Here’s what’s coming to (and going from) Hulu this October


The CW’s Smallville has begun looking more and more like a trendsetter in recent years, with its low-budget, DC Comics-based model paving the way for the current dominance of superhero shows on TV. And even though the Superman prequel series was often imperfect, it did include a few hidden delights, including fun villain turns from Michael Rosenbaum and the hammily fantastic Jon Glover as the evil-hearted Luthor clan. Now, you can see the whole thing—meteor freaks, Brainiac, “The Blur,” and all—with Hulu bringing all ten seasons of the show to its streaming library next month, just in time for its 15th anniversary.


And if mid-2000s superhuman angst isn’t your speed, the service has also added a number of classic comedies to its October slate. Several Woody Allen movies (including Bananas and the recently lauded Midnight In Paris) are making the jump, along with the entirety of The Pink Panther franchise. Or, if you don’t feel like giving A Shot In The Dark a shot in the dark, you could always prep yourself for the upcoming Groundhog Day musical by rewatching Bill Murray and Harold Ramis’ endlessly repeatable masterpiece.

The full list of what’s coming to Hulu is below, with the list of what’s leaving below that. (Entries marked with *Showtime require a Showtime premium add-on to watch.)
