The 90 Best Hulu Shows by Tomatometer

Updated March 23, 2022

The top shows on Hulu include some of the most prestigious and binge-worthy series out there. The Handmaid’s Tale’s instant success helped establish itself as one of the best shows on Hulu and the streamer as a major player in the originals game. Other Hulu shows have since become known as buzzworthy and prestige programs, and the addition of FX on Hulu has added the cable network’s titles to the Hulu list.

Just consider some of the newest additions to our list: Certified Fresh at 79% and 88%, respectively, Pam & Tommy tells a fictionalized version of the theft of a tape that showed  Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee enjoying their young marriage together — and having sex — while The Dropout dramatizes the downward spiral of Elizabeth Holmes (Amanda Seyfried)  as head of medical technology company Theranos.

Parent company Disney’s acquisition of 21st Century Fox also means that new Hulu TV shows can appear both on cable channel FX and streaming service Hulu, and that FX and FXX series like Atlanta, Better Things, Justified, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and Nip/Tuck can now be found on the streaming platform too, alongside existing originals  Pen15, Castle Rock (based on Stephen King’s works), Harlots, Shrill, Catch-22, and Veronica Mars.

Rotten Tomatoes has put together a guide to every single Fresh-rated Hulu, FX, FX on Hulu, and National Geographic series you can stream on the service. To be included in our list of the best Hulu series, titles must be Fresh (60% or higher on the Tomatometer) and have at least 10 reviews, including episodic reviews like those on horror anthology series Into The Dark.
