Everything Coming To And Leaving Netflix In May 2019, Including ‘Wine Country’ And Zac Efron As Ted Bundy


Netflix wants you to cancel all your plans this month.

That’s the only explanation for why the streaming platform is loading us down with so many stellar original series and films for May. There are serial killer dramas, comedies from SNL icons, political docs, tragically true miniseries, and an animated show from a BoJack Horseman alumn. So let’s skip the niceties and dive right in. Here’s everything coming to (and leaving) Netflix in May.

Wine Country (Netflix film streaming 5/10)

Amy Poehler rounds up some of her funniest gal-pals from Saturday Night Live for this boozy comedy about a girls’ trip to Napa Valley. The film is packed with comedy legends like Tina Fey, Rachel Dratch, Paula Pell, Maya Rudolph, Ana Gasteyer, and Emily Spivey and marks Poehler’s directing debut. It’s an ode to female friendships and how they change as we age — think Bridesmaids but with more wine.

Knock Down The House (Netflix film streaming 5/1)

This political doc makes its way from Sundance to Netflix this month. It follows the grassroots campaign of the right’s favorite punching bag, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, showcasing her charisma and approachability while also diving into more intimate parts of her life, like her relationship with her late father.

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (Netflix film streaming 5/3)

The buzzed-about biopic of serial killer Ted Bundy lands on the streaming platform this month. After the trailer of the film dropped, some were worried this Joe Berlinger-directed story would idolize the man who murdered so many women years ago but that controversy should help it play well here, as should Zac Efron’s frighteningly-magnetic turn as Bundy.

Tuca & Bertie (Netflix series streaming 5/3)

Ali Wong and Tiffany Haddish voice the stars of this animated comedy from BoJack Horseman artist Lisa Hanawalt. Wong plays Bertie, a 30-something song thrush with debilitating anxiety, a knack for baking, and a truly toxic work environment. Haddish plays her best friend Tuca, a loud-mouthed Tucan who loves to party and hates the thought of settling down. The friends try to hold onto their single days, even as Bertie takes the next step in her long-term relationship and Tuca struggles to find her place in the world.

When They See Us (Netflix Original)

Director Ava DuVernay’s limited series about the wrongfully accused men in the Central Park Five case makes its way to Netflix this May. The series sheds light on racial profiling and corruption in the NYPD as a group of young Black men are targeted for a heinous crime, and put on trial with little evidence. It’s a gripping, heartbreaking retelling, but one that feels sadly relevant.
