Best Hulu Shows by Tomatometer

Updated January 3, 2022

The top shows on Hulu include some of the most prestigious and binge-worthy series out there. The Handmaid’s Tale’s instant success helped establish itself as one of the best shows on Hulu and the streamer as a major player in the originals game. Other Hulu shows have since become known as buzz-worthy and prestige programs, and the addition of FX on Hulu has added the cable network’s titles to the Hulu list.

Just consider some of the newest additions to our list, Certified Fresh at 100% and 98% respectively. First up there’s Only Murders In the Building, the madcap comedy mystery series starring Steve Martin, Martin, Short, and Selena Gomez. And then there’s the groundbreaking Reservation Dogs, a hilarious new series from co-creators Sterlin Harjo and Taika Waititi about four young indigenous teens in Oklahoma.

Parent company Disney’s acquisition of 21st Century Fox also means that new Hulu TV shows can appear both on cable channel FX and streaming service Hulu, and that FX and FXX series like Atlanta, Better Things, Justified, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and Nip/Tuck can now be found on the streaming platform too, alongside existing originals  Pen15, Castle Rock (based on Stephen King’s works), Harlots, Shrill, Catch-22, and Veronica Mars.

Rotten Tomatoes has put together a guide to every single Fresh-rated Hulu, FX, FX on Hulu, and National Geographic series you can stream on the service. To be included in our list of the best Hulu series, titles must be Fresh (60% or higher on the Tomatometer) and have at least 10 reviews, including episodic reviews like those on horror anthology series Into The Dark.

Recently Added: Score changes following the debut of the second half of Pen15 season 2.
