Here’s Everything Coming to Netflix in May

By  | 

April is quickly coming to a close and for us TV show bingers, our sights are set on May. As always, Netflix has released their list of everything that’s coming to the streaming app next month. Personally, I’m still getting through 13 Reasons Why (who here is hooked? The music is especially good). That said, there are some shows and movies I’m definitely psyched about seeing in May. The biggest one I’m excited for is season 2 of the Netflix original, Master of None starring Aziz Ansari. Relatively new CW show Riverdale is also on the docket for Netflix, which I’m looking forward to finally finishing. And there’s definitely a buzz about the new House of Cards season finally hitting our TVs.

There are some fairly interesting documentaries coming as well, including I Am Jane Doe (about moms combating sex trafficking), They Call Us Monsters (regarding juvenile offenders being tried as adults), and A New High (about homeless people and drug addicts using mountain climbing as a means of recovery). Netflix is also getting some feel-good movies in like Forest Gump and Inglorious Basterds.

Scroll down to see the full list of shows and movies hitting your Netflix this May:
