It’s that time of year again — y’know, that time of year that comes twelve times: It’s time for Netflix to tell us what to expect in May.

Since admittedly we devote a fair bit of our time to this beloved screening service, it is so helpful to be able to plan our binge watching around what’s leaving and what’s arriving during any given month. This month, we’re getting a ton and a half of movies, which is good because in theory that means we won’t lose twelve hours of our weekend binge watching a television series, but bad because it probably means that we’ll lose twice that watching an equivalent amount of movies that are twice as long.

We also have a lot of new CW show seasons to look forward to, and the new seasons of Sense 8, House of Cards, and Bloodline. Oooomg. So, without further adieu — here’s what you have to look forward to for May 2017. We’ll start popping the popcorn.
