RuPaul's Drag Race Down Under and The Bold Type. Every TV show and movie dropping on Stan in May.

Somehow we've almost made it to May, which means our nights are getting colder and our binge watching sessions are getting longer.

Luckily, Stan has us sorted with a bunch of new TV shows and movies set to drop in the coming weeks. 

From reality TV, to juicy drama series and thought-provoking documentaries, we're already trying to decide what to watch first. 

Watch the official trailer for Stan Original Series RuPaul's Drag Race Down Under below. Post continues below.  

So grab your fluffiest blanket and a big ol' cup of tea, because here's everything coming to Stan in May 2021 (including our top five picks).

That's right, RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under officially kicks off next week. And we are beyond excited to see what the 10 Aussie and Kiwi queens have to offer. 

The new season will of course feature, RuPaul, who will be back hosting the show alongside veteran judge Michelle Visage. Aussie comedian Rhys Nicholson will also be joining the judging panel. 

We can also expect a bunch of special celebrity guest stars like Taika Waititi, Kylie Minogue, Dannii Minogue and more.

If you haven't seen the show, contestants are given a series of different challenges to complete each week before they get judged by RuPaul and a panel of expert and celebrity judges. Eliminations then take place each week, until only one queen is left standing.

"I cannot wait for everyone to see that Down Under queens have some of the biggest charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talents in the world," RuPaul said in a statement provided by Stan.

The Stan Original Series will be dropping on May 1, with new episodes released on Saturdays.

The Bold Type, season five.

The Bold Type is back for its fifth and final season. And it's definitely bittersweet. 

After four glorious seasons, Kat, Jane, and Sutton are saying goodbye to Scarlet Magazine. The new season will see the girls define "who they really are and how to best leave their mark on the world".

Nikohl Boosheri will also star as fan favourite Adena El-Amin. 

The new season kicks off on May 27, with new episodes released on Thursdays, the same day as the U.S.

Brought to us by the wonderful Tina Fey (executive producer), Girls5eva follows a one-hit-wonder girl group from the 90s who reunite to give their band another shot after they're sampled by a younger rapper. Only this time, they have spouses, kids, jobs, debt and all that other fun adult stuff. 

The series also stars big names like singer Sara Bareilles, actress and singer Renée Elise Goldsberry, Saturday Night Live's Paula Pell and actor and author Busy Philipps.

All episodes of the brand new series drops on May 7.

It also features her wind-powered voyage across the Atlantic Ocean to speak at the UN Climate Action Summit in New York City. 

You can watch I Am Greta from May 1.
