The ins and outs at Netflix can be enough to make you cry, whether with joy or sadness depends on how you look at it.

To start with the bad news and that so you have plenty of time to say goodbye, you have very little time to watch all three Jaws movies as they’ll be taking their leave just in time for summer.

Jaws, Jaws 2, Jaws 3, and Jaws the Revenge uncover the worst about beach season, so catch them before the temperature rises or by May 1 when they swim for distant shores.

While talking about franchises, A whole lot of James Bond is also disappearing from the streaming service including Dr. No, For Your Eyes Only, From Russia with Love, Goldeneye, License to Kill, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, Thunderball, and Tomorrow Never Dies. No more 007 on Netflix!

If love stories are your thing, you’re running out of time to see Sixteen Candles, Chocolat, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Sliding Doors, The Notebook, and The English Patient. All of these great movies leave Netflix on May 1.

Speaking of summer, I Know What You Did Last Summer is another aptly themed flick leaving the service.

When it comes to Television, Switched at Birth Seasons 1-5 are lifting off of Netflix, but there will be a lot more coming in their place.

As to what’s coming to Netflix, it’s nothing but good news and a lot of it.

Netflix Originals you must see include Zac Efron’s turn as Ted Bundy in Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile which hits the service on May 3. This will pair nicely with the Netflix Original series, Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes.

Saved by Netflix, Lucifer Season 4 arrives May 8 with promises of a very sexy new look and the addition of Eve, as in Adam and Eve.

May 10 brings a lot of new series, including The Society, a modern-day take on The Lord of the Flies. It’s a lot deeper than you’d imagine and well-worth the watch.

On May 17, the return of the popular post-apocalyptic series The Rain arrives, and on May 21 Wanda Sykes: Not Normal premieres so you can tickle your funny bone.

The third season of the anthology horror series Slasher returns with Slasher: Solstice on May 23, and on May 24 She’s Gotta Have It Season 2 drops while Rene Zellweger’s first TV series What/If joins it.

And one of the most anticipated dramas, When They See Us from Ava DuVernay arrives on Netflix to tell the true story of five Harlem teens wrongly accused of a Central Park rape in 1989.

When you’re done with the Netflix Originals, make room for more acquisitions!

Subscribers get a replacement for 007! Austin Powers, Goldmember has been hanging out all by himself on Netflix, but the first two flicks, Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery and Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me join to make it a very fun trio.

Another franchise getting in on the excitement is The Matrix starring Keanu Reeves as the savior of mankind. The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded, and The Matrix: Revolutions all arrive on the first.

Series news brings Outlander Seasons 1 and 2 to the streamer so that those who steadfastly refuse to find the TV adaptation of their favorite novels can finally see the love.

Roswell, New Mexico just finished up its first season on The CW, and you can binge it in its entirety beginning on May 1. Be on the lookout for other seasons of shows from The CW to come later in the month as the turnover from broadcast to Netflix is relatively nonexistent. Those include Arrow, The Flash, Riverdale, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl, Supernatural, and Charmed.

Fans of the thrilling futuristic nightmare that is Colony finally get a chance to see it to the end. Unfortunately, after Colony Season 3, there is no more, so enjoy!
