In May 2022, Netflix is adding a Swedish drama miniseries, a war drama movie, new seasons of Stranger Things and Love, Death & Robots, and more.
Netflix will add a Swedish TV series about a renowned criminal, a British war drama film, the third season of a popular animated anthology series, the highly anticipated fourth season of a sci-fi horror TV series, and much more to its lineup in May 2022.
Cinemas around the world are open and operating again, but as studios continue to release all of the films that were delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic, streaming services have remained strong.
Many of these platforms continue to host films that were previously only available in theatres, or they are shortening the time between theatrical and home distribution, allowing audiences to catch up quickly. Others, such as Netflix, have a long list of licensed and original content for months to come and continue to add new content from both branches every month.
April saw the arrival of the coming-of-age animated movie Apollo 10 ½: A Space Age Childhood, the comedy movies The Bubble and Metal Lords, the horror movie Choose or Die, the documentaries Conversations with a Killer: The John Wayne Gacy Tapes and The Mystery of Marilyn Monroe: The Unheard Tapes, new seasons of Elite and Russian Doll, and the final episodes of Grace and Frankie and Ozark. When it comes to licensed content, May will see a variety of titles, such as Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride, the rom-com Crazy, Stupid, Love, the action-thriller Dirty Harry, and the comedies Jackass: The Movie, Jackass 2.5, Jackass 3.5, and the highly-awaited Jackass 4.5.
Netflix will premiere a Swedish TV series starring Bill Skarsgard, a British war film based on a book, a new batch of Love, Death, and Robots episodes, the return of Hawkins and the Upside Down, and much more in terms of original material. Here’s what’s coming to Netflix in May 2022.
