There’s so much to love about this time of year as we move into summer. Netflix is giving us even more to smile about, though. Netflix has announced that they’re adding a whole slew of new programs for us in May to feast our eyes on. With a wide variety of movies and shows on their way, you have no excuse to take a break from your sunbathing and come inside for a little popcorn and movie time.

Here are the 5 additions bound to generate the most buzz:

1. Chelsea (2016)

EW

For the first time ever, we have access to a weekly talk show that’s streamed live online. Starting on may 11, Netflix brings you Chelsea, a program with, yep, Chelsea Handler, and episodes will air every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. We’re expecting the usual — hilarious and refreshingly honest material.

2. Sixteen Candles (1984)

Universal Pictures

That’s right. Your life will improve significantly on May 1, when classic ’80s movie Sixteen Candles is made available on Netflix.

3. Lady Dynamite (2016)

Netflix

Say hello to a Netflix original series called Lady Dynamite, starring Maria Bamford, a comedian who may not be a household name, but she’s been successfully cracking jokes for a while now. The series is loosely based on her own life and experiences, and it starts May 20.

4. The Do-Over (2016)

Netflix

Here’s Adam Sandler’s second Netflix movie, premiering on May 27. Sandler and David Spade play two dudes who think it’s a good idea to fake their own deaths, but of course the whole plan backfires on them. Should make for an easy summer giggle.

5. Bring It On (2000)
