Check Out What’s Available To Stream On Netflix Starting In May

graceandfrankieNetflix is the champion of streaming services as most people will attest to with several original shows that have been nominated for awards and big fan-favorites.

Each month, Netflix scraps some of their programming to add new titles to their library and although there is not a lot to look forward to this month, certain titles should excite people that they may have missed out in recent years. Hulu recently acquired Seinfeld in an effort to compete with Netflix, but with all of the new titles that hit Netflix each month, it is hard to compete.

In case you missed it, here is the full list of titles that were added to Netflix in April.

Take a look at what is coming to Netflix over the course of the month of May:

May 1

Jimi: All Is By My Side (2013): This is the Jimi Hendrix biopic starring Andre 3000 that got almost no attention when it was released. It looked like it would be good before it came out and for all the people who missed it in theaters and have yet to see it, now is your chance. It was written and directed by Oscar-winning screenwriter John Ridley.

The Longest Week (2014): It is a bit of a mystery how this movie was not released in theaters and did not gain more attention given the quality of its cast. Perhaps with its addition to Netflix’s arsenal, more people will be checking it out. The comedy stars Jason Bateman, Olivia Wilde, Billy Crudup, and Jenny Slate.

May 8

Grace & Frankie (2015): It is the next original show from Netflix and one of the most anticipated comedies, especially for an older audience. The series reunites film legends Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda and also stars Martin Sheen and Sam Waterson in what looks to be a hilarious new show.
Puss in Boots – Season 1 (5 additional episodes)
Tyler Perry’s A Madea Christmas (2013)

May 9

Jinn (2014)
The Liberator (2013)

May 12

Fruitvale Station (2013): This film was unfortunately overlooked by many people due to its limited release when it came out and Michael B. Jordan’s lack of much-deserved award nominations, but it is a film that everyone needs to see. It tells the true story of Oscar Grant, a young man from San Francisco who was killed by police officers at the BART station in 2008.

Extraterrestrial (2014)
Magical Universe (2013)

May 13

The Identical (2014)

May 14

Duck Dynasty (new collection): It has been given a lot of attention due to some controversial views by the family members, but perhaps that just made it even more popular for some people. Some people will certainly be excited about this addition to Netflix’s library.

May 19

Before I Disappear (2014): It was an indie film that premiered at SXSW in 2014 that has probably seen by almost no one. Adding it to Netflix should give the film some much-deserved attention as it looks like the type of story that we can relate to with someone being down in their life and being called upon by their estranged sister to look after his niece. It was written and directed by Shawn Christensen, who also stars as the main character.
Girlhood (2014)
Zombeavers (2014)

Then one day, new terrifying truths emerge that force her to question everyone around her.
