What Movies & TV Shows Are Coming to Netflix in May 2017?

May is jam-packed with original Netflix programming, including new seasons of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, House of Cards, Master of None and Sense8. The streaming giant is also bringing us several original movies and comedy specials to keep us entertained during the first full month of Spring. Read on to find out what’s coming and going to Netflix in May.

When it comes to original programming, Aziz Ansari’s acclaimed sitcom Master of None returns for its second season on May 12, the same day the first seasons of All Hail King Julien: Exiled and Anne With an E are released. Master of None was created by Ansari and Alan Yang and stars Ansari as Dev, an Indian-American actor struggling in New York. Yang and Ansari won an Emmy for writing “Parents,” which was widely regarded as the best of the first season’s 10 episodes. Season one set a high standard for season two to live up to.

Tina Fey and Robert Carlock’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt returns on May 19. The series stars the wonderful Ellie Kemper as the title character, who lives in New York after escaping a Doomsday cult. Season two wasn’t as great as season one, so hopefully season three can get it back on track with Kimmy heading to college. And speaking of programs from 30 Rock alums, Tracy Morgan’s Staying Alive special is released on May 16.

For more serious fare, the fifth season of House of Cards will be available on May 30. The second season of Sense8, which was created by Lana & Lilly Wachowski and J. Michael Straczynski, is available on May 5.
