What's New on Netflix in May

To help you anticipate and navigate all that Netflix has to offer, TVLine presents this comprehensive list of all the TV series, movies, documentaries and specials making their debut on the streaming service this month — all as a 100-percent free supplement to our daily and handy What to Watch and weekly TVLine-Up columns.

Among the Netflix TV shows this month, you have the second season of Dead to Me, a Bandersnatch-esque Kimmy Schmidt special, Ryan Murphy’s ode to the Golden Age of Hollywood and a Space Force satire captained by Steve Carrell. In addition, you’ll find new stand-up comedy specials headlined by Jerry Seinfeld, Patton Oswalt and Hannah Gadsby.

Also arriving on the service are the most recent seasons of The CW’s Charmed, Dynasty, The Flash and Riverdale, as well as ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy.

Among Netflix movies in May are The Lovebirds, a comedy about a couple (played by Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani) who, on the brink of breaking up, get embroiled in a bizarre murder mystery; and The Wrong Missy, another comedy from the Happy Madison team about a man (David Spade) who texts the wrong woman to accompany him on a work retreat.

NOTE: “Netflix Original” is how the streaming service denotes any series that it has A) has commissioned and produced for itself, B) secured exclusive international streaming rights for, C) co-produced with another network, or D) “saved” in the wake of cancellation elsewhere (e.g. Lucifer).
