A new month means a new turnover for what you’ll be able to watch on Netflix in May. Netflix continues to promote a metric ton of original content, including documentaries, foreign films, kids’ content and television series.

The much-anticipated Ted Bundy film starring Zac Efron premiers May 3rd directly on Netflix: don’t miss Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile. And fans of adult animated dark comedy Bojack Horseman will want to check out Tuca and Bertie, offering more magical realism and talking animals from Bojack co-creator Lisa Hanawalt.

Fans of the former Fox show Lucifer — about a fallen angel who has reinvented himself as a bad boy in Los Angeles — will be delighted to see Netflix has revived the fourth season as original Netflix content, slated to begin streaming in May.

Meanwhile, adventure/fantasy/sci-fi lovers will be pleased to see John Carter joining the Netflix lineup on May 2nd, replacing Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 which leaves on May 5th.

Set your calendar alerts for what’s coming to and leaving Netflix this May, and if you are one the few hold-outs who doesn’t have Netflix, you can get a free trial here so you don’t miss a thing:
