When it comes to Netflix’s release calendar each month, our readers are always interested mainly in two things. First, you guys always want to know about all of Netflix’s original content that’s set to premiere over the course of the month. Of course, that’s why we already gave you the full schedule of Netflix original movies and series that will be released in May 2020. Second, our readers want to know about all the new movies coming to Netflix each month, including Netflix originals as well as third-party flicks.

When it comes to original Netflix shows, movies, and specials, May 2020 is packed with very exciting new releases from start to finish. Hotly anticipated releases this month include the new interactive special Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Kimmy Vs. the ReverendMagic For Humans season 3, a new stand-up special from none other than Jerry Seinfeld, another stand-up special from Patton Oswalt, and the very eagerly awaited premiere of Space Force at the end of the month. Created by Greg Daniels (The Office, Parks and Recreation) the new show is inspired by Trump’s ridiculous space warfare branch of the military (yes, it’s actually a real thing) and it stars Steve Carell.

Moving along to focus solely on movies, there are 57 different Netflix original films and third-party movies arriving over the course of this month. In fact, 34 new movies have already been added to Netflix’s content catalog so far in May.

Uncut Gems is also coming to Netflix on May 25th, and Netflix subscribers can’t wait to see why so many people think Sandler was robbed at the Oscars this year.
