What’s new on Netflix and what movies and shows are leaving in May 2019

Netflix is offering a cornucopia of new streaming options for subscribers to enjoy in the comfort of their homes or on their mobile device of choice this May. From original shows to top-notch films, Netflix has a massive number of compelling offerings lined up. Read on for all the highlights, then scroll down for a full list of what’s new on Netflix.

Several popular house-produced projects debut this month, including stand-up comedy special Wanda Sykes: Not Normal, campaign documentary Knock Down the House, the original film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, the fourth season of newly acquired series Lucifer, and the third season of Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj .

The streaming giant also has a wealth of entertaining films and series not produced in-house on tap this month, including The Matrix trilogy, the first two seasons of Outlander, and the third season of Riverdale.

Our top picks for May

Knock Down the House

The 2018 U.S. elections had the highest voter turnout of any midterm elections since 1914, and the “blue wave” resulted in several electoral firsts for women, racial minorities, and LGBT candidates. This documentary follows four female candidates in that election — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Amy Vilela, Cori Bush, and Paula Jean Swearengin — as they each mount grass-roots campaigns during one of the most polarizing political periods in modern U.S. history.

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile

Zac Efron portrays charismatic serial killer Ted Bundy in this film, which is told from the point of view of Elizabeth Kloepfer, Bundy’s longtime girlfriend, played by Lily Collins. Kloepfer struggles to reconcile the seemingly well-meaning family man that she knows with the cold-blooded killer portrayed by the media. Bundy was accused of murdering at least 30 women and girls between 1974 and 1978.

Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj: Volume 3

Comedian, writer, and former The Daily Show correspondent Hasan Minhaj returns for a third season of his Peabody Award-winning series that explores global events, politics, and popular culture through a comedic lens. The series earned widespread acclaim when it premiered in October 2018, and its first 13 episodes garnered critical praise for Minhaj’s unique perspective and explanation of complicated topics.

As usual, May is your last chance to watch a variety of shows and movies before they leave Netflix. Be sure to catch 2009’s dark superhero film Watchmen, 1996 comedy The Birdcage, and all four Jaws movies before they disappear.

Below is the full list of everything new coming to the streamer in the month of May, and everything going away. The boldface names signify more of our favorites to help you load up your binge queue.
