What's coming to Netflix US and UK in May 2022? That's the question on everyone's lips now that we're entering a new month of the year.

The streaming service is pretty much our best friend, providing us with ample entertainment and the perfect doses of escapism when we need it thanks to its roster of top-quality content. So far, this year alone,  we've had everything from the return of hit shows like Love is Blind,  Bridgerton season 2, and classic movies, to a fresh batch of Netflix originals added to the platform's catalog (including one of our current faves, Inventing Anna)—all of which have been the perfect escapism from the slowly healing chaos of the wold. 

But while there are some classic shows and movies leaving Netflix, what can we expect this month? Here's a definitive list of what's new on Netflix this month, including the highlights...

Coming to Netflix in May 2022: the highlights

Stranger Things season 4, May 27 

It's been a long time since we saw the Stranger Things kids, and well, they're not as small as they once were. The spooky Netflix favourite returns this month for its fourth season, with part one picking up six months since the Battle of Starcourt, which brought terror and destruction to Hawkins. The official synopsis reads: "Struggling with the aftermath, our group of friends are separated for the first time – and navigating the complexities of high school hasn't made things any easier." The second half of season 4 will drop six weeks later, on 1 July. 

Bling Empire season 2, May 13

Bling Empire season 2 will hit Netflix on Friday, May 13 with eight 40-minute long episodes for your reality TV bingeing pleasure. Last time we saw the gang together, which at the MTV Movie Awards 2021, Kelly teased that fans could expect "more glam, more jewelry and more fun stuff, but real stories."Well, the time has finally come and we can't wait!
