What’s new to Netflix this May: The Society, WHAT/IF and more

by Dublin Gazette

A new month means a new spate of content being delivered to our screens, courtesy of Netflix.

The days are getting longer, meaning we’ve even more time to dive into the likes of WHAT/IF starring Renee Zellweger, Wine Country directed by Amy Poehler and season one of Derry Girls. Here’s some of our top picks for the month.

WHAT/IF made it’s trailer debut to rapturous applause online recently ahead of the series’ May 24 debut.

The show is painted as a ‘raw, voyeuristic examination of acceptable people doing unacceptable things’, and is expected to be the next big hit for the streaming giant.

Another May highlight is The Society, billed as a modern take on Lord of the Flies.

When everyone else mysteriously vanishes from their wealthy town, the teen residents of West Ham must forge their own society to survive. Find out what happens to them on May 10.

Killer Ratings is another must watch when it hits screens on May 31. A true-life documentary, it focuses on a Brazillian TV host who literally killed for ratings, then used his TV show to try cover up the horrific truth.

For something a bit more lighthearted, there’s Wine Country, a Netflix original film starring and directed by comedian Amy Poehler.

Focusing around six long-time friends heading away for a 50th birthday, the comedy sees the group question their friendships and futures. The movie hits the streaming service on May 10.

For all these and much more, be sure to keep an eye on Netflix over May.
