New on Starz: All the Movies and TV Coming in May

We realize that we’re already a few days into May, but you still want to know about all the film and television headed to Starz this month, don’t you? We had a sneaking suspicion you did, so we went ahead and broke down all the channel’s new streaming additions. Are we heroes for doing so? Of course we are.

The most exciting part of Starz’s May slate is its movies, many of which are classics no adult can excuse not having seen by now. Foremost among those, perhaps, is 1996 crime drama Fargo (May 1), which we ranked among the Coen Brothers’ very best films back in 2016. That Frances McDormand and William H. Macy starrer isn’t the only Coens classic now streaming on Starz, either: The Big Lebowski is really tying their movie library together. The new, non-Coen film fare on Starz is plentiful and excellent, as well, including Ang Lee’s heartrending romance Brokeback Mountain, Michel Gondry’s cerebral romantic dramedy Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, SNL offshoot sequel Wayne’s World 2, a whole bunch of James Bond films and, oh yeah, one of the most iconic Hollywood blockbusters of all time in Steven Spielberg’s Jaws. Those titles are all available as of May 1, while movies arriving later in the month include Bong Joon-ho horror standout The Host (May 8), Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s Oscar-nominated 2003 crime drama 21 Grams (May 10), noted 2018 Academy Award loser The Wife (May 14), Al Pacino-starring drama Scent Of A Woman (May 17), Oscar-winning Jim Crow-era crime drama Mississippi Burning (May 24) and others.

All is much quieter on the television side of the May equation, although Starz is adding new episodes of two new original series, one of which is making its debut, while the other is returning for a second season. The former is new historical-fiction series The Spanish Princess, premieres this Sunday, May 5—the period drama follows after two acclaimed Starz limited series, the Golden Globe- and Emmy-nominated The White Queen and The White Princess, both of which we highlighted in spring 2016 as worthy alternatives for fans of HBO’s Game of Thrones. The Spanish Princess, set in “the world of Tudor royal court intrigue,” is described in a Starz press release as “a vivid and captivating story told uniquely from the point of view of the women, which also sheds light on a previously untold corner of history: the lives of people of color, living and working in 16th century London.” Charlotte Hope, whom Thrones fans will recognize as Ramsay Bolton’s cruel paramour Myranda, here stars as Catherine of Aragon, the strong-willed young Princess of Spain, who has been promised the English throne since she was a child. Arriving in England alongside her court, comprising her ladies-in-waiting Lina (Stephanie Levi-John) and Rosa (Nadia Parkes), Catherine’s throne seems lost with the sudden death of her husband Prince Arthur, until she hatches a plan to get close to the kingdom’s new heir, Prince Harry, who will one day become King Henry VIII. Returning to Starz for a sophomore season, meanwhile, is Vida, a half-hour family drama that centers on two Mexican-American sisters, Emma (Mishel Prada, Fear the Walking Dead: Passage) and Lyn (Melissa Barrera, Club de Cuervos), from the east side of Los Angeles. Season two finds Lyn and Emma beginning the tall task of rebuilding their mother’s business, coming up against financial constraints, developer competition and the burgeoning anti-gentrification movement, and contemplating their relationships, as well as what their mother’s legacy means to them. Beyond those two series, Starz is adding a varied smattering of licensed TV episodes, which we’ll let you discover for yourself down below.

Don’t miss what’s leaving Starz this month, either: As of today, May 3, two Child’s Play sequels, Austin Powers In Goldmember and The Men Who Stare At Goats are already gone, but you still have time to catch 1976 horror classic Carrie, witchy mid-’90s cult hit The Craft, alien-attack blockbuster Independence Day, Spielberg smash Jurassic Park (and its first two sequels), Bret Easton Ellis adaptation Less Than Zero, another classic Coen Brothers crime drama Miller’s Crossing, iconic Stephen King adaptation Stand By Me and more before they’re gone on May 31.
