What's new on Hulu in July? 

What's new on...

Summer TV is heating up, but Hulu is hoping you'll find something to relax with on those summer nights with its lineup of new and classic TV shows and movies hitting the service in July.  

The full slate of what's coming to Hulu is below, but here are the titles that we are most excited to stream this month.

Best movie on Hulu in July: Aliens (July 1)

With a brand new Alien movie coming out this year (Alien: Romulus in August), there couldn't be a better time to revisit arguably the best entry in the long-running sci-fi franchise. Your thoughts on that statement may differ if you're more of a horror or action fan, but what can't be denied is that Aliens is a brilliant ramping up of Ridley Scott's original movie by James Cameron that kept the spirit of the original but allowed the director to truly make it his own. And come on, how can you ever be tired of Sigourney Weaver kicking some alien butt?

Other movies to add to your watchlist this month are (500) Days of Summer, Ford v Ferrari, Garden State, Get Out, Super Troopers and The Monk and the Gun.

Best TV show on Hulu in July: Unprisoned season 2 (July 17)

Kerry Washington may forever be known for playing Olivia Pope in Scandal, but her new TV show Unprisoned is quickly becoming a fan favorite. Starring opposite Delroy Lindo as a father and daughter forced to deal with their estranged relationship when the dad is released from prison, Unprisoned was a critical hit with its first season, scoring a 93% "Fresh" score on Rotten Tomatoes. Perhaps more importantly, audiences loved it too, with a 94% positive audience score on the site. Hopefully, the fun keeps on rolling in Unprisoned season 2

Summer is here, and that means it's time for some shark-centric content. National Geographic is doing its part with its annual Sharkfest, a month of programming around the sea's apex predators. While this year's content is going to air throughout the month on National Geographic, much of it is going to be available immediately to watch on Hulu starting July 1. So get ready to take a bite out of Sharkfest on Hulu this year. 

Here is the complete list of what is new on Hulu in July:
