New on Netflix May 2018

New-on-Netflix-May-2018

Netflix has plenty of Netflix Original Series, Original Films, Original Comedies, and more to keep you watching in May.

The New on Netflix May list is now out and includes plenty of Netflix Original Series and films to keep you busy, including Cargo starring Martin Freeman about a man and his infant daughter who are stranded in the middle of a zombie apocalypse in rural Australia.

Ages ago, we ran separate Netflix and Netflix Canada lists and then made the choice to combine them due to similar crossover. However, due to the amount of extra time we spend on a monthly basis cross-referencing two lists, we’re thinking of going back to the separate lists. While there was also some crossover, once you got past the Netflix Originals, the selection between the two services varies quite a bit. Let us know in the comments below which format you prefer!

Before we get started, check out the Netflix May 2018 sizzle reel:

Without further ado, check out what’s coming to (and leaving) Netflix in May. If you’re in Canada, check out the New on Netflix Canada May 2018 list!
