Summer is here, and Hulu is here with a fresh list of new drops for August. Hulu already dropped some huge names in July, with Galaxy, Fargo, and Caddyshack. However, the only original release on Hulu in July was the FX- Hulu Production’s series American Horror Stories, which came on the 15th of July. It was a spinoff of the original series and contained horror episodes instead of a long arc that ran an entire season, like the original one. This new original received mixed responses from audiences.
After the long July, and August in a week, Hulu is all prepared to put on some big names this month. With the restrictions of COVID 19 being lifted in most countries of the world. Hulu is making sure that it doesn’t lose precious watch time. And hence we are assured that August 2021 will be a memorable month for content on Hulu.
