So, you’ve got through everything in your watchlist, and as your browse through the Netflix menu it is starting to feel a bit stale. Fear not! May means all new films and shows coming to the streaming platform.

Here are the 5 new Netflix original films and the 5 new Netflix original series that we are most excited about in May 2019, plus a full list of everything that is coming to Netflix this May.


Knock Down the House (2 May)

This documentary film follows the careers of some of the most compelling young female Congress women currently making a difference. It looks at how a young bartender in the Bronx, a coal miner’s daughter in West Virginia, a grieving mother in Nevada and a registered nurse in Missouri challenged powerful Congress incumbents to deliver some of the most shocking political upsets in history.

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (3 May)

Unexpectedly starring Zac Efron as Ted Bundy himself, the film chronicles the crimes of Bundy from the perspective of his long term girlfriend, played by Lily Collins, who refused to accept the truth about him for years. Not only does the film look into the mind of one of the world’s most notorious serial killers, but also at how many people manage to blind themselves to shocking truths.

Wine Country (10 May)

Starring real life SNL friends Amy Poehler (who also makes her directorial debut), Maya Rudolph, Rachel Dratch, Ana Gasteyer, Paula Pell and Emily Spivey, the film follows a group of friends that head out to make a 50th birthday. It feels a little bit like it will be a female equivalent of The Hangover, with wine as the beverage of choice for lubricating antics. Tina Fey also makes a cameo.

See You Yesterday (17 May)

Basically, two teenagers (played by Eden Duncan-Smith and Danté Crichlow), who also happen to be science prodigies, build a pair of time machines and then use them to try and save CJ’s (Duncan-Smith’s) brother, who was killed in an altercation with police. We are excited about this because it is the directorial debut from Spike Lee’s prodigy Stefon Bristol, who also wrote the film, so it is sure to be smart and funny.

The Perfection (24 May)

Starring Allison Williams of Girls fame, she plays a troubled musical prodigy named Charlotte, who is forced to leave her elite school. When a new star pupil, Elizabeth (Logan Browning), emerges, she reaches out to them. But the results take the girls down a disturbing path. The resulting smart horror is full of sly dark humour and hard-earned scares.


Dead to Me (3 May)

This dark comedy series stars Christina Applegate and Lina Cardellini as a tightly would widow and a free spirit with a shocking secret that form an unlikely friendship. Applegate’s character Jen loses her husband in a hit and run car accident and must navigate the unwanted sympathy while trying to find the culprit. This dark twist on the grieving process works thanks to some outstanding performances from the leading ladies, and some pretty unpredictable twists.

Undercover (3 May)

Inspired by real events, this Dutch show follows two undercover agents, played by Frank Lammers and Anna Drijver, who pose as a couple at a campground in order to infiltrate a drug kingpin’s operation. This is Netflix’s first Dutch-language series and promises a binge worthy 10 episodes.

Abyss (6 May)

This Korean fantasy drama tells the story of two dead people brought back to life by a soul-reviving marble called ‘Abyss’. But the leading duo, played by Park Bo-Young (Strong Girl Bong-Soon and Oh My Ghost) and Ahn Hyo-Seop, are brought back with different appearances that turn the lives that they knew on their head. The two must also solve the mystery of the deaths, and return.

The Society (10 May)

Think Lord of the Flies meets Gossip Girl and you probably have the premise of The Society. A group of teens are mysteriously transported to a facsimile of their wealthy New England town without their parents. While they enjoy their freedom at first, things quickly start to get out of hand. Starring Kathryn Newton, Gideon Adlon, Sierra Burgess and Kristine Froseth.

When They See Us (31 May)

This criminal drama series documents the Central Parks jogger case from 1989 in which a jogger was attacked and raped in New York’s Central Park. Five youths, four African American and one Hispanic, were convicted for the crime, but their conviction was later overturned in 2002. What happened. The show has a powerful cast including Vera Farmiga, Felicity Huffman and Famke Janssen, plus Jharrel Jerome, Jovan Adepo, Chris Chalk, Freddy Miyares and Justin Cunningham as the youths.
