May is going to be a busy month for streaming subscriptions.

On Netflix, Season 3 of The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt will bring Kimmy face to face with Richard Wayne Gary Wayne (John Hamm), her kidnapper from the first season. Meanwhile, Lillian will continue her fight against gentrification in her neighborthood, and Tidus will go full Lemonade. A radical social agenda, Beyoncé references, and John Hamm? Count us in. Netflix will also post Casting Jonbenet, a documentary feature that takes a critical eye to the Jonbenet Ramsey media coverage. Add onto that Marvel’s Doctor Strange, Master of None, and Tracy Morgan: Staying Alive, and that’s a formula for a successful May all on its own.

On Amazon, the Oscar winning film Manchester by the Sea will be available to stream. Amazon struck new ground for streaming servies when it produced the movie and successfully shepparded it all the way through theaters to an Acadmey Award win. Now that the movie is available to Amazon’s subscribers, it will be interesting to see if it finds a second burst of life. Oh, also there’s a little thing called Poldark Season 2 arriving on Prime this month. If you’re not excited about that, then I understand. We can’t all be hip.

Hulu is also expecting to have a big month. The Handmaid’s Tale is expected to be the biggest Hulu original series of all time. Elizabeth Moss is in the lead role of this widly beloved and politicaly relevant story, being adapted for the samll screen. Hulu is also delivering an original documentary feature, Bill & Batman, about Batman creator Bill Finger, who was denied credit he was owed for the creation of the character, due to the political dealings of his partner Bob Kane. The film will shine a much-deserved spotlight on the true creater of the Dark Knight and some the greatest characters in DC Comics today.

Finally, HBO will be adding some new movies to their streaming services. Between Good Will Hunting, The Bourne Ultimatum, and Jason Bourne, HBO will be the place to get your Matt Damon fix this month. HBO will also be adding Tom Hanks’ Sully to their lineup this month, for those looking for something with more prestige.
