Netflix Canada May 2018: Our Picks For The Best Movies And TV Shows

There are so many great shows starring funny women.

We're particularly excited about Netflix Canada's May 2018 offerings for one helluva good reason: an abundance of hilarious and smart women being featured front and centre.

For starters, we've got the fourth season of "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" — premiering May 30 — starring the hysterical Ellie Kemper and Jane Krakowski.

Next we have comedian Ali Wong's new Netflix original, "Ali Wong: Hard Knock Wife" — premiering May 13 — where she gets real about why having children is not all it's cracked up to be. #ParentingTruths

And finally, one of our favourite comedians, Tina Fey, appears as David Letterman's guest on "My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman" on May 4, where she opens up about family, the changing culture at "Saturday Night Live" and the one moment she wishes she could take back.

So what are you going to watch on Netflix Canada in May? Check out highlights below and find our selections under the gallery:
