Amid an unprecedented global health dilemma, Netflix announced that it will not run out of new TV shows or movies in the immediate future.
With that announcement, comes a list of show dropping in the platform for the month of May, as well as for the rest of the year. It appears that the most critical problem that the entertainment sectors are dealing with currently is having to write off the rest of the year.
Companies under this industry are left with no option but to completely halt production. These enterprises opted to postpone new release of their upcoming series and movies.
In an attempt to save the rest of the year, large film businesses such as Disney, Warner Bros, Sony and the like continue to tweak their schedules. However, Netflix appears to be immune to the current situation.
Netflix has enough content to release throughout the year
During the annual earnings call that took place recently, Netflix assured its subscribers that it will not fall short of new shows or films in the midst of the pandemic. As a matter of fact, the company is confident it has enough content to last throughout 2020 without having to move around much of its slate or reduce the speed of its releases.
Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer told analyst that the company works completely different from the rest of the industry.
Apparently, Netflix starts shooting pretty far in advance. This was how they were able to prepare its content platform before the coronavirus crisis.
The Crown and Over the Moon is dropping soon
As it stands right now, more than 200 projects are being worked on remotely. This includes scripted programming that’s already filmed, animated series, movies, and an assortment of other titles which Netflix has scheduled for the next 12 months or so.
Case in point, the highly anticipated and award-winning drama The Crown is already in its finishing stages. The animated project Over the Moon is also in the same phase.

What’s coming and what’s leaving Netflix in May
In addition to Netflix’s previous announcement, the platform content for the month of May was unveiled. It appears that the streaming giant’s library is promising and perfect for this time of isolation.
Netflix original Ryan Murphy’s Hollywood, and blockbuster movie Back to the Future is set to launch on May 1. Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, Jarhead, Underworld, as well as Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is also coming on the same day.
Dropping on the following days are Workin’ Moms season four, Grey’s anatomy season 16, and Riverdale season four. The Flash season six and Dynasty season three are set for release after the first half of the month.

While there are new titles coming to Netflix, there are also infamous shows leaving. Some of these are John Carter, Limitless, Dear John and all the Final Destination films.
As of now, it is clear that Netflix is still ahead of its biggest competitors. With 15 million new subscribers — and more than 180 million globally — looking to be entertained, Netflix has become the place that people go for regularly new content.
