Now Playing: The Best New May 2019 Netflix Movies & TV Shows

It's May, and that means Netflix has a ton of new content for you to munch on. And by munch, we mean watch from the safety and comfort of your own couch. The fifth month of the year has plenty of movies and TV series for you to watch or rewatch again and again. As usual, there are also many Netflix originals for you to check out, and we have some suggestions for you to check out.

Beginning on May 1, there are a few movies you may have seen before that you'll want to watch again. The classic '80s movie Gremlins comes to Netflix that day, and the horror/comedy still holds up as a fantastic flick. Speaking of classic '80s movies, the unintentionally horrifying Frank Oz and Jim Henson movie The Dark Crystal arrives. The film follows Jen, who was taken in by the Mystics, and his duty is to heal a cracked magical crystal and keep it from the evil Skeksis. Back in 2017, Netflix announced a prequel series titled The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, so hopefully, the new Netflix original will arrive soon.

As far as original series go, there is plenty to keep your eye on, and this includes returning series. Originally a Fox series--based on a DC comic book--Lucifer heads to Netflix for its fourth season on May 8. The show follows the devil, living on Earth, and helping a local detective solve crimes. It's actually a lot better than it sounds. Also returning is The Rain for a second season on May 3. The Danish science-fiction show follows a group of survivors after rain carrying a deadly virus kills almost everyone in Scandinavia.

Coming on May 6 is the Netflix original Abyss. The Korean fantasy drama follows two people brought back from the dead through a marble called "Abyss." However, the revived people find themselves in completely different bodies. For those who are fans of the true crime genre, which Netflix does a lot of, on May 31, Killer Ratings arrives. The documentary follows a Brazilian TV host who literally killed people for better ratings, and used his crime TV series to cover it up.

Below, you'll find everything coming to and leaving Netflix in May. If you're interested in more arrivals at streaming services, check out what is arriving at Hulu and Amazon Prime Video for the upcoming month.
