While it seemed like the TV industry had turned its back on miniseries in the aughts, the genre has made a major comeback in recent years. And thank goodness, because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as sitting down and streaming a meaty miniseries in one sitting. These short-form shows tell a compelling story from start to finish in a single season — and the best part is, miniseries can be about anything. Need proof? Just take a look at our selection of the best miniseries currently streaming on Hulu, just one of the many streamers you have to choose from.
Whether you love twisty crime dramas like “The Act,” adaptations of Jane Austen novels like “Pride and Prejudice,” or twisty, or contemporary dramas that definitely need a season two — like “Little Fires Everywhere” — Hulu has a ton of limited series that you’re sure to love (and devour in record time). And they’re always adding more shows to their arsenal, like the upcoming Hulu miniseries, “The Patient,” starring Steve Carell and Domhnall Gleeson, which follows a homicidal man who abducts a therapist (Carell) and asks him to help overcome his urge to kill.
Sound good? Well, there’s more where that came from. Here are 16 miniseries to stream on Hulu.
