September is a strong month for the Disney-owned streaming service Hulu. A solid mix of original content is marked with the return of a sitcom impresario in “Modern Family” creator Steven Levitan and his new show “Reboot.” On top of that, there’s a bevy of new films being added to the service, including Ridley Scott’s “The Last Duel” that should fill the time with kids returning to school. We’re breaking down all the new shows and movies you’ll be able to watch in September on Hulu.
The main one is the aforementioned “Reboot,” created by Steven Levitan. The show follows a showrunner (played by “Crazy Ex Girlfriend’s” Rachel Bloom) who pitches a reboot of the 2000s-era sitcom “Step Right Up.” Unfortunately, her plans for the reboot are fraught with issues, including an acrimonious lead couple (Judy Greer and Keegan-Michael Key) and another with legal issues (Johnny Knoxville).
The trailer for the series looks like a fun mash-up of 2000s-era nostalgia—no doubt there will be some sly digs at Levitan’s “Modern Family”—as well as some commentary on why shows like this have changed in the last 20 years. “WandaVision” did a pretty solid retread of “Modern Family’s” style and half the fun of “Reboot” will no doubt be glimpses at the original series. The cast alone makes this worthy of a watch. Who doesn’t want to see Judy Greer in sitcom mom mode? The first three episodes will drop on September 20, going weekly from there.
Here’s what other television is premiering in September on Hulu.
