The Most-Searched Hulu Original Series, by State

Ross and Chandler might make us laugh, but June Osborne from The Handmaid’s Tale can start a revolution. Sure, Michael Scott and Dwight Schrute are cartoonish, but their antics aren’t anywhere as “insaney” as those of Dot, Wakko, and Yakko from Animaniacs. Classic TV shows might entice customers to sign up for a streaming service, but it’s the original series that keep us coming back, month after month.

To compete with the other entertainment giants, the streaming service Hulu began releasing original series back in 2011. Fast forward a decade later, and the service has produced a diverse lineup of heavy hitters. From laidback, animated comedies like Solar Opposites to controversial dramas like A Teacher, American viewers have plenty of hours of original content to consume.

Ever wonder if what’s on your TV is the same as your neighbors? The team at wondered something similar. We did our homework and discovered each state’s most-searched Hulu original series.

From East Coast to West Coast, these are the shows Americans tuned in to most.


The team at gathered a list of Hulu original television shows from their website. Next, we used the website analytics tool Semrush to collect the average monthly search volume of each Hulu original series. Finally, we used Google Trends to track the search volume for the ten most popular Hulu series in each state and the District of Columbia.
