    Each month, Consequence of Sound puts together a full list of new TV and film titles coming to Netflix. May 2020 brings a whopper of additions, particularly the debut of Greg Daniels and Steve Carell’s new workspace comedy Space Force.

    Binge-watchers should also make space in their queue for Damien Chazelle’s first foray into TV with The Eddy, Ryan Murphy’s 456,785th series Hollywood, and, wow, who knew there were not one, not two, but three Jarhead movies. Huh.

    And those of you looking for a few more yuks amidst devastating times are in good luck. There’s the premiere of Kumail Nanjiani and Issa Rae’s new comedy The Lovebirds and new specials coming from Jerry Seinfeld, Hannah Gadsby, and Patton Oswalt.


    Check out the entire list below and start stocking up on some snacks. To help round out your streaming sessions, be sure to read our guides outlining everything that’s hitting HuluDisney Plus, and Amazon.
