Honestly, I'm not sure which one of these I'm most excited for. At the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour in Los Angeles (ahem, in Beverly Hills), Hulu dropped a bunch of news on a bunch of shows, both new and old.

Let's break it down:

  • The Handmaid's Tale — which is smack in midst of its third season — has been renewed for for a four season. The drama (it sure as hell ain't a comedy) is up for 11 Emmy awards this September for Season 2.
  • The previously announced Wu-Tang: An American Saga is set to debut Sept. 4 with three episodes at the drop, and a new episode "every Wu-Wednesday." (Editor's note: Don't do that again, Hulu. Don't ever do that again.) Even if it's not great, the music is going to be killer. The gist: "Set in the early '90s New York at the height of the crack cocaine epidemic, the show tracks the Clan's formation, a vision of Bobby Diggs aka The RZA, who strives to unite a dozen young, black men that are torn between music and crime but eventually rise to become the unlikeliest of American success stories."
  • Amy Schumer will bring 10 episodes of Love, Beth to Hulu. She'll create, direct, write, executive produce and star in the series. It'll launch sometime in 2020.
  • Padma Lakshmi (of Top Chef fame, among other endeavors) leads The Untitled Padma Lakshmi Series. Which is a horrible name until you realize that just means it doesn't have a name yet. The 30-minute show "embraces culinary traditions from the first Americans to the latest arrivals alongside Padma's perspectives and personal connection to each story." It'll be filled all over the U.S.
  • Mahershala Ali is joining the second season of Ramy as a guest star in 2020. (You know him from True Detective, Moonlight and Greenbook, of course.) Ramy is the brainchild of first-generation Egyptian-American Ramy Youssef, who tells a loosely fictional story of himself and his spiritual journey.
  • Dollface (with Kat Dennings, Brenda Song, Shay. Mitchell and Esther Povitsky) will debut on Nov. 15.
  • Reprisal (with Abigail Spencer) launches with 10 episodes on Dec. 6. It "is a hyper-noir revenge tale following a relentless femme fatale who, after being left for dead, leads a vengeful campaign against a bombastic gang of gear heads."
  • Marvel's Runaways is back for Season 3 on Dec. 13.
  • Looking for Alaska — based on the John Green novel — drops eight episodes on Oct. 18.
