The May List for New Netflix Content is Here and We Can’t Wait


It’s almost May (if you can believe it) so not only does that mean nicer weather for us in the U.S., we’ve got more shows and movies on Netflix to get excited for!

May is looking like a busy month for Netflix. Plenty of original shows are on the way, and more great movies will be accessible with just the click of a button.

There’s some great new comedy specials on the way, featuring the hilarious styles of Maria Bamford, Tracy Morgan, and Norm MacDonald, but we’ll also say hello to classic movies like Forrest Gump, The Break-Up, and Inglourious Basterds. Not to mention there’s more Netflix original movies coming too!

Here’s some of the TV shows we just can’t wait to see.

Master of None Season 2 – May 12

Aziz Ansari is back with his hilarious self-insert character Dev, who has had to wheedle his way through life as a New York City actor. Now, the series begins anew as Dev takes on Italy while trying to find his place in the world.

Riverdale Season 1 – May 18

The Archie comics are re-imagined in this CW hit show. But don’t let the name fool you, it’s not as lighthearted as the comic it’s based on. It’s more like a mesh between Stranger Things and Twin Peaks from what I can tell. We’re always here for a good thriller with an ensemble cast, so this may be one to catch as soon as it’s available for streaming.

Bloodline Season 3 – May 26

It’s time to say goodbye to this Netflix original series. Bloodline follows the wealthy Floridian Rayburn family, whose dark past secrets continue to bubble up, causing chaos at every turn. This psychological thriller had a stunning run, and hopefully will go out with a bang. Or a drowning, as this trailer shows us. Chilling.

House of Cards – May 30

The hit political drama is back. Season 5 of House of Cards premiers towards the end of the month, but this is one we can’t wait for. President Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) and First lady Claire Underwood (Robin Wright) have to work on solidifying their relationship in order to stay on top.

There’s an interesting theory provided by Reddit that this may be the last season. We’ve already seen 52 episodes (the same number in a deck of cards), and an entire house has to crumble at some point. President Underwood has wormed his way out of plenty of tight spots, but how much longer can that go?
