If you stayed with Hulu even after they increased the price of Hulu (No Ads) by 20% on October 2023, then you probably thought you made the right choice when they released the spectacular 2024 adaptation of Shōgun.

But what’s left to watch on Hulu now that Shōgun is over? They canceled This Fool and Death And Other Details, and you can only rewatch What We Do in The Shadows so many times before Colin Robinson sucks you dry.

Perhaps it’s time to cancel your Hulu Subscription. You can always resubscribe on Black Friday for a massive discount anyway. If this is your game plan, then let us guide you in canceling your Hulu Subscription.
