May is the month everything seems to happen in the TV world. Though Emmy eligibility rules are a tad different than usual this year, that hasn’t stopped the annual pre-summer pile-up as networks of all kinds make their final efforts to put some of their highest profile programming in front of as many eyeballs as they can.

There are plenty returning shows, but as usual, we’ll focus this monthly roundup on the brand new shows vying for attention along with all the others. As is also typical for this collection, there are offerings from across broadcast, cable, premium outlets, and streaming services. (And if that wasn’t enough, this month will also bring the arrival of HBO Max.)

Regardless of where you might be searching for TV’s Next Big Thing, this is a month with more than enough options. Our gathering of 15 for May can be found below.

(If you’re curious what you may have missed earlier in the year so far, here are our collections for February, March, and April.)
