by | November 25, 2020 | Comments

The month of December brings comfort, joy, and plenty of films and television headed to Hulu. The streaming service welcomes originals including a new series based on the Hardy Boys book series — hey, if Nancy Drew can get a sexy CW murder mystery, the Hardy Boys definitely deserve their own streaming show — plus the complete ninth season of Canadian comedy Letterkenny and the complete second season of animated kids’ show Madagascar: A Little Wild.

On the film side, catch The Crown breakout Josh O’Connor in the 2017 drama God’s Own Country, the Lord of the Rings trilogy, a few more James Bond entries (GoldenEye, Goldfinger), and plenty more.

Read on to find out what else is headed to the streamer and what’s leaving in December.


Description: The future of civilization rests in the fate of the One Ring, which has been lost for centuries. Powerful forces are unrelenting in their search for it. But fate has placed it in the hands of a young Hobbit named Frodo Baggins (Elijah Wood), who inherits the Ring and steps into legend. A daunting task lies ahead for Frodo when he becomes the Ringbearer – to destroy the One Ring in the fires of Mount Doom where it was forged.

Critics Consensus: Full of eye-popping special effects, and featuring a pitch-perfect cast, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring brings J.R.R. Tolkien’s classic to vivid life.

Premiere Date: December 1

Description: After a family tragedy strikes, Frank Hardy (Rohan Campbell), 16, and his brother Joe (Alexander Elliot), 12, are forced to move from the big city to their parents’ hometown of Bridgeport for the summer. Staying with their Aunt Trudy (Bea Santos), Frank and Joe’s quiet summer quickly comes to a halt when they discover their dad, detective Fenton Hardy (James Tupper) has taken on a secret investigation. Realizing that their Dad may be onto something the boys take it upon themselves to start an investigation of their own, and suddenly everyone in town is a suspect.

Premiere Date: December 4

Description: In season 9 of this comedy following two friends living in small-town Ontario, Canada, Letterkenny kicks off post-fight with Dierks (Tyler Hynes), and the Hicks, Skids, and Hockey Players attend an American Buck and Doe. Katy (Michelle Mylett) takes her scorched earth dating strategy back to Letterkenny and Gail (Lisa Codrington) gets some action of her own. Meanwhile, The Hockey Players learn about Judaism and the whole town gets really into sleepover activities like movies, board games, and girl talk. Then, a competing restaurant opens in Letterkenny and Tanis (Tiio Horn) starts her own energy drink.

Premiere Date: December 26
