Netflix has a bumper week of new movies and shows coming up with plenty to keep you busy throughout the middle of May. Here’s a rundown of the new movies and shows coming to Netflix (in the US – other regions will vary) between May 9th and May 15th, 2022.
As always, we’ll be keeping you posted on all the new movies and shows added to Netflix on a daily basis via our what’s new on Netflix hub. If you missed any of the new movies that hit Netflix last week, check out our highlights here.
Now let’s get into our three most anticipated releases on Netflix over the next 7 days:
Outlander (Season 5)
Coming to Netflix: Tuesday
Netflix US is considerably behind when it comes to Outlander but if you’re not particularly fussed about watching the show as and when it premieres, Netflix is the perfect way to watch Outlander.
Twelve episodes make up the fifth season of Outlander which continues to be well-reviewed by fans and critics alike. Season 5 takes place on the eve of the American Revolutionary War.
The sixth season of Outlander has just concluded airing but won’t be on Netflix US for another couple of years.
Operation Mincemeat (2022) N
Coming to Netflix: Wednesday
Colin Firth and Matthew Macfadyen headline this new movie that seeks to retell the events of one of the most famous operations in the Second World War.
John Madden directs the movie which has a runtime of 2 hours and 8 minutes.
Here’s what you can expect from the historical war movie:
“In 1943, two British intelligence officers concoct Operation Mincemeat, wherein their plan to drop a corpse with false papers off the coast of Spain would fool Nazi spies into believing the Allied forces were planning to attack by way of Greece rather than Sicily.”
The movie isn’t coming to Netflix globally, sadly as it received a theatrical release by Warner Bros. in select regions.
The Lincoln Lawyer (Season 1)
Coming to Netflix: Friday
Heading to Netflix this Friday is an all-new drama series that adapts the Michael Connelly book, The Brass Verdict, which was last previously adapted in the 2013 Lionsgate movie starring Matthew McConaughey.
David E. Kelley is working on the series behind the scenes and is best known for his work on the likes of Doogie Howser, M.D., Boston Legal, Big Little Lies, and Goliath.
Among the cast for the series includes Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Neve Campbell, Becki Newton, and azz Raycole.
