Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Instant Video May 2015: The Best Of What’s New To Streaming


April was a busy month for new movies and TV series. After binge-watching Marvel's Daredevil on Netflix, it's time to queue up fresh new content to enjoy in the month of May.

Sure, there were lots of movies and TV series released on Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Instant Video last month, but we all know the drill. With the start of a new month comes brand new content coming to the three popular streaming services, and this month there is lots to look forward to.

Also, while we all will see The Avengers: Age of Ultron when it's released on May 1, chances are, like us, you enjoy watching your movies from the comfort of your own home. Well, get the popcorn ready because there will be lots of content worth looking out for this month.

Here is the best of what's streaming on Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Instant Video for May 2015.

Streaming On Netflix

Get ready to fall in love with more Netflix original series. The streaming service will premiere a new drama called Grace and Frankie on May 8, starring Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin. The plot follows two women who butt heads but come together after their husbands fall in love with each other and leave them.

Netflix will also release another original series called Between, which is a Canadian science fiction-thriller staring Jennette McCurdy, known for Nickelodeon's iCarly. But don't prepare to binge-watch this one. Netflix will release six one-hour episodes each week starting May 21.
