We'll update this article montly with Netflix announcements about what's leaving, and help you prioritize what to watch now before it's too late.

You can also check out our guides to all the movies and shows new to Netflix this month, as well the Netflix Originals Series and Movies scheduled to premiere the rest of this year. 

What good movies are leaving Netflix in May 2022?

You should have a pretty busy May, if you plan on trying to get through all of the must-watch movies and shows leaving streaming this month. If you've been meaning to get into Downton Abbey, now's the time, because the series departs Netflix at the end of May. The sitcom gem Happy Endings s also leaving (and it's arguably less of a time commitment if you're looking for a new show). On the movies front, a handful of sexy movies including the love triangle drama Closer, which stars Julia Roberts and Natalie Portman, and erotic thrillers like Chloe and Wild Things leave streaming. You'll also probably want to get in another watch of Top Gun before the long-awaited sequel Top Gun: Maverick hits theaters in late May. Find out what else to stream before it's too late below.
