Here are the new TV shows and films you should absolutely binge in May 2021

By Tim Augustin - 8 May 2021

Army of the Dead, Lucifer, Cruella and more!

Army of the Dead (21 May) - Netflix

Hot off his Justice League cut, Zack Snyder has a big new heist movie coming to Netflix. Army of the Dead follows a crew of thieves and soldiers as they race against time to pull off a heist in Las Vegas before the entire place is nuked. You know, because it’s overrun by zombies. Oh, did I forget to mention the zombies? They’re not your average shambling undead, either - they’re strong, fast and united under a strangely supernatural connection to their leader. 

Also, there are zombie tigers. 


Master of None Season 3 (23 May) - Netflix

Master of None’s last season came out four years ago and had a pretty conclusive ending, so I wasn’t really expecting a continuation. Technically, it still isn’t getting one. The Emmy Award-winning series is pivoting to a new five-episode season called Master of None Presents: Moments in Love, focusing on Dev’s friend Denise (Lena Waithe) and her partner Alicia (Naomi Ackie). The entire season is written and directed by Aziz Ansari with Waithe co-writing, so one can expect it to retain the melancholy slice-of-life feel that has made past seasons so appealing. 


Eden (27 May) - Netflix

This 3D-CG anime is produced by a Chinese animation studio called CGCG, which might explain its unique visuals. Eden is created by Yasuhiro Irie, following a girl's adventures in a Mad Max-like apocalyptic wasteland. The girl, accompanied by two robots, will also have to deal with a rather menacing-looking droid with a grudge against humanity. 


Lucifer Season 5 Part 2 (28 May) - Netflix

We know that a lot of Lucifer fans are out here waiting to get their fix - and soon, they can! Season 5 is finishing its run with a new batch of episodes which features, among other things, an Earthly visit from God himself. Hey, this is a show about the devil. It was only a matter of time. Lucifer and God lock horns as tensions run high, and that situation only gets worse when the big guy in the sky drops a bombshell on Lucifer. 


Cruella (28 May) - Disney+

This Disney flick acts as an origin story for the infamous puppy-killer Cruella de Vil, set before the events of 101 Dalmatians in 1970s London. The punk rock revolution is hitting its peak, and a young grifter named Estella (Emma Stone) comes into the scene determined to make a name for herself with her designs. After befriending a pair of thieves and building a life with them on London’s streets, her flair for fashion catches the eye of one Baroness von Hellman - a fashion legend played by Emma Thompson. Cruella is hitting theaters on 28 May, but you can also watch it via Disney+ Premier Access on the same day.
