Hulu is one of the best streaming services out there and it has an incredible Cyber Monday streaming deal. Right now, you can get Hulu for just 99 cents a month for an entire year

But wait — it gets better. You can even add Disney Plus to Hulu for just $2 more.

Here's the catch though: you only have until 11:59 p.m. PT on Tuesday (Nov. 28) to sign up. Once the clock strikes midnight this deal turns back into a massive pumpkin. 

But in case you still need convincing, I have seven big reasons you should take advantage of Hulu’s amazing Cyber Monday offer, and they’re all TV shows you can stream right now. Every one of these is a must-watch TV show and most of these are ongoing series, though I had to add one all-time great to the list. I even added two Disney Plus originals in case you're unfamiliar with the Marvel and Star Wars shows on the streaming service.

So if you still need a reason to get 12 months of Hulu for just $12 — or 12 months of Hulu and Disney Plus for less than $3 a month — here are seven big ones.

Hulu (w/ ads): was $7.99 now 99 cents per month
With a ton of original series and movies, plus the latest TV shows, Hulu has a lot to watch.

This promotional rate lasts an entire year and you can even add Starz for an additional 99 cents a month for the first six months. Deal ends November 28.

This excellent streaming bundle combines Disney Plus and Hulu for just $2.99 per month for a whole year. That's savings of nearly $13 each month. This offer is only on the ad-supported plans, but it's still the best Cyber Monday streaming deal we've seen so far. Deal ends November 28.

The Bear

The Bear is easily one of the best TV shows to come out in the past few years. Honestly, the trailer for the show was better than a fair amount of full seasons of TV. It’s hilarious, it’s soul-crushing, it’s aspirational and it’s nerve-wracking. Basically, if you want a show to put you through a full range of emotions while still leaving you feeling glad you watched it at the end then The Bear is for you.

Starring Jeremy Allen White as Carmen “Carmy Berzatto, The Bear is about Carmy’s return to his hometown of Chicago to take over his late brother’s restaurant. He arrives to find his cousin Richie (Ebon Moss-Bachrach) running the place and not doing the best job. So Carmy tries to bring his Michelin-star-level training to the dive sandwich shop and chaos ensues. I recommend this series to anyone who asks me what to watch and I have yet to hear a single bad review.

Genre: Comedy-drama
Seasons: 2 (18 episodes)

Only Murders in the Building 

Aside from The Bear, Only Murders in the Building may be Hulu’s best original TV show — and that’s no easy task. But when you consider that the show is driven by the comedic genius Steve Martin and his on-screen chemistry with Martin Short, maybe it’s not a surprise at all that this show is so beloved. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if one of your family members brought it up this Thanksgiving.

Starring Martin as Charles-Haden Savage, a former crime drama actor, Short as Oliver Putnam, a struggling Broadway director and Selena Gomez as Mabel More, a young actor living alone, the show’s first season focuses on the death of one of their neighbors and their investigation of his mysterious demise. I won’t spoil anything beyond that except to say that watching, Martin, Short and Gomez on screen together is worth 99 cents at least.

Genre: Comedic mystery thriller

A Murder at the End of the World

A Murder at the End of the World is the newest show on this list — it’s currently just three episodes into its eight-episode run. But it’s already captured my attention after just the first episode. Starring Emma Corrin as Darby Hart, the limited series event is a murder mystery whodunit but with a fairly dark tone. There are even pure horror elements in brief moments of the first episode.

In the show, Hart is a young crime-solving genius who is has made a name for solving the cases that have been abandoned by law enforcement. She’s also a fairly decent tech whiz. This seemingly earns her an invitation to tech mogul Andy Ronson’s (Clive Owen) retreat at an Icelandic hotel. However, as the first episode goes along, you start to wonder if Andy is, in fact, the one who brought her here. If you love a thriller, this ongoing series is worth watching right now, especially with Hulu just 99 cents a month.

 Welcome to Wrexham 

Welcome to Wrexham season 3 has already been greenlit so there’s never been a better time to start catching up on the first two seasons. Especially since season 3 is coming in Spring 2024 instead of the fall. This sports documentary has absolutely taken the world by storm and has made Wrexham — a football (soccer) club from a small city in Wales — an international brand overnight.

While this is a documentary, there are a few familiar Hollywood names. That’s because Wrexham is now owned by Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney. But I wouldn’t call them the stars of the show even if that’s how they’re listed on the call sheet. That honor belongs to the people that make up the club and the town that loves it. It’s their stories and their love of this football team that make some episodes of Welcome to Wrexham some of the most emotionally moving episodes of TV you can watch right now.

Justified

The last episode of Justified aired over eight years ago, but it’s never too late to watch one of the greatest TV shows of all time. Especially since once you’re done you can watch Justified: City Primeval — the limited series sequel that aired earlier this year — once you’re done.

But for now, let’s stick to the original. Starring Timothy Olyphant as Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens, Justified is a Western procedural crime drama that follows Raylan back to his hometown of Harlan, Kentucky. Once there, he needs to put away bad guys and exercise some demons from his past, all of which make for some incredible television. Olyphant is incredible, as is Walton Goggins as Kentucky outlaw Boyd Crowder. There are some truly incredible performances in this show and it's my top recommendation if you want a finished series on Hulu to binge.

Loki

The first season of Loki may be the best season of any Disney Plus TV series — though the final show on this list is right up there. And while the second season has some low points, the series' final three episodes really stick the landing. 

Starring Tom Hiddleston as Loki, reprising his role from the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, the show picks up right after the events of the first Avengers movie. Well, technically, it picks up right after Loki steals the Tesseract in Avengers: Endgame thanks to the Avengers going back in time, but I digress. Time quickly becomes more important than we ever thought though, and the events of Loki quickly reverberate throughout the MCU. 

The story is compelling on its own, but this show is all about star performances. Hiddleston's Loki and Owen Wilson's Mobius in particular steal the scene whenever they're paired together.

The Mandalorian

While the third season of The Mandalorian didn't quite hit the highs of the previous two, it's still the Star Wars show you need to watch. Starring Pedro Pascal as the titular Mandalorian warrior-turned-bounty hunter, the show is basically a Clint Eastwood Western set in space, down to the sweeping epic vistas and an incredible score by Ludwig Göransson.

The show starts off following Pascal's Mandalorian in the Outer Rim of the Star Wars galaxy as he takes on bounties for survival. But one bounty gets him entangled with forces beyond his reckoning, including powerful remnants of the former Galactic Empire. If you want a gritty Star Wars tale with only a sprinkling of Jedi, The Mandalorian is the show for you.
