Ncuti Gatwa plays Doctor Who in the new 'Doctor Who' series.

The Full Disney+ Lineup For May 2024 Is A Sci-Fi Trip

There's a lot to stream this summer.

This May, Disney+ is going all-in on fantasy adventures and pop culture documentaries. The streamer’s lineup of new shows and movies for the month is stacked with highly anticipated sci-fi premieres, including the introduction of Sex Education’s Ncuti Gatwa as the new iteration of Doctor Who. Along with a fresh season of Doctor Who, fans can also look forward to a sure-to-be internet-breaking season finale of X-Men ‘97, as well as the perfect way to celebrate Star Wars Day on May 4.

The biggest highlight of Disney+’s May lineup is the premiere of Series 14 of Doctor Who. The new season will focus on the time-traveling adventures of the Fifteenth Doctor, portrayed by Gatwa. Gatwa’s version of the Time Lord was first introduced in a 2023 Christmas special, making him the first Black actor and the first openly LGBTQ+ actor to ever play the long-running role. Though fans already got a glimpse at his origin story, the Fifteenth Doctor’s tenure will truly begin when three new episodes drop on May 10.

Also of note, Disney+’s breakout series X-Men ‘97 will air its three-part finale throughout May. The nostalgic superhero series has been hailed as one of Marvel’s best projects, particularly after its game-changing fifth episode. The season’s final three episodes, all entitled “Tolerance Is Extinction,” will drop each Wednesday in May.
