The upcoming Netflix Canada May 2020 release schedule has been announced. These are all the big original exclusive series and movies from the streaming service for the month. They include a range of content from completely fresh concepts to exciting sequels or even follow-ups for existing Netflix original releases.
This includes series; films, comedy, documentary, for kids and anime. Beyond original releases are the inclusion of notable other movies that are being added onto the service from third party groups. We are lucky to cover a number of these releases prior to launch and you can see a "Review" tag on what we either have reviews on or will be reviewing around launch so look forward to those.
We try our best to get this list released monthly, so tune in around the start of each month for a brand new selection of what’s to come. Hopefully there’s something exciting to stream, for anyone within the family.
