Every Movie & TV Show Releasing In May 2022

In May 2022, Netflix is adding a Swedish TV series about a notorious criminal, a British war drama movie, the third season of a popular animated anthology series, the highly-anticipated fourth season of a sci-fi horror TV series, and a lot more. Cinemas all over the world are open and back in action, but as studios continue to release all those movies that had to be delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic, streaming services haven’t lost any force. Many of these platforms continue to house movies that skipped a theatrical release or they’re reducing the window between theatrical and home release, allowing the audience to catch up soon. Others, like Netflix, have a long list of licensed and original content for months to come and continue to add new content from both branches every month.


April saw the arrival of the coming-of-age animated movie Apollo 10 ½: A Space Age Childhood, the comedy movies The Bubble and Metal Lords, the horror movie Choose or Die, the documentaries Conversations with a Killer: The John Wayne Gacy Tapes and The Mystery of Marilyn Monroe: The Unheard Tapes, new seasons of Elite and Russian Doll, and the final episodes of Grace and Frankie and Ozark. When it comes to licensed content, May will see a variety of titles, such as Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride, the rom-com Crazy, Stupid, Love, the action-thriller Dirty Harry, and the comedies Jackass: The Movie, Jackass 2.5, Jackass 3.5, and the highly-awaited Jackass 4.5.
