For the passionate viewers, we have two spin-offs from highly popular franchises coming to expand those universes and get fans excited. On one hand, there's a period romance filled with controversy, intrigue, and all the twists and turns that author Shonda Rhimes loves to incorporate in her stories.

But if you're not in the mood for romance and prefer action-packed thrills, Netflix also brings two major premieres to spice up your May.

To wrap up the recommendations, we have a mystery that will keep you guessing until the end of May. Who is the killer? Do all the suspicions make sense, or is there a great secret behind the protagonist's eerie silence in this Spanish series?

5. Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story
May starts off in grand style for Bridgerton fans. After much anticipation, the miniseries "Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story" finally arrives to delve deeper into the story of one of the saga's most intriguing characters—the monarch herself. Taking a step back in time, we discover that she wasn't always part of the royal family, and her entry into the world of kings and princes was surrounded by controversy and controversy.
While the premise may seem like one of those common racial dramas in cinema, the charm of this new series lies in the writing of author Shonda Rhimes, who is already well-known for her work on Grey's Anatomy and has proven her skill in turning ordinary narratives into great stories.
"Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story" premieres on Netflix on May 4th.
4. Black Knight
Coming directly from South Korea, "Black Knight" is a kind of modern-day Mad Max that doesn't shy away from drawing parallels to the pandemic period we've experienced in recent years.
In this post-apocalyptic world, the planet has become inhospitable due to pollution. As a result, humanity lives isolated in closed-off areas and relies on couriers to deliver supplies and resources to these locations. The series follows one of these professionals who risks their life crossing these deadly deserts.
The beauty of it all lies not only in the obvious analogy with the pandemic situation but also in how it has transformed into a modern-day Mad Max adventure. The aesthetic of the classic film is present, making this journey quite intriguing.
3. XO, Kitty
Emerging from the universe of "To All the Boys I've Loved Before," "XO, Kitty" is the spin-off that fulfills the dreams of many young girls around the world. After all, what teenager wouldn't want to move to South Korea in search of a great love story?
The series continues the events of the movies and focuses on the protagonist Kitty (Anna Cathcart), who proclaims herself an expert in relationships. Well, other people's relationships, as her own love life seems to be taking off just now and with a few complications.
That's because she ended the last film by entering into a long-distance relationship, and everyone knows that's not easy. Thus, she decides to move to Seoul to make the romance easier. Little does she know that this will bring many other problems—especially when her heart becomes divided.
"XO, Kitty" arrives on Netflix on May 18th.
The Spanish series "Muted" is one of those that captivates the audience with just its synopsis. It tells the story of a young man accused of murdering his parents six years ago, and since the tragedy, he hasn't spoken a single word. The catch is that he is named the heir to the family's assets and, in order to claim everything, he must undergo a psychiatric evaluation.
And that's where the character's self-imposed silence opens up a realm of immense doubt and an even bigger mystery. As the psychiatrist in charge of the case delves deeper into it, she begins to suspect everything that actually happened.
"Muted" arrives quietly on May 19th.
Closing our list of Netflix premieres in May is none other than Arnold Schwarzenegger. The action movie star makes his debut in the world of TV series with "Fubar," an adventure with a classic tone and that spirit we've come to expect from the tough guy—and love.
The old Terminator plays a CIA agent who is on the verge of retiring and already dreams of a well-deserved rest. However, he discovers a terrible family secret that puts him on one final mission.
"Fubar" brings our Conan smashing everything on Netflix on May 25th.
