Netflix May 2022 Releases: Thar, Stranger Things 4, Love Death + Robots Season 3, and More

Stranger Things 4 is by far the biggest title on Netflix in May 2022, with the hit sci-fi supernatural horror series returning after nearly three years away. The penultimate season of Stranger Things has been split into two parts: the five-episode Volume 1 drops May 27, with the four-episode Volume 2 due July 2. The biggest Netflix original from India this month is Thar, a Western-inspired crime thriller set in ‘80s Rajasthan. Father and son Anil and Harsh Varrdhan Kapoor lead Thar, which arrives May 6 on Netflix in India and around the world. The only other Indian Netflix original we know of in May 2022 is the animated spin-off Mighty Little Bheem: I Love Taj Mahal, shooting in May 30 on Netflix.

If you’re looking for new Netflix original series in May, you can catch Mike Myers playing eight characters in the limited comedy series The Pentaverate, where a Canadian journalist is trying to expose a secret group of five who have been influencing world events for the greater good. So, it’s like the Illuminati but less sinister? The Pentaverate drops all of its episodes May 5 on Netflix. Alongside Stranger Things, the other major series returning in May 2022 is the adult animated anthology Love, Death & Robots for Volume 3, which promises continuations of at least two stories from the first season. Love, Death & Robots Volume 3 is available May 20 on Netflix.

Have you ever wondered where the term Stockholm syndrome came from? Thanks to the new Swedish Netflix series Clark, you don’t have to dig through Wikipedia to know the answer. Instead, you can watch it come to life, as Bill Skarsgård plays the lifelong criminal Clark Olofsson who was involved in the 1973 Norrmalmstorg bank robbery and hostage crisis. Clark is out May 5 on Netflix. That leaves The Lincoln Lawyer, where Manuel Garcia-Rulfo steps into the car previously occupied by Matthew McConaughey — for the 2011 film of the same name — with David E. Kelley delivering his second Netflix series following Anatomy of a Scandal in April. All episodes of The Lincoln Lawyer are due May 13 on Netflix.

If it’s Netflix original movies you’re interested in, May 2022 has a couple of options beyond the aforementioned Thar. In Senior Year, Rebel Wilson plays a 37-year-old woman who wakes up from a 20-year coma — thanks to a cheerleading stunt gone wrong — and decides to return to high school to achieve her big dream: become prom queen. Senior Year rolls in May 13 on Netflix. Elsewhere, the Lupin duo of actor Omar Sy and director Louis Leterrier reunite on the action comedy The Takedown, streaming May 6 on Netflix.

And while Jackass Forever has yet to release in India, unused footage of that fourth movie in the reality comedy film series — made into Jackass 4.5 — is coming here thanks to Netflix. It’s not an original, but rather an exclusive. Jackass 4.5 swings onto Netflix May 20. And in other licensed movies, we have the Gal Gadot-led sequel Wonder Woman 1984 powering in May 15 on Netflix, while Jumanji: The Next Level — starring Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, and Karen Gillan — portals in May 10. Both those movies have been available previously (on Prime Video), and now they will be available to Netflix subscribers in India.

Lastly, Netflix’s pursuit of being the biggest home for true-crime documentaries continues in May with Our Father, where a woman discovers that she has multiple half-siblings, all thanks to a fertility doctor who illegally and criminally artificially inseminated women looking for donor sperm. Produced by Emmy-winning Jason Blum (The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst), Our Father releases May 11 on Netflix.
