Just as the sun begins to peek out from behind the clouds and warm weather becomes a consistent presence rather than a nice surprise, Netflix decides to drop dozens of new original shows and movies on us. May looks to be one of the busiest months of the year for Netflix, so we’re all going to have to delay our plans to go outside.
While there are a few TV shows that deserve to be on this monthly top ten list (and are), the movies are actually just as interesting, if not more so, in the coming weeks. We have a zombie drama called Cargo starring Martin Freeman of The Office and The Hobbit, a techno-thriller about anonymity and hacking called Anon, and a bevy of third-party hits like Amelie, The Bourne Ultimatum, Coco and The 40-Year-Old Virgin.
There are also some comedy specials and TV shows that sneaked on to the list, but the fourth season of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is easily my personal most anticipated piece of content coming to Netflix in May:
- Amelie (May 1st)
- John Mulaney: Kid Gorgeous Live at Radio City (May 1st)
- The Bourne Ultimatum (May 1st)
- Anon (May 4th)
- Dear White People: Volume 2 (May 4th)
- The 40-Year-Old Virgin (May 16th)
- Cargo (May 18th)
- Tig Notaro Happy To Be Here (May 22)
- Coco (May 29th)
- Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Season 4 (May 30th)
Now that you’ve seen the best, be sure to take a look at the rest — here’s the full list of everything that will be added to Netflix’s catalog this month. And here’s the full list of everything that will be removed from Netflix in May, in case you want to watch these shows and movies before they expire.
