Hulu has announced a big wave of new shows and films arriving in September and we've rounded up some of the highlights of new arrivals as well as movies to catch before they leave Hulu forever!

So, get the popcorn out and put your feet up — for when the season hits, you're not going to want to leave the house for a while.

Look Who's Coming To Hulu In September:

1. Gotham - Season 3: Premieres September 20th

For those of you disappointed by the confused Batman v Superman film, Gotham faithfully depicts the Batman universe in intricate and new ways. The series had a few growing pains in the first season but came back stronger and more fierce in its second season with plenty of twists and turns. Expect some new villains introduced in Season 3 and the triumphant return as Cameron Monaghan as Jerome.

Check out the trailer for Season 3 below:

2. Brooklyn Nine-Nine - Season 4: Premieres September 21st

With one of the best comedy ensembles on TV at the moment, it was no surprise when the award-winning Brooklyn Nine-Nine was confirmed for another season. With the addition of Ken Marino as the new commissioner, Season 4 is set to be even more wildly hilarious.

Check out the best of the previous season below:

3. Empire - Season 3: Premieres September 21st

Easily one of the most flamboyant and over-the-top shows on TV right now, Empire is set to have a roaring return with answers to the big cliffhanger in Season 2. The new season will feature a few interesting new characters and will reportedly be inspired by The Godfather.

Based on the 1973 cult classic, this series will delve into the origin story of the devil-obliterating priest. The cast is headed by the legendary Geena Davis and if the trailer is anything to go by, this dark, psychological horror will have many twisted tricks up its sleeve.

5. Superstore - Season 2: Premieres September 23rd

The ensemble comedy set in the Cloud 9 superstore had some kinks to iron out in its first season, but showed enough potential to have some critics label it as the rightful heir to The Office as NBC's strongest workplace comedy.

4 Movies To Catch Before They Leave:

There's still time to catch these films leaving Hulu September 30th.

Disturbing Behavior

The 1998 teen-horror, starring a young James Marsden AND Katie Holmes, will soon be departing Hulu. If you've yet to see this underrated gem about teens undergoing strange transformations (no, not the usual sort) in a small country town, then make sure to grab it now. Expect hints of The Faculty, with some Twin Peaks and Freaks and Geeks thrown in for good measure.

Wicker Park

Early 2000s darling Josh Hartnett stars in this psychological thriller about an advertizing executive who becomes obsessed about tracking down a former love who he thinks he sees walking out of a cafe in Chicago. Cue mistaken identity, mystery and intrigue with none other than a pre-Inglorious Basterds Diane Kruger. Grab it quick.


The cult comedy that defines cult comedy. The infamously low-budget comedy Clerks, about two convenience store clerks who annoy customers and discuss movies, has since become a figurehead for a brand of 1990s stoner geekdom. Don't be fooled into thinking its black and white presentation is some kind of artistic point - director Kevin Smith simply couldn't afford a colorist. Catch this cultural comedy milestone now, while you can.

Beverly Hills Cop

Eddie Murphy is Axel Foley, a Detroit cop taking on crime in the 90210 after his friend is gunned down in front of him. Notably grittier than its sequels, Beverly Hills Cops is a tasty wedge of 1980's action, music and style. Missing Eddie Murphy in 2016? Well, make sure you don't miss him on Hulu.

What are you most looking forward to watching this fall?
