Entertainment The List
Posted: 7:27 PM, Apr 24, 2018

Thinking of a Netflix and chill kind of night, but nothing's grabbing your interest? Get ready for May, because a giant list of new titles is coming to your favorite streaming service. And your favorite titles could be there, along with that new season you've been waiting impatiently for. 

Some movie classics are making their Netflix debut like, The 40-Year-Old Virgin with Steve Carrell, and the musical genius of Mamma Mia. And as expected, Netflix will also drop some original titles, like the series The Rain, the movie Cargo, and the thriller series Mob Psycho: 100. But there's also titles leaving the service, like The Exorcism of Emily Rose and Disney's High School Musical series. So make sure to binge on those while they last! 

Overall, Netflix never disappoints with the extended selection in titles to choose from for those late-night binge sessions. Whether you're in the mood to shed a tear with Disney's Coco, or laughing out loud to the Queens of Comedy, there's something for everyone to enjoy. So without further ado, here's our list of everything coming and leaving Netflix in May 2018.
