The best part about quarantine? Binge-watching your favorite (new and old) series and films on Netflix, of course! The latest batch of film and television shows drops on Netflix Friday and we’re excited to have more content to add to our rotation.
After making a pivot from a traditional theater release, Issa Rae’s The Lovebirds will finally arrive this month, along with a number of original series such as Hollywood and The Eddy, which we highly recommend.
Below, check out the titles coming in May that you absolutely must stream.

Growing up in gang-fueled Oakland, Jahkor Abraham Lincoln is just trying to survive as a Black kid by any means necessary. But when things take a turn for the worse, he finds himself in prison with the one man he never wanted to see: his father.
