May is (unofficially) comedy month on Netflix.

The streaming service's originals lineup is led by comedy series Dear White People, which starts Season 2 on May 4; Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, which returns for Season 4 on May 30; stand-up specials from brilliant comics John Mulaney (May 1), Ali Wong (May 13), Tig Notaro (May 22) and Steve Martin and Martin Short (May 25); up-and-coming comic Michelle Wolf's talk show The Break (May 27); and two installments of David Letterman's talk show, with Tina Fey (May 4) and Howard Stern (May 31).

Non-Netflix original shows joining the streaming library include the current seasons of The CW's shows, including The Flash, Riverdale and Supernatural, which will be coming after their broadcast season finales.

Movie highlights include Coco (May 29), Shrek (May 1), Amelie (May 1) and The 40 Year Old Virgin (May 16).
