Hulu next month (July 2023) plans to add 166 new TV shows and movies to its subscription Video on Demand service. Here are the four most interesting, in my humble opinion:

Justified: City Primeval: Two-Episode Limited Series Premiere
Rayland Givens (Timothy Olyphant) is back as the modern-day U.S. Deputy Marshall who takes down the bad guys in a cowboy hat and John Wayne-like strut. The original Justified ran for six seasons (2010-2015) on FX but we’re only getting six episodes in this return. But we’ll take it. In Justified: City Primeval, Rayland goes to Detroit in search of an outlaw called The Oklahoma Wildman, played by Boyd Holbrook (Narcos). Debuts on Hulu on July 19, after the premiere on FX on July 18.

Essence: Festival of Culture (Livestream)
The annual musicfest returns to the New Orleans Superdome from June 30 through July 2 and Hulu will provide an exclusive 5-hour nightly livestream (8 p.m to 1 a.m. ET) with performances from Lauryn Hill, Missy Elliot, Megan Thee Stallion, Ludacris, Eve, Salt N-Pepa, Ice-T, Big Daddy Kane, Ice Cube, Jagged Edge and many others. What a lineup! Streams June 30-July 2.

The Ashley Madison Affair: Complete Docuseries
Hulu and ABC have teamed to rip the cover (or should we say, covers) off the Ashley Madison affair, the 2000s web site that promoted extramarital affairs and found itself the victim of hackers who exposed its clients’ most personal secrets. The three-part docuseries promises to reveal that the clients weren’t the only ones with secrets. Debuts July 7.

Futurama, Season 11 Premiere
Matt Groening’s adult animated series is back as a Hulu original after a 10-year hiatus from Fox and Comedy Central. The show features a professional slacker who’s awakened from a cryogenically induced sleep after 1,000 years. He’s taken in by his sole descendant who gets him a job at a delivery service. Debuts July 24.
