The slate of what's new on Hulu for May 2022 just arrived in our inboxes, and so it's time to share it with you. This way, you'll be ready for the big new true crime dramatization starring Jessica Biel, a returning family favorite show and all the other new arrivals. That is, if your calendar isn't filled with the new movies and shows every weekend on all the big streaming services.

Included among the new arrivals is The Valet, a romantic comedy starring Samara Weaving as a movie star whose relationship with a married man (Max Greenfield) is potentially exposed by the paparazzi. Their solution is quite something, hiring valet Antonio (Eugenio Derbez) to pose as Olivia's actual new lover. If that sounds familiar, you're right: it's a remake of a French film.

Hulu's new additions also include a documentary about the GameStop stonks controversy and the Entertainment District Arc season 1 run of Demon Slayer Kimetsu No Yaiba. Also, while we're not listing them below, four more episodes of The Kardashians debut on May 5, 12, 19 and 26.

In addition to the list of what's new on Hulu for May 2022, we've also got the whole list of what's leaving Hulu this month. And while you wait for your personal picks to arrive, we've got two picks you need to check out now: a Hulu show with a 100% Rotten Tomatoes score and a returning Hulu show to binge-watch now.

New on Hulu: Editors' recommendations

Candy

Wondering where Jessica Biel's been? Well, she's back in Candy, a disturbing new series based on true events from the 1980s. Biel stars Candy Montgomery, a housewife and mother who's tried to live the good life. She is even discreet about when she acts out. But, then, something happens with Candy and her friend Betty (Melanie Lynskey), and it leads to an investigation.

Premieres Monday, May 9, Candy is a five-night event that ends on Friday (gulp) the 13th.

Dragons: The Nine Realms season 2

The animated How to Train Your Dragon universe continues to expand in the second season of Dragons: The Nine Realms. Set 1,300 years after the films, this series brings dragons — long thought to be mere legend — back to modern day when a group of friends discovers the beasts are real. But, while Tom, Jun, D’Angelo and Alex are doing their best to keep their winged friends safe, one of these kids is learning more and more about their ties to the history of dragons.

Streaming on May 5
