Summer themes abound in Netflix's new batch of comedy, drama and reality originals, which will drop alongside a slew of big- and small-screen favorites throughout the month.
Women lead a number of May's most anticipated new originals, including Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini's black comedy series Dead to Me; Ali Wong and Tiffany Haddish's animated series Tuca & Bertie; and Amy Poehler's vacation comedy Wine Country. Knock Down the House, the 2018 midterm political doc featuring Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, is also slated to premiere this month.
Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, the Ted Bundy drama starring Zac Efron and Lily Collins, will start streaming on May 3, while Wanda Sykes' new comedy special, Wanda Sykes: Not Normal, will release on May 21.
On the TV side, the fourth season of the former Fox series Lucifer will drop this month, along with the third season of the Dave Franco-led ensemble drama Easy and the first season of Netflix's new physical game show Flinch. Among the other expected releases are the second season of Spike Lee's She's Gotta Have It (May 24) and When They See Us, the four-part limited series about the Central Park Five from director Ava DuVernay (May 31).
The Matrix trilogy also joins the streaming library, alongside other fan favorites and award winners such as Scarface, Gremlins, John & Yoko: Above Us Only Sky, Oscar winner Moonlight and My Week With Marilyn. The third season of Riverdale and first two seasons of Outlander are among the streamer's newly added nonoriginal TV series.
