Here’s another must-watch while fans are waiting for True Detective’s new season.


  • Though Hulu isn’t even close to having this many grand projects as Netflix, the streaming still has a lot to offer to its viewers, and one of the platform’s best shows has been unjustly overlooked for 2 years now.
  • Starring Andrew Garfield, the true crime series follows a detective whose inner world of personal beliefs is turned upside-down when he starts his own investigation of a brutal murder.
  • The show hasn’t been talked about much since its release back in 2022, but it still managed to garner positive reviews and an impressive score on Rotten Tomatoes.

In the world of Netflix’s domination over the whole streaming, Hulu still maintains its reputation of a platform that’s worth competing with. For quite some time already, the streaming’s latest grand installments like The Bear or Only Murders in the Building have been making viewers across the world stick to the small screens waiting for the stories to unfold even more.

With all the attention brought to Hulu’s ambitious projects, the viewers yet deprive themselves of some real hidden gems, and one of them, despite all the merits, was unfairly forgotten.

Starring Andrew Garfield, Sam Worthington and Daisy Edgar-Jones, Under the Banner of Heaven is Hulu’s 2022 miniseries following two detectives Jeb Pyre and Bill Taba who embark on an investigation of a brutal double homicide that has something to do with the Mormon community.

Having Garfield as its lead that portrays a man of a strong faith, the show gives quite a unique look at the detective’s personality who this time appears to be a determined professional, yet at the same time a loving and caring husband and father, something that is rarely seen in true crime series on modern TV.

Under the Banner of Heaven thus explores its main character’s inner crisis once he’s attached to the murder case where everything points to the Mormons’ significant role. Being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Pyre has to redefine for himself everything he’s believed in about the Mormon faith before some members of the community savagely killed a young woman and her newborn child.

Upon its quiet release back in 2022, the show yet made quite an impression landing a solid score of 86% from critics and 81% from the audience on Rotten Tomatoes.

Under the Banner of Heaven may become a perfect match for True Detective ’s fans who have yet to wait for a while before season 5 is finally dropped.
