Netflix Watch Instantly To Add Dawson's Creek, More Drop Dead Diva And Other TV Shows In May

Netflix has a number of upcoming TV shows set to join their Watch Instantly line-up. Based on this list, some of what's being added in the coming weeks are new seasons to currently available shows, but also coming soon are Dawson's Creek, Discovery's show The Will: Family Secrets Revealed, and British detective series Vera.

Those who've discovered a recent craving for Dawson's Creek thanks to James van der Beek's appearances in ABC's Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 will be happy to see that the third season of Dawson's Cree will be available on Netflix Watch Instantly later in May. Hopefully they'll be putting the first two seasons on there as well. And with the fourth season of Drop Dead Diva set to premiere in early June on Lifetime, it's especially convenient to see that Season 3 will be available streaming on Netflix in late May, just in time for us to get caught up.

Here's the full list of TV shows due to hit Netflix over the next month or so. To see what movies are coming, click here!
