While more Bostonians may finally be ready to enjoy warmer temperatures, May is also shaping up to be another great month for couch potatoes, with intriguing new streaming options available on Netflix, HBO Max, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, and Disney Plus.

Netflix has one of its most-anticipated shows finally coming back with “Stranger Things,” as well as the wartime film “Operation Mincemeat.” HBO Max, meanwhile, has the return of critical darling “Hacks” for season 2, and the premiere of “The Time Traveler’s Wife” series. And Disney Plus has your regular dose of “Star Wars” with the debut of its “Obi-Wan Kenobi” series — which, despite what you may have heard, was not filmed in Boston.


Here’s the full list of new movies and TV shows now streaming on Netflix, HBO Max, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, and Disney Plus in May 2022.
