Solar Opposites (2020)

Going through Rick and Morty withdrawal? Well, Solar Opposites is the perfect filler. After an alien species lands on Earth, they try their best to fit in to middle American life. The transition is complicated, to say the least, but filled with science fiction and adult comedy that’ll leave you laughing.

The Dropout (2022)

Amanda Seyfried nails it as disgraced CEO Elizabeth Holmes. The Dropout gives us a cinematic retelling of Theranos’ rise to fame and its exciting fall. It’s a tale of deceit, money, “revolutionary” health care technology, and wild ambition.

Little Fires Everywhere (2020)

Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington shine in Little Fires Everywhere. They play moms from two different worlds who will do just about anything to protect their kids. This series takes an interesting look at race, class, and what it truly means to be a mom.

The Girl From Plainville (2022)

Ripped straight from the headlines, this true-crime series is inspired by the Michelle Carter “texting suicide” case. In 2019, Carter was convicted of involuntary manslaughter for allegedly coercing her boyfriend to take his own life. This series explores their relationship, the events leading to his death, and her trial.

Dragons: The Nine Realms (2021)

Let’s be honest: DreamWorks has the hits, so if How to Train Your Dragon was your ish (or your kid’s), this series is for you. Return to the world of dragons with a modern twist. In this show, a group of kids stumble across a hidden nest of dragons. But to protect their new fire-breathing friends, they must keep their discovery a secret.

The Kardashians (2022)

If you mourned the series finale of Keeping up with the Kardashians on E!, Hulu has come to the rescue. Your favorite family is back, and the “new” show is called The Kardashians. But don’t worry — same family, different channel.

Life & Beth (2022)

Amy Schumer gives us the gift of hindsight in comedic form. Thanks to an incident, Beth has the chance to see how she became the person she is today. Her flashbacks give her much-needed insight and help her along her journey to becoming the person she wants to be. This show is both amusing and inspiring.

Woke (2020)

Keith Knight wants to be a mainstream cartoonist, but just when he’s about to reach success, he has an accident that changes his perspective. His new outlook on life forces him to reevaluate his career and what progress means to him. And, if you loved New Girl, Lamorne Morris, aka Winston, stars in the show and is just as funny!

How I Met Your Father (2022)

Hilary Duff will always hold a special place in our hearts (shout out to Lizzie McGuire), and in this series reboot, you’ll love her even more. Duff plays Sophie, a woman on a journey for love in New York City. In true How I Met Your Mother fashion, her friend group is filled with hilarious characters who help her through the ups and downs of romance.
