There are places where coronavirus pandemic-related quarantines and stay-at-home orders are lifting, for better or worse. Still, some surveys indicate plenty of people are ready to self-isolate into May regardless, and three big streaming services have you covered if you're one of them. 

Netflix, for instance, is bringing us Kate Beckinsale in three Underworld movies, Jerry Seinfeld's new comedy special, 23 Hours To Kill, and on May 25th, Adam Sandler's stunning turn in the gritty hit Safdie Brothers noir, Uncut Gems

Not to be outdone, Amazon Prime is offering Upload, an original series from Greg Daniels, executive producer of past hits like The Office and Parks and Rec, as well as an Amazon Original movie, sci-fi chiller The Vast of Night.

Hulu, meanwhile, will release classic movies like Goodfellas and The Dark Knight and full seasons of hit shows including Chopped: Complete Seasons 37-39 and the 8th and 9th seasons of Discovery's street-racing reality show, Street Outlaws

If the coming month is looking alarmingly like the one that's about to end as far as getting out of the house to do, well, anything, at least we've still got some great streaming shows to see us through. Start making plans with the list of new releases—sorted by service and date—below.
