Here’s Everything That’s Coming to Netflix in April 2016
Even though spring is here, it still seems like the cold weather isn’t ready to let up yet. That’s totally fine by us, because that means another week (or month?) of grabbing our boos and BFFs and binge watching some Netflix. This month, more than ever, the streaming co is giving us some damn good reasons to not leave the house. Check out all the exciting new titles you need to add to your queue STAT (and check out what came to Netflix in March)!
ORIGINALS COMING TO NETFLIX IN APRIL
SHE’S BACK!! Yes, we’re talking about The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (4/15) along with her colorful cast of characters, including roommate Titus Andromedon and her employer Jacqueline Voorhees. Other originals include Team Foxcatcher (4/29), season one of music series Lost & Found Music Studios (4/1), the anime series Ajin (4/12) and season three of Cuckoo (4/15) starring Taylor Lautner.
If you’re looking for standup though, don’t miss Patton Oswalt: Talking for Clapping (4/22). Or if straight comedy is more your style, watch Ricky Gervais in Special Correspondents (4/29) or Ashton Kutcher’s new comedy The Ranch: Part 1 (4/1). Also for the first time, Netflix is launching a movie + TV series combo for kiddies called Kong King of the Apes (4/15) where the first episode is a film and the following are regular episodes. New format? We like it! Another one for the youngins is season one of Danger Mouse (4/29).
MOVIES COMING TO NETFLIX IN APRIL
There are LOTS of familiar favorites headed your way in April that will leave you feeling spoiled. First up is the tale of Wesley and Buttercup in The Princess Bride (4/1), or catch the childhood classic My Girl (4/1). If romance is on your mind (because springtime), be sure to watch Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo in Begin Again (4/27), Something’s Gotta Give (4/1) or The Next Best Thing (4/1). In case you’re in the mood for something darker and more horrifying — though in different ways, watch Boogie Nights (4/1) or Stephen King’s Cujo (4/1).
If you want something a little more thrilling and mysterious, check out Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey (4/1), A Clockwork Orange (4/1), Deep Impact (4/1), Morituri (4/1), Mystic River (4/1), The Perfect Storm (4/1), Sunset Boulevard (4/1) or V for Vendetta (4/1). For a dose of #girlbosses in film, check out Julia Roberts in Erin Brockovich (4/1) or a BBC documentary about the history of women titled The Ascent of Woman: A 10,000 Year Story (4/1). In case you need a laugh, don’t miss Best in Show (4/1) or Say It Isn’t So (4/1).
For kids (or adults who love nostalgia + light-hearted flicks), watch Dolphin Tale (4/1), Minions (4/24) and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (4/1).
TV SHOWS COMING TO NETFLIX IN APRIL
And the good stuff continues. Check out season two of ABC’s hit TV show How to Get Away With Murder (4/16), season two of TURN: Washington’s Spies (4/11), The Messengers (4/17), season five of the hilarious adult cartoon Bob’s Burgers (4/1) and season five of Lost Girl (4/17). There are lots of food and home improvement goodies landing in the library this next month, like season five of Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown (4/1), season one of Beat Bobby Flay (4/1), season two of Chip and Joanna Gaines’ HGTV hit series Fixer Upper (4/1) and season seven of Giada at Home (4/1). Also, keep the children occupied with season two of Girl Meets World (4/10)!
