An incredibly busy week is awaiting new Netflix releases, with a mixture of big new Netflix Originals on the way. We’ve also got several highly anticipated licensed shows on the way, plus a mixture of movies, both new and old, coming courtesy of the first-of-the-month changeover. 

If you want to familiarize yourself with the full list of what’s coming up on Netflix throughout May 2024, we’ve got you covered with all the new movies, series, and games coming up throughout the month. Given this list is quite long, we won’t be including the list of departures below, but you can find all the big removals for May 2024 here.

Now let’s get into three things we can’t wait to watch this week:

Most Anticipated New Releases on Netflix This Week

A Man in Full (Limited Series) Netflix Original

Coming to Netflix: Thursday

The new David E. Kelley adaptation of Tom Wolfe’s classic novel will kick off the month strong on the new Netflix Original series front.

Headlined by Lucy Liu, Diane Lane, and Jeff Daniels, the series follows what happens when a business mogul in charge of a real estate empire sees it start to crumble as his many debts begin getting called in.

Boiling Point (Season 1)

Coming to Netflix: Monday

One of the best British shows in recent years from the BBC is set to make its US debut via Netflix to kick off the week.

Set just months after the movie of the same name, the series, set in a bustling kitchen, follows Andy Jones (played by Stephen Graham) as he recovers from a heart attack. Alongside him, Carly (played by Vinette Robinson) seeks to make a big name for herself in a new restaurant.


Unfrosted (2024) Netflix Original

Coming to Netflix: Friday

Netflix dubs this surreal new ensemble comedy movie a “tale of ambition, betrayal, sugar, and menacing milkmen.” The plot of the comedy is about the breakfast wars with Kellogg’s going head-to-head against Post Cereal.

Among the cast mentioned includes Seinfeld himself plus Melissa McCarthy, Jim Gaffigan, Hugh Grant, Amy Schumer, Peter Dinklage, Bill Burr, Dan Levy, and many more recognizable faces.
