Coming to Netflix in May

Coming to Netflix in May

By Matt Fowler of IGN.com

Every month, we’ve noted how Netflix has slowly been taken over by its own original programming, leaving little to watch on the periphery – but this May takes that concept to a whole new level!

Not only are there dozens of new Netflix Original movies, documentaries, and shows that you likely didn’t even know were coming, but May marks big returns for several notable original shows like House of Cards, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Sense8, Master of None, Bloodline, F is for Family, and Chelsea. That’s right, all in one month.

Plus, on the movie front, there’s Marvel’s Doctor Strange, Inglourious Basterds, Forrest Gump, Chocolat, and The Host.
