Here is everything that's being added to Netflix that you need to watch
Netflix is the best way to procrastinate during university.
However, with summer fast approaching, now is the perfect time to start planning what TV shows and films are going to be on your binge list. Take a look at six of the newest Netflix releases.
1. Dead to Me
aside from all the secrecy, lies, and murder, Dead to Me is also ridiculously beautiful pic.twitter.com/asgDAGa1zI

Jen is a widow determined to solve her husband’s recent hit-and-run murder. Judy is a free spirit who’s recently suffered her own tragic loss. When the two women meet at a support group, they become unlikely friends despite their polar-opposite personalities. But as they bond, Judy desperately tries to shield Jen from a shocking secret that could destroy her life as she knows it.
Released 3rd May.

The Society follows a group of teenagers who are returned to what appears to be their New England town (following a failed camping trip), left without any trace of their parents. As they struggle to figure out what has happened to them and how to get home, they must establish order if they want to survive. The series is a modern take on Lord of the Flies.
Released 10th May.
3. The Rain (Series 2)

Once you get past the awfully-dubbed voices (I recommend changing your settings to the original Danish setting and watching with English subtitles), this show is amazing.
Six years after a brutal virus carried by the rain wipes out almost all humans in Scandinavia, two Danish siblings emerge from the safety of their bunker to find all remnants of civilisation gone. Soon they join a group of young survivors and together set out on a quest through an abandoned Scandinavia, searching for any sign of life.
Released 17th May.
4. Rim of the World
Four kids. One summer camp. One alien invasion. One adventure carrying the one object that can defeat the aliens across war-torn Los Angeles. This is Netflix's new show 'Rim of the World.' https://t.co/gsimleeOhJ
— WIRED (@WIRED) May 24, 2019
Summer camp at Rim of the World has barely begun when four misfit teenagers find they’ve got bigger problems when aliens suddenly invade the planet. Alone in a campground, the kids are unexpectedly entrusted with a key that carries the secret to stopping the invasion. Without any adults or electronics to help guide the way, it’s clear what they must do: band together, conquer their fears, and save the world.
Released 24th May.
5. What / If
Are you ready to have your weekend derailed? What/If is now streaming. pic.twitter.com/htMabY7Ipj
— What / If (@what_if) May 24, 2019
Thriller What / If explores the ripple effects of what happens when acceptable people start doing unacceptable things. The series focuses on a mysterious woman's lucrative but dubious offer to a cash-strapped pair of San Francisco newlyweds.
Perfect for fans of Dead to Me.
Released 24th May.
