'Catch-22' (May 17)

Hulu's six-episode adaptation of "Catch-22," Joseph Heller's seminal novel, examines the pointlessness of war, as experienced by the protagonist of the story, Yossarian (Christopher Abbott), a U.S. Air Force bombardier in World War II. He's subject to the titular "catch," a hilariously sinister bureaucratic rule that states a pilot can only avoid a mission if he claims insanity. But by claiming insanity. Unfortunately, by asking to be grounded, the pilot actually proves his sanity.



'Fleabag' Season 2 (May 17)

Phoebe Waller-Bridge returns to write and star in her darkly comedic Amazon series. The six episodes are a capstone to the tale of a dry-witted, angry, grieving woman with a penchant for ruining relationships.
