Best Hulu Shows by Tomatometer

Updated March 1, 2021

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.

New Hulu originals include Animaniacs (pictured) and A Teacher. In addition to the newest additions, popular Hulu originals on the list include Pen15, Castle Rock (based on Stephen King’s works), Harlots, Shrill, Catch-22, and Veronica Mars.

Parent company Disney’s acquisition of 21st Century Fox also means that new Hulu TV shows can appear both on cable channel FX and Hulu, and 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.

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