As the undisputed king of streaming (for now at least), Netflix has enjoyed the presence of some major blockbusters. Now, with its list of new releases for May 2022, Netflix is bringing back one of its biggest ever hits.

Stranger Things season 4 “volume one” is set to premiere on May 27. It’s been a long wait for new episodes of this ’80s-tinged sci-fi/horror series and based on the trailers, the wait will have been well worth it. In this go-around, the kids of Hawkins (now high schoolers) will have to contend with the Upside Down once again to go along with the horrors of the Creel House.

While Stranger Things is the biggest Netflix original this month, it’s far from the only one. Mike Myers’ latest series The Pentaverate premieres on May 5 (fittingly: 5/5). Meanwhile The Lincoln Lawyer is set to arrive on May 13 followed by Love, Death & Robots Volume 3 on May 20. Netflix anime gets a boost this month in the form of Vampire in the Garden (May 16) and new episodes of One Piece (May 22).

There are also some original films to look forward to in May. The WWII film Operation Mincemeat (definitely Google that) arrives on May 11, as does the very icky-sounding documentary Our Father. Rebel Wilson will then debut her comedy Senior Year on May 13.

And then there’s the library titles. May 1 sees the arrival of Corpse Bride, Forrest Gump, and War of the Worlds. Outlander fans will get to rewatch season 5 when that comes to Netflix on May 10.

Here is everything else coming to Netflix this month.
