Yes, the warm glow of the theatrical event feels distant as ever right now, but your TV would like to remind you that what it lacks in size it makes up for in sheer quantity. Hulu, for example, is positively brimming with fresh content in June, when it will debut everything from searing arthouse fare to heart-swelling documentaries to Padma Lakshmi.

Josephine Decker’s Shirley, for example, is sure to please cinephiles or anyone whose wit benefits from a tipple of whiskey. Sarah Gubbins’ adaptation of Susan Scarf Merrell’s 2014 novel stars Elisabeth Moss as novelist Shirley Jackson, who verbally and emotionally spars with her volatile husband, Stanley Edgar Hyman (Michael Stuhlbarg), to the horror of a young married couple that’s come to stay with them. That’s available on June 5. 

If your own cocktail has your tummy rumbling, Top Chef judge Padma Lakshmi will debut a new food travel series called Taste The Nation. Lakshmi, like Bourdain before her, is interested in how food intertwines with cultural identity, and her focus will primarily be on how indigenous communities and immigrants have helped inform the evolution of American cuisine. Another nonfiction outing to premiere in June is We Are Freestyle Love Supreme, a documentary about the improvisational hip-hop group that gave rise to Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda. A feature 14 years in the making, Andrew Fried’s film follows the performer and wordsmith from humble beginnings to Broadway dominance.

June will also see the premiere of two very different Hulu original series. The stop-motion Crossing Swords is a foul-mouthed riff on Game Of Thrones starring Nicholas Hoult, while Love Victor elaborates upon 2018's Love, Simon with its tale of a young high schooler struggling to articulate his sexuality.

A smattering of notable 2019 releases will also hit the streamer. Among them are A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood and Crawl, two solid outings, as well as the divisive reboots of Child’s Play and Charlie’s Angels. Also notable? Full seasons of Adult Swim cult classics like Children’s Hospital and Mike Tyson Mysteries.
