December has arrived, and that means a slew of new programming on Hulu. Beloved Canadian comedy series Letterkenny is coming to an end with its 12th season, marking the end of an era for one of Hulu’s earliest hits. There are new shows on the way, though, including the heist-thriller miniseries Culprits, U.K. dysfunctional family sitcom Such Brave Girls and the English-language dub of popular Korean teen superhero series Moving.

December also brings new documentaries, including the LGBTQ chronicle We Live Here: The Midwest, about the struggles faced by queer residents of conservative Midwest communities, and Nat Geo’s acclaimed investigative documentary The Mission. Recent theatrical releases The Retirement Plan, Blue Jean, and Maggie Moore(s) all make their streaming debuts this month. Here are a few top picks to look out for on Hulu in December.

New on Hulu in December 2023: Top picks

A Murder at the End of the World (FX on Hulu)

This murder mystery limited series takes a page from Agatha Christie — and Christie-influenced filmmakers like Rian Johnson and Kenneth Branagh — by gathering a group of guests in a remote country house. These whodunits always have a detective on scene and this time, she’s a tech-savvy Gen Z hacker named Darby Hart (Emma Corrison). She and eight others are invited by a reclusive billionaire (Clive Owen) to a retreat, and when one of the other guests is found dead, Darby must call upon her sleuthing skills to find the killer before they strike again.

Episodes 5, 6 and 7 air in December, so now is a great time to catch up on this series.

Culprits

This British crime drama about a group of criminals who pull off a daring heist takes place after what would be the main focus of most similar stories -- the heist itself. Instead, the series follows the crew after they’ve gone their separate ways, only to find themselves targeted for death by a mysterious enemy. 

The former associates who’ve worked hard to disassociate themselves have to reconnect to solve the mystery of who’s coming after them, while doing their best not to get killed. The eight-episode series was created by J Blakeson, who’s best known for writing and directing the Netflix movie I Care a Lot, so viewers can expect a similarly dark sense of humor and cynical view of humanity. The impressive cast includes Gemma Arterton, Kirby Howell-Baptiste, Niamh Algar, and Eddie Izzard.

Premieres December 8 on Hulu

The Mission

This Nat Geo documentary film explores the tragic story of Christian missionary John Chau, who was killed in 2018 while attempting to reach and convert the people of North Sentinel Island, one of the last uncontacted native groups in the world. Filmmakers Jesse Moss and Amanda McBaine examine Chau’s story from multiple perspectives, including fellow religious proselytizers, anthropologists, and other experts, working to understand his motives without condoning his illegal actions. 

The movie recounts the details of Chau’s experience while placing him in a larger context of missionary work past and present. Following an acclaimed film festival run and a limited theatrical release that culminated in four Critics Choice Documentary Awards nominations, The Mission makes its streaming premiere on Hulu this month. 

Premieres December 8 on Hulu

Letterkenny season 12

This long-running Canadian sitcom reached a new audience when Hulu brought it to the U.S. in 2018, and it’s since become one of Hulu’s signature shows, recently adding the spin-off series Shoresy. It’s rare for any streaming show to last for 12 seasons, and Letterkenny is coming to a close while it remains beloved by its dedicated fan base. 

The show about friends living in small-town Ontario, Canada, has transcended borders while offering an amusing — and perhaps skewed — portrayal of Canadian culture. All episodes of the 12th season will premiere at once, and while there’s likely to be a special final farewell, the season announcement promises business as usual, as the characters contend with small-scale storylines including a comedy night, a country music hit, and a new nightclub.
