We’ve got the only roundup you need of new movies and TV shows available to stream this month.

There’s a ton of new blockbusters and must-watch shows coming out in May, including the highly anticipated true crime drama The staircase.

The new season of The stewardess Also landing on NOW soon, and viewers can prepare for a bumpy ride!

It’s definitely another big month for entertainment, so we asked Capital’s Rob Howard to share his top picks he’s adding to his May TV schedule…

The staircase

I have already watched the first three episodes of The staircase and I’m addicted. I can’t wait to see the next episodes when they come out on NOW! I’m a big fan of true crime, so naturally I read a lot about the case of Michael Peterson and the conspiracy theory surrounding it.

The story has so many twists and turns that it really is perfect for a TV series.

I love the generally clean and lovable cast of Colin Firth as Peterson, the author on trial for the murder of his wife Kathleen (Toni Collette). I can’t wait to see if we come to believe that it was all just an unfortunate accident, or if something more sinister happened.

The staircase is available to stream on NOW starting May 5, with new episodes every week.

The air hostess season 2

The stewardess

First season of The stewardess was absolutely fantastic. It was one of those series that I casually put on and within five minutes I was hooked. I found myself canceling plans to stay and watch more!

Not only is it a thriller, but it’s also funny, which I guess you should expect with Kaley Cuoco from The Big Bang Theory on your mind.

After finding herself at the center of a murder mystery case in Season 1, Season 2 sees Cassie (Kaley Cuoco) move to Los Angeles to try and live a sober life while moonlighting as an asset to the CIA. I can’t wait to see what happens next!

You can catch up on Season 1 of The stewardess now. Season 2 is coming from May 26, prepare for the impact!

Ghostbusters: Afterlife

When I first saw the trailers Ghostbusters: Afterlife, I thought nothing could live up to the iconic originals, but this movie really does! I went to see it at the cinema because it features my favorite actor Paul Rudd, and I’m so happy! It was an absolute joy and had everything you would expect from a blockbuster.

Besides having a great nostalgic feel with all the nods to the originals, it’s extremely funny. I can’t wait to see it again and catch all the easter eggs and references I missed the first time around.

Flow Ghostbusters: Afterlife on NOW starting May 13.

Rob’s top TV picks are just the beginning! Even more must-see entertainment is available to stream in the coming weeks on NOW!
