New on Netflix in May 2023: “Queen Charlotte”, “XO, Kitty” and more

The month of May promises to be a time of great royal fanfare with the coronation of King Charles. Meanwhile, Netflix gets into the action with some royal additions to its film and TV catalogue.

The streaming service is set to add more than 100 titles in May, including Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story. A prequel to the steamy Regency-era drama Bridgerton, this new six-part series focuses on the love story of young Queen Charlotte and her rise to power.

Other royal themes include the 2009 film The Young Victoria, as well as a new original film Royalteen: Princess Margrethe and the docu-series Queen Cleopatra.

The new month also brings another season of Tim Robinson’s hit sketch comedy I Think You Should Leave, as well as stand-up specials from Wanda Sykes and Hannah Gadsby. Long-time hits like “Queer Eye” and “Selling Sunset” are also returning with new seasons.
