What’s New on Netflix UK: May 1st, 2020

Hollywood season 1 is now available to stream on Netflix UK

The first of May is here, and it’s an exciting day on Netflix UK today with the addition of 45 new titles. There’s also a chunk of titles that left the UK library today, but with so many new titles to binge, you’ll certainly be keeping yourself busy this weekend. Here’s what’s new on Netflix UK for May 1st, 2020.

First of all, here are today’s top highlights:


Hollywood: Limited Series N

Seasons: 1 | Episodes: 7
Genre: Drama
Cast: David Corenswet, Darren Criss, Laura Harrier, Joe Mantello, Dylan McDermott

Glee and American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy drops his first full Netflix Original series with Hollywood today. The limited series is a period piece, set in the golden age of Hollywood as we follow a group of aspiring young actors and filmmakers attempt to make it big.


The Half of It (2020) N

Director: Alice Wu
Genre: Comedy, Drama | Runtime: 104 Minutes
Cast: Leah Lewis, Enrique Murciano, Beck Ann Baker, Alexxis Lemire, Daniel Diemer

Writing and directing her second feature film, Alice Wu’s The Half of It will definitely be one of the stand out Originals of May. Teen-dramas have been incredibly successful on Netflix, therefore we expect to see The Half of It beat Tall Girl’s 41 million views.

Ellie Chu, friendless and shy straight-A student runs a business in school, making money off the students who want her to do their homework. She receives an unusual request from one of the jocks, Paul, to help him write a letter to Aster Flores, the girl he loves. The unlikely pair strike up a friendship, but it becomes extremely complicated when Ellie finds herself falling for Aster too.


Modern Family & New Girl

Two extremely surprising additions to the Netflix UK library today are all 7 and 11 seasons of New Girl and Modern Family, respectively.

Modern Family was once one of the most popular network television series in America and would have been a perfect addition to the Disney+ library in the UK. Well, Disney+’s loss is a Netflix UK gain as all 250 episodes are now available to stream!

Another Disney property thanks to the acquisition of Fox, we’re not too surprised that New Girl came to Netflix over Disney+, thanks to the content of the series being much more mature. All 7 seasons, a total of 146 episodes, are now available to binge!
