New film and tv series coming to Netflix US in May 2017

By ·April 22, 2017 12:22 pm

May is forthcoming and we have an updated list of titles being added to Netflix US. Below you will find an expansive list of new films, tv series and documentaries being added to the streaming service for the month. As usual, we’ve highlighted some of our recommended titles, as well as Netflix original content.

With each new month Netflix seems to be shying away from licensed titles more and more in favor of  focusing more heavily on their original content. In light of this, we have fewer recommendations than usual due to many of the additions being new or unfamiliar to us. That being said, this month drama fans can revisit the award winning Forrest Gump starring Tom Hanks, or Southpaw starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Rachel McAdams. For Marvel fans Doctor Strange starring Benedict Cumberbatch is available later this month, and likewise you can also catch Cumberbatch in BBC’s Sherlock: Series 4. Last but not least, this month sees the highly anticipated second season of Netflix Original Sense8.

That concludes our suggestions for the month, below you will find the full list of titles being added in May:
