The best documentaries on Hulu right now (September 2022)

Did you get your driver’s license last week, like we always talked about? If not, it might be a good time to watch Olivia Rodrigo’s documentary on Hulu, spotlighting the emerging star following her smash-hit debut album. It’s not so brutal out there for documentary lovers on the streaming service, with award winners, originals, and a fascinating documentary about the collapse of Enron, which is still reverberating in the business world decades after the fact. For more picks, take a look at the best documentaries on Hulu this month.

And while you’re here, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the Disney Bundle, which gets you Hulu, Disney+, and ESPN+ for just $14 a month. That’s basically the same price for two of the services, only you’re getting the third one gratis. Sweet.

If Hulu doesn’t have what you’re looking for, we’ve also rounded up the best documentaries on Amazon Prime Video and the best documentaries on Netflix.

At Oakland High School in Oakland, California, the senior class of 2020 was not just faced with the COVID-19 pandemic. They weren’t just faced with the George Floyd protests, either. They had to deal with all that, as well as the circumstances unique to their own situation in a city where crime is high, health care is non-existent, and the public school system isn’t always adequately prepared to usher students along their life journeys. Director Peter Nicks documents the heartbreak the students suffer through each day of their final year, from seeing a pandemic upend their worlds to some troubles they still would have gone through even if the world didn’t change in March 2020. While there is a certain sense of sadness seeing the things these students would never experience, it’s hard not to be left with a sense of hope about how hard teenagers are fighting to overcome the myriad of adversity they face every day.
