Netflix’s list of new material available for streaming in May is flourishing, and it’ll make you feel more pampered than even the most verdant and luscious Spring foliage.
While it’s always difficult to say goodbye to titles that will be departing in the next month, you won’t be sad for long once you see the excellent lineup of Netflix Original programmes that will take their place.
Netflix’s eclectic and enjoyable May 2022 debuts are sure to offer something for everyone, with everything from brand new titles to long-awaited continuations of fan favourites.
Stranger Things, Love, Death & Robots, Workin’ Moms, and Who Killed Sara? are among the highly-anticipated new seasons of great series spanning multiple genres (so there’s certainly something for everyone) due to launch on the streaming service this month.
While continuations of more recognised titles dominate the list of May’s best series, there is still much to look forward to in terms of new shows streaming exclusively on Netflix beginning this month.
The best Netflix shows to watch In May 2022
Stranger Things Season 4 Volume 1 is the first volume of the fourth season of Stranger Things.
Watch! We didn’t believe anybody would be debating whether or not to watch Stranger Things, but we thought we’d include it just in case.
The long-awaited fourth season premieres on Netflix on May 27 with the first half of the season, and it’s fair to predict it’ll create a big sensation on social media, Netflix, and in general.
The Emmy Award-winning series “Ozark,” starring Jason Bateman and Laura Linney, depicts a couple who relocate to Missouri to start a money-laundering operation. This month, the series returns with its concluding episodes.
According to Entertainment Weekly’s Jeff Jensen, “Bateman’s commanding presence propels a riveting, twisting, occasionally flawed story that plays like ‘Breaking Bad’ in reverse.”
The Attorney for Abraham Lincoln
Watch! The Lincoln Lawyer is a title that you may be acquainted with if you’ve read the book and watched the 2011 film starring Matthew McConaughey.
On May 13, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo will reprise his role as Mickey Haller in a new series. The series stars Neve Campbell, Becki Newton, Christopher Gorham, and others, and is based on the Michael Connelly novel The Brass Verdict.
“Arcane” is an animated scientific fantasy adventure programme that chronicles the genesis tale of two of the popular video game “League of Legends“‘ playable champions.
The critically acclaimed ensemble voice acting cast is led by Hailee Steinfeld. On Rotten Tomatoes, the series has a pristine 100 per cent critic score and a 97 per cent audience score based on over 500 reviews as of January 4.
Tara Bennett highlighted in her Paste review that you didn’t have to be a fan of the video game to appreciate the series, writing: “Even if you have no intention of purchasing a gaming console, do yourself a favour and try Arcane.
It offers a more sophisticated tale and emotional resonance than many current live-action programmes.”
Season 2 of ‘Bling Empire’ ( 13 May )
Your favourite East Asian and East Asian-American socialites from Los Angeles are back with even more glitz, glitter, and drama.

However, despite the thrills and craziness represented on the reality show, the friends remain linked in their hearts by their love for one another and, of course, their unrivalled fashion and style.
