May is an exciting time for most college students because it marks the end of spring semester and the start of summer. With summer providing more free time, the lineup for Netflix’s May additions are looking like an exciting way to fill up some time. 

What’s New

Though we dread the beginning of a new month with all of the Netflix departures, we can also look forward to the new additions to make up for the losses. May is gaining some strong additions, including movies like Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery and the two highly anticipated Netflix Originals: Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, the biopic about Ted Bundy starring Zac Efron, and Wine Country, starring a number of big female comedians and directed by Amy Poehler.  Here is a complete list of every new title coming to Netflix in May:
