Best Hulu Drama Series On Netflix to watch in 2022

There was once a time when we had to wait for an entire week to watch what happened next in a show. Thanks to streaming services like Hulu and Netflix, the pain of waiting to see what comes next is over. Now, you can watch episode after episode of your favorite show and never have to leave a story hanging. 

If you’re looking for binge-worthy Hulu drama series on Netflix, here are some options that are worth trying. 

Only Murders in the Building (2021-present)

Synopsis: While the majority of the millennials have practically grown up with Selena Gomez as she evolved from a Disney Channel star to a global phenomenon, the older generation adores Steve Martin and Martin Short. True crime thrillers are a universal obsession among all ages.

The series follows three tenants of an affluent New York apartment as they use the death of one of the inhabitants as the setup for their own True-Crime series. Only Murders In The Building understands what the audiences want and mixes crime thriller and comedy seamlessly in the series. This is a show that everybody can find appealing, regardless of age.

Created by: Steve Martin, John Hoffman

Cast: Steve Martin, Martin Short, Selena Gomez, Aaron Dominguez, Amy Ryan, Nathan Lane, Da’Vine Joy Randolph

IMDb Rating: 8.1/10 

The Dropout (2022)

Synopsis: In The Dropout, Amanda Seyfried plays Elizabeth Holmes. The miniseries is based on the inception and failure of her IT company. The true story was transformed into a more engrossing narrative by creator Elizabeth Meriwether (Single Parents), who also gave viewers a greater understanding of the Theranos founder and the more complex specifics of the scandal.

In addition to receiving praise from critics and winning awards, Seyfried’s portrayal was so spectacular that it forced the cancellation of upcoming adaptations of this tale. The Dropout successfully explored previously unknown aspects of the story with the help of Naveen Andrews’ (Sense8) chilling performance as Holmes’ business colleague and lover.

Creator: Elizabeth Meriwether

Cast: Amanda Seyfried, Michel Gill, Naveen Andrews

IMDb Rating: 7.5/10 

Atlanta (2016) 

Synopsis: Atlanta is a short but elevated binge, with only two seasons and 21 episodes produced (seasons three and four are scheduled to debut next year on FX). The talented Donald Glover created Atlanta, a series that follows Earn (played by Glover) as he tries to balance his love life, career, and daily activities without stepping in his own path (a great challenge for the character).

Although this summary of the show is accurate, it does not even begin to cover the surreal and humorous detours the show takes from one episode to the next. Atlanta employs both chronological and non-linear methods of storytelling; some episodes feature traditional plotlines, while others stand alone and are virtually impossible to describe.

Average Tomatometer: 97%

Cast: Donald Glover, Earnest ‘Earn’ Marks, Brian Tyree Henry, Alfred ‘Paper Boi’ Miles

Better Things (2016) 

Synopsis: Better Things, a four-season FX series starring the feisty actress Pamela Adlon, has long been a fan favorite among critics. Better Things might not even seem like a comedy given that it follows a fictitious former child actor named Sam Fox as he struggles to preserve a career as an actor that could end at any time.

Particularly when you take into account the fact that Sam must manage her dual roles as a single mom of three and a live-in mum who suffers from mental illness. We assure you that this is a comedy, albeit not a typical one. The sly smirks that crinkle the cheeks of viewers are sure to reverberate long after the laughs have passed, even though the laughter are rarely out loud humorous.

Cast:  Pamela Adlon, Sam Fox,  Mikey Madison, Max, Hannah Riley, Frankie, Olivia

Fargo (2014) 

Synopsis: FX’s Fargo, which pulls its tone and setting from the Coen Brothers’ film of the same name, takes place within the same world as the Oscar-winning movie while still carving out a unique position of its own. Those who have seen the movie before won’t have any trouble identifying the icy landscape, regional accents, and odd characters thrown together with a campy, darkly humorous crime story.

The Fargo seasons can all be seen separately even though they are all tied to one another and the movie. While commencing from the start will help scooping up the inside references more pleasurable, you can simply start with just about any season and have a great time because each season takes place in a distinct year (2006, 1979, and 2010).

IMDb Rating: 8.9/10 

Harlots (2017) 

Synopsis: Harlots is a subtly pro-feminist story set in the 18th century featuring two rival madams running rival brothels in London. Samantha Morton and Lesley Manville play the characters. In spite of living in a large city, women in Georgian Britain had very few prospects, which is why we think the show is secretly pro-feminist.

These rival madams have to deal with one another but they must also combat a moralistic movement that exposes them to unexpected police operations and evangelists who want to shut down their brothels. Before being discontinued by the streaming service in 2019, Harlots has three seasons.

Cast: Lesley Manville · Lydia Quigley ; Kate Fleetwood · Nancy Birch ; Holli Dempsey

It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia (2005) 

Synopsis: It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, one of the biggest sleeper hits in contemporary television history, debuted back in 2005. Rob McElhenny, the series’s co-creator, has revealed that he has started scripting the fifteenth  season of the program. This boisterous comedy, which stars McElhenny, Charlie Day, Kaitlin Olson, Glenn Howerton, and Danny DeVito as five ne’er-do-wells who own a barely profitable local bar in South Philadelphia, is renowned for its raunchy humor and ability to convey true moments of sensitivity and friendship. On Hulu, all 14 seasons are currently streaming.

Justified (2010) 

Synopsis: If you’re thinking about the best series on Hulu, FX’s lawman show based on an Elmore Leonard figure might not be the first thing that comes to mind, but anybody who watched it in its original six-season span from 2010 to 2015 will probably be nodding in approval at this stage. Both Timothy Olyphant as Deputy US Marshal Raylan Givens and Walton Goggins as Boyd Crowder make significant contributions to the drama Justified.

A drama that already features a diverse cast of characters and sharp, witty conversation gains a further unique dimension by taking place in the uncommonly shown state of Kentucky. Over the course of its run, Justified received a huge following on FX and received eight nominations for primetime Emmys. However, Justified is always a great drama yet to be discovered by new series lovers.

Ramy (2019) 

Synopsis: The Handmaid’s Tale, a gripping dystopian thriller, has been Hulu’s signature original show for a number of years. But one of the newest Hulu programs, Ramy, which stars actor and stand-up comedian Ramy Youssef, is starting to win comparable distinctions.

The central conflict of this Muslim-American sitcom is the struggles of the main character, a first-generation American born to Egyptian immigrants, to find his place in both his family’s conventional traditions and the society of the New Jersey millennials he is enveloped by. This challenge is depicted in a sitcom that feels unlike any other show on television with considerable depth and humor.
