All New Movies and Shows Coming to Hulu in January

Hulu might still have a long way to go compared to its competitors, but with its robust collection of films and TV shows, the platform is not far away from becoming a serious player in the world of streaming. In the month of January 2020, Hulu will be starting off the year with the much-awaited second season of ‘Shrill’ along with the last two seasons of ‘Homeland’.

Moreover, when it comes to movies, the platform will again be streaming everything from classics like ‘Star Wars‘ to heartwarming Christmas flicks like ‘The Polar Express‘. With every passing year, Hulu is just proving to be one of the fastest-growing streaming platforms. So if you’re still thinking of subscribing to it, its January’s selection of films and movies will help you further cement your interest. Here’s a list of all the TV shows and movies that will be available for streaming on Hulu in January 2020.

7. Homeland Season 6 & 7 (10 January 2020)

Homeland’ centers a CIA operative Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) who believes that an ex-American prisoner, after he returns home from years of captivity, is working with Al-Qaeda. ‘Homeland’ has a brilliant team of writers and with each season, it proves to be an even better spy show. The show is a “tour de France” in itself. Despite its 8-year run, it has still been able to retain its hold as one of the most exemplary and important pieces of television. With its final season coming out in 2020, now would be the best time to start watching it.

6. Shrill Season 2- Original TV Show (January 24, 2020)

Shrill’ revolves around a young overweight woman, who wishes to change her life for the better. And while she’s at it, she has no intention of losing weight. As she tries to make her name as a journalist, the world around her, which includes her toxic family, bad boyfriends and her idealist boss, tries to bring her down because of her weight. However, upon realizing that she’s as good as anyone out there and her weight is not her identity, she sets out to make a difference in her life. In an industry where fat-shaming seems to be a norm, ‘Shrill’ not only brings in some good humor but also proves to be a revolutionary series in its own way by breaking stereotypes.  

5. Blood Diamond (1 January 2020)

Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Djimon Hounsou, and Jennifer Connelly, ‘Blood Diamond’ is set in the backdrop of civil war, where a man named Solomon gets abducted and is forced to work at a mine. While working there, he ends up finding a priceless diamond and instead of handing it over, he hides it with him. In exchange for the diamond, he then seeks his family. ‘Blood Diamond’, for the most part, is a moving fictional story, but it is inspired by facts and draws a vivid picture of a world we’re not aware of. 

4. Life, Animated (1 January 2020)

Based on journalist Ron Suskind’s 2014 book Life, Animated: A Story of Sidekicks, Heroes, and Autism, the film follows the story of Ron’s autistic son, Owen, who learned to interact with the world outside through Disney movies like ‘The Lion King’, ‘The Little Mermaid’, and many others. The film not only touches your heart but also gives you an insight into how someone with autism processes thoughts and interprets the world.

3. Star Trek II: The Wrath of the Khan (1 January 2020)

With some passionate acting, fantastic battle scenes and deep philosophical themes, ‘Star Trek  II: The Wrath of the Khan’ is still considered to be one of the best installments in the ‘Star Trek’ franchise. It marks the return of the evil Khan, who seeks vengeance through a potentially deadly device. And in the meantime, Admiral Kirk struggles with his own midlife crisis. Even if you have never seen any Star Trek movies before, this one is probably your best gateway to the classic franchise. 

2. The Art of Self Defense (1 January 2020)

Jesse Eisenberg plays the role of a young boy named Casey, a skinny nebbish, who decides to join a Karate dojo after being attacked on the street. However, as charismatic as his sensei initially seems, he later turns out to be leading a fraternity that encourages violence and invokes toxic masculinity. ‘The Art of Self Defense’ is not just any martial art movie, it is, in fact, more of satirical reflection on how many men can be swiveled into finding their own “inner brute” in today’s society.

1. The Polar Express (1 January 2020)

The best Christmas movies are the ones that perfectly able to encapsulate the spirit of the season. And for some reason, it is the animated Christmas film that tends to be the best picks. Starring Tom Hanks, ‘The Polar Express’ is about a young boy who gets the opportunity to embark on a journey to the North Pole where Santa Claus lives. Along the way, he meets several people who completely change his life and thus, make him believe in the magic of Christmas.
