April is a packed month on Hulu, including the season premieres of two popular FX series; new reality shows featuring a cannabis dispensary, Armie Hammer’s ex-wife, and one of the Real Housewives; and new documentaries about political hip-hop, horse racing and a legendary rock band.

Other new Hulu originals this month include the romantic comedy feature film “The Greatest Hits,” starring Lucy Boynton as a woman who can travel back in time via her favorite songs; “Vanderpump Villa,” the latest installment in Bravolebrity Lisa Vanderpump’s multi-pronged business empire; and British comedy “Dinosaur,” about two sisters whose close relationship is challenged when one of them suddenly gets engaged. 

Wrexham A.F.C., Bon Jovi, Elisabeth Moss and more round out this month’s new on Hulu highlights.

New on Hulu in April 2024: Top picks

'American Horror Story: Delicate' part 2

Ryan Murphy’s horror anthology series has now lasted long enough for him to leave its production company 20th Television for a deal at Netflix, and then return to 20th Television. Murphy has been involved with “American Horror Story” the entire time, crafting its blend of campiness and terror, across 12 seasons that present standalone stories with occasional minor connections.

The show’s 12th season is the first to be based on outside source material, adapting Danielle Valentine’s novel “Delicate Condition.” Kim Kardashian stars in her first major acting role, playing an actress who seems to be facing sinister forces that want to stop her from getting pregnant. The cast also includes “American Horror Story” regulars like Emma Roberts and Denis O’Hare. After the first half of the season premiered this past September, the final four episodes debut beginning this month.

Premieres April 4 on Hulu

'Under the Bridge'

For her first project since her Oscar nomination for Martin Scorsese’s “Killers of the Flower Moon,” Lily Gladstone co-stars in this true-crime drama based on a murder that took place in Canada in the 1990s. Gladstone plays Cam Bentland, a police officer in the town of Saanich on Vancouver Island. She joins with author Rebecca Godfrey (Riley Keough) to investigate the death of a teenage girl that occurred at a gathering of teens under a local bridge.

“Under the Bridge” is based on the real-life Godfrey’s book of the same name, chronicling a case that made national news in Canada. The cast also includes Archie Panjabi (“The Good Wife”) as the victim’s mother, in a story that explores issues of class, race and religion within an insular community.

Premieres April 17 on Hulu

'Welcome to Wrexham' season 3

The third season of this unlikely hit continues to chronicle the equally unlikely rise of the football (or “soccer,” for uncouth Americans) team from the Welsh city of Wrexham, following its purchase by actors Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney. It’s a feel-good docu-series about a pair of celebrities who do more than just lend their names to an investment property. They’re directly involved in building up the team and raising its status within the English football leagues.

That effort has paid off, and the third season finds the team in a new position in the National League, with the challenges of more intense, high-level competition. This season will also focus on Wrexham’s women’s football team, expanding the scope of a popular series that combines the self-deprecating humor of its Hollywood stars with the excitement of athletic achievement.

Premieres April 19 on Hulu

'Thank You, Goodnight: The Bon Jovi Story'

Although the term “hair metal” now sounds amusingly quaint, there was a time when bands like Bon Jovi, with their hook-laden pop-rock, teased hairdos and tight outfits, were considered the enemies of “real” hard rock music. Decades later, Jon Bon Jovi and his bandmates have come out ahead, with a career of enduring hits, a place in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and now this retrospective documentary.

The four-part series looks back at four decades of the band’s career, starting in small New Jersey clubs and extending through hits like “You Give Love a Bad Name” and “Livin’ on a Prayer.” It also catches up with the band in the present, as they continue making music and look toward the next phase of a prosperous career that has silenced all the doubters.

Premieres April 26 on Hulu

‘The Veil’

Elisabeth Moss starred in Hulu’s first major hit original series, “The Handmaid’s Tale,” and she returns to Hulu (via FX) this month for a globe-trotting espionage thriller created by Steven Knight (“Peaky Blinders”). In this six-episode limited series, Moss plays Mi6 agent Imogen Salter, who’s been undercover so many times that she may be losing her grip on her own identity. 

Imogen’s latest assignment sends her to a refugee camp in Turkey, where she’s tasked with escorting Adilah (Yumna Marwan), a woman who may have information about a terrorist plot to kill half a million people. Of course, neither Adilah nor Imogen’s bosses (including Josh Charles as a CIA agent) can be trusted, leading to plenty of double-crosses and shoot-outs as Imogen searches for the truth about her mission and attempts to avert disaster.
