Welcome to a very very early look at everything scheduled to come to Netflix throughout May 2020. This list will be updated throughout April and May 2020 with all the additions set to hit Netflix in the United States.
Netflix Originals continue to be a dominant part of the Netflix lineup and May is no different. There’s lots of new Netflix Originals to be excited for. Our top picks are Space Force, the new show from the creator and main star of NBC’s The Office. We’re also psyched for the limited series Hollywood due out on the first of the month. You can find an expanded look at the Netflix Originals coming in May here.
As always, not only will May 2020 see new releases, it’ll also see titles leave too.
Please note: this post is much earlier than usual as Netflix announces more titles in advance than normal. We’ll get a complete list towards the end of April 2020 and then regular updates throughout May too.
