May means the return of some anticipated comedies, including Netflix’s Dear White People, and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt —for what will be the fourth and final season—as well as Showtime’s I’m Dying Up Here.

This month also doesn’t shy away from seriousness with History’s Hunting Isis about American volunteers fighting terrorism on the ground in Syria and Iraq.

E!’s Citizen Rose delves into Rose McGowan’s life, and Netflix’s drama 13 Reasons Why continues to tackle teen suicide—with beefed up resources for those in need of help or support.

Viewers can also experience the NYC restaurant scene with Starz’s Sweetbitter, and take a trip back in time with PBS’ Little Women, which will premiere on Mother’s Day, and Amazon’s Picnic at Hanging Rock.

Check out these shows, and more, set to debut in May.
