Post: What’s Worth Streaming: Here’s everything new coming to Netflix in May 2022 — and what’s leaving

After a dismal first quarter, Netflix hopes to lure back subscribers in May with the return of some of its most popular series.

After a three-year layoff, the ’80s-set sci-fi thriller “Stranger Things” (May 27) is back for the first half of its fourth season. The gang is in high school now and split up, after Joyce (Winona Ryder) moved her family — including Will (Noah Schnapp) and Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) — to California. But the Upside Down isn’t done with them yet, and a spring-break reunion promises more adventures. Five episodes will drop on the 27th, with the final four episodes of the season coming July 1.


also has new seasons of some fan-favorite unscripted series, such as Season 4 of the social-media/catfishing competition “The Circle” (May 4, with new episodes every week); a new, U.S. version of the Australian hit dating show “Love on the Spectrum” (May 18); and Season 5 of the comforting food/travel show “Somebody Feed Phil” (May 25).

There’s also “Senior Year” (May 13), a comedy movie starring Rebel Wilson as a popular girl who wakes up after two decades in a coma and wants to finish high school; “The Lincoln Lawyer” (May 13), a new legal-drama series from producer David E. Kelley and based on the character from Michael Connelly’s popular novels; Season 5 of the Starz romantic drama “Outlander” (May 10), which originally aired in 2020; and Season 3 of the Spanish-language melodrama “Who Killed Sara?” (May 18).

Netflix is also adding movies such as “When Harry Met Sally,” “You’ve Got Mail” and “Crazy, Stupid Love” (all May 1), while “Top Gun,” all six seasons of “Downton Abbey” and all three seasons of “Happy Endings” will leave the service at the end of the month.

Here’s the complete list of what’s coming and going, as of April 20 (release dates are subject to change):
