Leave a comment


Start clearing out some space in your schedule, Netflix users! The online streaming platform recently revealed a weighty list of titles set to be available in April and we’re betting you’ll want to watch more than a few of these sooner rather than later.

One glance at the titles set to be available this month shows a pretty great list of old favorites, but if you’re looking for something newer to watch, Netflix has plenty to offer.

On the television front, April will bring the premiere of some of the platform’s most highly anticipated original titles including season 2 of the music drama, The Get Down (April 7), and season 2 of Chelsea Handler’s talk show, Chelsea (returning April 14). Later in the month, TV junkies will have two brand-new Netflix originals to look forward to including season 1 of Bill Nye Saves The World (April 21) and Dear White People (April 28).

Film buffs won’t be left out in the cold, however. Those looking for great family flicks will be happy to know that The BFG and the Academy Award nominated Kubo and the Two Strings will be available on April 6 and April 8, respectively. Topping off the list of animated offerings is the box office blockbuster, Secret Life of Pets, which hits the service on April 22.

Meanwhile, those looking for an uplifting drama will definitely want to check back in on April 25 when Queen of Katwe, starring Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o, and Golden Globe nominee David Oyelowo.
