May is the busiest month of the year so far for Netflix.

A slew of original titles are set to be released over the coming four weeks, hoping to keep users on their sofas despite the approaching summer.

These include a brand new season of the now Aziz Ansari-less Master of None, the final season of Castlevania and Zack Snyder’s action zombie thriller Army of the Dead.

Meanwhile, Amy Adams’s long-delayed mystery drama,The Woman in the Window, is guaranteed to become the streaming service’s next big hit.
