New on Netflix in May 2021: Everything coming and going

Netflix May 2021

Netflix hasn’t had an especially exciting first four months of the year, but there are a few big additions coming in May that might help the biggest streaming service on the planet steady itself. First up is Army of the Dead, an action movie about a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas directed by none other than Mr. Snyder Cut himself, Zack Snyder. Next month also see the return of popular originals like Castlevania, Lucifer, and Who Killed Sara?, as well as the debut of the superhero series Jupiter’s Legacy, which might give Netflix its own Avengers.
