Are you looking for a depressing list with few highlights and even fewer reasons to smile? Take a look at this list presenting the movies and shows that will come to Netflix in May 2019. This list will show you what’s coming to Netflix in the USA in May, meaning that people living elsewhere or with access to other regions might be luckier and have more reasons to rejoice. But, if you are stuck in the USA with no VPN connection and no way to access other Netflix regions, you should probably visit the library and find a book to read instead.
Maybe you find my introduction to be a bit harsh, and to be honest, that is the way I feel about it. I just read an article which said that May is packed with Netflix original content. That is true, and it is a reality that the money we pay to Netflix is being used in general at producing Netflix original content, and not at watching content produced by other companies. And with Disney+ showing up sometime in 2019, Netflix will become even more a closed community for Netflix productions, and there will be a much greater need for other platforms if you want to watch popular movies and TV shows from networks and companies such as Fox, Disney, NBC, CBS, ABC, Pixar, and so many others.
The question is probably whether you want to pay a high monthly fee in order to watch mostly Netflix original content or not? I am very curious to see what will happen with Brooklyn Nine-Nine as well. The first five seasons were made for FOX, but then they shut down the program, only for one day to pass by, and by then NBC had gathered the rights to keep it running for a sixth season. But, will Netflix get the rights to broadcast Brooklyn Nine-Nine season six, just like they have the rights to broadcast the first five seasons? I don’t know yet, but I look forward to find out more about it!

It is hard to find out what is great and interesting content on this list. Do you know why? It is all Netflix original content, meaning that you haven’t had the chance to watch it in the cinema, nor elsewhere. In other words, you will have to go on a discovery journey on your own to find out which of these productions are interesting and worth watching. I have checked quite a lot of trailers, but didn’t end up fancy anything especially much. Hopefully, you will be of greater luck!
No need to use a VPN to watch Netflix original content
You might call it an advantage… you do not need a VPN to watch the Netflix original content. How come? The original content is made available in every single Netflix region, and thus you do not need to use a VPN which will give you access to another region to stream the content. But, there are Netflix regions which still contain a lot of awesome content that you cannot find in the USA, and if you find that to be interesting, check out the best VPN providers for changing your Netflix region right now.
There are lots of TV shows and movies on Netflix in Canada that you cannot find elsewhere, so I am still looking for a list presenting what will come to Netflix Canada in May 2019. Whenever I find it, I will publish an article here in the IP Address Guide to let you know what’s up. I know people out there always look for ways to access American Netflix abroad, but I would much rather get access to Canadian Netflix if I had to pick one single region. There you can watch a whole lot of TV shows that you cannot find in other regions, for example Star and Lethal Weapon, but it is also the best region if you want to watch blockbuster movies that you can normally only stream with an HBO Now subscription.
Do you disagree with me?
Have you read through the list of movies and series coming to Netflix in the USA in May? Do you have anything that you look especially much forward to? Maybe a movie or a TV show? I would love to hear about it, because maybe I have missed out on something great that I should watch as well. Because, even though I might be critical to Netflix original content, I do like some Netflix original TV series and movies (like Birdbox and Black Mirror), so there are a couple of diamonds hidden in the mud of boring stuff. So, please share with me your favorites for May, and I will do my best to check it out and maybe write a new article or update this with more information!
