Best Netflix Movies and Series

Are you looking for what to watch on Netflix? We’ve got you covered. Netflix adds brand new movies and series to watch every single month, and we’ve rounded them all up in our guide on what to watch on Netflix. Every month, we’ll add all the new Netflix releases, from originals to licensed content.

Netflix has been facing more and more competition from the likes of Disney, HBO, Peacock, and more. That means that it has to fight for your subscription. As a result, expect the company to produce more and more high-quality content over the next few months and years.

Finding the best movies and series on Netflix can be a challenge, but you can find everything right here. We’ll also highlight some of the best movies and series on Netflix every month. Here are the new releases on Netflix.

What to watch on Netflix | Top movies and series for May 2022

Operation Mincemeat

  • Operation Mincemeat is the extraordinary story of two intelligence officers that changed the course of World War II, saving tens of thousands of lives and breaking Hitler’s deadly grip on Europe, by recruiting the skills of the most unlikely of secret agents: a dead man.

The Pentaverate

  • What if a secret society of five men has been working to influence world events for the greater good since the Black Plague of 1347? As this new series begins, one unlikely Canadian journalist finds himself embroiled in a mission to uncover the truth and just possibly save the world himself. Remember, the Pentaverate must never be exposed!

Stranger Things 4: Volume 1

  • It’s been six months since the Battle of Starcourt, which brought terror and destruction to Hawkins. Struggling with the aftermath, our group of friends are separated for the first time – and navigating the complexities of high school hasn’t made things any easier. In this most vulnerable time, a new and horrifying supernatural threat surfaces, presenting a gruesome mystery that, if solved, might finally put an end to the horrors of the Upside Down.

Welcome to Eden

  • Are you happy? With this question Zoa and four young, attractive and social media active boys and girls are invited to the most exclusive party in history, set in a secret island and organized by the brand of a new drink. What starts as an exciting adventure will soon turn into the trip of their lives. But paradise is not really what it seems… Welcome to Eden.
