What’s new on Netflix in May 2022 !

Netflix hopes to re-enter the market in May 2022 with the return of some of its most popular shows following a disastrous first quarter. A three-year hiatus has finally ended for the ’80s-set sci-fi thriller “Stranger Things” (May 27). After Joyce (Winona Ryder) moved her family to California, including Will (Hubie Halloween– Noah Schnapp) and Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), the gang split up and went their ways. However, the Upside Down isn’t finished with them yet, and a spring-break reunion promises even more adventures for the trio. The first five occurrences of the season will be released on the 27th, followed by the remaining four episodes on July 1.

Several fan favorites have been renewed for new seasons on Netflix, including Season 4 of the social media/catfishing competition “The Circle” (which premieres on May 4 with new episodes every week). It is a new season of the Australian dating show “Love on the Spectrum” (which premieres May 18); and Season 5 of the comforting food/travel show “Somebody Feed Phil” (May 25).

In addition, all six seasons of “Downton Abbey” and all three seasons of “Happy Endings” will leave Netflix at the end of the month, while “When Harry Met Sally,” “You’ve Got Mail,” and “Crazy, Stupid Love” will be added on May 1. We’ve assembled a list of the finest shows and films to catch up on in May 2022, so enjoy! As usual, they’re all part of your Netflix Originals membership.

Rotten Tomatoes Ratings:Updated Soon

Freediver Johanna Nordblad seeks to break the world record for the distance traveled beneath the ice with one breath in a new documentary about her journey. Nordblad is a well-known ice diver from Finland. She has already set a world record in her field of work. When Johana set the record for women’s freediving with fins in 2004, she did so with confidence. By not exhaling, she completed 158 meters of open water in 6 minutes and 39 seconds.

She’s confident in her abilities and believes she could go further if she wanted to. However, the situation in which she’ll be venturing is difficult. Nobody has ever undertaken the challenge she’s taking on, and there’s a good reason. Moreover, ohana is a hyperthermia patient, and diving under 80 meters of freezing water is not an easy task for her.

Director:Michelle Buteau
Released Date:10 May 2022
Rotten Tomatoes Ratings:81%

For its most popular reality programs, Netflix continues to release a fixed number of episodes each week rather than publishing the entire season at once. Real-life competitions benefit from this because it keeps viewers engaged and prevents spoilers from being leaked before the final episode is shown. It’s no secret that The Circle regularly surprises even the most well-informed participants with narrative twists that leave them scratching their heads. It was a challenge for the Circle chat participants to figure out who the genuine person was and block the doppelganger in Season 3.

It’s been a while since Sebastian Ortega’s popular Argentinian series received a new season, but that’s about to change in 2022! Those who are eagerly awaiting the next season’s debut on Jan. 19 are already speculating about the possibility of the fifth season of El Marginal.
