Stranger Things, Finn Wolfhard, Charlie Heaton, Natalia Dyer, Tina Rowden/Netflix

You might be holding out for the end of May when Stranger Things Season 4, Vol. 1 premieres, but there’s a lot coming to Netflix in the meantime. Old favorites like Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be making their way onto the platform this month along with nearly 100 other titles.

If you’re looking for something to inspire your summer Soul Surfer (based on surfer Bethany Hamilton’s story) and Hold Your Breath: The Ice Dive (a documentary that follows free diver Johanna Nordblad as she attempts to break the world record for distance traveled under ice with one breath) are some of our early month picks.

Summer vacation is right around the corner. It’s the perfect time to find new inspirations, comfort shows, and dramas you can’t look away from.
