Spring is finally here, and streaming shows are celebrating appropriately. With the deadline for Emmy submissions for the 2021-2022 television season closing on May 31, this is the time of the year when production studios put out their best stuff that they saved for last in hopes it will be fresh in the minds of voters come June nomination voting. So, what’s coming to Netflix in May 2022 that will be top of the list? Let’s run it down.

The big release, of course, is Stranger Things Season 4, which will be split into two parts for the first time. Like Bridgerton, fans can expect Netflix to spend most of May hyping the return of the series that has been off the air for almost three years.

But that’s not the only thing coming to Netflix this month. The Circle Season 4 arrives early in the month and will run on a weekly batch release schedule. There’s also the American edition of the hit Love on the Spectrum, as well as Bling Empire Season 2. In movies, viewers will get the documentary Meltdown: Three Mile Island, the docudrama about the truth-is-stranger-than-fiction Operation Mincemeat, and the teen drama Along for the Ride.

And in honor of AAPI month, Netflix will introduce the “Our Roots, Our Stories” collection, highlighting the works of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders directors and actors.

Here’s the complete list of everything coming to Netflix in May 2022.
