What's New on Netflix in May, and Our Top 5 Picks

April was a bit light on Netflix Originals, and though there's certainly more next month, not a lot is known about some of them, be it the comedy series Lady Dynamite starring Maria Bamford or French drama Marseille with Gérard Depardieu in the lead. So for the five picks below, we are relying on instinct and history. And after that, you can find the full list of movies and TV shows that are headed your way during the month of May.

Gotham: Season 1 / May 1
Gotham isn't about Batman, but rather the life and rise of Detective James Gordon to what can ultimately be assumed as the Gotham City Police Department's (GCPD) Commissioner. The series' two seasons have been equally well received by critics, and a third season is on its way.
