At the beginning of (and during) every month, Hulu adds new movies and TV shows to its library. Below, you’ll find our recommendations for April 2018. For more comprehensive coverage of the best titles available on Hulu and elsewhere, check out Vulture’s What to Stream Now hub, which is updated throughout the month.

This Month’s Highlights

Available April 25

Because season two is almost here: The Handmaid’s Tale

Now firmly past the events of its source material, The Handmaid’s Tale has reached a fraught but exciting place. After a first season that both covered Margaret Atwood’s novel and expanded it, the dystopian series is now standing on its own, so it’ll be fascinating to see where it goes next. If you haven’t watched yet, the time to catch up on the Emmy-winning first season is now. Available April 25.

Available April 30

If you’re a fan of old-school sitcoms: The Carmichael Show

The Carmichael Show was canceled last year, after three barely watched but utterly brilliant seasons of multi-cam sitcom magic. Taking the Norman Lear–esque approach where families talk about issues to an extreme, the Carmichael family really talks about really difficult issues, squeezing the most comedic potential out of taboo and uncomfortable conversations. Bonus: This show gave a breakout role to Tiffany Haddish before Girls Trip. Available April 30.

Available April 1

Because it’s an unquestionable classic: Lawrence of Arabia

Do you really need a reason to watch (or rewatch) Lawrence of Arabia? It’s Peter O’Toole and Omar Sharif in one of the greatest movies ever made! Available April 1.
