Netflix has 30 originals coming to the service in May 2019, taking up the majority of spaces on the list. Here’s a look at everything coming to and leaving Netflix in May 2019.

If you’re a fan of more original content from Netflix (this is mostly what you’re now paying for, after all), then you’ll be happy to hear that most of the arrivals on Netflix in May 2019 are originals. Whether stand-up comedies, documentaries, foreign titles, movies, or TV shows, there are 30 Netflix Originals heading to the service.

Some of them you’ll have likely heard of. The Society is one of the biggest arrivals in May, focusing on a group of teens who find themselves in an alternate world where there are no adults. They need to figure out how to survive, which means forming bonds and alliances that don’t always hold.

Meanwhile, Lucifer fans will be excited to see the arrival of the new season. This is the first season to air on Netflix since the series was canceled by FOX. We’ve seen two of the episodes that were initially going to be part of a fourth season but the team has crafted all-new episodes for Season 4. It’s shorter than the rest but this does mean more focused storytelling.

Towards the end of the month, The Perfection is released. This is certainly one of those movies that will leave you on the edge if the trailer is anything to judge by. Honestly, it’s hard to figure out what the movie is about based on the trailer and that’s weirdly enticing. Just don’t eat while you watch it!

While there are plenty of shows and movies coming to Netflix in May 2019, there are also many exits. One of the most notable exits is Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. It’s not often a sequel is better than the original, but when it comes to Guardians of the Galaxy, it certainly wins on a number of occasions. We knew the Marvel exits were coming and this is the latest, but it will be on the Disney+ streaming service later.

If you’re a fan of The Big Bang Theory, you’ll have heard of Bill Nye, The Science Guy. His TV show, of the same name, is currently available to stream but we’ll be saying goodbye to it later this month.

Everything coming to and leaving Netflix in May 2019

Now it’s time to mark all the exits and arrivals for the month. This is your complete list as it stands right now. There are a few shows missing, such as Supernatural Season 14, which is supposed to drop on May 3 but hasn’t been put on the list by Netflix for some reason. Outlander Seasons 1 and 2 may also be available at the end of the month.

All Netflix Originals are marked with the asterisk.
