Netflix in May 2019: Everything new coming next month, and everything leaving

Jacob Siegal

That’s more like it. After a few slow months in a row, Netflix is back to being extremely busy throughout the month of May, with a great deal of high-profile original movies and series — both new and returning — hitting the service in the coming weeks. That includes the Ted Bundy biography Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, the Amy Poehler comedy Wine Country, and the fourth season of the Fox-turned-Netflix dramedy Lucifer.

If licensed content is more your speed, there’s plenty of that too. Some of the highlights include Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Scarface, Snowpiercer, and the entire Matrix trilogy. Unfortunately, we’re also losing Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Jaws, Sixteen Candles, and even more James Bond movies.
