Howdy Netflix fans? All of you must be really excited to learn about new releases coming to Netflix in May 2016, right? Well, who is not?

Netflix is enjoying a stellar year this time in 2016. Having expanded to over 190 countries already, the streaming service is also working a lot to get new local content for different places. Not just that, the list of original titles coming to Netflix this year is way better than any time before.

It just does not end there. Despite some good TV shows including Doctor Who, TED Talks and a few others leaving Netflix, the streaming giants have compensated the loss by adding some other good titles, perfect for binge-watching.

The list of new titles coming to Netflix in May 2016 marks an overhaul as, for the first time, an original Netflix talk show is ready to begin on the streaming service. You can get more details in our post about Netflix Originals coming to Netflix in May 2016.

Just like every other month, we’ve compiled a list of new releases on Netflix US in May 2016. Here we present you the complete preview for this month.

TV Highlights

Netflix original Lady Dynamite is set to air on May 20.

There are only a few new additional TV series contents for the month of May on Netflix this term. Releasing on May 1 are all three seasons of Easy Living, a show started in 2009. Also, the first season of Lolirock is coming to Netflix US the same day.

The major highlight of the month is the first season of Lady Dynamite, a 13-episode Netflix original series that you’d not want to miss. Similarly, the final season of Hell on Wheels, an AMC’s show is also set to release on Netflix in May and the last season is probably the best you’d ever watch.

Other good television shows set to release on Netflix in May are the tenth season of American Dad and a the fifth season of Bady Daddy, an uprising television show in the United States.

Movie Highlights

The do-over on Netflix is set to premiere on May 27.

Netflix fans have always demanded good and latest television shows to come to streaming time and again and this is where Netflix has disappointed in the previous years. However, this year is different. A whole slew of good movies are coming to Netflix and in May, the list looks promising.

Jack Black’s 2015 blockbuster movie Goosebumps is probably the best movie for the month of May this year. Alfred Hitchcock’s To Catch a Thief, and the powerful satire Pleasantville are also a good watch in Netflix.

Some other new movie additions that you’d not want to miss are Sixteen Candles, Just Friends, The Replacements and the Nutty Professor.
