Coming and Going on Netflix in May 2016

Gerard Depardieu and the cast of the Netflix original series Marseilles

Netflix has announced highlights of its May schedule, from movies to TV shows to their own original programming. Netflix originals this month include the French crime drama Marseilles—the first original French language series from the company—starring Gerard Depardieu, the talk show Chelsea with Chelsea Handler, and new seasons of Grace and Frankie and Bloodline, plus the original film The Do-Over with Adam Sandler and David Spade.

The Civil War drama The Keeping Room (2015) with Brit Marling and Hailee Steinfeld and Eisenstein in Guanajuato (2015) from filmmaker Peter Greenaway come to Netflix before cable. New films include Alfred Hitchcock’s classic To Catch a Thief (1955) with Cary Grant and Grace Kelly, the teen comedy Sixteen Candles (1984), Pleasantville (1998) with Tobey Maguire and Reese Witherspoon, Things We Lost in the Fire (2007) with Halle Berry and Benicio Del Toro, and The Letters (2014) starring Juliet Stevenson as Mother Theresa.

Here’s Netflix’s list of what’s arriving on the service this month, and what’s leaving. Note that these are just highlights; Stream On Demand will be keeping an eye out for other notable films and TV shows that arrive through the month.
