What’s Coming to Netflix USA in May 2017

As we approach the end of April Netflix are starting to announce some of the new additions coming in May. Aside from the Original Series and Movies (“Master of None”, “Sense8”, “House of Cards” etc) that are covered in our weekly Netflix Originals updates there is a good selection of great movies and TV series coming next month – with even more to be announced. You can watch the video below to see the full list so far, but here are a few highlights:

The PBS documentary¬†“Richard Pryor: Icon” will arrive on 1st May and is about one of America’s greatest stand-up comics, the late Richard Pryor. May 9th sees the arrival of the drug-smuggling crime show “Queen of The South” closely followed by season 4 of the hit BBC show “Sherlock” on the 15th. The CW’s “Riverdale” season 1, based on the popular Archie comics, lands on Netflix USA on May 18th – a long-awaited addition that many other Netflix regions have been able to watch weekly for some time. For big films we have boxing movie “Southpaw” (May 24th) as well as Marvel’s “Doctor Strange” (May 30th).

Other additions for May include “Supernatural” season 12, “The Flash” season 3 and “Supergirl” season 2 although dates for these are yet to be confirmed.

What are you looking forward to the most?
