The New Netflix Originals

House Of Cards – Season 5

House of Cards will be returning to Netflix in May which only means one thing, Kevin Spacey is back as President Frank Underwood. The political drama will return for its 5th season on May 30th and it’s been almost a year and a half since we have heard anything from the Underwood family. The last season ended on a cliff hanger so fans will surely be patiently waiting for that be addressed next month.

F is For Family will return to Netflix for its 2nd season on May 30th. Cred. Netflix

F Is For Family – Season 2

Comedian Bill Burr’s autobiographical animated TV show F is for Family will also return to Netflix for its 2nd season after a great reception from fans on the first season. The show revolves around Burr’s family in the 1970’s, when things we’re a lot different in the world. For those who haven’t seen the show already, it’s like a combination of ‘Family Guy’ and ‘That 70’s Show’ and the comedy by Bill Burr is pure gold. You better catch up before the May 30th release on Netflix.

Aziz Ansari will return as Dev for the 2nd season of Master of None. Cred. Netflix

Master Of None – Season 2

Aziz Ansari and cast will be back for the 2nd season of the comedy TV Master of None, which is actually loosely based on Ansari’s personal life experiences. Ansari plays Dev, a New York City based actor who is trying to figure out what to do with his life while trying to get his career going. Master of None is set to release on Netflix May 12th and fans of Ansari’s stand-up comedy will want to watch this one.

Our Netflix Original movie of the month will be dedicated to Tracy Morgan and his first comedy stand-up special since being in a life threatening accident. Fans of Morgan’s work will definitely want to tune in on May 16th to his stand up comedy titled ‘Staying Alive’, and the title pretty much summarises what it’s going to be about. Morgan has went through a traumatic life changing experience and now he’s going to make us all laugh about it. Classic Tracy Morgan.
