If Netflix’s new anti-password sharing update is making you switch streaming platforms (because same), it’s a good thing that Hulu’s got a bunch of amazing shows to watch. Whether you’re into sitcoms, comedies, reality TV or dramas, there’s something binge-worthy for everyone. Here are five of the best Hulu shows right now.

Abbott Elementary

For fans of mockumentaries like The Office and Parks of Recreation, I present to you… Abbott Elementary! This is one of the best shows on Hulu right now and it’s got a few Golden Globes to prove it. Abbott Elementary is about a group of teachers and how they navigate teaching in a Philadelphia elementary school. It’s comedic, packed with pop culture references and has a top-tier cast. Not to mention all of the hilarious times that a character looks straight at the camera. If you happen to be a teacher or are studying education, then you will particularly appreciate how authentically it highlights the reality of inner-city public education.

Only Murders in the Building

If your favorite pastimes are watching true crime and laughing, then you’re in luck because Only Murders in the Building is the perfect blend of that. A lot of the show takes place in a luxurious apartment complex in New York City where a lot of stuff goes down, like murder. Three unlikely characters come together to try and solve the crimes that happen where they live, deciding to make a podcast about it called Only Murders in the Building. It’s so entertaining and plain hilarious at times. To be honest, I don’t usually laugh that hard from watching TV, but the antics on this show had me cackling. Plus, it’s got a stellar lead cast including Selena Gomez.

Love Island

For the reality TV lovers out there (even if you just watch it ironically), Love Island is one of the best shows on Hulu. This dating show has a bunch of singles living under one luxurious roof in the summertime, so you can just imagine all the wild drama and sizzling romance that goes down. Not to mention, Hulu even has the UK and Australia versions of the show and FYI, the accents totally make the watching experience even more entertaining and fun.

Schitt’s Creek

If you’ve watched every season of Modern Family, New Girl and Friends like I have, you probably know you can hardly ever go wrong with a sitcom. And Schitt’s Creek is a great one. It’s about this crazy rich, bougie family of four who lose all of their money and hav to move to a small town in the middle of nowhere. Hashtag humbled. It has a hilarious plot line and an amazing cast, and Hulu having all six seasons makes the show super binge-able.

The Dropout

For fans of drama TV series, the limited series The Dropout is a perfect binge-worthy option. It’s about the real-life story of the lying girl boss Elizabeth Holmes who was the CEO of a multi-million dollar medical company. What is crazy about her story is that the technology behind the company didn’t actually work, so they were a total scam and lied to millions of people. It’s an unbelievably crazy story and the show tells it really well. AND it stars Amanda Seyfried. (That alone should sell you!)
