Hulu next month (June 2023) plans to add 129 new TV shows and movies to its subscription Video on Demand service. Here are the three most interesting, in my humble opinion.

The Bear, complete season two
Jeremy Allen White stars as an award-winning chef in New York who moves back to Chicago to help his family transform a lowly sandwich shop. The show is a warm and often funny look at family loyalties, human frailties and individual perseverance. And you can consume the complete season two in one sitting! (The complete season one is now on Hulu so you can catch up.) Debuts June 22.

The Good Shepherd
Did you know that Robert DeNiro was originally slated to play the Jack Nicholson role in Martin Scorsese’s classic crime drama, The Departed? Bobby D bowed out because he had a previous commitment — he wanted to direct The Good Shepherd. While that may now sound like a poor choice, The Good Shepherd is an underrated film that deserves some love.

The 2006 drama chronicles the early days of the Central Intelligence Agency through the eyes of Matt Damon’s character, who was based on two real-life CIA officers. It depicts the moral conflicts that quickly emerged at The Company as the agency’s architects tried to use their position to further American influence across the globe but actually resulted in diminishing that influence through abuse and overreach. Debuts June 1.

FX’s The Full Monty, complete season one
FX produced this follow up series to the 1997 same-named comedy film, but it will only air on Hulu. The show picks up 25 years after our band of unemployed British mates decide to form a striptease act to make some money. Original cast members, including Robert Carlyle, are on board and if the series is half as good as the movie, there will be plenty of laughs. Debuts June 14.

Here is the complete list of new titles that will be added in June 2023 to Hulu:
