Save It For A Rainy Day: What’s Coming And Leaving Netflix In May

Becca Van Sambeck
Becca is a recent Fordham grad, a former German beer hall girl, and a new Brooklyn resident who used to read the dictionary for fun as a kid. She has only gotten slightly less lame since then. She loves pugs, chicken fingers, reading and Game of Thrones.

So here we are, guys, yet another month down in 2016. In some ways, we celebrate May: The arrival of beach season, sandal weather and new offerings on Netflix. And in other ways, we mourn the losses of May: The end of a school year and several big losses on our favorite streaming service.

Here’s what you can expect to add to your queue this month and what you’ll be forced to do without:

What’s Arriving

If you still find yourself humming the Toros’ cheer chant, we have good news for you: Bring It On is coming! There’s also a second season of Bloodline, one of Netflix’s more under-appreciated original offerings, a second season of Grace and Frankie, one of Netflix’s more boring original offerings, Sixteen Candles for all of you with ‘80s nostalgia, Chelsea Handler’s newest project, Chelsea, Lady Dynamite, a new show from comedian Maria Bamford, and Pleasantville, which is just a great Reese Witherspoon movie.
