The long-awaited return of Stranger Things and Mike Myers’ comedy series The Pentaverate lead Netflix’s May 2022 offerings.

Stranger Things 4: Volume 1 finds Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) settling into her new California home with Joyce (Winona Ryder), Will (Noah Schnapp), and Jonathan Byers (Charlie Heaton). It’s not all sunshine and roses though – her powers are gone, she’s having trouble fitting in at school, and no matter how hard she tries to put all that Hawkins trouble behind her, there’s still unfinished business in the Upside Down. Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin), Max (Sadie Sink), and the rest of the gang will band together once more to battle a new supernatural threat, as Hopper’s (David Harbour) life hangs in the balance. With horror icon Robert Englund joining the cast as the murderous Victor Creel, it’s looking like the newest outing of Netflix’s genre hit will also be its scariest.

It’s been a while since Mike Myers flexed his multi-character comedy chops, and with his new series The Pentaverate, the man who brought Austin Powers to life returns with a new collection of quirky roles for audiences to laugh at. What exactly is “The Pentaverate?” That’s the question at the center of the whole show, as one journalist investigates the secret society of five men who have allegedly controlled the world since the year 1347.  Jennifer Saunders, Jeremy Irons, Keegan-Michael Key, and Ken Jeong also star.

The Lincoln Lawyer is now a television series. Based on the novels by Michael Connelly, the new adaptation was created by David E. Kelley and stars Neve Campbell as Deputy District Attorney Maggie McPherson and Manuel Garcia-Ruffo as Mickey Haller, the famed defense attorney who, instead of working out of an office, runs his business in his Lincoln Town Car. After nearly two years away, Phil Rosenthal is back to do more exploring, and much more eating, in season 5 of his hit food travel series Somebody Feed Phil. And celebrated anthology series Love, Death + Robots returns with more genre-bending animated shorts from some of the best storytellers in the medium.
