Everything leaving Netflix in May 2022

As you may have heard, Netflix had a rough quarter with subscriber losses and its stock market price has gone way down. But that’s not the reason why so many of your favorite movies and TV shows will soon be shown the door. Netflix may have an abundance of content, but it still has to bend to the reality of the streaming era. It can’t keep what it doesn’t own. That means you only have a limited time to catch some of the best films and series before they take off for another streaming service or simply disappear for a while. The good news is that you can consult our list of everything leaving Netflix in May and make your picks. We’ve made our selections in bold.

Trying to fit in a pile of great movies before they’re gone from Netflix at the end of the month? Check our other monthly roundup of everything leaving Hulu.

Our top pick for May

The Addams Family (1991)

The Addams Family
57 %
6.9/10
pg-13 102m
Genre Comedy, Fantasy
Stars Raul Julia, Anjelica Huston, Christopher Lloyd
Directed by Barry Sonnenfeld
Most theatrical adaptations of TV shows are terrible movies. But The Addams Family is delightfully unhinged and even more charming than the television show and comics that spawned it. The late Raul Julia gives a dazzling performance as Gomez Addams alongside Anjelica Huston as his wife, Morticia. Christina Ricci also had a star-making turn as their daughter, Wednesday Addams. Twenty-five years after Gomez’s beloved brother, Fester, disappeared, Gordon Craven (Christopher Lloyd) is sent by his mother, Abigail (Elizabeth Wilson), to pose as Fester and help her steal the Addams’ fortune. Much to his surprise, Gordon discovers that he likes being an Addams, and the family embraces him as one of their own even though Morticia has her suspicions about him.
