In recent years, Hulu has caught up to streaming giant Netflix (Amazon Prime is on the rise, too). Both streaming platforms house tons of classic network television and a plethora of movies, but Hulu has been ramping things up in a new category lately: original series. 

For a while there, The Handmaid’s Tale was the crown jewel of Hulu. And while its awards and nominations and praise from TV tastemakers have kept it in the cultural zeitgeist, Hulu's other shows have made their own splash, too. From comedy to drama to original series based on true stories, the streaming service has gifted TV lovers with tons of new content to choose from. Shows like Difficult People and Harlots paved the way, and now, shows like The ActCastle Rock, and PEN15 are giving Hulu its own prestige content.

The realm of Hulu Originals is still expanding, but there's already plenty to celebrate. These are the 11 best Hulu original series.
