  • “Young Sheldon” (Season 5 finale): As someone who regularly watches this show, the season finale this year could be pretty major. It will air at 8 p.m. ET on Thursday, May 19, on CBS. It will be available to stream the day after on Paramount+.


  • “My Hero Academia” (Season 5): The dubbed fifth season of this anime will be available to stream on Hulu starting on Monday, May 23.

The movie is scheduled to come to Hulu on Friday, May 20.
