New on Netflix Canada, Shomi, CraveTV in May


A monthly look at what's scheduled to be added to the catalogues of streaming services Netflix Canada, Shomi and CraveTV:


NETFLIX: "Chelsea," debuting May 11, marks a new experiment for Netflix: it's the first time the streaming service has launched a talk show that will feature new episodes weekly. The 30-minute show, hosted by comic Chelsea Handler, will have new episodes available to stream on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

SHOMI: Comedian Louis C.K. seems less and less interested in developing new episodes of his hit series "Louie," which means the fifth season might be the last. Shomi will get the eight-episode season -- which picked up a number of Emmy nominations including one for best comedy series -- on May 27.

CRAVETV: The HBO series "Olive Kitteridge," starring Frances McDormand as the titular character, cleaned up at last year's Emmys taking home eight trophies including the award for best miniseries. The four-episode series hits CraveTV on May 6.
