Stay-at-home orders have been extended through May in several parts of the country, but fear not—well, actually, a little fear around a global pandemic is both understandable and healthy—for Hulu has plenty of original and licensed content to entertain you as those little virus balls slam themselves against your windowpanes.

Solar Opposites, for example, debuts its premiere episode on May 8. The series, which comes from Rick And Morty veterans Justin Roiland and Mike McMahan, follows a family of dickhead aliens who build a home in middle America, where they find equal parts disgust and joy in this miserable planet. Premiering later in the month is last year’s Elton John biopic Rocketman, which, while not animated, is as bright and colorful as most cartoons. If that all sounds a bit garish, maybe try The Lodge, an icy horror flick from the directors of 2014's excellent Goodnight Mommy.

Other new arrivals include The Great, a satirical new drama series about the rise of Catherine The Great that stars young hunks Elle Fanning and Nicholas Hoult. Hulu’s also got a second season of the thoughtful and very funny Ramy, which follows Egyptian-American Ramy Hassan as he navigates millennial life as a Muslim in New Jersey. And then there’s Spaceship Earth, a documentary about the people who built the Biosphere 2 in 1991. Pauly Shore and Stephen Baldwin are nowhere to be seen.

The full list of what’s coming and going from Hulu in May is below.
