Netflix has a great week of new movies and shows with plenty to keep you busy in mid-May. Here’s a rundown of the new movies and shows coming to Netflix (in the US – other regions will vary) between May 9 and May 15, 2022.
As always, we’ll keep you updated on all the new movies and shows added to Netflix daily through our new Netflix hub. If you missed any of the new movies that hit Netflix last week, check out our highlights here.
Now let’s get into our three most anticipated releases on Netflix over the next 7 days:
foreigner (Season 5)
Coming to Netflix: Tuesday
Netflix US is significantly behind when it comes to Outlander, but if you’re not particularly fussed about watching the show if and when it premieres, Netflix is the perfect way to watch foreigner†
12 episodes make up Outlander’s fifth season, which continues to be well-reviewed by fans and critics alike. Season 5 takes place on the eve of the American Revolutionary War.
The sixth season of foreigner just aired, but won’t be on Netflix US for a few years.
Operation Minced Meat (2022) No
Coming to Netflix: Wednesday
Colin Firth and Matthew Macfadyen headline this new film that aims to retell the events of one of the most famous operations in World War II.
John Madden will direct the film with a running time of 2 hours and 8 minutes.
Here’s what to expect from the historical war film:
“In 1943, two British intelligence officers conceived Operation Mincemeat, in which their plan to drop a corpse with false papers off the coast of Spain would lead Nazi spies to believe that the Allies were planning to attack through Greece rather than through Greece. Sicily.”
The film will not be coming to Netflix worldwide, unfortunately, as it was released in theaters in certain regions by Warner Bros.

Coming to Netflix: Friday
An all-new drama series hits Netflix this Friday that adapts Michael Connelly’s book, The Brass Verdict, which was most recently made into the 2013 Lionsgate film starring Matthew McConaughey.
