So, let’s get to it. Below, let’s take a look at my romantic recommendations for Hulu October 2018, each with the synopsis, rating, and the Hulu release date. And then at the bottom, I’ve included a list of bonus recommendations for Hulu in October – some of which are not romances.

Hulu Synopsis: A vast international plot explodes when a beautiful Jane Doe is discovered naked in Times Square, completely covered in mysterious, intricate tattoos with no memory of who she is or how she got there. But there’s one tattoo that is impossible to miss: the name of FBI agent Kurt Weller, emblazoned across her back. “Jane,” Agent Weller and the rest of the FBI quickly realize that each mark on her body is a crime to solve, leading them closer to the truth about her identity and the mysteries to be revealed.

Elena's Ghost (El Fantasma De Elena); Top 10 of the Best Romances New to Hulu October 2018

IMDB Synopsis: Young and beautiful, Elena and her widowed father, Tomas manage a small but excellent hotel on the ocean shore in Key West. Raised in her father’s shadow and shielded from the maternal side of her family, Elena has never known true love. That is until she finds Eduardo unconscious in the middle of the forest, and Elena falls hopelessly in love as she nurses him back to health. The rich, young businessman is equally passionate, and they’re married in an impromptu ceremony on the beach.

Elena joins Eduardo in his mansion, where he resides with several family members and household staff. From a photograph, Elena learns about Eduardo’s deceased wife, also named Elena, who died in a tragic accident on her wedding day. The new bride isn’t given the warmest of welcomes to the castle, but it’s the screams and moans coming from the castle’s tower that most terrify Elena. Additionally, she begins to find out that her husband and his brothers belong to this mythological race, which hides many secrets and conspiracies.

The twists and turns of the ocean-front locale mirror a storyline intertwined with secret loves, unusual characters and a mysterious aura. Kico spins a web of mystery and chance until we discover the secret behind Elena’s Ghost.
