New On Netflix May 2022: 'Stranger Things,' 'Our Father' And More

The streaming service announced the movies and shows arriving soon.

Netflix may be losing subscribers, but the streaming service is still moving forward with its latest additions. The platform is due to add more than 100 shows and movies in May, including new titles and old classics.

Beloved romcoms like “When Harry Met Sally,” “You’ve Got Mail” and “Crazy, Stupid, Love” will be available for streaming at the start of the month, along with dramas like “A River Runs Through It” and “Road to Perdition.” The final two seasons of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s political satire series “Servant of the People” will also be joining Netflix, due to popular demand in the wake of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

As for new content, the first part of the fourth season of “Stranger Things” drops on May 27 (part two comes on July 1), and the fourth season of “The Circle” will premiere on May 4, with new episodes added weekly.

Netflix movies making their debut next month include “Operation Mincemeat,” a World War II drama starring Colin Firth and Matthew Macfadyen, and “Along for the Ride,” an adaptation of Sarah Dessen’s young adult novel of the same name.

Elsewhere, the documentary “Our Father” follows the horrifying case of an Indiana fertility doctor who impregnated patients with his own sperm without their consent. For lighter fare, there’s Rebel Wilson’s new comedy “Senior Year” and the stand-up special “Christina P: Mom Genes.”
