Well, we are sure to have nicer weather, greener lawns and flowers blooming in May. But don’t worry, you won’t have to see any of that because there’s plenty of new content on Netflix to keep the spring outside for another month. Here are just a few of the new shows and movies arriving: Anne with an E, House of Cards Season 5, Sense8 Season 2, Master of None Season 2, Sherlock Series 4, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Season 3.

Plus, there’s the new original film War Machine, Marvel’s Doctor Strange, Riverdale, and stand up comedy including specials from Norm MacDonald, Richard Pryor and Tracy Morgan.

As always, if you’re not getting Netflix you can try it out free for 30-days and then pay as little as $10 a month for a basic subscription. You’ll also want to check out some popular media streamers to beam Netflix to your TV.
