Spring has sprung and it's already May. With the new month, there are many streaming shows to discover. First we need to know: are you ready to dance with the devil? Luciferreturns for the second half of Season 5 on Netflix in May, along with a lot of other great streaming choices. Netflix is also dropping Season 3 of Master of None May 23rd after a long hiatus. There haven't been new episodes of the Aziz Ansari and Alan Yang comedy since 2017, so the announcement of new episodes came as quite a surprise. 

If movies are more your jam, Netflix is adding all three Back to the Future movies to the lineup at the very top of the month, along with The Land Before Time, if you have young dinosaur lovers you need to entertain. Plus, Jurassic Park: Camp Cretaceous Season 3 arrives later in the month for slightly older dino lovers, or just dino lovers in general. 

May will also bringSelena: The Series Part 2 to the service, as well as the final season of The Kominsky Method, so there's a little something for everyone in the mix.
