Here’s everything coming to Netflix in May 2022

There is a lot of great content coming to (and leaving) Netflix in May.

Netflix has a packed content calendar for May, with some great shows and movies for all ages. The streaming giant must be hoping for some of these to slow subscriber churn, which resulted in a 200k drop in subscribers so far this year.

This month has some solid additions, which is nice. It’s never a bad time for a Tom Hanks flick, so get your spirits uplifted with the unending optimism of Forrest Gump. Oh, and Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle is a gem as well.

Don’t forget to tune in for Season 5 of Outlander on May 10, and The Lincoln Lawyer gets its small screen debut on the 13th.

Oh, and Downton Abbey fans are going to want to do another binge-watch this month, as all six seasons leave Netflix at the end of May. You can keep watching after that if you have an Amazon Prime Video subscription, or one to Peacock.
