LOS GATOS, Calif. — Netflix has released its list of new shows and movies coming to the streaming site in May, which is perfect timing for those stands who are extending coronavirus stay-at-home orders. The May list includes several brand new comedy specials, documentaries and binge-worthy shows.

In the first three months of 2020, the streaming platform added 16 million new global subscribers. Now, the new members are probably looking for content.
