May is almost upon us, and Netflix has a great lineup of new releases coming soon. The most highly anticipated series release for May is part 1 of the third season of Bridgerton on May 16. So, to prepare you for that series debut, check out the streamer's great list of romantic comedies, including the newly added Anyone But You and How to Be Single.

Anyone But You (2023)

Anyone But You stars Sydney Sweeney as Bea and Glen Powell as Ben, two people who experience a fantastic first date, which ends poorly, only to be reunited in Australia at a destination wedding. The movie is loosely based on William Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing and also stars Alexandra Shipp, GaTa, Hadley Robinson, Michelle Hurd, Dermot Mulroney, Darren Barnet, Bryan Brown, and Rachel Griffiths.

How to Be Single (2016)

Based on the novel by Liz Tuccillo, How to Be Single follows friends Alice (Dakota Johnson), Robin (Rebel Wilson), Meg (Leslie Mann), and Lucy (Alison Brie), who all live in New York City and approach being single very differently. Whether it's playing the field or cracking online dating algorithms, the girls each approach being single in their own ways, but now they will shake things up. The movie also stars Damon Wayans Jr., Anders Holm, Alison Brie, Nicholas Braun, Jake Lacy, and Jason Mantzoukas.

27 Dresses (2008)

The movie 27 Dresses stars Katherine Heigl, James Marsden, Malin Åkerman, Edward Burns, and Judy Greer in a story about a woman who is always the bridesmaid and never the bride. When her sister becomes involved with the man she is secretly in love with, she wrestles with her emotions as she tries to support her sister's upcoming nuptials. Watch it fast because the movie leaves Netflix on April 30!

Set It Up (2018)

The Netflix original Set It Up follows two overworked and underappreciated assistants who make a pact to set their bosses up, believing it will ultimately make their lives easier. Zoey Deutch and Glen Powell portray Charlie and Harper, who live in New York City and work as assistants to highly demanding bosses portrayed by Taye Diggs and Lucy Lui. Charlie and Harper endure the pains of their jobs as their bosses are highly influential and can help their careers, even though they have little time for their personal lives. They set up a "meet cute" for the bosses, but this eventually creates more work than ever for the two assistants.

You've Got Mail (1998)

An oldy but goodie, the 1998 Nora Ephron movie You've Got Mail features two rival bookstore owners who unknowingly strike up a relationship via the internet. The pair have met in person but hate one another and vent to their online friend who happens to be one and the same. Starring Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks, together again after their hit rom-com Sleepless in Seattle, along with Parker Posey, Jean Stapleton, Greg Kinnear, Dave Chappelle, Steve Zahn, Heather Burns, Dabney Coleman, and the late Jean Stapleton.
