Hulu has a lot of traditional shows to offer, with the majority of them coming from channels like Fox and ABC. While there are tons of shows to choose from on this platform, we’ve selected some of the best series to watch. From strange plots to educational ones, here are five Hulu shows right now for October that are worth the binge. 

Top 5 Hulu Shows Right Now for October

1. American Horror Story NYC

With 11 seasons to its name, American Horror Story has yet again released an all-new season called American Horror Story: NYC. Any series that is crafted by the incredible Ryan Murphy is something people have to look forward to. Like all his other AHS creations, NYC takes on an interesting plot. 

NYC takes place in a setting in the 1980s, and the gist of this series is about a masked murderer on the loose whose targets are gay individuals. This brought upon terror in the gay community. 

A reporter named Gino Barelli takes matters into his own hands and conducts his own investigation in hopes of uncovering who the killer is. Along with Patrick Read, his boyfriend, and Adam, another gay man who is assisting the reporter since his roommate got abducted by the masked murderer. 

2. The Bear

Another hit show from Hulu is called The Bear. This is basically about a young chef who begins to take charge of his family’s Chicago-based sandwich shop. The great thing about this show is that it is binge-worthy, and the very reason why it is in the first place is because it is able to show the brutal realities of working in a kitchen. 

The Bear is so close to being realistically accurate that a former line cook wrote an entire review about it. 

3. Love, Victor

As society becomes more open to the LFBTQ+ community, more and more shows that talk about them are being aired on television and online streaming platforms. Love, Victor is a great show that promotes the identification of one’s sexual orientation. 

The synopsis of this show is about Victor, the protagonist, who is set on his journey to discover what his sexual orientation is. Viewers will be able to see the challenges of adjusting to an entirely new environment, all the while trying to deal with the struggles of discovering who he really is. 

4. Pose

For those who are fans of Rupaul’s Drag Race, they may find Pose to be their cup of tea as well. Pose is all about sharing the LGBTQ+ subculture of the African-American and Latino communities during the 1980s and 1990s. One sure way to confirm that this series will be worth the binge is that you will see that it is directed by none other than Ryan Murphy. 

Going back, Pose is inspired by real-life events that took place in the 1980s, specifically during the time when the AIDS Crisis was at its peak. Although the characters in the series itself are fictional, the inspiration behind them comes from iconic members of the LGBTQ+ community in the past. 

The show explores the various issues that the LGBTQ+ community faces on a daily basis, especially during a difficult time in the 80s and 90s when people were either close minded to the core. 

Such issues that viewers will be exposed to are rascism, homophobia, misogyny, transphobia, and the like. 

For viewers who want to know how the drag scene came to be, then this show is something they should add to their watchlist. 

5. Under the Banner of Heaven

For viewers who are used to consuming drama, crime, and mystery genres, Under the Banner of Heaven will surely take them on a rollercoaster ride. Starred by one of the most famous and multiple award-winning actors Hollywood has ever been graced with, Andrew Garfield, this show is set to expose the terrors of the Mormon Church (also referred to as the Latter-Day Saints).  

That is just the tip of the iceberg. The exciting thing about this show is that it is based on true events that were documented in a book. The book was titled Under The Banner of Heaven: A Story of Violent Faith and was written by Jon Krakuaer and published in 2003. 

The story of this series is about the murder of a Mormon mother and her baby, which is being investigated by a detective called Jeb Pyre. Pyre uncovers the sinister secrets of a church that claims to be operating under the authority of Christ. 

There are some really great shows on Hulu going into November. So give Netflix a break sometime and check it out!
