Every month, Netflix cleans out its metaphorical closet only to fill it up again with shiny new items. For every show or movie vanishing from the streaming service, another will arrive to take its place. And these 11 Netflix originals premiering in May are some that you won't want to miss. They span vastly different genres and cover all kinds of themes, so there should be something for every member of the audience to enjoy.
Those interested in true crime will be able to find something to watch next month, with shows and films that explore memorable cases from decades past. But if you're a horror fan who'd prefer something less grounded in reality, there are are quite a few strange and inventive projects on offer, too. And if you'd rather not take a walk on the dark side, then you can indulge in any number of romantic comedies instead. Whatever your mood is this spring, Netflix will do its best to match it.
These aren't all of the movies and series joining the streaming service in May, so be prepared for an even greater influx of content over the next few weeks. These 11 Netflix originals are just some things you might want to keep an eye out for.
