Can I file an extension after May 17?

No, for your 2020 federal taxes, the deadline to file an extension and pay any additional taxes is midnight, May 17.

Keep in mind that if you're getting a refund this year, you (technically) don't need to file an extension because the late-filing penalty is a percentage applied to the amount you owe, and if you don't owe, there is nothing from which to calculate the penalty.
