In Movies & TV

Kimmy Schmidt, Shrek and the cast of "Coco" are all coming to Netflix in May.

What's new to Netflix in May 2018

May usually signifies the start of the summer movie season, but for Netflix this year, it's a fairly low-key time – at least according to its recently released list of new arrivals for the upcoming month.

That isn't to say there aren't winners coming to your laptop screens and living rooms soon, though. Big screen blockbusters such as "The Bourne Ultimatum," "Hellboy II," "Wanted," "Coco" and "Shrek" are all headed to the streaming behemoth next month – and be sure to tell your mother that "Mamma Mia!" will be available as well, just in time for the sequel(?!) coming out this July.

Meanwhile, on the originals side of things, popular TV shows like "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" and "Dear White People" are both returning for new seasons alongside buzzy new movies like "Anon," the latest sci-fi saga from the director behind "Gattaca" (yay!) and "In Time" (boo!), and the Martin Freeman zombie drama "Cargo."

Here's the rest of everything arriving on Netflix in May:
