New on Hulu in August 2021: Movies and TV Shows

From star-studded limited series to groundbreaking new comedies to a new season of American Horror Story, the month of August on Hulu has it all. The crop of new movies and TV shows coming to the streaming service is robust in both quality and quantity this month, and that goes for genuine new releases and library titles alike.

August 18th marks the premiere of the Hulu original limited series Nine Perfect Strangers, which is based on the bestselling book of the same name by Liane Moriarty and boasts a cast that includes Nicole Kidman, Melissa McCarthy, and Luke Evans. Elsewhere on the TV side, the comedy series Only Murders in the Building stars Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez premieres on August 31st, and on the “FX on Hulu” front there’s the tenth season of American Horror Story and the new season of Archer on August 26th, and the new original comedy series Reservation Dogs on August 9th – which boasts an entirely Native main cast and writing and directing team.

Movie-wise, the hit Sundance documentary Homeroom – which follows a group of students for one year just as the pandemic hits – debuts on August 12th, and the Lil Rel Howery comedy Vacation Friends premieres on August 27th. And fairly new release titles Love and Monsters and Together Together are also making their Hulu debuts this month.

In terms of library titles, the new additions range from Steven Soderbergh’s prophetic Contagion to Darren Aronofsky’s Oscar-winning Black Swan to the comedy classic Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion.
