It's still April, but we're already excited for what's coming to Netflix in May. The streaming service has released its master list of what will be new next month, and there's some old favorites and new series we can't wait to check out.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Season 3 (May 19)

Our favorite former cult member is off to college in the trailer for season 3, which Netflix released today. Her fabulous roomie Titus has money and boy troubles, and decides to go "Lemonading." Jon Hamm is back as cult leader Richard Wayne Gary Wayne, with other returning guest stars Amy Sedaris, Anna Camp, David Cross, Fred Armisen, and Tina Fey, with new appearances by Laura Dern, Daveed Diggs, Rachel Dratch, Ray Liotta, Andrea Martin and Maya Rudolph, according to Deadline.

Other Netflix Original series returning in May: Sense8 season 2 (May 5); Master of None season 2 (May 12); House of Cards season 5 (May 30)

The Keepers (May 19)

The Keepers is a new true crime docu-series in the vein of Making a Murderer. The seven-episode show will examine the death of 26-year-old nun, Sister Cathy Cesnik, who was murdered in November 1969 in Baltimore.

Tracy Morgan: Staying Alive (May 16)

The 30 Rock star's triumphant return to the spotlight continues with his first comedy special since a horrible car accident put him in a coma nearly three years ago. In the special, Morgan addresses how he coped with traumatic brain injury, learned to walk again, and how he "fell for" his physical therapist.

More comedy coming in May: Maria Bamford: Old Baby (May 2), Chelsea: Season 2 (streaming every Friday starting May 5), Norm Macdonald: Hitler's Dog, Gossip & Trickery (May 9), Hasan Minhaj: Homecoming King (May 23), Sarah Silverman: A Speck of Dust (May 30)
