(RNN) – For those anxiously awaiting a new season of House of Cards, the Donald Trump presidency has offered an alternative source of political drama.

But there’s no substitute for the fictional thing.

Netflix’s original political thriller will return for its fifth season on May 30.

That’s a more than a whole month away, however. In the meantime, there are other high-profile series and movies coming to Netflix in May, including new installments of several Netflix original series.

Forrest Gump (May 1), season two of The Last Kingdom (May 5), season two of Master of None (May 12) and season four of Sherlock (May 15) all come out in the first half of the month.

In the latter half of May, season three of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (May 19), Inglourious Basterds (May 22) and season three of Bloodline (May 26) will come to the streaming service.

Then the aforementioned House of Cards season five goes live on May 30. For those who need to unwind after binge watching it, Marvel’s psychedelic superhero film, Dr. Strange, starts streaming on the same day.

There are a few notable series and movies leaving Netflix in May. Those include three Jurassic Park movies, which leave on May 1, and all nine seasons of Scrubs, which leave on May 2.
