Published Apr 20, 2017Spring has finally sprung. The flowers are blooming, the sun is shining and you'll soon feel compelled to frolic in nature and take in all that the earth has to offer. But don't do that — stay inside and binge watch Netflix like the slovenly bum we all know you are. In May, the Canadian edition of the streaming service has an overwhelming amount of content to offer.
It's worth starting with Netflix's original series, as there are a ridiculous amount of returning hits. Most excitingly, Aziz Ansari will traverse Europe in the second season of Master of None (May 12).
Other Netflix originals set to return include Season 2 of The Last Kingdom (May 4), Season 2 of Sense8 (May 5), Season 3 of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (May 19), Season 3 of Bloodline (May 26), Season 2 of F Is for Family (May 30) and Season 5 of House of Cards (May 30). If you're craving more of that sweet sexy Archie, new episodes of Riverdale will continue to arrive on Fridays.
Of course, Netflix is also a burgeoning movie machine, and they've got plenty of original films set to drop. Titles this month include In the Shadow of Iris (May 1), Handsome: A Netflix Mystery Movie (May 5), Sahara (May 12), BLAME! (May 19) and War Machine (May 26). Mighty Boosh fans should also look out for Mindhorn on May 12 — the film stars the show's Julian Barratt.
You want some docs? Netflix has some damn docs. The company will drop The Mars Generation (May 5), Get Me Roger Stone (May 12), Laerte-se (May 19), Season 1 of The Keepers (May 19) and Joshua: Teenager vs. Superpower (May 26).
As always, Netflix has also plotted a killer list of standup comedy specials. Look for new material from Maria Bamford (May 2), Many NNa (May 5), Norm Macdonald (May 9), Tracy Morgan (May 16), Hasan Minhaj (May 23) and Sarah Silverman (May 30).
If your eyeballs haven't dried up and rolled back into your skull after watching all of that original content, there are plenty of other films hitting Netflix this month. They include Denial (May 3), Deepwater Horizon (May 10), Role Models (May 18), Magic Mike XXL (May 20), Moonlight (May 21), Silver Linings Playbook (May 21), San Andreas (May 22), The Eagle Huntress (May 22), The Girl with All the Gifts (May 25), Doctor Strange (May 30) and Chappie (May 31).
It's not all good news on the Netflix front, however, as we still have to say goodbye to some titles. Here's what's leaving the service: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (May 5), Searching for Suger Man (May 7), Resident Evil: Damnation (May 9), Blue Crush (May 11), Fast Times at Ridgemont High (May 11), Van Helsing (May 11), Safe House (May 15) and Boychoir (May 23).
