Films & TV Series Coming to (and Leaving) Netflix’s Streaming Library In May

Films & TV Series Coming to (and Leaving) Netflix's Streaming Library In May

It’s not quite the end to another month, although we’re just 8 days away – a time when Netflix makes its usual monthly announcement of films that will be added to its streaming library. So if any of the below listed movies and/or TV series is of interest to you, add them to your watch-lists when they become available as of May 1!

This is also when Netflix’s usual monthly purge of films from its streaming library, happens. So if any of those films (also listed below) that will be exiting next month are of interest to you, now is the time to watch them, because starting May 1, 2015, they’ll be gone!

First, here’s the complete list of titles that will be added, starting on May 1 – of note, there’s the Jimi Hendrix film that Andre Benjamin starred in, “All Is By My Side,” as well as the Anita Hill documentary, “Anita,” “Fruitvale Station,” “Girlhood” (poster above) and others… 

Underneath that list, you’ll find those films that Netflix will be saying goodbye to (there’s Denzel Washington’s “Flight” to start):
