What’s Coming to Netflix in May 2021, Including ‘Army of the Dead’ and ‘The Mitchells vs The Machines’

Fern Siegel

Director Zack Snyder goes back to the zombie genre with the widely anticipated “Army of the Dead.” A team is assembled to pull off a heist in a zombie-infested Las Vegas. That means zombie showgirls and a zombie white tiger. The film stars Dave Bautista, Ella Purnell, Omari Hardwick, Ana de la Reguera, and Tig Notaro.

Netflix’s animated comedy “The Mitchells vs The Machines” features a wacky family on a cross-country trip — who suddenly confront a robot apocalypse. That means they have to put aside their own squabbles to save the human race. Abbi Jacobson, Maya Rudolph and Danny McBride voice the crazy characters.

A new chapter unfolds for acting coach Sandy (Michael Douglas) in season three of “The Kominsky Method.” He deals with loss, daunting finances and a major career boost. The new season also reunites Douglas with his longtime screen co-star, Kathleen Turner.
