Disney+ is prepping audiences for its upcoming feature Lightyear by releasing the documentary Beyond Infinity: Buzz and the Journey to Lightyear, which explores the evolution of the character from toy to Space Ranger. Featuring filmmakers, storytellers, artists and members of the Lightyear voice cast, the special recounts how Buzz’s original action-figure design was realized, and how that look was translated years later into a human hero.
A note on the list: streamers often announce new animation releases mid-month. Our guide only catalogs what the streamers announce at the beginning of the month, but, when possible, we try to update the schedule if there are mid-month announcements. If there are other U.S. streaming services you’d like to see added to our line-up, share a comment below.
Here’s a look at the streaming animation release calendar for the month of May:

Some fan favorite series are back with new episodes this month, along with a couple exciting new titles and a Buzz Lightyear doc just in time for his solo feature debut.
In animation for adults, Prime Video’s Fairfax is back for its second season and the streamer’s free counterpart Freevee (formerly IMDb TV) is dropping Season 4 of Corner Gas Animated. HBO Max sees the return of Birdgirl and Paramount+ will launch the made-for-streaming feature South Park: The Streaming Wars.

Netflix provides one of June’s highest-profile new animated productions in Hamish Steele’s Dead End: Paranormal Park. The show got a bit of unexpected attention earlier this month when it was name-dropped by a group of U.S. senators asking the TV Parental Guidelines Advisory Board to update its ratings system to include whether a show contains content related to sexual orientation or gender identity. Their objection, Dead End: Paranormal Park has a transgender lead. Nothing like a bit of free PR.
