The weather’s getting warmer, but don’t worry if you’re not quite prepared to face the outside world just yet. Hulu has you covered in May with a slew of premieres, including the complete final season of Aidy Bryant’s Shrill, the debut of Marvel animated series M.O.D.O.K., and the fifth season premiere of Freeform’s The Bold Type.

On the film side, the streaming service will debut original film Plan B, about high school BFFs on the hunt for the morning after pill, plus some ’90s rom-com classics (How Stella Got Her Groove Back, One Fine Day), 2016 South Korean zombie film Train to Busan, and more. A few films — including One Fine Day, Any Given Sunday, Almost Famous, and Reservoir Dogs — are premiering May 1 before leaving Hulu at the end of the month, so watch them while you can!

Read on to find out what else is headed to the streaming service and what’s leaving this month, with a few highlights at the top.


Shadow in the Cloud (2021)


Description: In the throes of World War II, Captain Maude Garrett (Chloë Grace Moretz) joins the all-male crew of a B-17 bomber with a top-secret package. Caught off guard by the presence of a woman on a military flight, the crew tests Maude’s every move. Just as her quick wit is winning them over, strange happenings and holes in her backstory incite paranoia surrounding her true mission. But this crew has more to fear… lurking in the shadows, something sinister is tearing at the heart of the plane. Trapped between an oncoming air ambush and an evil lurking within, Maude must push beyond her limits to save the hapless crew and protect her mysterious cargo.

Critics Consensus: Part creature feature, part war movie, and part social commentary, Shadow in the Cloud doesn’t always blend its ingredients evenly — but it’s frequently pulpy fun.

Premiere Date: May 5, 2021

Shrill: Season 3 (2020)


Description: Season 3 of Shrill finds Annie (Aidy Bryant) energized by her breakup with dud boyfriend Ryan and her newfound momentum at work. Annie feels like everything is finally falling into place for her, but does she actually know what she really wants?

Premiere Date: May 7, 2021

Saint Maud (2020)


Description: The debut film from writer-director Rose Glass, Saint Maud is a chilling and boldly original vision of faith, madness, and salvation in a fallen world. Maud, a newly devout hospice nurse, becomes obsessed with saving her dying patient’s soul — but sinister forces, and her own sinful past, threaten to put an end to her holy calling.

Critics Consensus: A brilliantly unsettling blend of body horror and psychological thriller, Saint Maud marks an impressive debut for writer-director Glass.

Premiere Date: May 13, 2021

Supernova (2021)


Description: Sam (Colin Firth) and Tusker (Stanley Tucci), partners of twenty years, are travelling across England in their old campervan visiting friends, family and places from their past. Following a life-changing diagnosis, their time together has become more important than ever until secret plans test their love like never before.

Critics Consensus: Led by moving performances from Firth and Tucci, Supernova is a heartbreaking look at the emotional toll that comes with accepting mortality.

Premiere Date: May 18, 2021

Description: In Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K., the megalomaniacal supervillain M.O.D.O.K. (Patton Oswalt) has long pursued his dream of one day conquering the world. But after years of setbacks and failures fighting the Earth’s mightiest heroes, M.O.D.O.K. has run his evil organization A.I.M. into the ground. Ousted as A.I.M.’s leader, while also dealing with his crumbling marriage and family life, the Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing is set to confront his greatest challenge yet!
