Here’s Everything New on Netflix in May 2022—and What’s Leaving

After a nearly three-year wait, a new season of Stranger Things premieres on Netflix in May—and it’s just one in an array of much-anticipated releases. New series, including The Lincoln Lawyer, which is based on a Michael Connelly book, and Savage Beauty, a South African tale of revenge, are also hitting the streaming platform. The documentary Wild Babies, which zooms in on the adventures of adorable infant lions, elephants, and penguins, makes an excellent palate-cleanser.

Meanwhile, reality TV lovers can catch the latest seasons of The Circle and Bling Empire, or binge the U.S. version of Love on the Spectrum, which follows singles with autism on their quest for love.
