May 2019 is going to be a huge month for Netflix original content — and it had damn well better be, in light of the fact that the world’s top streaming entertainment service is raising all of its subscription prices this month. There’s always some blowback when prices increase, of course, but most subscribers seem happy to pay the newly raised rates, which will be Netflix’s biggest price hike ever. The company’s most popular plan will get the most substantial increase, an 18% jump from $10.99 to $12.99. The basic plan will climb to $8.99 from $7.99, and the premium plan that includes 4K streaming will go from $13.99 to $15.99.

Those are some hefty price jumps, so Netflix has a big month planned in an effort to help ease the pain. Where third-party content is concerned, tons of popular titles are set to be added to Netflix’s content catalog. Highlights include two Austin Powers movies, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Scarface, Scream, Wedding Crashers, Zombieland, and all three movies from The Matrix trilogy. That’s all well and good, but everyone is far more interested in seeing the new Netflix originals that are set to debut in May.

A whopping 62 different original shows, movies, and specials are coming to Netflix this month, and that’s the highest tally of 2019 so far. The action starts right on day 1 with Knock Down The House, a documentary that follows Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and three other young female politicians as they sought to shake up the status quo in the 2018 Congressional elections. Then this Friday, May 3rd, 12 different Netflix originals will debut, including the first season of Dead To Me, a dark comedy starring Christina Applegate.
