What’s new on Hulu for August 2019

The dog days of summer are here; beat the August heat by sinking into your couch and watching your favorite movies and TV shows on Hulu. The streaming service welcomes the 11th installment of its holiday-oriented anthology horror series Into the Dark, the back-to-school-themed School Spirit. (Seriously, it’s already that time?!) Hulu original documentary Jawline tells the story of teenage micro-influencer Austyn Tester, who harnesses his viral fame to escape the confines of his rural Tennessee hometown. Speaking of documentaries: Mike Judge’s 2006 masterpiece Idiocracy is coming to Hulu to warn us of the perils of watering plants with energy drinks and settling disputes via demolition derby.

Check out the full listings below to find out what’s new on Hulu this month.

What’s new on Hulu in August 2019: Editor’s picks

Into the Dark: Culture Shock

The Fourth of July installment of Hulu’s holiday-themed horror anthology series follows Marisol (Martha Higareda), a pregnant woman who’s determined to cross the Mexican border into the United States, but ends up somewhere much more surreal. Culture Shock coincides with the horrors of border crossing and ICE detention playing out in real time, and politicians having a semantics debate over whether we’re running concentration camps. It imagines a worst-case scenario, which might not seem that far off, while showing a reverence for ’70s Mexican horror flicks. —Audra Schroeder

The Handmaid’s Tale season 3

Season 3 of the dystopian drama picks up right where season 2 left off, with June giving her baby to Emily (Alexis Bledel), who is escaping to Canada. Watching The Handmaid’s Tale in 2019 isn’t fun, and it doesn’t feel like entertainment. But it’s one of the strongest original drama series available on a streaming service. If you’re invested in the original story, it’s worth watching to find out how it unfolds this season. Gilead doesn’t feel that far off—it never did. —Tiffany Kelly

Ask Dr. Ruth

For decades, Dr. Ruth Westheimer made a name for herself by making much of America squirm, talking openly about sex at a time when nobody else was. Ask Dr. Ruth gives viewers insight that’s hilarious, heartfelt, and uncomfortable—sometimes all at once—into the woman who opened that door. Much of it will feel familiar, akin to revisiting an old friend—especially if you listened to Dr. Ruth on the radio or watched her on TV. Dr. Ruth often seems larger than life no matter what room she’s in, and Ask Dr. Ruth showcases that aplenty. —Michelle Jaworski
