Another month in pop culture heralds a slew of new shows, films and documentaries to stream and the Netflix May releases for 2022 have you sorted, whether you're into European escapism or a classic action thriller. With a variety of releases dropping across the month, there's sure to be something bingeworthy for you to add to your viewing list.

Stranger Things fans can breathe a sigh of relief with the long awaited Stranger Things 4 landing on the streaming service this month. With the group of friends now grown up, the nuances and drama that go hand-in-hand with high school haven't made things any easier and in this vulnerable time, a new supernatural threat emerges, presenting a gruesome mystery.

For those with action on their minds, The Suicide Squad returns to Netflix late in May, with the dysfunctional squad of super-villains infiltrating a remote island in order to destroy a secret government experiment, something to keep us on the edge of our seats. Fan favourite reality show The Circle returns for season four alongside thriller Who Killed Sara? for season three.
