April is nearly in the books, so it’s time to see what we will be catching on Netflix in May. And we also bid farewell to a classic. That’s right; Scrubs seasons 1-9 is departing Netflix on May 2. Better get your binge on if you need a rewatch. Everything must come to an end.

It’s not all bad news for Netflix fans. May is packed with returning originals. House of Cards is back with a new season. Master of None and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt both return in May. While not a Netflix Original, you have to watch the collaboration between BBC and Netflix on The Last Kingdom. If you like Vikings (History Channel), you’ll love this show. It returns for its second season.

House of Cards:

Master of None:

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt:

Movie fan? We get a nice surprise with the addition of Forrest Gump and Inglourious Basterds. Netflix gets a double dose of Brad Pitt with the premiere of War Machine. It’s doubtful Forrest Gump’s run will be forever. One day, he’ll get tired and return home.

You’re welcome for taking up seven minutes of your day.
