Pass the popcorn! Everything new that’s landing on Netflix this May

The weeks really are flying by lately and believe or not, we’re at the beginning of a brand new month once again. As we enter the month of May, we can look forward to some sunnier, brighter days ahead, we can start to plan the numerous BBQ’s we’re bound to host and we can finally start to count down the days until our big summer holiday.

However, as we’re in Ireland there will of course be plenty of dreary evenings and dull days in our not-so-distant future. To keep us company and cosy, Netflix are adding a whole host of new shows and movies to their streaming service, throughout the month of May.

From reality shows to rom-coms and binge-worthy dramas, there really is something for everyone and every mood!
