It's the final weekend of May, and Netflix is sending off the month with a few last-minute additions. This weekend, the streaming giant will be keeping new additions relatively light, only stocking a total of three titles in the streaming library, but that doesn’t mean that they aren't big on the entertainment factor. This weekend's additions include the highly-anticipated debut of one Steve Carell-starring comedy series as well as a docuseries that will get your taste buds craving something new.
The new additions unfortunately come at a substantial loss. While new additions typically outnumber the titles set to leave, this weekend will be slightly different. Subscribers will have to say goodbye to 17 titles. The titles are departing for good reason, though, as they will be making room for the dozens of new titles set to be added in June 2020.
Keep scrolling to see everything coming to Netflix this weekend, and don't forget to check out all of the titles that will be leaving before the end of the month.

Must-Watch Recent Addition: ‘Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness’
It's the story that took the internet by storm, and even caught the attention of President Donald Trump himself: Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness. And if you haven’t already caved and watched it, it should be next on your binge list.
From the producers behind the streaming service's FYRE: The Greatest Party That Never Happened, the docuseries sheds light on the rivalry between Joe Exotic, the self-proclaimed "Tiger King" who owned an Oklahoma roadside zoo, and Carole Baskin, an animal activist and owner of a big cat sanctuary, that eventually led to Exotic's arrest for a murder-for-hire plot. Filled with magic, drugs, homemade country-music videos, and polygamy, the docuseries was so popular that it even prompted a reunion episode.
