Here’s what’s coming to (and leaving from) Netflix in May

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

We’ve endured April’s interminable showers, which means it’s time to reap the flowery benefits of May. Next month’s Netflix bounty includes the third season of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, the trailer for which was also released today. In keeping with that protagonist’s overwhelming optimism, May will also bring us season two of Sense8, which had a suitably bright-eyed Christmas special. Subscribers will also be able to drop in on the romantic misadventures of Master Of None when that dramedy’s second season premieres later in the month. You can also look forward to comedy specials from Maria Bamford, Sarah Silverman, Norm Macdonald, Tracy Morgan, and newly-minted White House Correspondents’ Dinner host Hasan Minhaj. There are also new seasons of House Of Cards, Bloodline, and F Is For Family on the horizon.


But because there’s no such thing as a free lunchtime binge, you’ll have to bid farewell to The Doors, The Wedding Planner, The Recruit, and more.
