Coming and Leaving Netflix

By: Rachel Bimber

Summer is just around the corner, but that doesn’t mean that teenagers are going to cease their Netflix binges. However, some may be disappointed, or excited, about the upcoming movies and shows both entering and leaving the Netflix world.

Stuffing more and more original content into its queue, Netflix has shown how much more into itself it has become. Netflix is adding in more of its original documentaries like The Mars Generation, Get Me Rodger Stone, and The Keepers, and adding in the next seasons of House of Cards, Sense8, Master of None, Bloodline, and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. As for non-Netflix films and TV series, the month of May is a little slow, but we will receive a few major block-busters such as Doctor Strange and Southpaw. We will also be receiving one of the most anticipated continuations of the British TV series, Sherlock: Series 4.

Here is a list of all of the movies and shows arriving to Netflix this month.
