6. The Last Summer

We’re approaching the halfway mark in the best new Netflix originals in May, and up next, we have a new rom-com. Netflix has been seeing huge success with each new rom-com released on the platform. Titles like To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and The Perfect Date saw a record number of Netflix users stream the titles, so it’s not a huge surprise another rom-com is dropping in May and no doubt this will be another amazing Netflix original.

The Last Summer will star KJ Apa, who is best known for his role of Archie Andrews in Riverdale, Maia Mitchell, who is best known for The Fosters, Halston Sage, who can be seen in The Orville, Tyler Posey, from Teen Wolf, and Jacob Latimore, from Black Nativity.

It’s your typical teen rom-com when it comes to the storyline, but to be fair, we’re never fussed about the storyline being similar, that’s not what we watch rom-comsafter all. Anyway, The Last Summer focuses on high school graduates in their final summer together before the set off to college.

The film showcases how the characters wrestle with both love and friendship in their final summer. Expect plenty of emotions and feelings being tugged at while you watch this Netflix original along with plenty of laughs, as well.
