This month Netflix has scheduled more than 30 original offerings, from TV series, to stand-up specials, to original movies. Plus, the streaming giant is offering other classic faves like Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Erin Brockovich, Life, My Girl, six Pocoyo specials and much more.

Here are our top five picks for what’s new on Netflix in May, along with all the other programming scheduled for the month. We’ve also included a list of what’s leaving Netflix in May so make sure you catch those shows before they’re gone. For example, if you want to watch Mean Girls, or The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, you better get on it!
