netflix new releases

As we hurtle towards summer, it’s time for the big releases from the major streaming services. The Netflix new releases for May 2022 do not disappoint, with Strangers Things season four dropping its first volume towards the end of the month. It’s not the only piece of original content from the streaming giant. Lincoln Lawyer is set to make its debut, and the Mike Myers helmed Pentaverate drops earlier this month. 

Netflix Anime is also getting a solid boost, with One Piece and Vampire in the Garden premiering on May 22 and 16, respectively.
