Hulu is ready to get their 2018 television season underway after recently announcing four series premiere dates and who can blame them? Their critically acclaimed series The Handmaid’s Tale is still fresh off it’s huge Emmy win for Outstanding Drama Series and viewers have been anxiously awaiting for Aaron Paul’s cult drama The Path to return for its third season.
On top of those two Hulu staples, the streaming service also released premiere dates for two new original series, The Looming Tower and Hard Sun. So, it looks like 2018 is already shaping up to be a great year for what once was just a website designed to house already aired television episodes.
Check out the shows and premiere dates below!

Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
