What's New To Netflix This Week? Movies, TV, And Originals (May 17-23)

Find out what's coming to Netflix this week.


While stay at home orders remain in effect for most people around the world due to the COVID-19 pandemic, everyone is spending a bit more time in front of the TV, watching streaming services like Netflix. This week, there are a few new things coming to Netflix you may want to check out.

On Tuesday, Patton Oswalt has a new comedy special arriving called I Love Everything. The official synopsis reads, "Enjoy yourself as the Emmy and Grammy winning comedian reflects on hilarious existential anecdotes after recently embracing his 50s, including attending his daughter’s second-grade art show that cost him the chance to board a full-scale Millennium Falcon or how buying a house is like hiring a suicide squad of superhuman subcontractors."

This is Oswalt's third comedy special with Netflix, following up Annihilation and Talking for Clapping. I Love Everything arrives on May 19.

Also hitting Netflix this week is Season 6 of CW's The Flash. Arriving on Wednesday, the newest season of the show deals a lot with the mirrorverse and mirror clones. During Season 6, Crisis on Infinite Earths happens, so there is a big shift in the show about halfway through.

Below, you'll find what's coming to Netflix this week, and for more news on streaming, check out what's coming to Disney+ in June. In other Netflix news, the original series Umbrella Academy got a release date for Season 2, June 12, along with a fun reveal video to go along with it.
