What’s new on Netflix and what’s leaving in May 2017

whats new on netflix shows movies house of cards



As spring rains slowly subside, Netflix provides an excellent dose of original content this May to ease viewers into air-conditioning season.

The most-anticipated new content hitting Netflix in May is the fifth season of Emmy award-winning political drama House of Cards, which will become available to viewers just before the month is over. Netflix will also launch fresh episodes of comedies like Aziz Ansari’s Master of None, F is For Family, and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, as well as dramas like Sense8 and The Last Kingdom, giving viewers a wide variety of shows to pick through for their binge-watching pleasure.

In the realm of original films, the streaming giant offers War Machine — a film about a general sent to pick up the pieces from the war in the Middle East that stars Brad Pitt — and Handsome, a comedy about a Los Angeles police detective investigating a woman’s murder.

Non-original movies worth checking out this May include Quentin Tarantino’s bloody WWII drama Inglorious Basterds and Marvel’s Doctor Strange, both of which hit the service toward the end of the month.

Those looking for laughs have specials from many big-name comedians to choose from, with new Netflix-produced stand-up performances from famed funny people like Tracy Morgan, Sarah Silverman, Norm Macdonald and Maria Bamford all coming to the service.

As always, some great content will be leaving Netflix in May. Fans of Scrubs, Jurassic Park, and Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown series will want to watch them before they fade into the streaming ether.

Below is the full list of fresh content you can see this May, and what will be leaving Netflix for the time being:
