New Hulu Shows and Movies in April 2023

Hulu is April showering you with some good-looking new shows and movies. This month, the streamer is bringing a few high-profile original series in Tiny Beautiful Things, starring Kathryn Hahn as an advice columnist who can use some of her own advice, and Saint X, a crime drama about a young woman who dies while on vacation in the Caribbean and her younger sister’s search for the truth. Hulu is also getting the new season of Dave a day after it premieres on FXX, as well as the complete series of New Girl, which has been on Netflix for what seems like forever. 

Below we have our picks for the best shows and movies to watch on Hulu in April, as well as a calendar of everything coming to and leaving Hulu.

The Good Mothers (April 5)

Like real champagne has to be from France, a good mafia television show has to be from Italy. This Italian limited series is a Disney+ title abroad, where D+ is more like an HBO Max or Netflix and can say bad words and such, but here in the U.S.A. where Disney+ wants to be kiddo-friendly television, it’s on Hulu. The drama follows a trio of women in the Calabrian ‘Ndrangheta mafia who work with a new female attorney to bring the crime family down from the inside, and was the grand prize winner of the inaugural Berlinale Series Award. No, I don’t know what that is either, but it’s better than losing the Berlinale Series Award, right? [Trailer]

Dave Season 3 (April 6)

FX’s comedy starring Dave “Lil’ Dicky” Bird returns for a third season as TV’s best comedy about an insecure white rapper with a weird-looking penis. It’s also better than most other things on TV, too. This season, Dave is headlining his first American tour, and learning that the country is pretty messed up. He’s also looking for love, and anyone who has seen the first two seasons know how hard the romantic episodes hit. Dave‘s a bit raunchy on the outside, but its sensitive inside and insightful look into fame make this more than a bro-y show about dick jokes. (But it has those too, and they’re funny.)

Tiny Beautiful Things Season 1 (April 7)

If you are a sentient being that is alive and can think for itself, then you’re a Katheryn Hahn fan. In her new series, an adaptation of Cheryl Strayed’s 2012 collection of essays from her advice column, Hahn stars as a writer whose life is in flux as she looks back on her younger years to remember the person she wanted to be. The series takes place in two timelines: one as an adult, and another when she was a teenager. It’s got all the hallmarks of a tearjerker, so keep a hanky handy. All eight episodes will be available on the premiere date. [Trailer]

New Girl complete series (April 17)

After years of Netflix exclusivity, Fox’s version of a Friends for millennials in Los Angeles but instead of three female leads it’s just one who is kind of like Phoebe and Monica combined moves to Hulu. If you don’t know what True American is, get on it. [True American compilation]

Saint X (April 26)

This eight-episode limited series is adapted from Alexis Schaitkin’s novel about a family on an island vacation that’s devastated after the elder daughter is found dead. A pair of native employees at the resort immediately become suspects, but years in the future, the victim’s younger sister (Alycia Debnam-Carey) searches for the truth. The series is told in different timelines, and explores themes of race and class. Three episodes drop on the premiere date, with more episodes coming weekly. [Trailer]
