If you've been wondering through 2020 wondering "When, oh when, will there be a satirical take on Catherine the Great, for I cannot wait any longer ...", then May is definitely going to be your month.

Hulu will debut the original show The Great about the late Russian ruler. She's not often known for her comedic attributes, but let's face it — we'll take laughs wherever we can get them these days. The Great makes its appearance on May 15.

Elsewhere, Ramy Youssef is back as Ramy Hassan in the aptly titled Ramy , for Season 2. Look for it on May 29.

And that's just the tip of the iceberg. Here's the best of the best of what's coming to Hullabaloos in May 2020. And keep on scrolling for the full May 2020 Hulu schedule.
