What’s new on Hulu in May 2022


This month on Hulu, you’ve watched Candy and Conversations With Friends. Now it’s time to tug at your balls and get ready for Shoresy, the fast-talking, hard-hitting, fat-blasting hockey comedy that’s a spin-off of the cult Canadian hit Letterkenny. Shoresy drops the puck and slashes knees in six episodes starting on May 27. The Sex Pistols drama Pistol, directed by Danny Boyle and coming out on May 31, is also coming out later this month.

The Valet, a Hulu original romantic comedy about a valet driver (Eugenio Darbez) who gets involved in a plan by a famous actress (Samara Weaving) to fix a PR problem, comes out in May 20. On May 22, the original documentary Look At Me: XXXTENTACION came out.

Here are our suggestions for what to watch on Hulu in May and lists of everything that will be added to or taken away from Hulu in May.

The Best Movies and TV Shows on Hulu to Watch in May

Candy (May 9)

After Season 1 of The Sinner, Jessica Biel is back to stabbing people on TV in this five-night true-crime miniseries. Biel plays Candy Montgomery, a housewife in the 1980s who has an affair with her friend Melanie Lynskey’s (Melanie Lynskey) husband (Pablo Schreiber) because being a housewife makes her feel confined. This leads to stabbing or hacking since an axe was used to kill someone. Hulu is trying something new with Candy. From Monday, May 9, until Friday, May 13, one new episode of the miniseries will come out every day.

Conversations With Friends (May 15)

Ordinary People was a low-key hit for Hulu, so it’s no surprise that they’re making Conversations With Friends, another one of Sally Rooney’s books, into a miniseries. Both are about the same thing: accents and SEX! A more mature person would say “intimacy” because the story is about a single man and woman who get sexually and emotionally involved with a married couple. That is one heck of a conversation!

Shoresy (May 27)

This spin-off of the Canadian comedy Letterkenny gives one of the most popular characters, the hockey fan and insult-giver Shoresy, more screen time. And when I say more screen time, I mean it. Shoresy’s face, which is usually hidden, will be shown. And what do you know? He looks a lot like Jared Keeso, who wrote Letterkenny. Letterkenny has been suitable for a long time, so there’s no reason to think this won’t be. Pull-on your balls and tell your mom to look.

Pistol (May 31)

The Sex Pistols, famous in the U.K. punk scene, will get everything they fought against in this commercialised miniseries biography that will stream on a media giant that many corporations own. Danny Boyle is in charge of the six-part series about the band’s rise to fame. Mostly unknown actors will play Sid Vicious, Johnny Rotten, and Steve Jones. However, Maisie Williams and Thomas Brodie-Sangster, who have been in Game of Thrones, will play Pamela Rooke and Malcolm McLaren, respectively. The real Rotten, whose real name is John Lydon, sued to stop the show from using the Pistols’ music, but he lost. This is good because the show wouldn’t be worth anything without it.

A Beautiful Mind

The story of John Forbes Nash Jr.’s life is the inspiration for this human drama, which is based partly on Sylvia Nasar’s biography “A Beautiful Mind.” John Forbes Nash Jr. went through it all, from the heights of fame to the depths of vice. Early in his career, this mathematical prodigy came to the edge of worldwide notoriety after making an astounding discovery. It didn’t take long for Nash to find himself on a voyage of self-discovery that was both painful and terrifying.

A Raisin in the Sun

Following an African-American family in a cramped Chicago apartment, this critically acclaimed drama follows the Youngers. As a result of the passing of their patriarch, they’re faced with a huge insurance payout. There is a wide range of views on what to do with the money. One of Walter Lee’s parents, Lena (Claudia McNeil), wants to invest in a company, while the other, Walter Lee (Sidney Poitier), wants to purchase a home for the family to reside in.

The Adjustment Bureau

David Norris (Matt Damon) is on the verge of gaining a Senate seat when he meets a ballerina called Elise Sellas (Julianne Moore) (Emily Blunt). David is quickly taken with the gorgeous dancer, but mystery guys try to keep him from her. In the face of potent agents of Fate, David is forced to choose between accepting a planned path that does not involve Elise or defying Fate’s will to be together with her.

After Everything

New Yorker Elliot’s life is flipped upside down when he discovers that he has cancer at a young age. When he meets Mia, a lady who stands by his side through good times and bad, he finds solace and contentment.

The Angriest Man in Brooklyn

It takes Robin Williams some time to come to grips with the fact that a brain aneurysm will kill him in around 90 minutes.

The A-Team

As the leader of a tight-knit group of skilled operators, Hannibal Smith (Liam Neeson) enjoys it when a plan comes together. When Smith and his men are falsely accused of a horrific crime, they take matters into their own hands and use their unique skills to find the real culprit. As a former lover of one of the team members, Charissa Sosa (Jessica Biel) is on a mission to catch them no matter the cost.

The Big Year

Three guys find themselves at a crossroads. For Stu (Steve Martin), Kenny (Owen Wilson), and Brad (Jack Black), their respective mid-life crises and no-life crises are in full swing. Stu, Kenny, and Brad decide to join a famous competition to renew their sluggish lives. While traversing North America, the three friendly rivals compete to see how many species of birds they can identify in a year than anybody else.

Billy Madison 

Man-child His days are spent drinking and partying, as Billy Madison (Adam Sandler) has been throughout his life. Hotel magnate Brian (Darren McGavin), Brian’s father, gives an ultimatum after becoming fed up with his son’s careless behavior. Due to Billy’s father’s influence and bribery, he has 24 weeks to retake and pass every grade he previously completed. Otherwise, Brian’s deceitful partner, Eric, will be given control of the firm (Bradley Whitford).
