Here is your weekly dose of “Netflix Espresso”, a list of all the shows and movies on Netflix you should be looking out for.
What’s Leaving Netflix
‘Scrubs’ set to leave on May
Netflix is scheduled to drop the medical comedy from its library beginning on May 2. So if you’re a fan, this is probably the best time to binge the show before time runs out.
What’s New on Netflix
Girlboss Season 1
Girlboss is inspired by the New York Times best-selling book #Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso, founder of the fashion brand Nasty Gal. The series centers on Amoruso (Britt Robertson), who began selling vintage clothes on eBay and, by the age of 27, had built the multi-million dollar fashion empire, Nasty Gal.
Its 13-episode first season is now streaming on Netflix.
Bill Nye Saves The World Season 1
Bill Nye Saves the World will mark Nye’s long-awaited return to TV since first emerging as a household name in the 1990s as the creator and star of the Emmy award-winning syndicated television show Bill Nye the Science Guy, which ran for five seasons and introduced millennial audiences to science and engineering.
Each episode will tackle a topic from a scientific point of view, dispelling myths, and refuting anti-scientific claims that may be espoused by politicians, religious leaders or titans of industry.
Season 1 of the talk show is now streaming on Netflix.
What’s Coming Soon on Netflix
This May, Netflix will launch a slew of original programming including scripted dramas and comedies, animated series, documentaries and movies in their library.
Some of the popular shows returning are the latest seasons of House of Cards, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Sense8 among many others.
Riverdale Season 1
Based on the characters of the Archie comics, the series explores the surreality of small-town life as well as the darkness and weirdness bubbling beneath Riverdale’s wholesome facade.
The 13-episode first season of Riverdale arrives on Netflix on May 18.
More CW shows coming soon
The latest installments of superhero shows, Supergirl and The Flash, alongside Supernatural are also scheduled to arrive soon.
The trio’s arrival dates are yet to be announced.
Sherlock Season 4
The latest season of the hit BBC series starring Benedict Cumberbatch will find the mercurial Sherlock Holmes (Cumberbatch), back once more on British soil, as Doctor Watson (Martin Freeman) and his wife, Mary (Amanda Abbington) prepare for their biggest challenge yet: becoming parents.
All three episodes will be available to stream on Netflix beginning on May 15th.
