Netflix has revealed what’s coming to the streamer in May. Undoubtedly one of the biggest highlights this month is Stranger Things season 4. After a three-year hiatus, we’re returning to the Upside Down. That’s not all. A collection of Jackass Forever deleted scenes make up a new collection of zany antics from the crew; Jackass 4.5 is available to stream on 4.5. Plus, the always-brilliant anthology series Love, Death and Robots is back for a third volume later this month.

We’ve got the full rundown of what’s new on Netflix in May. Everything from thought-provoking documentaries to children’s cartoons are dropping soon, and you can get ahead of the game by planning out your month-in-streaming day by day. There’s even the full list of Netflix UK incomings for you to gawp at too, should you find yourself across the pond. 

Jackass 4.5 – May 20

Jackass Forever was a triumphant return for Johnny Knoxville and company on the big screen. Much like its previous feature-length efforts, a collection of deleted scenes have been rolled into a separate movie. Enter: Jackass 4.5. Featuring “more stunts and stupidity”, the new release is going to be filled with unseen footage, including the ominously-named Swingset Gauntlet. This is going to hurt…

Love, Death and Robots (Volume 3) – May 20

Love, Death and Robots has always been one of Netflix’s most underappreciated canvases on which it’s painted some of its best stories. Its third volume, out on May 20, looks to be no different.

The anthology series, which presents short stories in a whole host of different animated styles, is bringing back the titular Three Robots from the very first volume. The first teaser, meanwhile, has showcased the quiet beauty of post-apocalyptic cities, terrifying aliens, and the infiniteness of space. 

Stranger Things season 4 – May 27

It’s been a long time coming, but Stranger Things is finally back. There’s a lot to catch up on, too, as Hopper is incarcerated in Russia, Eleven and the gang are having to deal with the perils of growing up, and there’s a shadowy new threat lurking in the Upside Down. The creators have already talked up the epic scale of this season, even comparing it to Game of Thrones. It’s so epic, in fact, that we’re only getting a handful of bumper-sized episodes this month. The rest follow in July.
