Here’s Everything New On Netflix This Week, Including Ryan Murphy’s ‘Hollywood’ And ‘The Last Kingdom’

Netflix wraps up the month of April with the return of a Viking epic, a new drama from Ryan Murphy, and a hell of a lot of movies to keep our queues full during quarantine.

A BBC series, The Last Kingdom, returns for more medieval warfare. It’s a worthy sub for Game of Thrones fans looking for their next bingewatch. And Ryan Murphy dreams up an inclusive old Hollywood with his period drama starring Darren Criss. Of course, you could just feast on all of the quality films arriving on the streaming platform this week too — think Django Unchained, the Underworld series, and Back to the Future.

Here’s everything coming to (and leaving) Netflix this week of May 1.

The Last Kingdom: Season 4 (Netflix series streaming 4/26)

This action-packed period drama returns for a fourth season on Netflix this week. With King Alfred dead and his son ascended to the throne, Uhtred is free to reclaim his birthright but first, he’s got to face down an uncle who wants him dead and protect Alfred’s vision of a united England from Danish invaders, scheming lords, and mercenaries who see weakness in Wessex’s new king.

Hollywood (Netflix series streaming 5/1)

Ryan Murphy gives us a decadent, revisionist history of Hollywood full of old glam and refreshingly new storytelling. The loose premise of the show follows tinsel town after World War II, as a bunch of actors, directors, and screenwriters fight against the prejudice of the time to get a film made. It’s a little too starry-eyed to carry any weight — queer romances and women of color in starring roles would never fly back then, though they do here — but it’s pretty to look at.
