Steve Carell heads up “Space Force,” an original comedy created by Carell’s “The Office”-mate Greg Daniels, and Ryan Murphy offers his take on “Hollywood” in his 1940s period piece series starring Darren Criss, Patti LuPone and Samara Weaving — two of the new shows launching on Netflix in May.

Other new shows include the limited series “The Eddy,” with André Holland as a jazz-club owner in Paris, and family drama “Sweet Magnolias.” There are also new seasons of “Dead to Me,” “Workin’ Moms,” “Dynasty,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Charmed,” “Riverdale,” “Supergirl” and “The Flash.”

Among the new movies this month: the award-winning “Uncut Gems,” with Adam Sandler; the Netflix original drama “All Day and a Night,” with Jeffrey Wright and Regina Taylor; comedies “The Lovebirds,” with Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani, and “The Wrong Missy,” with David Spade and Lauren Lapkus; LGBTQ teen comedy “The Half of It“; and interactive comedy special “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Kimmy vs. The Reverend,” with Ellie Kemper.


Nonfiction programs include “Trial by Media” and “Have a Good Trip: Adventures in Psychedelics.” Plus: stand-up comedy specials from Jerry Seinfeld and Patton Oswalt, and a concert special with Ben Platt.

Here’s the list of what’s arriving on Netflix in May, and what’s leaving. Note that these are just highlights; Stream On Demand will be keeping an eye out for other notable films and TV shows that arrive through the month.
