Whats Coming to Netflix UK in May 2017

According to Vodzilla we’re in for some treats with regards to new additions on Netflix UK throughout May. As well as all the global Netflix Originals we post about separately there are a lot of great shows and films on their way – especially for the kids and fans of the horror genre.

It’s been a while since we had some good additions for the younger viewers so May’s additions are more than welcome (although having them over the Easter break may have been helpful). First we have two Dreamworks’ Animation films being added with “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2” (3rd May) and “Shrek” (18th May) – the latter completing the full Shrek quadrilogy on Netflix UK. Stop motion animation films Chicken Run (1st May) and “James and The Giant Peach” (31st May) will also be added this month along with the classicJumanji (31st May) making a welcome return.

Horror fans have a good selection for May too. Highlights include British movie “The Descent” (1st May) where a caving expedition goes fatally wrong when some flesh-eating creatures make an appearance. Two films returning to Netflix UK include Joss Whedon’s The Cabin in The Woods (25th May) and Resident Evil (1st May). Joining them will be “Silent Hill” based on the classic horror game.

TV series have some great additions for UK Netflix throughout May. Firstly we have lots of new seasons of Netflix Originals such as House of Cards (season 5, 30th May), Sense8 (season 2, 5th May), Master of None (season 2, 12th May), Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (season 3, 19th May) and F Is for Family (season 2, 30th May). We also have season 12 of comedy series It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia (7th May) to look forward to. But how can we forget the 3rd and final series of Bloodline which arrives on 26th May.



Don’t forget our list of all weekly episodes on Netflix UK and please let us know what you’re looking forward to this month.

    1. I’ve found VODzilla.co to be a very reliable source. However, as with all things like this, the key part is “subject to change”. They may have been scheduled before but licenses can change…

  1. I assume by ‘they’ you mean American Netflix? Different licenses. Sky will likely have the rights to Doctor Strange in the UK – subscribe to Now TV Movies at £9.99 a month and you can probably get it.
