The 10 best shows to watch on Netflix in May 2019 including Dead to Me, Outlander, Pose, Lucifer, and When They See Us.

Are you ready for the busiest season on Netflix? This May, the streamer kicks off the pre-summer rush with a bang. If you haven’t already cleared out your watch list from last month’s binge-worthy new release shows and original series premieres, you better hurry and power through before the next batch of headline-grabbing content drops. You won’t want to miss this.

Netflix is the place to be this May, as the streaming giant unleashes a sure record number of original series premieres and returns. Topping off the month is the highly anticipated dark comedy Dead to Me, starring TV favorites Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini. Another megastar comes to Netflix this month, as Renée Zellweger stars in the enticing drama What/If. Other big premiers include Ava DuVernay’s When They See Us and the recently saved Lucifer.

Also, the latest seasons of your favorite shows on The CW, including Charmed, Riverdale, Arrow, and Supernatural (among others) arrive this month along with the first season of Ryan Murphy’s Pose and the first two seasons of cult favorite drama Outlander. After checking out those small screen hits, check out Netflix’s The Rain and The Society, and the much longer list series coming this May than can fit in a Top 10, like the latest seasons of Nailed It and She’s Gotta Have It.
