What’s Coming To Netflix This May?

There's a whole load of goodness coming our way

We can’t be the only people who get excited at the end of each month at the prospect of all the new bits being adding to streaming service Netflix come the new month? With COVID restrictions still high, it’s fair to say we’ve absolutely exhausted our Netflix accounts for another month, and so we’re excited at the idea of something new to sink our teeth into this May.

From gripping documentaries to light-hearted series’ there’s plenty for everyone to enjoy – here are just some of our faves.

Series’

Below Deck 

It’s trashy, and dramatic, just how we like it. Netflix is adding multiple seasons of American reality TV show Below Deck to their service. It follows the lives of young people living and working atop some of the most luxurious yachts in the world – expect lots of hooking up, arguments, and tears.

Master Of None S3

Following on from a rocky season 2. We’re hoping that season 3 of Master Of None will give us the answers we’re looking for, will Dev and Francesca get married? Will Dev move abroad? We’ll soon find out.

Selena: The Series 

A biographical drama following the story of Mexican-American singer Selena as she rises to fame, navigating the challenges that come along the way.

Jupiter’s Legacy 

Landing on the 7th of May, this hotly anticipated series based on a comic book series tells the story of the descendants of superheroes, living in the shadow of their legendary parents.
