Now that you've had a chance to fully digest all six hours of Zack Snyder's Justice League cut on HBO Max, the director's other highly anticipated film arrives this month on Netflix. Army of the Dead, which he described to EW as "a full-blown, balls-to-the-wall zombie heist movie," features stars including Guardians of the Galaxy's Dave Bautista, Ella Purnell, Power alum Omari Hardwick, stand-up Tig Notaro and Narcos' Ana de la Reguera.

The Tom Ellis-starring Lucifer is also back in May on Netflix with season 5B, which should see Lucy spending a little quality time with his brothers, Amenadiel, and Michael, and their dear old dad -- God.

"It takes him back to a very primal place, and his feelings are very raw," Ellis previously told EW. "I'm just so happy and so proud of what we've done. The first two episodes of the second half of season 5 are my two favorite episodes of the season, without a doubt."

Although there is no date just yet, Netflix recently announced that Aziz Ansari and Alan Yang's Master of None will return for season 3 this May (season 2 dropped in 2017). According to Variety, the new season is expected to be focused on Lena Waithe's character, Denise. Ansari previously addressed sexual misconduct allegations from 2018 in a Netflix comedy special, which hit the streaming platform in 2019.

In addition to all of the original content, Netflix will become the destination for Back to the Future trilogy fans looking to see all three movies about Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox), Emmett "Doc" Brown (Christopher Lloyd) and a time-traveling DeLorean in one place.
