What’s new on Hulu this month? We’ve got the full rundown of all the new movies and TV shows that have been added to the Hulu streaming service for August 2022, from classic and new summer blockbusters, to a handful of brand new Hulu originals and plenty more. But before we get to that, we’re here to help you cut through the options with our picks of the best of what’s coming to Hulu this month.

Best movie on Hulu in August: Blazing Saddles (August 1)

Mel Brooks is a Hollywood legend. One of the funniest filmmakers to ever do it, he’s responsible for gut-busters like The Producers, Young Frankenstein, Spaceballs and History of the World Part One (with the long-awaited History of the World Part Two coming as a Hulu original). Another of Brooks’ all-time classics, Blazing Saddles, is part of Hulu’s new titles in August.

The western satire stars Cleavon Little, Gene Wilder, Slim Pickens, Harvey Korman, Madelien Kahn and Brooks himself. The jokes fire off faster than a six shooter, so you may have to watch it a couple times to be sure you catch them all.

Some other classic movies arriving on Hulu in August include Black Swan, the original Ghostbusters, Groundhog Day, Pretty Woman and Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man trilogy.

Best TV show on Hulu in August: Reservation Dogs season 2 (August 3)

One of the most critically-acclaimed new TV shows of 2021, Reservation Dogs season 2 arrives on Hulu this August. The comedy follows a group of Indigenous teenagers as they try to make the best of their lives in rural Oklahoma, while holding out dreams for something bigger. Though the show is produced by FX, it airs exclusively on Hulu. The first two episodes of season 2 debut on August 3, with one new episode releasing each week after that.

A few other new FX series are going to stream on Hulu in August, including the Ryan Reynolds soccer docuseries Welcome to Wrexham and the Steve Carrell/Domhnall Gleeson limited series The Patient.

Best Hulu original in August: Mike (August 25)

After Pam & Tommy was a success, Hulu hopes that it has another based-on-a-true-story winner in the Hulu original limited series Mike, about iconic boxer Mike Tyson. Billed as an "unauthorized and no-holds-barred" retelling, Mike sees Trevante Rhodes (Moonlight) lace up the gloves and bring Tyson’s career and personal life to viewers. Here’s hoping the series does what Tyson did best, knock people out.

Other Hulu originals, both movies and TV shows, for August include the Predator prequel, Prey, the new comedy series This Fool, a docuseries on the Los Angeles Lakers and some kid-oriented series in Trolls: TrollsTopia season 7, Dragons: The Nine Realms season 3 and The Croods Family Tree season 4.

Now here is everything new coming to Hulu in August.
