Every Show and Movie That’s Coming To (And Leaving) Netflix in May of 2017

Netflix has been on a tear of late with their original content, dropping a good bit of it each month. May 2017 is no different, as we’re getting a bunch of their original shows (like Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt season three, House of Cards, Sense8, Bloodline, and Master of None),  plus the release of several original films and comedy specials. The iconic 90s films Forrest Gump hits the service May 1,  along with 2009 hit Inglourious Basterds.

Several new documentaries are arriving this month, and we actually don’t get too much in the way of non-Netflix TV shows, but Dr. Strange and Southpaw are sure to be popular additions.

As far as what’s leaving, you’d better get your Jurassic Park fix while you can, as all three films are departing in May, as are all nine seasons of the hit TV show Scrubs.
