New on Netflix May: Spring cleaning? Try spring streaming…

New-on-Netflix-May

Brad Pitt, Topher Grace, and Emory Cohen star in the Netflix Original War Machine which was inspired by a true story.

Unfortunately, we’re a bit late with our Netflix May list but better late than never, right? As a reminder shows that are coming to the U.S. only will be marked with (US), and likewise for shows coming to Canada (CA) only. If a show or movie isn’t marked with either US or CA, it will be coming to both services. Netflix has been kind enough to indicate which shows are available to view offline as well, which we’ve indicated by marking them with  after the title.

Before we get started, check out the Netflix May sizzle reel for the U.S.:

…and Canada.

Unfortunately, we’ve been busier than normal here at Techaeris so this month will be a condensed list — hopefully we’ll be back to our regular format next month! Without further ado, check out what’s coming to Netflix U.S. and Netflix Canada in May.
