Winter binge-watchers, prepare your blankets and hot cocoa. Hulu announced its mid-season slate on Wednesday, and the list is an exciting mix of old and new favorites. Check below to see the shows that will be lined up in your queue come 2017.

The Path (Jan. 25)
Aaron Paul heads back to the small screen for the second season of the drama about the fictional religion of Meyerism. This time around, the crew is struggling to make sense of Doctor Meyer’s “mysterious departure.” Eddie (Paul) has difficulty with his new, secular life and eventually discovers the truth about Meyer, while Sarah (Michelle Monaghan) joins Cal (Hugh Dancy) as Co-Guardian of The Light despite learning about his dark past, and the two attempt to atone for their wrongdoings.

The Mindy Project (Feb. 14)
Mindy and co. return for the second half of season 5, which is currently airing. Mindy (Mindy Kaling) must deal with being dumped by Ben (Bryan Greenberg), though a surprise twist gives her another chance to make amends. Morgan (Ike Barinholtz), Jeremy (Ed Weeks), Colette (Fortune Feimster), and even Jody (Garret Dillahunt) all return, too, for more hilairous hijinks.

Harlots (March 29)
Though Harlots is the new kid on the block, it’s tapped into one of TV’s most popular genres: the period piece. Set in 18th century London, the drama focuses on Margaret (Samantha Morton), a brothel owner and mother whose business comes under attack by a rival madam (Lesley Manville), forcing her to fight back no matter the consequences.

The Handmaid’s Tale (April)
Margaret Atwood’s best-selling novel gets the television treatment with this new adaptation starring Elisabeth Moss and Joseph Fiennes. The story takes place in the dystopian society of Gilead, where women are treated as property of the state. Offred (Moss), as one of the few remaining fertile women, is a Handmaid, and forced into sexual servitude as a means of repopulating the world. The show will follow Offred as she attempts to navigate the terrifying society of Gilead, and, more importantly, survive.

Casual (May 23)
The dramedy about a single guy moving in with his recently divorced sister is back for season 3. This time around, the trio deal with the consequences of Charles’ death and Valerie moving out, and attempt to establish a new normal.
