December is already half gone, and January is not far away. A new month ahead also means a whole new slate of shows and movies to watch on Hulu. Some of that content will be available on January 1, while other shows and movies will be available a little later next month.
If awkward and dark comedies are your thing, you should consider The Drop on January 13. The movie, coming from producers Jay and Mark Duplass, stars Anna Konkle (Pen15).

Things only go downhill from there. The Drop is directed by Sarah Adina Smith and is co-written by Smith and Joshua Leonard. In addition to Konkle, the film’s cast includes Jermaine Fowler (Coming 2 America), Jillian Bell (Brittany Run a Marathon), Utkarsh Ambudkar (Free Guy), Robin Thede (A Black Lady Sketch Show), Aparna Nancherla (Crashing), Joshua Leonard (The Blair Witch Project), Jennifer Lafleur (Nope), and Elisha Henig (The Sinner).

The 20-episode season continues the reboot pretty much exactly a full year after Season 1 came to the streaming service earlier this year. The offshoot picks up eight years after the events of the How I Met Your Mother finale, focusing on a new friend group consisting of Sophie (Younger’s Hilary Duff), Charlie (The Royals’ Tom Ainsley), Jesse (Veronica Mars’ Chris Lowell), Valentina (Grown-ish’s Francia Raisa), Ellen (Space Force‘s Tien Tran) and Sid (God Friended Me’s Suraj Sharma).
