by Susan Orlean for the big screen.

Jonze finely walks the line between originality and utter lunacy, while blurring the lines between truth, fiction, and straight-up fallacy with experimental, dazzling creativity. Plus Cage as Kaufman is just spectacular.

Unbreakable (2000)

Available: September 1

We’ve still got a good few months until M. Night Shyamalan’s comic-book thriller threequel Glass hits theaters (January 18, 2019 to be precise). So before then why not check out the first instalment in the trilogy, Unbreakable, as it’s hitting Hulu in September.

The story follows two men: David Dunn (Bruce Willis), a man from a blue-collar neighborhood in Philadelphia who emerges unharmed as the sole survivor of a train accident. And Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson), a mysterious stranger who offers a bizarre explanation as to why David escaped without a single scratch. To avoid spoilers, let’s just say the film ends with a classic Shyamalan twist that’ll have you gasping.

City of God (2002)

Available: September 1

Compelling, engaging, and at times hard to watch, City of God is truly one of the great cinematic masterpieces of the 00s. Looking at life in the slums of Rio de Janeiro, Kátia Lund and Fernando Meirelles shot scenes within Rio’s poorest neighborhood, but not once does the film feel as if it’s taking advantage. What unfolds instead is an honest and authentic look into a turf war between two drug dealers that ultimately shows the vicious cycle of how violence begets violence.

Moonrise Kingdom (2012)

Available: September 16

This winsome coming-of-age romance is peak Wes Anderson, about two outsider twelve-year-olds (Kara Hayward and Jared Gilman) who fall in love, make a pact, and run away together into the wilderness. The film is packed full of the filmmaker’s idiosyncrasies, including a fair helping of symmetry porn and settings awash with pastel colors. Bill Murray and Frances McDormand dazzle as the young girl’s parents while Edward Norton as Scout Master Ward is an absolute treat.

TV Shows

South Park: S22

Available: September 27

The season 22 premiere of Comedy Central’s most controversial animation will be dropping on Hulu later next month. As the show is written in real time, few plot details are available. But what we can confirm is that it will be topical, provocative, and a helluva good time. And you can bet your money Randy will be on top form as always.

This Is Us: S3

Release date: September 26

Be sure to have your tissues at the ready, because season three of NBC’s family drama is on its way. Set to be its most ambitious yet, the new episodes will journey back in time and see Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) and Rebecca (Mandy Moore) living “in a slightly happier time”.

The First: S1

Release date: September 14

One of the most anticipated TV shows in recent times, The First is Beau Willimon’s next TV project following his run with Netflix’s MVP House of Cards. Starring Sean Penn in his small screen series regular debut, alongside Natascha McElhone, Oded Fehr, James Ransome, LisaGay Hamilton, and Hannah Ware, the narrative is a fictional telling of the efforts to send the first manned mission to Mars.

The Good Place: S3

Release date: September 28

The Good Place is back – the sitcom about moral philosophy that no one had any idea would be so funny. Its unique and innovative take on heaven and hell will followup from that S2 finale, while the stunning ensemble cast – Kristen Bell, Jameela Jamil, William Jackson Harper, Manny Jacinto, and Ted Danson – are set to return. Fork yeah!

The Good Doctor: S2

Release date: September 25

The Good Doctor is back for another season, centering on Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore) – a young surgeon with autism and Savant syndrome – who is recruited into the surgical unit of a high-ranking hospital.
